Sajdah is an expression of homage peculiar to Islam. It expresses physically the worshippers’ humility and sense of utter insignificance before God. It has often been translated as ‘prostration’ which, however, is stretching flat on the ground. In Sajdah one bends the knees to a sitting position, resting the palms and the forehead on the ground in one complete action, facing the Ka‘bah.
