Is it permissible to recite the invocations of ruku and sajdah one time which we normally recite three times?
The Answer

Dear Brother / Sister,

It is fard to wait in ruku and sajdah long enough to say "subhana rabbiyal azim" (Glory be to my Lord Almighty) or "subhana rabbiyal a'la" (Glory be to my Lord, the Most High). It is sunnah to say three times "subhana rabbiyal azim" in ruku and "subhana rabbiyal a'la" in sajdah. This is the minimum number of invocations that are said in ruku and sajdah. It is mustahab (recommended) to increase this number to five or seven as long as it is odd. However, the imam should not do this more than three times. (al-Hidaya - al-Muhit / Sarakhsi)

The Islamic canonist experts say that the minimum number of invocations is three, the average of it is five and the perfect of it is seven.

It is also permissible to recite the invocations of ruku and sajdah one time. By this way, the fard is fulfilled.
