How can Salat be finished - 62:10??

Dear Ilyas and Ms Rashid,

I have searched everywhere, people are normally illogical. It is always I am right, you are wrong attitude. Nobody is willing to answer logically.

No doubt people like Allama G.A. Parvaiz and Dr. Shabbir Ahmed have done a great job in trying to interpret the Quran but they are not infallible either. At many places I have felt they have forgotten the oft repeated verse:

54:17 We have made the Qur’an easy to understand. Then, is there any who will learn?

Was the Quran revealed so there should be clerics to explain it?

During all this debate nobody has pointed out the Dr. Shabbir himself used the word 'prayer'

62:10 And when the prayer is ended, disperse freely in the land and seek of God’s bounty. And remember God often so that you may
prosper.

I ask what prayer? Surely it could not be Salaat in the traditional meaning of QXP. 'Salaat/Juma Congregation' would have made sense here.

Although I gave up the traditional namaaz about two years ago, I am still not sure if I have done the right thing or not. The only reason that keeps me from going to even Juma congregations is I don't want to listen to the nonsense of N2I Mullahs or pray behind them. Otherwise, to blame the current state of Muslims because of the five congregational prayers begs the question where has Allah stated that congregational prayer would improve a person's/society's character. I feel the non-implementation of Zakaat, lack of justice, capitalism and following of false deities (the Mullahs and the so called Sufi Saints) is the root cause of current state of Muslims the world over.

I agree Salaat has a broader meaning than just Namaaz, but also feel that some form of prayer has also been prescribed.

Peace!
