The Messenger of Allah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) used to recite
in his bowing and prostration:
[ You are the Most Glorious. The Most Holy. You the Rubb of the angels and of Jibril.]
[ Sahih Muslim ].
Commentary: "Subbuh'' and "Quddus'' are two attributive Names of Allah which
denote His Perfect Purity and Uniqueness. "Ar-Ruh'' means Jibril (Gabriel).
Although he, too, comes in the category of angels but his special mention is made
here to emphasize his majesty and honour. In short, the recitation of the prayers
mentioned in this Hadith is in keeping with the practice of the Prophet (PBUH).
