1. In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.
2. Praise be to Allah, the Cherisher and Sustainer of the worlds;
3. Most Gracious, Most Merciful;
4. Master of the Day of Judgment.
5. Thee do we worship, and Thine aid we seek.
6. Show us the straight way,
7. The way of those on whom Thou hast bestowed Thy Grace, those whose (portion) is not wrath, and who go not astray.
The verses lead us from the mercy of Allah, then to whom we must follow and finally a question or supplication to show us how to do this, show us this path.
As the answer to our question comes from Surah 2 onwards, then it becomes a mere ritual repeating 5 times a day to show us the straight path. Just get your answer from the Quran, remember what you are told to do, submit to this by doing it.
Please reflect that if a namaz prayer is a requirement for is to do 5 times a day, you would expect the instructions for this to come right after surah 1, but it does not.
Please also reflect on other posts showing that the command to do namaz prayer is not in the Quran, and could not, was not given to the Messenger, or to Abraham, so what we have is a none Quranic sanctioned act. If you accept this is the case but still want to do namaz, then I can respect your decision though I do not agree with it but I cannot accept that the Quran tells us to do this when it clearly does not.
