Is Namaaz Salaat?

Decades ago I used to wonder as to why God would waste time in tautology? That is, repeat different words in a sentence which actually mean the same thing.

For example 2-43- Y.Ali- And be steadfast in PRAYERS: Practice regular charity; And BOW DOWN –warkau’--your heads With those who bow down (in worship).

If Salaat was ‘worship’, then it is understood by all that it has one of the rituals in it of BOWING one’s head. Then why is it necessary to ‘repeat the ordinance’ of warkau’—bowing of the head after the use of the word ‘worship’?

It is simple to deduce with a little thought that salaat and zakat are ‘saleh’ righteous practical actions which result in, for humankind’s ‘falah’—goodness and progress? Thus the bowing down of head must be a call to submit –bow down--to the ordinance of salaat and zakat!
