You are back to same questions which were answered multiple times. How many times do I need to quote the context? Does the context matter to you? Tell me how will the context change my conclusions?
You wrote “how any army would surrender if it rained!”. Give me a verse in which this claim of yours is made by God? You are just beating around the bush.
You wrote: “It begins with those who emigrate and enter unknown lands so SALAT can be shortened, that is, when gathering to get instructions about what to do just get on with it and do not spend excess time debating etc.”
Earlier, you defined Salat to be council, parliament, etc., now Salat is WHAT? You think Arabic is such a poor language it does not have a word for “instructions”? I am sorry to say harsh words but your nonsense is completely RUBBISH, not worthy of spending a minute, yet I am writing it perhaps you may take heed. This is what the verse in question says. Contemplate on it with due reverence that it deserves.
[4:102]: And when you are among them and lead them in SALAT, let a group of them stand with you and let them carry their arms. And when they have prostrated, let them be [in position] behind you and have the other group come forward which has not [yet] did the SALAT and let them do the SALAT with you, taking precaution and carrying their arms. Those who disbelieve wish that you would neglect your weapons and your baggage so they could come down upon you in one [single] attack. But there is no blame upon you, if you are troubled by rain or are ill, for putting down your arms, but take precaution. Indeed, Allah has prepared for the disbelievers a humiliating punishment.
You wrote 4:103 incomplete because it may expose something. See how beautiful it is:
[4:103]: And when you have completed the Salat/prayer, remember Allah standing, sitting, or [lying] on your sides. But when you become secure, re-establish [regular] prayer/Salat. Indeed, prayer/salat has been decreed upon the believers a decree of specified times.
Did it not occur to you what the phrase “decree of specified times” is doing in here?
Did it not occur to you, when they are secured, they should do what? “Full instructions” according to you???
Brother, God’s verses are ultimate argument.
You wrote: You “Try fitting your “salat = physical ritual, etc.” here?
Yes, I did in all these verses. Just change salat with prayers and see they all fit beautifully.
You wrote: “Faces? You quote Parwez when it suits you but ignore him when it does not. The word in the verses is chins and it is an idiom. If the chin is an idiom then the sujood is an idiom, representing humble submission to what they have heard, not throwing themselves to the ground!”
No dear, I did not quote only Parwez, I quoted Lane as well. But more importantly, I have not quoted Parwez or anyone in my just above post. I brought verses of the Quran to do what, TASREEF. You don’t want to do Sujood to the Lord, it is your choice. Verses in themselves are Mubeen, clear and concise.
