‘A-‘uu-zu  Billaahi minash-Shay-taanir- Rajiim.
(I seek refuge in God from Satan the outcast.)


(In the name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful.)

وَلِلَّهِ يَسْجُدُ مَن فِى ٱلسَّمَٰوَٰتِ وَٱلْأَرْضِ طَوْعًا وَكَرْهًا وَظِلَٰلُهُم بِٱلْغُدُوِّ وَٱلْءَاصَالِ 15

15.  And unto Allah falleth prostrate whosoever is in the heavens and the earth, willingly or unwillingly, as do their shadows in the morning and the evening hours. 15.  Wa  Lillaahi  yas-judu  man  fis-samaa-waati  wal-‘arzi  taw-‘anw-wa  kar-hanw-wa  zilaalu-hum-  bilgu-duwwi  wal-‘aasaal.

(As-Sajdah – Bow-down)




In the universe, there are various kinds of creatures and the entire are in obedience to the prescribed management of Allah Almighty. Nothing can go out of that law which has been fixed for it. Whether someone accept it or otherwise, is subject to His commandment.


Some intelligent people know Allah Almighty after beholding this astonishing management and admit wholeheartedly. They say: Why should we not have faith in Him and believe that He is One without having any partner, Who established this system, while we cannot move out from His certain management?


Therefore, they bow-down and put their forehead on the ground humbly before their Lord (Allah Almighty). Some are such people who consider it not necessary to believe in Him, but they also have been bowing unwillingly before His prescribed Law. Like this, their shadows lie on earth in the morning and evening hours but those cannot change their way, that is to say, those cannot go out of the Law of Allah Almighty, have been exposing without speaking and affirming it. Mankind is such creature which has intention and option. So in addition to this, he should bow before Him willingly.


This is a verse of As-Sajdah so every individual who recites or hears it, he/she should Bow-down before Allah Almighty.
