Imam MalikThere is nothing determined from the worshiper.The tradition of Ibn 'Abbas (RA).
Imam Shafi'i, Imam Abu Hanifa, Imam AhmadThe worshiper should repeat the words of praise 3 times. This based on hadeeth of 'Uqba bin 'Amir. In bowing, worshiper should say "Glorify the name of your mighty Lord" (3 times) and in prostration, he should say, "Glorify the name of your most high Lord".
