Is Namaaz Salaat?

Salaam Hicham,

I have been following this forum and the Our Beacon Forum as well for some time and am aware of the main differences that you both have with 'mainstream' practices.

I note that in your response to Ms Rashid you say:

"But truth be told, it changes nothing.
You still won't find it anywhere in the Qu'ran how salaat is physically performed."

This changes everything, as it implies that a physical prayer is to be performed daily to God as a regular part of a Mumin's life.By saying that one cannot find how the prayer is to be performed physically from within the Quran, does not diminish the fact that it is a duty.

This would be akin to your definition of salaat which I understand to be a kind of 'meeting'.The same could be said of that opinion as nowhere are you told in the Quran what this 'meeting' must consist of.

In the case of a physical regular prayer..the basic elements have been described, which involve standing, bowing and prostrating thus providing a framework with which to work with.

Unfortunately the same cannot be said of the 'meetings' that you say Mumin's should attend.
