Raising one‟s head from rukoo‟ then realizing that one forgot to say the tasbeeh. What one should do?

 

 

 

If a person raises his head from rukoo‘ then remembers that he did not say the tasbeeh of rukoo‘, he should not return to the rukoo‘ because the requirement for supplication of rukoo‘ is no longer applicable by virtue of his having raised his head. If he returns to the rukoo‘ intentionally, this action would render his prayer invalid since he has added an extra rukn (obligatory act of the prayer) which is this second, superfluous, rukoo‘. However, if it was due to ignorance or forgetfulness, his prayer will not be nullified, but in this case he must make the prostration of forgetfulness if he was praying individually or leading a congregation. This is because saying tasbeeh (subhaana Rabbi al-Azeem, How Perfect is my Lord, the Supreme) is waajib (obligatory), and if one forgets it, it can be compensated for by making the prostration of forgetfulness. If he was praying behind an imaam and forgets the tasbeeh, then he is no longer considered to have omitted an obligatory act.
(al-Mughni ma‘a al-Sharh al-Kabeer, 1/679).
