عن أبي هريرة أنه كان يكبر في كل صلاة من المكتوبة وغيرها، في رمضان وغيره، فيكبر حين يقوم، ثم يكبر حين يركع، ثم يقول: سمع الله لمن حمده. ثم يقول: ربنا ولك الحمد. قبل أن يسجد، ثم يقول: الله أكبر حين يهوي ساجدًا، ثم يكبر حين يرفع رأسه من السجود، ثم يكبر حين يسجد، ثم يكبر حين يرفع رأسه من السجود، ثم يكبر حين يقوم من الجلوس في الاثنتين، ويفعل ذلك في كل ركعة حتى يفرغ من الصلاة، ثم يقول حين ينصرف: والذي نفسي بيده، إني لأقربكم شبها بصلاة رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم إن كانت هذه لصلاته حتى فارق الدنيا.

Abu Hurayrah (may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him) used to say takbīr in every obligatory and supererogatory prayer, during Ramadan and outside it. He would say takbīr when he rose and say takbīr when he bowed. Then, he would say: Allah hears he who praises Him. Then, he would say: Our Lord, praise be to You, before prostrating. Then, he would say: Allah is the Most Great, as he went down to prostration. Then, he would say takbīr upon raising his head from prostration and then say takbīr upon prostrating and then say takbīr upon rising from prostration. Then, he would say takbīr upon rising from the sitting position in both times. He would do so in every rak‘ah until he finished the prayer. Then, he would say as he left: "By the One in Whose Hand my soul is, I am the most closest among you to the Prophet's prayer. Such was his prayer until he departed this world."

Explanation

Abu Hurayrah (may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him) used to say takbīr in every obligatory and supererogatory prayer, during Ramadan and outside it. He would say takbīr when he rose. This indicates that the takbīr of ihrām is to be said while standing. Takbīr is one of the pillars of prayer, and standing is a pillar for one who is able. And he would say takbīr when he bowed. Then, he would say "Allah hears he who praises Him" and then say: "Our Lord, praise be to You" while standing, before prostrating. This demonstrates that tahmīd (Saying: praise be to Allah) is the dhikr to be said as he stands upright, and then takbīr is to be said as he begins to go down to prostration. Then, he would say takbīr upon raising his head from prostration and then say takbīr upon prostrating - for the second time - and then say takbīr upon rising from prostration. Then, he would say takbīr upon rising from the sitting position in both times - as he rises from the first tashahhud. He would do so in every rak‘ah until he finishes the prayer. Then, Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him) would say as he left the place: By the One in Whose Hand my soul is, I am the most closest among you to the Prophet's prayer. Such was his prayer until he departed this world.
