This is regard to martial arts and martial arts.

00:00:05--> 00:00:14

The players greet each other and they greet their Sensei, or their master, by bowing to their master.

00:00:16--> 00:00:25

Is this allowed? Is this permissible for a Muslim to bow to their sensei or their master or their

00:00:26--> 00:00:29

follow friends or players

00:00:35--> 00:00:48

in regard to bowing down or bending your back, as a form of greeting to your master in the martial art or your partner,

00:00:49--> 00:01:23

we have to establish rule first, that bowing, like the way it's done in Salah, or so Jude is forbidden in Islam to be given to any other than our last panel. And even some of the aroma will consider this an act of worship. But that's the bowing that is meant as a form of submission as a meant of act of worship, to submit yourself and to honor the person that you bound for exactly like a suit. And this is something that Mr. himolla almost agree upon.

00:02:26--> 00:02:44

allowed in Islam. And that's why if you're on a martial art, you're not allowed to bow completely to the master or to your partner, but you're allowed to bend your your your head or your shoulder as a form of greeting and respect to your

00:02:45--> 00:03:08

teachers or your your master in this case. This is what I believe in regard to this issue. And the person also tried to educate and let the people know what are why we don't do that. And we do have respect for teachers with ultimate respect and the ultimate submission is going only to Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:03:10--> 00:03:17

And there is a federal from the committee for twins Arabia, legit. If that said that it is if it is by
