Dear Brother Dawood,
In 53:1-17, the whole idea of Angel Jibreel only comes into picture, upon which you are developing your interpretation, if one translate word رَأَىٰ “Raa” in 53:11(5) as “Saw”. But if one translates it to “Learned”, “Took to Heart”, “Observed”, like what Dr. Shabbir has done in his QXP, then there arises no need of appearance of Angel Jibreel and Exalted Prophet’s explanation to other about his encounter with Angel Jibreel.
*****************************************************************
In English translation of Lughat-Ul-Quran Vol II by Allama Parvez it is mentioned that:
(Rooyah): To comprehend some material thing.
This word is used for seeing with eyes, or have insight, or to dream or think about it.
Muheet says that “Ra-ai-rooyah” means to see with the eyes, “Rowayah” means to dream and “Raaya” to deliberate or see from heart. That is, deeply deliberating on something.
*****************************************************************

Why God needed to validate Prophet’s encounter (if any) with Angel Jibreel to other people? Even after God’s validation, it would still remain a personal experience of Prophet which cannot be shared by any other so what purpose does it serve? But it makes complete sense if God validate and ascertain His revealed words by Himself for people of that time and all time to come.

Brother Dawood, your approach in understanding the Quran by its grammar, lexicon, tasreef and context is undoubtedly commendable but, I will repeat again, it leaves a lot of rational and logical gaps and many loose ends. Whereas, QXP leaves no such gaps and loose ends besides conforming all other aspects like grammar, lexicon, context and tasreef.
So, I think QXP, Dr. Shabbir and his team deserve much more respect than what you are giving.

Again by depending upon literal meaning of 66:1-5, you are bringing Angel Jibreel for conveying something which didn’t become part of Quran and further drawing a conclusion that “angel Jibreel along with other angels was available as a helper to him”. In my opinion such conclusion of supernatural intervention belittle and undermine the mighty effort done by Exalted Prophet as a human being to explore all his human potential and develop his virtues to its maximum under the most tiring and difficult circumstances and thereby set an example for all other human being for all time to come. Otherwise, it would give an excuse to any ordinary person, like me, to say how I can follow Exalted Prophet for he was helped by angel. QXP leaves no such rational and logical gaps.

You insist that people of that time were aware of “Salat”, so there was no need to provide its detail. But 8:35 describes “Salat” of people of that time as whistling and clapping, a completely different picture from what you are giving by your assumption.
QXP 8:35 What is their worship at the House (of God) but whistling and clapping?
Yusuf Ali 8:35 There prayer (Salatuhum) at the house (of Allah) is nothing but whistling and clapping of hands.

Further, your argument of “continuity of practice of an entire community” is nothing more than the argument of opponents of Prophets who used to say “we are just following our forefathers” and it holds no sanctity. Also, this argument of yours opens another gap for raising human action almost equal to Quran.

No practice howsoever old it appears to be or claims to be cannot be put in parallel with a single word of Quran, since Quran is protected by God and no such protection is available to any practice of human being. There is no mean available to verify the certitude of claim of continuity of any practice beyond a certain time. All attachment, respect and reverence to any practice is just conditioning of mind by members of community in which one is born and raised.

I am not suggesting that any vices are due to the ritual prayers but I will not hesitate to say that all virtues of Islam has been replaced by few rituals. Just watch and observe any Muslim society particularly where they are in majority, how least they are focused on human development and human rights and how oversensitive they are on matters related to rituals.

Thanks and Best Regards,

Razi
