When you are in sujood, your eyes see nothing. Your eyes face the ground to disconnect yourself from your worldly matters. You’re in sujood to detach yourself from material possessions. When you’re in sujood, you are reminded you are being connected to God and God only.

There are fifteen(*) verses in the Quran that praise those who “prostrate to Allah.” Showing humility to Allah, bowing down and prostrating to Allah alone, is what separates believers from unbelievers. Muslims prostrate several times in their daily prayers. When reading these verses we should perform an extra prostration, to show our willingness to humble ourselves before Allah. This is known as “sajdat al-tilaawah” (prostration of recitation).

  • “See you not that to Allah prostrates whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth, and the sun, the moon, the stars, the mountains, the trees, all living creatures, and many of mankind? (22:18)

this is one of the aaya in quran where you have to perform sujood at tilaawah
