In salat, when you come back (stand up) from Ruku', you say:
"Samiallahu liman hamida"
Is it pronounced "hammida" or "hameeda"?
I pronounced it hammida, so I am not sure if it is correct or not.

In order to elucidate the issue you'd better pay heed that according to the correct Arabic grammar, the exact pronunciation of Same'allah-o Leman "Hamedah" is Hamedah (حمده). Of course, it seems that in Arabic language, most of Arab people pronounce the letter "E" as/like "I". For instance, the word Mohammed is written Muhammed, but some Arabs pronounce it as if they are saying Mohammid! Otherwise as I illustrated before, the precise pronunciation of the mentioned word is Hamedah as it is written Hamedah in its Arabic text.
Namely it is written in Arabic like the following phrase:
«سَمِعَ اللّهُ لِمَنْ حَمِدَهُ»
It can be inferred from the main Arabic text of the above-mentioned phrase that HAMEDAH is the most right form of that (although based on some Arabic accents it is heard as Hemidah).
