Do not prostrate to the sun or the moon

Question 157: Allah swt said, {And of His signs are the night and day and the sun and moon. Do not prostrate to the sun or to the moon, but prostrate to Allah, who created them, if it is Him that you worship.} ¹
What are the sun and the moon? And what is the prostration to them that is forbidden? And has anyone prostrated to them and because of that it became forbidden?

Answer: In the Name of Allah, the Abundantly Merciful, the Intensely Merciful,
Praise be to Allah, Lord of the worlds
The apparent of the verse is clear and does not need clarification. And there are those who believe or believed that absolute divinity is attributed to the sun and the moon, meaning to the proof of Allah and his successor in every time period, particularly Muhammad pbuhap and Ali pbuh. And I have previously clarified the story of Abraham mentioned in the Quran. ² So what is forbidden is prostrating to them as if they have absolute divinity, and what is required is to consider them a direction toward Allah swt, meaning that through them, Allah is known. ³

As for those who embodied [the absolute divinity], the misguidance of previous nations led them to believe that the sun and the moon have divinity in this physical world, and this deviation originates from that matter in the Kingdom of Heaven, meaning that the sun is the proof of Allah and the moon is his successor, or in particular, Muhammad pbuhap and Ali pbuh.

² In the beginning of the The Allegories Volume 1, so refer to it.
³ Imam Abu Abdullah pbuh said, “ We are the guardians over the matter of Allah, the keepers of the knowledge of Allah, the keepers of the inspiration of Allah and the people of the religion of Allah. The book of Allah descended upon us, and by us, Allah is worshipped. And if it weren’t for us, Allah would not be known. And we are the inheritors of the prophet of Allah and his progeny.” Basair al-Darajat by al-Saffar, page 81.
