(Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam)

The Ulama have written that on numerous occasions in the
Qur’an, Allah Ta’ala has revealed a variety of commands and
injunctions, very many are the locations where He has praised various
Prophets, mentioning their specific attributes and lauding them with
great honor and position. As is the case with Hazrat Adam (Alaihis
Salaam) on the occasion of whose creation, Allah Ta’ala commanded
the Angels to prostrate before him. But nowhere has it been said, in
order to accord him honor and recognition, that, “I also perform this
action, therefore I command you to do the same.” This honor, this
position has been the sole boon accorded to the leader of all the
Prophets, Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam). The other point
worthy of note is the fact that Allah Ta’ala firstly informs us that this

action is firstly attributed to Him after which we are informed that
even the Angels do so, then only does He instruct the Mu’mineen to
follow suit. What therefore, can be warranting greater honor for
Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) than the fact that Allah Ta’ala
too participates in the said action?
This re-emphasizes the fact that the word Salaah used has different
meanings in different contexts.
