Salat ul Wujud
Prayer of Existence

(Salat ul Wujud). Every particle in existence is in a state of continous prayer. It does not stop, even for the blink of an eye. The entire creation is in a state of servitude to Almighty Allah in every moment and in every breath. If anyone were to focus seriously, he would see all of existence, inward and outward, in a state of prayer. Allah says in the Holy Qur'an: "There is not a single thing but extols His limitless glory and praise: but you [O men] fail to grasp the manner of their glorifying Him! Truly, He is forbearing, much-forgiving!" (17:44) and "Whatever beings there are in the heavens and the earth do prostrate themselves to Allah (acknowledging subjection),- with good-will or in spite of themselves: so do their shadows in the morning and evenings" (13:15).
