Dua After Rising From Ruku Meaning
The Dua after rising from Ruku means Our Lord, praise is Yours, abundant, good and blessed praise.
However, if a person following an lmam in a congregational prayer is not able to complete the above supplication it suffices to say “Rabbana wa lakaalhamd“.
It is also advisable for the lmam, the follower or one who prays alone to add further the supplication here below:
مِلْءَ السَّمَوَاتِ وَمِلْءَ الأَرْضِ، وَمَا بَيْنَهُمَا، وَمِلْءَ مَا شِئْتَ مِنْ شَيءٍ بَعْدُ. أَهلَ الثَّناءِ وَالْمَجْدِ، أَحَقُّ مَا قَالَ الْعَبْدُ، وَكُلُّنَا لَكَ عَبْدٌ. اللَّهُمَّ لاَ مَانِعَ لِمَا أَعْطَيْتَ، وَلاَ مُعْطِيَ لِمَا مَنَعْتَ، وَلاَ يَنْفَعُ ذَا الجَدِّ مِنْكَ الجَدُّ
Mil’as-samaawaati wa mi’al-‘ardhi wa maa baynahumaa, wa mil’a maa shi’ta min shay ‘in ba’d. ‘Ahlath-thanaa’i walmajdi, ‘ahaqqu maa qaalal-‘abdu, wa kullunaa laka ‘abdun. Allaahumma laa maani’a limaa ‘a’tayta, wa laa mu’tiya limaa mana’ta, wa laa yanfa’uthal-jaddi minkal-jadd.
Translation In English
(A praise that) fills the heavens and the earth and what lies between them, and whatever else You please. (You Allah) are most worthy of praise and majesty, and what the slave has said, we are all Your slaves. O Allah, there is none who can withhold what You give, and none may give what You have withheld. And the might of the mighty person cannot benefit him against You.
While in the standing position after Rukuu, the person is advised to place both hands over the chest in the same manner before bowing, since, this was the practice of the Prophet (PBUH).
Dua After Ruku Hadith
Narrated Rifa`a bin Rafi` Az-Zuraqi: One day we were praying behind the Prophet. When he raised his head from bowing, he said, “Sami`a l-lahu liman hamidah.” A man behind him said, “Rabbana wa laka l-hamdu, hamdan kathiran taiyiban mubarakan fihi” (O our Lord! All the praises are for You, many good and blessed praises).
When the Prophet completed the prayer, he asked, “Who has said these words?” The man replied, “I.” The Prophet said, “I saw over thirty angels competing to write it first.” Prophet rose (from bowing) and stood straight till all the vertebrae of his spinal column came to a natural position.
