Wa’alaykum as Salām wa rahmatullāhi wa barakātuhu,

In principle, making Duʿā in one’s mind during the Sajdah position of Ṣalāh does not affect the validity of one’s Ṣalāh.

However, you should not remain silent for a period longer than the duration that it takes to recite SubahanAllah thrice (3-5 seconds), since that will nullify the prayer.

We advise the following practices in respect to Duʿā and Ṣalāh:

  • Making Duʿā between the Adhān and the Iqāmāh.
  • Making Duʿā after a Farḍ Ṣalāh.
  • Verbally making Duʿā in Arabic in the Sajdah of a Nafl Ṣalāh.
