salat - the either/or fallacy

peace/salaam,

One issue that frequently arises when discussing the meaning of "salat" is that some think if it doesn't mean X it must mean Y.

e.g. if it doesn't mean "establishing the divine laws" it must mean "ritual prayer".


Unfortunately, this is a logical fallacy known as an "either or" fallacy or a "false dilemma" fallacy or a "false dichotomy" fallacy.

Please look it up and ensure you dont fall into this trap.
