|Submissiveness is the standing of the heart in the hands of Allah Almighty with submission, humility, and convergence to Him, and the delicacy of the heart, stillness, brokenness, and burning. Submissiveness is the extinguishing of the flames of lust, the stillness of the smoke in the breasts, the shining of the light of glorification in the heart, and the evocation of Allah's greatness, prestige, and majesty. Submissiveness is a common denominator between morals, belief, and action. They feed it with fear of Allah, so it fulfills its purpose in the soul and the heart together. Submissiveness is a legitimate meaning and a Sunni behavior, in which all submission is to Allah, Lord of the worlds. Al-Junayd said that submissiveness is the submission of hearts to the All-Knower of the Unseen. The heart is the ruler of the body, so if the heart is humbled, then the hearing, sight, face and all the organs, and what arose from them, even speech, are humbled. Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyyah - may Allah have mercy on him - believes in Majmoo’ al-Fatawa: 7/28 that humility includes two meanings: the first is humility, groveling while the second includes: stillness and tranquility. He says: “This necessitates softness of the heart, and contradicts harshness, for the heart’s submissiveness includes its servitude to Allah, and its tranquility as well, and for this reason submissiveness in prayer includes this, and this: humility and stillness.” Submissiveness is a useful knowledge that touches the heart, so it necessitates for it tranquility and fear, and concealment, humility, and refraction to Allah, and all of these are a filter from the overflow of submissiveness. On the authority of Zaid bin Arqam - may Allah be pleased with him - that the Prophet - may Allah’s prayers and peace be upon him - used to say: “O Allah, I seek refuge in You from knowledge that does not benefit, and from a heart that does not submit, and from a soul that is not satisfied, and from a supplication that is not answered.” (Narrated by Muslim).
