Ruling 1109

It is recommended that one perform the prostration for offering thanks sajdat al-shukr after prayers, and it is sufficient if he places his forehead on the ground with the intention of offering thanks. However, it is better that he say the following phrase 100 times, or three times, or once: ‘shukran lillāh’ [‘I am very grateful to Allah’]; or: ‘shukran’ [‘I am very grateful (to You, O Allah)!’]; or: ‘ʿafwan’ [‘Bestow Your pardon (on me, O Allah)!’]. It is also recommended that whenever a blessing comes to someone or tribulation is averted from him, he should perform sajdat al‐shukr.
