Scriptures fro all the religions and Faith proclaim that all living being and everything is and in the image of almighty Supreme Divine power what we call God by various names. Hence, to love, respect, and live peacefully with each other and take care of persons and living being in need is in truest form " Sajda", prostration to Allah and God.The Urdu word Sajda or Sajdah that keeps on appearing in Hindi songs forever is an Arabic word meaning prostration to God in the direction of the Kaaba in Mecca. Sajda is usually done during the daily prayers. In simpler terms, Sajda is a posture in prayer where one bends one's head in submission to God. Sajda is considered the utmost stage of submission, hence, when someone says he/she performed a Sajda, it means she/she devoted herself /himself completely to someone else. During our program, we will attempt to use its meaning on a broader sense, i.e. not only prostration to Allah or God of any faith but also to any beloved, be it a Guru, Friend, Nature, lover, Spouse etc.
