Some people have not, in their hearts, bowed to God.
Their outward prostration is a mere pretense. The Quran says about such persons that in the next world, they will be told to bow down before the Lord, but they will not be able to do so. (68:42)
Prostration is not just a ritual and time bound physical action; it is to surrender oneself to sublime reality. It is to make oneself follow truth in one’s whole life.
