To be close to Allāh, you have to go into sujood. The Prophet ﷺ said, “The closest that a servant is to his Lord is when he is in prostration.” (Muslim)
The prostration is so important that Satan hates us for it. It has been narrated that when the son of Adam recites the verse of Sajdah (prostration) and then falls down in prostration, Satan goes into seclusion and weeps and says: “Woe unto me, the son of Adam was commanded to prostrate, and he prostrated and Paradise was entitled to him and I was commanded to prostrate, but I refused and am doomed to Hell.” (Muslim)
..But they plan, and Allāh plans. And Allāh is the best of planners. [Qur’an 8:30]
So have faith in Him and trust in Him and although, sometimes we may not understand the reason behind certain things, know that as long as you obey Him, whatever He will do for you is, in fact for your betterment.
