O, Mohammad we have revealed the Quran in that famous period when the entire humanity was vehemently burning under the man made barbaric laws. The Quran provides the guideline and shows the right path to the entire humanity. The Quran also endows with criterion or gives the permanent values to so that humanity can judge between the truth and the falsehood. The Qur’anic administrative training program is in fact your preparation in order to achieve constructive results in society. Therefore, whoever among you is the witnessed of this hard reality, he must join this Sallat training program. If any one of you still feels sickness [or feels languish or feels deficiency, or still feels weakness or imperfections of this ideology, or still doubtful, or feels short of this training] about this training or he/she is still in the phase of crossing from his/her previous religion to this system or he/ she in the period of journey of learning [from other faith or other system to this system] then he/she must go back for another period of training. Allah has introduced this training program in order to bring comfort and easiness in your life by removing difficulties and hardship caused by the cruel man made laws. The Sallat administrative training program will enable you to establish the sovereignty of Sallat program in the light of laws given by Allah and surely it will enable you to bring copious and constructive results for the betterment of the humanity.

I have read the above and I am going to do what I have advised others to do, and that is based on the following from Moses Maimonides:-

CHAPTER V
WHEN the chief of philosophers (Aristotle) was about to inquire into some very profound subjects, and to establish his theory by proofs, he commenced his treatise with an apology, and requested the reader to attribute the author's inquiries not to presumption, vanity, egotism, or arrogance, as though he were interfering with things of which he had no knowledge, but rather to his zeal and his desire to discover and establish true doctrines, as far as lay in human power. We take the same position, and think that a man, when he commences to speculate, ought not to embark at once on a subject so vast and important; he should previously adapt himself to the study of the several branches of science and knowledge, should most thoroughly refine his moral character and subdue his passions and desires, the offspring of his imagination; when, in addition, he has obtained a knowledge of the true fundamental propositions, a comprehension of the several methods of inference and proof, and the capacity of guarding against fallacies, then he may approach the investigation of this subject. He must, however, not decide any question by the first idea that suggests itself to his mind, or at once direct his thoughts and force them to obtain a knowledge of the Creator, but he must wait modestly and patiently, and advance step by step.

Thanks for your input, and I will respond in due course.
