Sunnah 116: Make du’a in your sujood

September 24, 2010

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

The Prophet (pbuh) said: “The closest that a servant is to his Lord is when he is in prostration, so supplicate much in it” (Muslim)

The Prophet (pbuh) taught us that when we are in prostration, we are the closest we can be to God, and thus this is the best place for du’a. The Prophet (pbuh) also told us that we will be recognizable on the Day of Judgment because of the marks of sujood:

“My ummah on that day will surely have bright faces because of sujood, and bright arms and feet because of ablution.” [Ahmad]

Thus keep in mind, whenever you prostrate, that you are now closest to your Lord. To read more about the beauty of sujood (prostration), click here.

    Asalam o alikum. I am not able to find this hadidh in Muslim, “The closest that a servant is to his Lord is when he is in prostration, so supplicate much in it”

      It can be found in the book of prayer, in the section on what is said in rukoo and sujood. Here is the Arabic reference:

      صحيح مسلم » كتاب الصلاة » باب ما يقال في الركوع والسجود

      وحدثنا هارون بن معروف وعمرو بن سواد قالا حدثنا عبد الله بن وهب عن عمرو بن الحارث عن عمارة بن غزية عن سمي مولى أبي بكر أنه سمع أبا صالح ذكوان يحدث عن أبي هريرة أن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم قال أقرب ما يكون العبد من ربه وهو ساجد فأكثروا الدعاء
