Begin on your hands and knees; shoulders should be directly over your wrists and hips directly over your knees. Inhale and slowly arch your back into cat pose (marjaryasana), lifting the chest up and away from the belly and extending your tailbone toward the ceiling. On the exhale round the back into cow pose (bitilasana), gently contracting the belly, then bring the chest down to rest on the thighs in child’s pose (balasana). Repeat six times, increasing your range of motion.
While I’m not saying that the move is exactly like being in Sujood, it just reminded me that every move we do in Salat can be considered a stretch that increases our range of movement and flexibility.
That’s the beauty of Islam, every aspect of our worship is good for us. Whether it’s due to spiritual benefits, emotional currency, or even our physical health. Five times a day we have the opportunity to not only be thankful to our creator, but to seek forgiveness and mercy as well as get healthy. Which is why it is very important that when we pray, we pray correctly and do our prayer as precisely as possible.
