سَجَـدَ وَجْهـي للَّـذي خَلَقَـهُ وَشَقَّ سَمْـعَـهُ وَبَصَـرَهُ بِحَـوْلِـهِ وَقُـوَّتِهِ ﴿فتَبـارَكَ اللهُ أَحْسَـنُ الخـالِقيـن

Sajada wajhiya lillahi khalaqahu, wa shaqqa sam’ahu, wa basarahu, wa bihaulihi wa quwwatihi

My face (myself) prostrates itself to him who created it and brought forth its hearing and seeing by his might and power.
