Lane and others will give you the meaning of words that are generally used and understood by everyone. We have the word pig in English which is an animal but somewhere in time it started to be used as a derogatory word for police officers, If we read the word pig in the Quran, are we going to think animal or police.
Lane says jinn are any of a class of spirits, lower than the angels, capable of appearing in human and animal forms and influencing humankind for either good or evil. Do we accept this nonsense?
I am giving these examples to show that we cannot accept anything and everything that we read, including what I am saying and especially you, Dawood Bhai, but we must go back to the roots, look at the meaning of salat as closely follow, and move forward. Namaz is a physical act that has nothing to do with following Allah, it is devoid of learning what He wants us to do, whereas doing what He wants us to do is salat.
