Sajda’s Great Benefits

Bismillah hir Rahman nir Raheem
The Beautiful Dua’s that the Holy Prophet sallAllahu alayhi wasallam Recited Whilst in Sajda
Hadrath ‘Aisha radi allahu anha narrates that one night she did not see the Holy Prophet sallAllahu alayhi wasallam in the house so she went looking for him. She found the Holy Prophet sallAllahu alayhi wasallam in Sajda and his two feet were upright and the Holy Prophet sallAllahu alayhi wasallam was making the following Dua:
اَللّٰهُمَّ اَعُوْذُ بِرِضَاكَ مِنْ سَخَطِكَ وَ اَعُوْذُ بِمُعَانَتِكَ مِنْ عُقُوْبَتِكَ مِنْكَا لَا اُحْصِىْ ثَنَاءً عَلَيْكَ اَنْتَ كَمَا اَثْنَيْتَ عَلٰى نَفْسِكَ
O Allah, I seek refuge in Your Pleasure from Your Power, and in Your Forgiveness from Your Punishment. I cannot make Your complete Praise, You are just as You are. (Sahih Muslim, Sunan Nasai)
Hadrath Abdulla ibn ‘Abbas radi Allahu anhu narrates that one night he stayed at his aunty Maimoona’s radi Allahu anha house and the Holy Prophet sallAllahu alayhi wasallamwas also staying there. During the night the Holy Prophet sallAllahu alayhi wasallam woke up and performed wudhu and began performing Salat. While in Sajda he made the following Dua:
اَللّهُمَّ اجْعَلْ فِيْ قَلْبِي نُوْرًا وَ اجْعَلْ فِيْ سَمْعِيْ نُوْرًا وَ اجْعَلْ فِيْ بَصَرِيْ نُوْرًا وَ اجْعَل مِنْ تَحْتِيْ نُوْرًا وَ اجْعَلْ مِنْ فَوْقِيْ نُوْرًا وَ اجْعَلْ عَنْ يَمِيْنِيْ نُوْرًا وَ اجْعَلْ يَسَارِيْ نُوْرًا وَ اجْعَلْ اَمَامِيْ نُوْرًا وَ اجْعَلْ خَلْفِيْ نُوْرًا وَ اَعْظِمْ لِيْ نُوْرًا
O Allah, Place Noor into my heart, place Noor into my ears, place Noor in my eyes, place Noor below me, place Noor above me, place Noor on my right side, place Noor on my left side, place Noor in front of me, place Noor behind me and increase for me Noor.
The Holy Prophet sallAllahu alayhi wasallam then went to sleep. (Sahih Muslim, Sunan Nasai) 
The Benefits of Sajda
Hadrath Me’daan radi Allahu anhu narrates that he met Hadrath Thu’baan radi Allahu anhu a helper of the Holy Prophet sallAllahu alayhi wasallam and asked him, ‘Show me an action which will enter me into Jannah.’ He remained quiet for a while, then he turned to me and said, ‘Continue making Sajda. Since I heard the Holy Prophet (sallAllahu alayhi wasallam) say that if a servant of Allah makes a Sajda for the sake of Allah then Allah will increase his station one degree and forgive one of his sins.’ Hadrath Me’daan radi Allahu anhu says he walked along further and met Hadrath Abu Darda radi Allahu anhu who gave him the same advice. (Tirmidhi and Sunan Nasai)
Hadrath Abu Huraira radi Allahu anhu narrates that the Holy Prophet sallAllahu alayhi wasallam said, ‘A servant of Allah is very close to Allah when he is in Sajada make excessive Dua while in Sajda.’(Sahih Muslim and Sunan Nasai)
One day the Sahaba radi Allahu anhum were sitting together and the discussion was about the Shafa’at of the Holy Prophet sallAllahu alayhi wasallam in the Aakhira. Hadrath Abu Saeed Khudri radi allahu anhu was narrating about what would occur at the Pul Siraat. After everyone has done their reckoning, and whoever was given Shafa’at will be taken out from the fire. Then the other Ambiya and people will be allowed to make Shafa’at for who they can. The people who can intercede will recognise the people to be saved because the fire of jahanum will punish them except the limbs that touched the ground during the Sajda. (Sunan Nasai)
