Keeping the back stright in ruku’

Q: Sometimes in rukoo’ I do the thikr and then I straighten myself a bit and hear a crack, so does that mean my back only became straight when it cracked? If so do I do the thikr again? Must the back in sujood rukoo sitting and standing always be straight or at ease straight? Is the neck or head considered in this?



  1. No
  2. All the limbs should be at ease at the time one performs these posture in their correct manner.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
