Are you privy to the meaning of the dark spot situated on the foreheads of some Muslims you know?
I am sure you are not.
Don’t be worried because in this article I will be schooling you on what it means.
The black spot on the foreheads of Muslims is referred to as Zebibah.
In English language, it id called the prayer bump. It appears on some Muslim’s forehead because of their frequent contact with the floor; placing the forehead on the mat while observing the five compulsory daily prayers.
It is of the societal belief that it is a mark of devout Muslims.
Every Muslim is required to say prayers five times a day which involves placing your forehead on a mat or hard surface and if that is done consecutively for long a long period of time, then something called callus would begin to form on the forehead which means Zebibah(prayer bump).
A mumber of Muslims are of the believe that this black spot on the day of judgment would illuminate and become bright like light.
Be informed that a Prayer bump is not to show off, if it later becomes a show-off, then you must take a precautionary act to stop it from appearing on your forehead as your prayers maybe deemed void with the intention for trying to get the prayer bump for show off.
Therefore, showing off should not be the motive for deliberately creating a prayer bump.
The above is the meaning of the dark spot.
