17:105 We have sent it down, and with the truth it has come down (to you O Prophet). We have sent you as a bearer of glad tidings and as a warner
17:106 With the Qur’an which We have gradually unfolded, so that you might convey it to mankind by stages. Indeed, We have sent it down step by step, as one revelation.
17:107 Say, "Believe in it or do not believe in it." Those who possess knowledge from the previous scriptures, when it is recited to them, they fall down to their chins, prostrating." [Zaqan = Chin, and not face]
17:108 They say, “Glory be to our Lord. Surely, the promise of our Lord has been fulfilled."
17:109 And so they fall down on their chins, weeping, and increasing in humility.
17:110 Say, "Call upon God, or call upon the Beneficent: By whatever name you call upon Him, to Him belong the best names and attributes of perfection. And do not be too loud in your prayer, nor speak in a voice too low, but follow a way between. [7:180]

Quran arabic corpus has this, so the WORD MEAN CHINS

(17:107:17) lil'adhqāni on their faces إِنَّ الَّذِينَ أُوتُوا الْعِلْمَ مِنْ قَبْلِهِ إِذَا يُتْلَىٰ عَلَيْهِمْ يَخِرُّونَ لِلْأَذْقَانِ سُجَّدًا
(17:109:2) lil'adhqāni on their faces وَيَخِرُّونَ لِلْأَذْقَانِ يَبْكُونَ وَيَزِيدُهُمْ خُشُوعًا
(36:8:8) l-adhqāni the chins إِنَّا جَعَلْنَا فِي أَعْنَاقِهِمْ أَغْلَالًا فَهِيَ إِلَى الْأَذْقَانِ فَهُمْ مُقْمَحُونَ

Parwez Dh-Q-N ذ ق ن

“اَلذَّقَنُ” (az-zaqan): chin {T}. Plural is “اَذْقَانٌ” (azqaan) as in 36:8. IT FIGURATIVELY MEANS THE FACE

17:107 They fall on their faces یَخِرُّوْنَ لِلْاءَذْقَانِ سُجَّدْا

Yusuf Ali
36:8. We have put yokes round their necks right up to their chins, so that their heads are forced up (and they cannot see).

Literal meaning is chin and when used figuratively they put face so namazis fall on their face in happiness at what they are doing is vindicated, NOT.

There is no Quranic reference to a physical namaz ritual. The falling on chins is AFTER they have heard the revelation and is a reference to their acceptance of the truth they have heard. Idioms are used and some take these literally which goes against 3:7, since chins is idiomatic then sujood cannot mean a physical prostration.

Something done 5 times a day and we have to take figurative and out of context verses from all over the Quran to justify a namaz ritual. Something is wrong there!
