‘The Secret of Salaat’

Ayatullah Behjat (r.a.) has said:

“Namaz (Salaat) symbolizes the Ka’ba.
The Takbirarut’l Ihram stands for casting aside everything other than Allah swt and entering His haram (sanctuary).

The Qiyam represents a conversation between two friends.

The Ruku’ symbolizes the bowing of a slave in front of his master and

the Sajdah is the ultimate display of lowliness, humility and helplessness in front of the Master.

And when the slave returns from such a Namaz, the souvenir he brings back is the greeting of peace (salaam) from his Lord…”
