Why is it that people find peace in the beauty of their surroundings? why is it that people find rejuvenation in the tranquil beauty of their surroundings? For example, when depressed and miserable go out on a relaxing vacation...when they go there they internally change by the beauty of their surroundings? they let their mind slipp and let their hearts change by the suprise of beauty...by beautyy i mean being surrounded by fig and olive trees, plum blossoms and Tamarisk daphnes, and the scents of fortune's yellow rose and blooming acacia and the sea.
When you go somewhere to relax, you choose somewhere that is pleasing to your senses, somewhere that is conducive to relaxation. When you choose your vacation destination, you generally choose a place that you've "dreamed of". At the very least, it's somewhere you don't usually get to spend much time but you would like to. I take in my environment and savor every detail I can when I'm on vacation.
Was it not a sunnah on the prophet to prostrate on earth? What better earth than the earth inwhich Imam Hussain fought and saved Islam?
:) This was to explain to my other brothers why we prostrate on moar:)
Peace be on you:)
actually brother 99, I did read your answer to that question which is what sparked my curiosity
why does it have to be from a special place though? isn't that bid'ah because all land is the same?
I understand that the process of praying on natural soil was a sunnah
but surely not praying on a specific terrain's soil?
that must be bidah then?
and yes all that is manufactured as well
but the sunnah is to pray on natural ground
not manufactured and imported, correct?
