The main issue of the present study lies in the fact that God does not need man`s worship, but why did He command him to humiliate Himself? The answer is that humiliation before God is the very dignity and transcendence of man. This claim has been studied by philosophical explanation and descriptive-analytical method and has been proved by quoting verses and hadiths. This study has been founded on the philosophical teaching of  fully dependent existence of the caused in relation to its cause. While explaining this issue, it is explained that man is the act of God and of a fully dependent existence; And just as the existence of a relation is fully dependent on the existence of its corresponding independent cause, so the knowledge to the existence of the former is based on the knowledge of the latter. In this study, we come to the conclusion that man, by receiving the creational and legislative humiliations by God, becomes acquainted with the truth of his relationship, and consequently with the independent and needless nature of God. Since the realization of the present knowledge has no meaning without an existential unity of the knowing and the known, he finds a conscious existential connection with the independent existence of God and attains divine honor.
