A du’a Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) would recite in Sajdah Tilawah

Question

Can you please confirm the authenticity of the following du’a to recite in Sajdah Tilawah:

سجد وجهي للذي خلقه، وشق سمعه وبصره، بحوله وقوته

 

Answer

Sayyidah ‘Aaishah (radiyallahu ‘anha) says, ‘Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) would recite the following du’a when he would make Sajdah Tilawat [After reciting a verse of Sajdah] at night:

Sajada wajhi lilladhi khalaqahu wa shaqqa sam’ahu wa basarahu bihawlihi wa quwwatihi

(Sunan Tirmidhi, Hadith: 580-3425, Sunan Abi Dawud, Hadith :1409)

 

Imam Tirmidhi (rahimahullah) has declared the Hadith authentic (hasanun sahih).

 

Translation

I have prostrated my face to the One Who created it, granted its ability to hear and see, through His Ability and Power

 

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
