Dua for While rukoo

When Muslims go into rukoo while offering their daily Salah, they recite Subhaana Rabbiyal-'Adheem (Glory to my Lord the Exalted) three times. This dua is one of the best ways to proclaim the glory of Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَتَعَالَى) while praying. It is an integral part of salah; the daily salah is incomplete without reciting this dua in rukoo. It is a great way to declare the glory and perfection of Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَتَعَالَى) while standing in front of Him.

The Prophet Muhammad () while praying. The dua declares the glory of  Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَتَعَالَى) and praises Him (Sunan an-Nasa'i 1145). Hudhaifah(رَضِيَ ٱللَّٰهُ عَنْهُ) reported about this dua in a separate event in (Sunan an-Nasa'i 1133) and  (Sunan an-Nasa'i 1046). The dua while rukoo has also been narrated by Aishah (رَضِيَ ٱللَّٰهُ عَنْهَا) in (Sunan an-Nasa'i 1122) and (Sunan an-Nasa'i 1123).
