Preserving the Jewels of Islaamic Knowledge

Our Shadows Prostrate to Allaah.What about us?

Posted by tayybahppn on April 8, 2009


Allaah says ,

أَوَلَم يَرَوا إِلىٰ ما خَلَقَ اللَّهُ مِن شَيءٍ يَتَفَيَّؤُا۟ ظِلٰلُهُ عَنِ اليَمينِ وَالشَّمائِلِ سُجَّدًا لِلَّهِ وَهُم دٰخِرونَ

“Have they not observed things that Allah has created, (how) their shadows incline to the right and to the left, making prostration unto Allah, and they are lowly?”

{Surah an-Nahl 16:48}


Allaah informs us about His might, majesty and pride. All things submit themselves to Him and every created being – animate and inanimate, as well as the responsible – humans and jinns, and the angels – all humble themselves before Him.


The fact that our shadows and the shadows of all of creation prostrate to Allaah , shows His greatness and how important it is for us to also voluntarily dedicate ourselves to Him through sajdah and every other aspect of our lives.


May Allaah 
make us amongst those who are obedient to Him and those who continually prostrate to Him. Ameen.
