Ruling 1109

It is recommended that one performs 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 says 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 a tribulation is averted from him, he should perform sajdat al‐shukr.
