Making dua in sajdah

Q: What I wanted to ask you is that how can one make dua in sujood? Is it allowed for one to make dua in a speaking way in sujood or you just make dua in your heart when in sujood and the second thing is that I want to know how to make dua to Allah Ta’ala and at what time when some one has wronged you, has hurt you etc, what should I pray to just complain about that person to Allah Ta’ala?



1. Both are permissible. Making dua in one’s heart or making dua verbally. However if the dua is made verbally, then the dua should be made in Arabic and the dua should conform to the duas that have been reported in the Hadith.

2. Though it is permissible to complain to Allah Ta’ala, but it is better and more rewarding to forgive the person.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
