Volume 001 :: Book 012 (Characteristics Of Prayer) :: Hadith 714
Narated By Al-Bara : (And Al-Bara was not a liar)
Whenever we offered prayer with the Prophet and he raised his head from the bowing, we used to remain standing till we saw him prostrating.
Volume 001 :: Book 012 (Characteristics Of Prayer) :: Hadith 761
Narated By Abu Huraira :
When the Prophet said, “Sami’ a-l-lahu Liman hamida,” (Allah heard those who sent praises to Him), he would say, “Rabbana wa-laka-l-hamd.” On bowing and raising his head from it the Prophet used to say Takbir. He also used to say Takbir on rising after the two prostrations. (See Hadith No. 656).
Volume 001 :: Book 012 (Characteristics Of Prayer) :: Hadith 762
Narated By Abu Huraira :
Allah’s Apostle said, “When the Imam says, “Sami’ a-l-lahu Liman hamida,” you should say, “Allahumma Rabbana laka-l-hamd.” And if the saying of any one of you coincides with that of the angels, all his past sins will be forgiven.”
Volume 001 :: Book 012 (Characteristics Of Prayer) :: Hadith 764
Narated By Rifa’a bin Rafi AzZuraqi :
One day we were praying behind the Prophet. When he raised his head from bowing, he said, “Sami’a-l-lahu Liman hamida.” A man behind him said, “Rabbana walaka-l hamd 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.

Narated By Al-Bara’ bin ‘Azib : (And he was not a liar)
We used to pray behind the Prophet and when he said, “Sami’ a-l-lahu Liman hamida”, none of us would bend his back (to go for prostration) till the Prophet had placed his, forehead on the ground.
