Duas Done in Sujood (Prostration)
  • Question:

    Are duas done in sujood more pious and stand better chance of being fulfilled than those done while sitting?


    Assalamu Alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh

    Thank you for your question.

    Generally, duas supplicated at any time can be accepted by Allah Almighty. However, there are certain occasions wherein there is a higher chance of the dua being heard. One of those occasions is definitely while one is in prostration to Allah.

    This is due to the narration below:

    “The nearest a servant can be to his Lord is while in prostration, hence excessively make dua [in that position].” (Muslim, Abu Dawud, Nasai & Musnad Ahmad)

    And Allah knows best.
