A pigeon was observed prostrating in Mataf, the area around the Kaaba to perform tawaf, according to a video shared by Harmain Sharifain’s Twitter account on Tuesday.
The video of the entire scene is doing rounds on social media in which it’s clearly visible that the pigeon is trying to imitate the posture of sujood (prostration).
“Have you not seen that to Allah prostrate all those in the skies and all those on the earth, and the sun, the moon, the stars, the mountains, the trees, the animals and many from mankind?” (Surah Al-Hajj – 22:18) Without a doubt, every living being is in a state of submission to Allah SWT and worships Him in a manner appropriate to its situation.
The prostration is the best way to connect with Allah SWT and to make dua.
Moreover, the posture of sujood (prostration) demonstrates the submission to our creator, Allah almighty.
