Re: To bow or not to bow

a large number of Islamic scholars wouldn't consider bowing in front of a person during a specific situation similar to prostration to Allah.
That's what I meant.
So that's what the bowing in islam is: 'prostration'; it makes sense now - you probably get a death sentence for prostrating to someone other than muhammad or whatever, so the dude's reluctance probably makes sense.
