Reciting the tasbeeh once in ruku and sajda

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: Is it acceptable if I recite subhaana rabbial azeem in Ruku and subhaana rabbial a’la in sujud one time only instead of three times in the case when there is limited time available. For example I am performing Sunnah Salaah and Jamat has started or Qadha time is near etc.


A: The Salaah will be valid. However it is better to read it at least thrice in order to conform to the Sunnah.

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

و يقول في ​كوعه سبحان ربّي العظيم ثلاثا و ذلك أدناه (الفتاوى الهندية 1/74)

وصرحوا بأنه يكره أن ينقص عن الثلاث وأن الزيادة مستحبة بعد أن يختم على وتر خمس أو سبع ما لم يكن إماما فلا يطول (رد المحتار 1/494)
