Can a Muslim bow to another person? For example, in a martial arts class, you bow to the master but you're not worshiping him. Same applies to a king or queen. You bow when you greet them but again, you're not worshiping them. Cana Muslim do that? Please post a Quran verse or Hadith along with the answer please.

bowing to another human being isn't an Islamic greeting. We're slaves ONLY to Allah swt.

No. We bow only to Allah.

O you who have believed, bow and prostrate and worship your Lord and do good - that you may succeed. (Qur'an, 22:77)

Al-Tirmidhi (Hadeeth number 2728) narrated that Anas ibn Maalik (may Allaah be pleased with him) said: A man said: O Messenger of Allaah, when one of us meets his brother or friend, should he bow to him? He said: “No.”...

I say it's not allowed. I have not read it but I have been told it's not. Only God deserves to be bowed to.


I know in some cultures and some activities, such as martial arts, it's seen as a form of respect.

So how should a Muslim greet a person in a respectful way? Like if a Muslim takes martialarts, how will he greet his master?

Smile, wave, handshake? Say hello?
