And those who spend the night in worship of their Lord, prostrate and standing.” (25:64)
Allah the Great prohibited prostrating to His creation:
“And from among His Signs are the night and the day, and the sun and the moon. prostrate yourselves not to the sun nor to the moon, but prostrate yourselves to Allah Who created them, if you (really) worship Him.” (41:37)

Hindus were massacred and their skulls were stung in the trees.
