In some parts of the Muslim World, students in madaaris (schools) often learn to sway back and forth while reciting the Book of Allāh. This is taught to them by their teachers and classmates as a way to “help their memorization.” In some cases, people have transferred this action to other parts of their worship, like ṣalāh. Where did this action originate from? Did the Prophet ṣallallāhu ʿalayhi was salām or his companions sway and move like this in their worship? Is it from the Religion of Allāh? Mūsá Richardson discusses this issue.
