The entire universe is a place for worshiping Allah. Everything therein glorifies the Almighty Lord, and this is the greatest form of  worship.

The angels, inhabitants of the heavens:

{They said: “Will You place upon it one who causes corruption therein and sheds blood, while we exalt You with praise and declare Your perfection?” He said: “Indeed, I know what you do not know.”}

[Surat al-Baqarah: 30]

There is nothing in the universe that does not glorify Allah Almighty, except the disbelievers among the jinn and humans.

Allah Almighty says:

{The seven heavens and the earth and whatever is in them glorify Him. And there is not a thing except that it glorifies [Allah] by His praise, but you do not understand their [way of] glorifying. Indeed, He is All-Forbearing, All-Forgiving.}

[Surat al-Isrā’: 44]

Allah Almighty is the One worthy of being glorified, given His perfect essence and attributes.

Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him) reported: “I heard the Messenger of Allah (may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him) say:‘An ant had bitten a prophet; thereupon, he ordered that the colony of ants be burnt. Then Allah revealed to him: 

“You have burnt a community from amongst the communities that glorify Me because of an ant’s bite!’”

[Narrated by Al - Bukhāri- this is his wording- and Muslim]

Mountains and birds also glorify Allah Almighty:

{...And We subjected the mountains to glorify [Us], along with David and [also] the birds. And We were doing [that].}

[Surat al-Anbiyā’: 79]

So, it is evenmore appropriate for us to glorify the Almighty Lord.One of the righteous predecessors said: “Would anyone of you not be ashamed that the animal he rides and the garment he wears mentions Allah more often than he does!”
