The proper way to thank Allaah


If a Muslim receives a bounty or is rescued from some trial, it is recommended for him to perform the prostration of thankfulness.

Abu Bakrah (may Allaah be pleased with him) reports that: When the Prophet  (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) received something which pleased him or glad tidings, he would make prostration in thanks to Allah.

(Abu Dawood, no. 2774;. It is saheeh, and was also reported in Mishkaat al-Masaabeeh, no. 1494)

Ritual purity (tahaarah) and facing the qiblah is not a requirement to make the prostration of thankfulness, however, if one makes wudoo‘ and faces the qiblah, that is preferred.

(Majmoo Fataawa by Ibn Uthaymeen, 4/216.)
