Islam is very clear on this matter. It is a main tenet of Islam that is it absolutely haram or forbidden for a man to bow to another human being.
The image showed Buhari bow while the Saudi king had his old age slouch.
Part of the historic narrations of the events of the migration of Muslims to Abyssinia, was that the first Muslims were accused of keeping their backs straight and not bowing for the king.
Indeed Islam does not permit the use of the “king” terminology, which is reserved for Allah(s) alone, the only king in Islam.
Kingdoms or hereditary dynasties are also not a part of Islam. Such aberration started when a former Islamic king Muawiyyah transferred the title to his son, Yazid.
Prohibitions On Bowing
It was narrated that Anas ibn Maalik (may Allaah be pleased with him) said: “A man said, ‘O Messenger of Allaah, when one of us meets his friend, can he bow to him?’ The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said, ‘No.’ He said, ‘Can he hug him and kiss him?’ He said, ‘No.’ He said, ‘Can he shake hands with him?’ He said, ‘Yes, if he wishes.’” (Narrated by al-Tirmidhi, 2728; he said it is a hasan hadeeth. Also narrated by Ibn Maajah. 3702. The hadeeth was classed as hasan by al-Albaani in al-Silsilah al-Saheehah, 160).
The Saudi kings by allowing people keep bowing for them, have been involved in generations of promoting shirk and haram, assuming Allah’s unique role and making themselves gods.
It was later revealed that Nigeria’s president not only bowed for the Saudi leader as a god, but also submitted to his every request.
In pleasing the Saudi king,
Nigeria refused to consider quitting OPEC over its malicious and geopolitical Saudi agenda.
Nigeria, despite better advise, agreed to join toe Saudi-led discredited Islamic State coalition against terror.
As revealed during a recent interview Nigeria’s Buhari accorded Aljazeera.
Nigeria’s Buhari also made absurd statements denouncing Iran’s positions in Africa, in statements dictated by the Saudi regime.
