Reciting thanaa when commencing salaah

Q: I am offering namaz as a muqtadi in the mosque. I want to know that at the start of the prayer when we say "Allah hu Akbar" do we have to say "Sanna" only or do we have to say "Ta'awwuz" and "Tasmia" as well after the "Allah hu Akbar"?

A: Only read the thanaa.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
