🍂 BENEFITS OF PROSTRATION 🍂
Sajdah (prostration) is a unique position or stance in the regular prayers, which a Muslim is supposed to offer at least five times a day. Although the basic purpose of obligatory prayers is not to provide exercise, yet it is being increasingly recognized that it has plenty of medical advantages for the human body.
The Prophet ﷺ mentioned in a Hadeeth collected by Ibn Majah رضي الله عنه that prayer is a cure for many diseases. A person who offers his prayers regularly, especially in the mosque, is protected from many ailments; some of which the believer may not even know. The position of Sajdah in which the forehead touches the earth is exclusively associated with the Muslim form of prayer. It is the climax of a Muslim's prayer and as mentioned in a Hadeeth as the position in which a Muslim is nearest to Allah The Almighty.
Abu Hurairah رضي الله عنه reported in Saheeh Bukhari that the Messenger of Allah, ﷺ said: "The nearest a servant comes to his Lord is when he is prostrating himself, so make supplication (in this state)."
Aa`ishah, رضي الله عنها narrates that the Prophet ﷺ used to prolong the prostration to such an extent that one could recite fifty verses (of the Quran) before he lifted his head. (Al-Bukhari) 📖 •
In another Hadeeth narrated by Anas bin Malik, may Allah be pleased with him, the Prophetﷺ advised Muslims to perform Ruku' (bowing) and Sajdah properly. •
Hence, the first positive effect upon a person who prostrates or does Sajdah is that he comes nearest to Allah The Almighty and hence in that condition he can supplicate. This is a great psychological advantage and it gives relief to the person concerned, as life is full of worries and in this position he gets at least a transient refuge and succor. •
