The Medical Benefits of Sajdah (Prostration)

Sajdah (Prostration)

Sajdah (Prostration) is a unique position or stance in the regular prayers, which Muslims offer at least five times a day (multiple times in each prayer). However the basic purpose of obligatory (Fardh) prayers is not to provide an exercise for people, yet it is being increasingly recognized that it has plenty of medical advantages for the human body. Here it is worth mentioning that Prophet Muhammad(SAW) has mentioned in a hadith by Ibn Majah that prayer is a cure for many diseases. The fact is that a person who offers his/her prayers regularly is protected from many diseases which he/she may not even know.

The position of Sajdah in which the forehead touches the earth is exclusively associated with the Muslim form of prayer. It is the climax of a Muslim’s prayer and as mentioned in a Hadith a Muslim is nearest to Allah in this position.
The Medical Benefits of Sajdah (Prostration)
People are exposed daily to many different problems. They may also be exposed to many electrostatic charges from the atmosphere. These charges are affect the central nervous systems (CNS) supersaturating it. One has to rid themselves of these extra charges, otherwise, they will have headaches, neck aches, muscle spasms, etc. The best way to get rid of these extra electrostatic charges is by dissipating them and discharging them from the body. In as much as an electrical appliance is in need of grounding (earthing) by the use of an electric cord, a human being has to “earth” him/herself to the ground as well. By putting, his/her forehead on the ground, because the thinking capacity of the brain is in the forelobe and not the topmost portion of the brain, one dissipates the extra electrostatic charges from the brain and the central nervous system to the ground. Therefore, one will receive piece of mind and soul. By doing prayer five times a day, with each prayer having several prostrations in it, a person will undoubtedly feel more peace, happiness, and relaxation. This type of approach does not cost money and does not have any side effects. It is very natural. This is the best method for allowing a person to continue to live in peace, harmony, obedience, and happiness for the rest of his/her life.
Above all, a Muslim who performs prostration on the floor as a sign of obedience will attain tremendous rewards and blessings from our Creator, God Almighty Allah.
Sajda (Prostration) Benefits, According to Sunnah & Hadith
Abu Huraira (ra) reported that the messenger of Allah(God) said:

The nearest a servant comes to his Lord is when he is prostrating himself, so make supplication (in this state)
[Sahih al-Bukhari]

A’ishah Siddiqa (ra) narrates:

Prophet (saw) used to prolong the prostration to such an extent that one could recite fifty verses (of the Qur’an) before he would lift his head.
[Sahih al-Bukhari]

In another Hadith narrated by Anas bin Malik (ra) the Prophet (saw) advised Muslims to perform Ruku (bowing) and Sajdah properly. In another Hadith he advised to perform Sajdah and Bowing calmly and to get up only when the body has come to ease.
Grounding Helps Thin Dangerously Thick Blood and Fights Inflammation and Disease
By Dr Mercola,
‘The terms “earthing” and “grounding” are interchangeable. It is simply the act of placing your bare feet on the earth, or walking barefoot. When you do, free electrons are transferred from the earth into your body, and this grounding effect is one of the most potent antioxidants we know of.
Unfortunately, few people ever walk barefoot anymore to experience it.
Hopefully, as more and more people become aware of the importance of being grounded, this will change, or at the very least spawn a much needed change in the way most footwear is made. Synthetic rubber soles disconnect you from the earth. Leather soles do not. So you can still find shoes that allow you to remain grounded without going barefoot.
(Prostration / Sajda is a way of grounding to earth.)

Grounding has numerous benefits, aside from creating a general feeling of well-being. For example, walking barefoot can help ameliorate the constant assault of electromagnetic fields and other types of radiation from cell phones, computers and Wi-Fi.

By getting outside, barefoot, touching the earth, and allowing the excess charge in your body to discharge into the earth, you can alleviate some of the stress put on your system. That is the grounding effect. I have personally prioritized grounding myself to the earth as much as possible for over 5 years.”
