Bishops being ordained at Saint Peter’s Basilica at the Vatican. The Quran’s verse is pertinent:

“They have taken as lords beside Allah their rabbis and their monks and the Messiah son of Mary, when they were bidden to worship only One Allah. There is no Allah save Him. Be He Glorified from all that they ascribe as partner (unto Him)!” [Tawbah, 31]

Once while Allah’s Messenger (peace be upon him) was reciting this Verse, Adi bin Hatim said, “O Allah’s Messenger! They do not worship them (i.e. the rabbis and monks).” Allah’s Messenger (peace be upon him) said: “They certainly do. [They (the rabbis and monks) made lawful things unlawful and unlawful things as lawful, and they (i.e. Jews and Christians) followed them; and by doing so, they really worshipped them].”

Narrated by Ahmed, at-Tirdmidhi and ibn Jarir.

Well said

Well said, but do we need to compare this kind of prostration with prostration to the most blood-thirsty imposter in history?
