Prostration is a spiritual moment that the servant communicates with his Creator, so he feels reassurance and comfort, and the servant is closer to his Lord while he is prostrating, if he has feared in prayer, and he directs his heart to God with sincerity, and leaves all the affairs of the world behind his back and he only feels the presence of a Creator who hears and sees him, so he recalls and resorts to him in every His affairs.
The Messenger of God, may God’s prayers and peace be upon him, was aggravated by something that found his comfort in prayer and prostration, and he was commanding Bilal to give his call to him, saying: (Relax us with it, Bilal) , [1] and he meant that prayer, so he was praying and prolonging prostration, feeling peace and tranquility, and calling his Lord until It comes with vulva. Therefore, a Muslim must pray with reverence and worship, and try to prolong the prostration to feel close to God, and to have his prostration as the prostration of the Prophet, may God’s prayers and peace be upon him.

Types of prostration

There are two types of prostration mentioned in the Holy Qur’an: [19]
  • Optional prostration : This type is specific to man, and this prostration deserves reward from God Almighty, as stated in the Noble Qur’an: (So ​​worship God and be worshiped) , [20] i.e. humble themselves to God.
  • Prostration Taskhiri : be this kind inclusive of all human from, animal, plant, and inanimate objects, the meaning of what he said the Almighty: (God and worship in the heavens and the earth , voluntarily and involuntarily) , [21] and says: (and the star and trees Asadjadan) . [22] This verse is not intended to prostrate a person in his prayer, but rather is the subjection of rigid objects to God Almighty in response to his obedience.
And it was mentioned in the Holy Qur’an that supports these two types of prostration with many Qur’anic verses, the example of which is the following verse: (And to God prostrate to what is in the heavens and what is in the land, whether it is a treasury and the angels and a lot of them) . [23]
