Prostration after mentioning Allaahs Names

Is it permissible for me to prostrate a fixed number of times after mentioning Allaahs Names or one of His Names, or not?

We do not know of any evidence from the Book of Allaah or the Sunnah of His Messenger to prove that it is lawful to do so, nor has it reached us that any of the Companions of the Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam) did so, and it has been authentically reported from the Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam) that he said: Whoever performs a deed which is not from this matter of ours, will have it rejected.
