Once Sheikh Ahmad Deedat, the great Muslim scholar, visited Jeddah and narrated one of his experiences of life. He said once he happened to take a group of Christians & Jews to visit a mosque in Durbun, South Africa. When they entered the mosque Deedat not only took off his shoes but requested the group also to follow him. All of them took of their shoes also. Then Deedat asked the group if they knew the reason behind taking off their shoes. They replied, "No." Deedat explained, when Moses was on Mount Sinai, God spoke to him: And He (God Almighty) said, Draw not nigh hither: put off thy shoes from off thy feet, for the place whereon thou standest is holy ground. Holy Bible (Exodus 3:5) While the group sat on the bench and watched, Deedat excused himself to perform the ablution. After the ablution, he again went to the group and explained. This is not only highly hygienic as it is performed 5 times a day, it also has a historical reference. He again quoted: And Moses and Aaron and his sons washed their hands and their feet thereat: When they went into the tent of the congregation, and when they came unto the altar, they washed as the Lord commanded Moses. Holy Bible (Exodus 40:31-32) After the obligatory prayers Deedat again went to the group who were now busy observing other Muslims perform their non-obligatory salaat. He explained the various postures of the salaat (prayer), the most intriguing being the sujood (prostration). Deedat said, pointing at the prostrations, this is how all the prophets prayed. He further authenticated his statement and quoted: And Abraham fell on his face: and God talked with him... Holy Bible (Genesis 17:3) And they (Moses and Aaron) fell upon their faces: and the glory of the Lord appeared unto them. Holy Bible (Numbers 20:6) And Joshua fell on his face to the earth and did worship... Holy Bible (Joshua 5:14) And he (Jesus) went a little further, and fell on his face, and did worship... Holy Bible (Matthew 26:39)Deedat told the group that they know the ways of worship of Christians and Jews very well and they have now observed the Muslim way of worship also. Dedaat politely asked the group whose ways of worship are more Christian? The group of Christians & the Jews were unanimous in saying, "Certainly the Muslim way of worship is more Christian than others."
