How can Salat be finished - 62:10??

Establishing Salaat (aqimus salaat) is an activity that invites momineen to come together and participate in affairs of the community and help solve problems and create opportunities.

There is no specific form to Salaat. Miss-translation of words like ruku and sajda has created a physical form of Salaat we call namaz - which is not in the Quran.

Keep in mind that we need to intellectually and emotionally accept the messages of the Quran and our actions will automatically support our beliefs. By focusing on just the physical form, we get in the habit of doing things that do not produce the desired results. With all the namaz being performed in the muslim world, identify one instance of 'heaven on earth' society being formed because of it. There isn't any because we create by thinking and internalizing the messages of the Quran and then our actions produce the desired results.

Everything created by man goes through two creations. The first creation is in our imagination. Think about iPads, cars, buildings, airplanes and other products - they all started by someone imagining them and creating a vision in their mind. The second creation is when the vision takes the physical form that we can touch and experience.

By using the Quran as a guide, we need to create a vision for this 'heaven on earth' society. Once we are emotionally attached to this vision, we will automatically take actions to bring this vision into physical reality. This the law of Allah - every thought that is sufficiently nurtured must take a physical form.
