Sura 50
Aya 40
وَمِنَ اللَّيلِ فَسَبِّحهُ وَأَدبارَ السُّجودِ

Yusuf Ali

And during part of the night, (also,) celebrate His praises, and (so likewise) after the postures1 of adoration.
  • The general meaning of after the postures of adoration would be the contemplation and remembrance of God after prayers. Those who would connect this passage with the five canonical prayers understand these further prayers “following the sujud or postures of adoration” to mean the extra or supernumerary prayers known as nafl, also the use of the Rosary or the fingers in remembering the Names of God.
