What prayers can be recited in prostration?

When the servant goes in prostration, he goes closer to Allah. Prostration means bowing one’s head in the court of the Lord. The word sijdah is originally Arabic. Literally means – humility, modesty, bowing down, surrendering, leaning, keeping the face on the ground, etc.

In other words, for the purpose of worshiping Allah, the seven limbs of the human being fall down to the ground with humility: The worship that is performed is called prostration. The seven limbs we know directly from the hadith narrated in Sahih Bukhari and Muslim Sharif, in the hadith narrated from Abdullah bin Abbas (ra) he said, the Messenger of Allah (saw) said, ‘I have seven bones of the body; For example, it has been instructed to prostrate with the forehead, two hands, two knees, and the tips of the feet, including the nose. And it is forbidden to tie clothes, beard and hair together. (Mishkat, Hadith: 6)
