  1. بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَٰنِ الرَّحِيمِ A common perception is that the procedure of establishment of Salat (prayer) is not in Al-Quran. However, with some deeper study, we will be able to find the procedure of establishing Salat in Al-Quran as detailed below. The Book tells us that Allah made Ibrahim the Imam for all mankind (2:124). Allah also established Place of Ibrahim (Muqam-e Ibrahim) in Masjid ul Haram. Ibrahim was ordered to keep the House of the Lord purified for the people who do prayers and Tawaf (22:26). Ibrahim established from his progeny in the valley of Makkah for the establishment of Salat (14:37). Allah orders to take your Musalla/format of Salat from the Place of Ibrahim in the Masjid ul Haram (2:125). This format or Musalla therefore should be a complete system of salat which is and will always be established in the Masjid ul Haram by divine intervention. All People are ordered to take up this system. Then the Book tells us that there will be people who will be opposing this system (by providing an alternate format of prayers) these people will imply that the Walis/protectors of Forbidden Masjid (Masjid ul Haram) are not the rightly guided ones (8:34). But Allah confirms that the Salat of those people opposing the Forbidden Masjid is like whistling and clapping of hands (8:35) . Allah’s order is to become a part of the Masjid Ul Haram i.e get connected to the Masjid ul Haram and follow the established system of Salat in that Masjid, wherever you are or from wherever you come out (i.e from an alternative system of salat) (2:150). The same Ayat indicates that people may argue with you against your Salat (urging you to adop their procedure) however, your argument should be that your procedure of Salat is based on the Ayas of Book of Allah (2:150). 2:124 وَإِذِ ابْتَلَىٰ إِبْرَاهِيمَ رَبُّهُ بِكَلِمَاتٍ فَأَتَمَّهُنَّ ۖ قَالَ إِنِّي جَاعِلُكَ لِلنَّاسِ إِمَامًا ۖ قَالَ وَمِن ذُرِّيَّتِي ۖ قَالَ لَا يَنَالُ عَهْدِي الظَّالِمِينَ And when his Lord put Ibraheem to trial with words, thus he completed them. He said. “Surely I have made you the IMAM / LEADER for mankind”, he said “and from my offspring?” He said “My covenant shall not reach the oppressors.” 22:26 وَإِذْ بَوَّأْنَا لِإِبْرَاهِيمَ مَكَانَ الْبَيْتِ أَن لَّا تُشْرِكْ بِي شَيْئًا وَطَهِّرْ بَيْتِيَ لِلطَّائِفِينَ وَالْقَائِمِينَ وَالرُّكَّعِ السُّجُودِ And when We pointed out the place of the house to Ibraheem “associate not anything with Me; and purify My house for those who go around, and who stand and bow, prostrate.” 14:37 رَّبَّنَا إِنِّي أَسْكَنتُ مِن ذُرِّيَّتِي بِوَادٍ غَيْرِ ذِي زَرْعٍ عِندَ بَيْتِكَ الْمُحَرَّمِ رَبَّنَا لِيُقِيمُوا الصَّلَاةَ فَاجْعَلْ أَفْئِدَةً مِّنَ النَّاسِ تَهْوِي إِلَيْهِمْ وَارْزُقْهُم مِّنَ الثَّمَرَاتِ لَعَلَّهُمْ يَشْكُرُونَ “O’ our Lord surely I have settled from my offspring within the valley without cultivation near your Sacred House, O’ Our Lord, so that they establish SALAH / PRAYER so make the hearts of people loving towards them and provide them with fruits so that they will be thankful.” 2:125 وَإِذْ جَعَلْنَا الْبَيْتَ مَثَابَةً لِّلنَّاسِ وَأَمْنًا وَاتَّخِذُوا مِن مَّقَامِ إِبْرَاهِيمَ مُصَلًّى ۖ وَعَهِدْنَا إِلَىٰ إِبْرَاهِيمَ وَإِسْمَاعِيلَ أَن طَهِّرَا بَيْتِيَ لِلطَّائِفِينَ وَالْعَاكِفِينَ وَالرُّكَّعِ السُّجُودِ And when We made the house a place of reward and safety for people, and you take from the standing position of Ibraheem, the salah / prayer performed. And We covenanted with Ibraheem and Ismaeel that both of you purify My house for those who go around and those who intent upon (do Aetikaf) and those who bow, prostate. An admonition to people who prevent you from following the system of salah establihed at the sacred Masjid. Allah confirms that the Walis/protectors of the Masjid are the ones who guard (are Muttaqin) 8:34 وَمَا لَهُمْ أَلَّا يُعَذِّبَهُمُ اللَّهُ وَهُمْ يَصُدُّونَ عَنِ الْمَسْجِدِ الْحَرَامِ وَمَا كَانُوا أَوْلِيَاءَهُ ۚ إِنْ أَوْلِيَاؤُهُ إِلَّا الْمُتَّقُونَ وَلَٰكِنَّ أَكْثَرَهُمْ لَا يَعْلَمُونَ But what plea they have, that Allah should not punish them when they are in opposition about the Sacred Masjid and they are not its protectors (Walis). No one can be its protectors except those who guard, but most of them do not know. 8:35 وَمَا كَانَ صَلَاتُهُمْ عِندَ الْبَيْتِ إِلَّا مُكَاءً وَتَصْدِيَةً ۚ فَذُوقُوا الْعَذَابَ بِمَا كُنتُمْ تَكْفُرُونَ Their SALAH / PRAYER near the house is nothing but whistling and clapping of hands, “Taste you the penalty because you rejected”. 2:115 وَلِلَّهِ الْمَشْرِقُ وَالْمَغْرِبُ ۚ فَأَيْنَمَا تُوَلُّوا فَثَمَّ وَجْهُ اللَّهِ ۚ إِنَّ اللَّهَ وَاسِعٌ عَلِيمٌ To Allah belong the East and the West. Where ever you turn, there is the presence of Allah. For Allah is all-Pervading, all-Knowing. To face the Sacred Masjid is to follow the system of Salat/prayers therein, it is not just the direction of your faces which is important!!! 2:150 وَمِنْ حَيْثُ خَرَجْتَ فَوَلِّ وَجْهَكَ شَطْرَ الْمَسْجِدِ الْحَرَامِ ۚ وَحَيْثُ مَا كُنتُمْ فَوَلُّوا وُجُوهَكُمْ شَطْرَهُ لِئَلَّا يَكُونَ لِلنَّاسِ عَلَيْكُمْ حُجَّةٌ إِلَّا الَّذِينَ ظَلَمُوا مِنْهُمْ فَلَا تَخْشَوْهُمْ وَاخْشَوْنِي وَلِأُتِمَّ نِعْمَتِي عَلَيْكُمْ وَلَعَلَّكُمْ تَهْتَدُونَ And from wherever you come out, so revert yourself to the intersection / portion of the Sacred Masjid and wherever you are, revert yourselves to its intersection/portion (of Sacred Masjid); that there would be no ground of argumentation over you from the people except those of them who are bent on wickedness, so fear them, not but fear Me and that I may complete My favours on you that you may be guided. People will argue with you that there is no procedure of Salat in Al-Quran, then you tell them the above Ayas under guidance of which you take your Salat procedure from Al-Quran, so that there remains no Hujjat/argumentation from people. Notes: Salat is a physical act with start and end: فَإِذَا قُضِيَتِ الصَّلَاةُ فَانتَشِرُوا فِي الْأَرْضِ وَابْتَغُوا مِن فَضْلِ اللَّهِ وَاذْكُرُوا اللَّهَ كَثِيرًا لَّعَلَّكُمْ تُفْلِحُونَ And when the Prayer is finished, then may ye disperse through the land, and seek of the Bounty of Allah. and celebrate the Praises of Allah often (and without stint). that ye may prosper. 2. Salat is not the worship of the cubicle building of Kaaba, but it is the serving of the Lord of the House. 106; فَلْيَعْبُدُوا رَبَّ هَٰذَا الْبَيْتِ Let them serve the Lord of this House, 3. The valley of Makkah is associated with the establishment of Salat 14:37 رَّبَّنَا إِنِّي أَسْكَنتُ مِن ذُرِّيَّتِي بِوَادٍ غَيْرِ ذِي زَرْعٍ عِندَ بَيْتِكَ الْمُحَرَّمِ رَبَّنَا لِيُقِيمُوا الصَّلَاةَ فَاجْعَلْ أَفْئِدَةً مِّنَ النَّاسِ تَهْوِي إِلَيْهِمْ وَارْزُقْهُم مِّنَ الثَّمَرَاتِ لَعَلَّهُمْ يَشْكُرُونَ “O’ our Lord surely I have settled from my offspring within the valley without cultivation near your Sacred House, O’ Our Lord, so that they establish SALAH / PRAYER so make the hearts of people loving towards them and provide them with fruits so that they will be thankful.” https://topicsfromquran.wordpress.com/2017/03/21/salat-procedure/
  2. sects in Islam

    بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَٰنِ الرَّحِيمِ Some Quranic Arabic words and their meanings to ponder are given below: Din دین : Judgement Millat مِلَّةَ : Religion Islam إِسْلَامُ : Peace and Security Shia شِيَعًا : Group Ahle-Kitab : Those people who have the Al-Kitab. (Not those who were supposed to have different version of the Book earlier (6:156)) When Allah orders that the Judgment (Din) in the nearness of Allah is Al-Islam, it should mean that when confronted with any situation in life, one should always take that decision which leads to peace and security 3: 19 إِنَّ الدِّينَ عِندَ اللَّهِ الْإِسْلَامُ ۗ وَمَا اخْتَلَفَ الَّذِينَ أُوتُوا الْكِتَابَ إِلَّا مِن بَعْدِ مَا جَاءَهُمُ الْعِلْمُ بَغْيًا بَيْنَهُمْ ۗ وَمَن يَكْفُرْ بِآيَاتِ اللَّهِ فَإِنَّ اللَّهَ سَرِيعُ الْحِسَابِ “The Din/judgment before Allah is Islam (To obtain Peace) nor did the Ahlal-Kitab/People of the Book differed except to wrong each other, after knowledge had come to them, And if any cover/rejects the AYATS/SIGNS of Allah, Allah is swift in taking account.” However after the knowledge came to people they started differing among themselves just to wrong each other and formed into various groups and sects. Allah’s orders were to make their judgment in all situations, of peace and security and follow the religion of Ibrahim. They were ordered to hold fast to one Book however they put that Book on their backs and started making other books which Allah has not provided, as source of their religious knowledge and guidance. These other books they started to write with their own hands and claimed that these are from inspiration of Allah. Every group which was formed in this way takes great pride and happiness in what they have gathered. We see that there is one common Kalima (Quran) in all people who Believe in Al-Kitab however they differ in practice and beliefs which are detailed in the sectarian books. Allah does not allow to form or join any group for the believers. They cannot associate with any sect. 6:159 إِنَّ الَّذِينَ فَرَّقُوا دِينَهُمْ وَكَانُوا شِيَعًا لَّسْتَ مِنْهُمْ فِي شَيْءٍ ۚ إِنَّمَا أَمْرُهُمْ إِلَى اللَّهِ ثُمَّ يُنَبِّئُهُم بِمَا كَانُوا يَفْعَلُونَ “Surely those who differred in their Din/Judgment and become sects/groups, you (messenger) doesn’t have anything to do with them, surely their affair is towards Allah, then He will tell them with what they used to do.” 34:44 وَمَا آتَيْنَاهُم مِّن كُتُبٍ يَدْرُسُونَهَا ۖ وَمَا أَرْسَلْنَا إِلَيْهِمْ قَبْلَكَ مِن نَّذِيرٍ “And We have not given them books from which they study. And before you We have not sent towards them from the warner” All the groups and the sectarian people are very happy with what they study and what they have. 30:32 مِنَ الَّذِينَ فَرَّقُوا دِينَهُمْ وَكَانُوا شِيَعًا ۖ كُلُّ حِزْبٍ بِمَا لَدَيْهِمْ فَرِحُونَ “Those who split up their Din/Judgment, and become Groups/Sects,- each party rejoicing in what they have!” The people of the Book are advised to come to one Kalima which is common among all. Please note there is only one Kalima which is common to all present sects in Islam i.e The Quran. You cannot attain any sect if you follow this Kalima except being a muslim/submitter to it. It is by following other sectarian books/teachings with Quran, the people get their sectarian beliefs; 3:64 قُلْ يَا أَهْلَ الْكِتَابِ تَعَالَوْا إِلَىٰ كَلِمَةٍ سَوَاءٍ بَيْنَنَا وَبَيْنَكُمْ أَلَّا نَعْبُدَ إِلَّا اللَّهَ وَلَا نُشْرِكَ بِهِ شَيْئًا وَلَا يَتَّخِذَ بَعْضُنَا بَعْضًا أَرْبَابًا مِّن دُونِ اللَّهِ ۚ فَإِن تَوَلَّوْا فَقُولُوا اشْهَدُوا بِأَنَّا مُسْلِمُونَ “Say O people of the Book come to a kalima/word that is equal between us and you that we serve none except Allah, that we associate nothing with him and that we do not take from among ourselves Lords other than Allah. If then they turn back say you bear witness that we are muslims / submitters” When people form into different groups and sects, then Allah’s punishment comes to them in the form of hatred and fighting which they inflict upon one another. 6:65 قُلْ هُوَ الْقَادِرُ عَلَىٰ أَن يَبْعَثَ عَلَيْكُمْ عَذَابًا مِّن فَوْقِكُمْ أَوْ مِن تَحْتِ أَرْجُلِكُمْ أَوْ يَلْبِسَكُمْ شِيَعًا وَيُذِيقَ بَعْضَكُم بَأْسَ بَعْضٍ ۗ انظُرْ كَيْفَ نُصَرِّفُ الْآيَاتِ لَعَلَّهُمْ يَفْقَهُونَ “Say He has power to appoint over you a punishment from above you or below your feet or clothe you into sects and makes you to taste the misery of one another. See how We explain the Ayats / signs so that they may understand.” 3:103 وَاعْتَصِمُوا بِحَبْلِ اللَّهِ جَمِيعًا وَلَا تَفَرَّقُوا ۚ وَاذْكُرُوا نِعْمَتَ اللَّهِ عَلَيْكُمْ إِذْ كُنتُمْ أَعْدَاءً فَأَلَّفَ بَيْنَ قُلُوبِكُمْ فَأَصْبَحْتُم بِنِعْمَتِهِ إِخْوَانًا وَكُنتُمْ عَلَىٰ شَفَا حُفْرَةٍ مِّنَ النَّارِ فَأَنقَذَكُم مِّنْهَا ۗ كَذَٰلِكَ يُبَيِّنُ اللَّهُ لَكُمْ آيَاتِهِ لَعَلَّكُمْ تَهْتَدُونَ “And hold fast all together with the rope of Allah and do not be divided among yourselves, and remember the favor of Allah on you when you were enemies and He joined your hearts in love; you became brethren and you were on the brink of the pit of fire and He saved you from it. Likewise Allah makes His Ayats/Signs clear to you that you may be guided.” When the sprit of Allah’s Ayas becomes clear and people accept the order of Allah and leave their sects to become true to the Book of Allah, (the true word of Messenger) and become submitter/muslims to the orders of Allah then all the sectarian and group hatred vanishes and people turn into brothers. https://wordpress.com/view/topicsfromquran.wordpress.com
