:bismillah:

I am highly confused by the article on sajda e shukr in duas.org

Imam Reza (a.s.) has said that while making the prostration of thanksgiving, a person should say   'Shukran lillah'   atleast three times. Also he should say a 100 times 'Afwan' or 'Shukran'.   Either in prostration he should first say a hundred times   Afwan or 'Al-afu Al-afu.' Then he should keep the right cheek at the place of prostration and s make any supplication as, for example,   Ya Allaho, Ya Rabbaho,   Ya Syedaho.   Similarly he should keep his left cheek at the place of prostration and say the same words. In the end he should place his forehead at the same spot and repeat   Shukran Shukran ya Shukran Allah a hundred times.

1) Is it pronounced (afwan) or (afwaaan)?

2) After placing my right cheek and saying the above mentioned,can I make personal supplications in my languages for my need,,is it same with left cheek or no?

3) Is placing of cheeks also done on turbah?

4). Should I kiss's the turbah? I. KNo it's Nott mandatory but why people do it?

@sunnilove2hussain - salaam,

This goes for all of us - please keep in mind the form of the ritual is important but the essence of it even more so.

Make every word count and utter from the heart.
