In Response To: Allah is ambiguous in Qur'an? Really? (Junaid, Cape Town)

Dear brother, this is what you wrote previously: "Why help them more? Why make it *necessary* to concede that God was being ambiguous ('namaz' would have been used) when Quran says otherwise?"

In response to this "God being Ambiguous" I wrote "God was being ambiguous!!!! Please set aside your pre-conceived notions and read the book yourself. Namaz is not Arabic word, Salat is. Please enlighten me as to “What Quran says otherwise?”"

God is not being ambiguous brother, those exclamation marks (!!!!) were to highlight this. Starting from the exalted prophet up until 20th century, Salat was well defined and practiced by Muslims all over the world, East to West, North to South, though its purpose might have been forgotten by many and became mere ritual. Since the middle of 20th century, Salat is being made to be "ambiguous", with the sole purpose to bring in outside notions to bear on the clear Quranic verses, disregarding the context, the grammar, and established meanings in lexicons. This is what some like you are advocating.

Best Regards,
Dawood
