When should one commence reciting Rabbana-lakal-hamd?


  1. When following the Imaam, is Rabbana-lakal-hamd recited while getting up from ruku, or once in the standing position?
  2. What is best to recite after getting up from ruku? I have been told slight variations of the above.



  1. One should recite it in the standing position.
  2. In Fardh Salaah the Muqtadi should recite رَبَّنَا لَكَ الْحَمْد behind the Imaam.

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