KNEELING
The attitude of kneeling amongst Muslims consists of placing the two knees on the ground and sitting on the feet behind. Kneeling as practiced by Christians in the present day, does not exist amongst Muslims as an attitude of worship.
The word jasi, which occurs in the Qur’an Surah xlv. 27: “And thou shalt see each nation kneeling (jasiyatan), each nation summoned to the book,” expresses an attitude of fear and not of worship.
