Offering Namaz in Quran (Proofs for *New Muslims)


This is the part of this analysis about as salat in the Quran.

    We have seen that it is really a great injustice to claim that God’s book is incomplete and not detailed when He, the Mighty says that IT IS complete, perfect and fully detailed.
It is our desires that do not allow us to see the significance of this great mercy of our Lord. But the TRUTH, simply, does not follow any desires, otherwise the heavens and the earth, and all the beings therein would have been in ruin (corrupted). Now, let us go together and see what God the Wise instructs us to do regarding this issue.
Ablution
[5:6]“ O ye who believe! When ye prepare for prayer, wash (fagh siloo) your faces and your hands to the elbows; Rub (wa amsahoo) your heads and your feet to the ankles. If ye are in a state of ceremonial impurity, bathe yourselves. But if ye are ill, or on a journey, or one of you cometh from the privy or ye have been in contact (lamastum) with women, and ye find no water, then take for yourselves clean sand or earth and rub therewith your faces and hands. God doth not wish to place you in a difficulty, but to make you clean, and to complete His favour to you, that ye may be grateful.
So, ablution is:
Washing face and hands to the elbows.
Rubbing head and feet to the ankles.
Tay yamum is:
Rubbing face and hands.
This is the way God sets it. The verb wash is followed with two objects, face and hands. While the verb rub is followed with two objects, head and feet. Notice that, what is washed in ablution is rubbed in tay yamum and what is rubbed in ablution is deleted in tay yamum! (just a notice)
Qibla
'' so from whencesoever thou startest forth, turn thy face in the direction of the sacred Mosque; and wheresoever ye are, turn your face thither: That there be no ground of dispute against you among the people. Except those of them that a bent on wickedness; so fear them not, but fear Me; and that I may complete my favours on you, and ye May (consent to) be guided; 2:150
The standing position.
'' Yet when the devotee of God stood up to invoke Him, they just make round him a dense crowd.”72:19.
I have quoted the above verse for the standing position because it clearly says so. This is only one example. But the standing position is understood, easy to conclude, and logical. From the standing position we move to ruku’ and sujuood.
In 4:102 we read: “When thou (O messenger) art with them, and standest to lead them in prayer (fa agamta lahumu salata), let one party of them stand up (Faltagum) with thee. Taking their arms with them: When they
have prostrated (iza sajadoo), let them take their position in the rear.”
As we can see. We make our sujood from the standing position. RUKU’ and SUJOOD
“When thou (O messenger) art with them, and standest to lead them in prayer (fa agamta lahumu salata), let one party of them stand up (in prayer) with thee. Taking their arms with them: When they have prostrated (iza sajadoo), let them take their position in the rear. And let the other party come up which hath not yet prayed (lam yusaloo), and let them pray with thee (fal yusaloo ma&k), taking all precautions, and bearing arms…” 4:102.
This verse mentions sujood but it does not mention any ruku’. Can we conclude from it that there is no ruku’ (bowing)?
If we can do so, then we can, on the same level, conclude that there is no reciting of the Quran because this verse mentions GIYAM but not reciting of the Quran.
The use of sujood is here to make the numbers of the units clear, but it has another significance. To make it clear that RUKU’ IS BETWEEN GIYAM AND SUJOOD!
As we have already mentioned it is quite clear that, to the sujood we move from the standing position! But God in this verse says: “ When they have prostrated (iza sajadoo) let them take their position in the rear.”
Do we get the point here. When they had prostrated they LEFT to the rear. So, ruku’ is done just between giyam (standing position) and sujood (prostration) But ruku’ (bowing) is mentioned in many other verses, always linked with sujood when they refer to prayer.
RUKU’
'' …and We covenanted with Abraham and Isma’il, that they should sanctify My house for those who compass it round, or use it as a retreat, or bow, or prostrate” 2:125.
''Behold! We pointed the site, to Abraham, of the (Sacred) House, (saying): “ Associate not anything (in worship) with Me; And sanctify My House for those who compass it round, or stand up, bow, and prostrate.” 22:26.
''O ye who believe! Bow down, prostrate yourselves, and adore your Lord; And do good; That ye may prosper.” 22:77.
'' Muhammed, the messenger of God and those who are with him are strong against unbelievers, (but) compassionate amongst each other. Thou wilt see them bow and prostrate, seeking Grace from God and (His) Good Pleasure…” 48:29.
THE RECITING OF THE QURAN
''Read ye, therefore, as much of the Quran as may be easy (for you) and establish regular prayer…”73:20.
In 17:78 (one of the timing verses) God calls the dawn prayer ‘ guranul fajr’ as a synonym to emphasize the meaning of the reciting of the Quran in the prayers.
So, as it is clear there is no specific chapters or verses. The choice is everybody’s. WHAT IS EASY FOR YOU.
THE VOICE IN THE PRAYER
'' …Neither speak thy prayer aloud, nor speak it in a low tone, but seek A MIDDLE COURSE BETWEEN.'' 17:110.
DU’A, (invoke, call) ZIKR, (remembrance) AND TASBIH (glorify). These are included in every prayer. They are the reasons for our prayers and we do them throughout every prayer. To check this, go through this article again.
CALL TO PRAYER.
''When you proclaim your call to prayer, they take it (but) as mockery and pastime; That is because they are a people without understanding.''5:58.
''O ye who believe! When the call is proclaimed to prayer on Friday (the day of assembly), Hasten earnestly to the remembrance of God, and leave off business. That is best for you. If ye but knew!'' 62:9
It is just a simple call/Chant.
REMEMBER!
“ Say: ‘Truly, my prayer and my service of sacrifice, my life and my death are (all) for God, the Cherisher of the worlds.” 6:162.
“ Successful indeed are the believers. Those who humble themselves in their prayers.” 23:1,2.
“ Guard strictly your prayers, they are to be moderate or justly balanced and stand before God in devout (frame of mind)” 2:238.
“ So woe to those who pray but are heedless in their prayer.” 107:4,5.
