Indeed sujood is one of the most beautiful, most special and most elevating acts of worship a believer can do to His Most High Creator.
We learn from the Prophetic sayings of The Last Messenger of Allah Muhammad (peace be upon him) that:
“A slave becomes nearest to his Lord when he is in prostration. So increase supplications while prostrating.” [Muslim] It is an act of utter humility before the Might of The Creator of Heavens and the earth and everything in between them, the King and Sustainer of the Heavens and the earth. Where do we find happiness? Not material happiness, but true internal happiness. As Muslims, we may respond that true happiness in this world comes from being closer to God. The closer you are to Allah, the more your heart is at rest. This is why the Prophet ﷺ chose to be with Allah, saying “God has given a slave the choice between immortality in this world for as long as God wills, or meeting his Lord, and he has chosen to meet his Lord.” When Abu Bakr (radi Allahu `anhu – may Allah be pleased with him) heard this he wept, because he knew that the Prophet ﷺhad chosen being with Allah over this life.
To be close to Allah, you have to go into sujood. The Prophet ﷺ said:
أَقْرَبُ مَا يَكُونُ الْعَبْدُ مِنْ رَبِّهِ وَهُوَ سَاجِدٌ
“The closest that a servant is to his Lord is when he is in prostration.” (Muslim)
The more you humble yourself and go into sujood, the closer you are getting to Allah; and indeed, He elevates you. The Prophet ﷺ said:
من تواضع لله رفعه
“Whoever humbles himself before Allah, Allah will elevate him.” (Muslim)
This is why, whenever the Prophet ﷺ received something that pleased him, he would immediately prostrate to Allah in thanks. Allah has said in the Qur’an to the Prophet ﷺ
