    Are you asking how to pronounce it or how to write it in English? – aasheq May 20 '15 at 17:05

    @aasheq Both. As pronunciation is the basis for the written word in most cases. – anon May 20 '15 at 17:16
  • After the Arabic site comes, this question has to be migrated there, I guess. – servant-of-Wiser May 21 '15 at 4:01

First one is the right one, as made clear from Arabic

Allāhu Akbar (الله أكبر)

The sound of "h" is just once, not twice

In regard to your question that asked:

What is the proper usage of the Takbir?

Allahu Akbar or

Allah Hu Akbar

The answer is the first one as @Hamza Islam mentioned it correctly. In truth it is the true pronunciation of that based on right Arabic language grammar. And it has not Tashdid as the mark put over a letter to indicate that it is to be pronounced hard as if it was two letters. Therefore it ought not to be pronounced hard, and actually there is just a "h"; accordingly, the first one is true.
