Why are Muslims celebrating like this in the Qatar World Cup? It’s called Sajdat Al-Shukr and this is why we perform it! #fifa #worldcup

Sajdat al-Shukr, or the prostration of thankfulness is prescribed for anything that makes one happy, whether it is attaining some benefit or warding off some harm.

Abu Bakrah (may Allah be pleased with him), who said that when the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) heard any news that made him glad, he would fall down prostrating to Allaah, may He be exalted.
