That all of creation is devoutly obedient (qānit) indicates an existential
and spiritual obedience that carries with it a sense of constancy and in the human
order also serenity (cf. 2:116, 238; 3:17, 43; 4:34; 16:120; 33:31, 35; 39:9;
66:12). In this sense, everything is also said to prostrate unto God, as in 16:49:
And unto God prostrates whatever crawling creatures or angels are in the
heavens or on the earth, and they do not wax arrogant (cf. 13:15; 22:18; 55:6),
and in the repeated assertion that whatsoever is in the heavens and whatsoever is
on the earth glorify God (59:1; 61:1; 62:1; 64:1; also see 17:44; 24:41; 57:1;
59:24).
