The Almighty said: Glorify the name of your Lord, the Most High. The Messenger of God, may God bless him and grant him peace, said And peace and make it in your prostration
God s command was combined with them by saying, Glory be to Him, so He commanded and commanded the Messenger of God, may God bless him and grant him peace, to us in its place of prayer, saying, Remove the greatness of your Lord from submission. A name with a lot of role and appearance in the Qur an more than the rest of the names, for the mothers of the names in the Qur an are three: God, the Most Gracious, and the Lord. In addition to the right of every swimming pool, because the knowledge of it from every scholar is different, and a person believes in him contrary to what others believe in. He will have this attribute and he is a disbeliever for it. If he glorifies him at all, according to the belief of every belief, this person would glorify someone who does not believe that he is exalted, so this is why every glorified person added him to what his belief requires.
[ The fortune of the knower is that he glorifies his Lord with the tongue of every one who is glorified .]
It is the fortune of the knower that he glorifies Him with the tongue of every one who praises Him and looks at the greatness of God and its transcendence from the establishment of submission in it and its elevation from prostration. The benefit of the possible is a isthmus between the necessary existence for itself and the possible non-existence for itself, so the possible is non-existent for itself, for the non-existence is not benefited, for there is no benefit from it, and the necessary existence is its existence for itself. It is the essence of the truth, nor is it other than the truth. It has two ratios that the knower knows, so it comes to the knower in the state of bowing, the condition of the isthmus separating the two things, and it is the reasonable meaning by which the Lord is distinguished from the slave, and it is also the reasonable meaning by which the servant is characterized by the descriptions of the Lord, and the Lord is characterized by the descriptions of the praised, not the attributes, for it is a description not an attribute. Rather, we said that it is a description, not an attribute, because the attribute can make sense from it an additional matter and an eye that is superfluous to the attribute of the described.
( Chapter and pray in bowing )
[ The sayings of the fuqaha regarding supplication while bowing ]
They differed about supplication in kneeling after their agreement on the permissibility of praising God in it and its obligation in the doctrine of those who see it as a condition for the validity of prayer. And some of them allowed it
[ Guiding the sayings of the fuqaha on supplication in prayer ]
So I say that since prayer means supplication, it is correct that supplication is one of its parts, and it is a matter of naming the whole by the name of the part. And he did not prohibit it, because the attribute of al-Qayyumiyyah may characterize the universe, God Almighty said, Men are the guardians of women. God Almighty has legislated supplications in the Qur an, so turning away from them to words from people s words is to dissent from the soul that it has been inculcated with so that it does not agree with its Lord, which is the correct manners. From what is legislated to be said in prayer, and whoever makes supplication during prayer of any kind prevails over his heart, that there is no one but God, and no one speaks but God, either by an act that he does, as it was reported that God said on the tongue of His servant, God hears those who praise Him, meaning in prayer or another matter.
( Chapter and pray in the Tashahhud in prayer )
[ The sayings of the jurists regarding the tashahhud ]
The scholars differed regarding the obligation of the tashahhud in prayer and what is chosen from it
[ The tashahhud is the recall .]
So I say, since the tashahhud against the truth means to be summoned, then it is done by the witnesses, which is the presence, and the person is enjoined to be present in his prayer, so the tashahhud is necessary, which is the first and the most important aspect.
