The Mark of The Believer’s Forehead is Physical Mark or Light On Face?

Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen (may Allaah preserve him) was asked: “Is there any report to indicate that the mark on the forehead caused by sujood is a sign of the righteous?”

He replied:

“This is not one of the signs of the righteous; the sign is the light (noor ) which appears on the face, and being content and at peace, a good attitude, and the like.

As for the mark made by sujood on the face, it may appear on the faces of people who do not even pray the obligatory prayers, if their skin is very soft and sensitive (e.g. it is common for people with Hyperpigmentation to have patches of skin become darker in colour than the normal surrounding skin), and it may not appear of the faces of people  who pray a lot and make lengthy sujood.”

(Fataawaa Islamiyyah, 1/484)

In conclusion, then, if you are sincere towards Allaah and seek to earn His pleasure when you pray, then what people say will not affect you; in fact, their praise of you may be a kind of hastening of glad tidings for you in this world. So follow the Sunnah and do sujood properly, and then do not worry about whether people praise you or condemn you. We ask Allaah to make you sincere and to accept your prayers.

If Allah makes you stand up you will never fall, and if he lets you fall and leaves you to yourself, you will always fall.
