Do not make a show of calling on Allah
Date: Thursday, 29 December 2016, 12:40 pm

Peace,in being in the company of some of my Sunni Brethren,I have seen that on many occasions they pull out their prayer(?)rug in public places ,and proceed to do their ritual. I always wonder if this makes sense,why do they have to be so slavish about this observance.

I pointed out to a brother that even (for argument's sake)if Prophet Muhammad did that ,he did not have a clock to look at to do it at an exact time. Long story short ,why do you have to make a show of a ritual,no where sanctioned in the Qur'an, as they would readily admit,it is found no where in the Qur'an. Let us take a look at what the Qur'an says about calling on Allah.
Sura7:55.Call on your Lord humbly and in secret.Surely He loves not the transgressors.
See also Sura6:70 and Sura8:22 about using reason. The whole enigma of this issue is the zeal with which they pursue this ,but ignore the clear teachings of the Qur'an,this is why in this prophecy
Sura25:30.The prophet will say:"O my Lord,my people had fettered the Qur'an."
In closing I quote
Sura6:116.If you follow the majority of people on the earth,they will lead you astray
from the path of God,for they only follow conjecture and surmise.
So there is no excuse in saying the majority of N2I do it ,that will not be any reason,when you have a brain to reason for yourself. Tayo PA
