34:34 Whenever We sent a warner to any community its rich elite declared, “We reject the message you are sent with.”
One of the basic principles of the Qur’an is that MUTRIFEEN always oppose the message of Allah. Apply this principle to whatever rituals we practice in the name of religion. If our rituals get opposition from MUTRIFEEN, they can be considered as Divinely given, otherwise?????
Our present Saum is not exempted from this basic principle.
