A coffin is being carried aloft towards the grave. It seems like a journey, not just from one point to another, but from man’s beginning to his end.
When man is born into this world, he immediately has recourse to a mother’s compassion and a father’s protection. He grows up among friends and relatives. Then he reaches adulthood and forges ahead on his chosen path through life.

There are some people in the world who have not bowed to God in their hearts, and their physical prostration is devoid of spirit. The Quran tells us in Chapter 68, Verse 42 that when such people are asked on the day of judgement to prostrate themselves before God, they will not be able to.

The Quran tells us how, when man was first put on earth, Iblis (Satan) along with the Angels, was commanded to bow before Adam, the first man. He refused to do so, claiming that he was better than Adam. Why should he bow before an inferior creature? The Angels, on the other hand, obeyed God’s command immediately. They had no hesitation in bowing before Adam. (The Quran, 2: 34)
