سجد وجهي للذي خلقه، وشق سمعه وبصره، بحوله وقوته



Sayyidah ‘Aaishah (radiyallahu ‘anha) says, ‘Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) would recite the following du’a when he would make Sajdah Tilawat [After reciting a verse of Sajdah] at night:

Sajada wajhi lilladhi khalaqahu wa shaqqa sam’ahu wa basarahu bihawlihi wa quwwatihi

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
