In Response To: Re: Salat, Tasbih, Birds, (jawaid ahmed) cont'd (jawaid ahmed,uk)

You wrote: “You may call anyone with whatever means you have. Then it was with word of mouth, then bells, then loudspeakers, then radio, then television, then mobile phones.”

You did not answer the question, rather deflected it as usual. The question was:

Since the mode and manner of this CALL is not recorded in Quran, are you or anyone free to re-define the Arabic word “nūdiya” as you desire?

And the answer is obviously No, you cannot re-define the Arabic word afresh as per your desire. This is exactly you and some other so-called quran-only fellows are trying to do for the word “salat.” All such attempts are in error, are failing, will continue to fail.

The word “CALL” has two parts, (i) the words to call with, and (ii) the manner/mode of delivering these words. Prophet chose certain words to call with and then adopted a method to deliver those words. Please note, this is a specific CALL, a particular CALL, only for prayers, and cannot be generalized. Subsequently, both parts (i) and (ii) were collectively known as “Adhan” or “adhan for prayer/salat.” Your response above is only responding to the mode/manner of delivery. If you don’t use the same words as prophet used, your call for salat will not be heeded by Muslims, irrespective of how you deliver it, via TV, Internet, Phone, Radio, whatever. Therefore, words of Adhan are set in stone so to speak (though not in Quran), whereas mode of delivery has changed and will continue to change. Another example, you can deliver Quran via Internet, phone, whatever, yet, contents are set in stone. Thus, Islam embodies a beautiful mixture of permanence and change.

Now to Salat, four physical elements of Salat/prayer (Wudu, Qiam, Ruku, and Sujood) along with reading from the book are set in stone. You can bring in your whatever extra-quranic notions to mount the verses with and repeat your erroneous interpretations, it will not impact the Salat as done by prophet and Muslims.

You wrote: “You are trying to equate the word 'call' and how it is not defined in the Quran with the word salat and how your namaz ritual is not defined as well!”

I brought it up to get the above question answered which you did not answer, because it exposes your faulty logic and reasoning.

You wrote: “Are you seriously still trying to tell us that all the details of the namaz ritual was left by Allah to our ancestors to give us the details? Five times a day, 24/7 and it is not important enough for Him to tell us how to do it properly.”

If by “ancestors” you mean the exalted prophet then yes, else no. The example of Call for prayers is an obvious one handed down to Muslims by prophet himself as I showed above. Doing “properly” is exactly the error both traditionalists and non-traditionalists like my brother are pursuing. The emphasis is on “form” and not on the goal/spirit for which Salat is mandated to begin with. You can put your feet two inches apart or two feet (similar to Adhan via phone or voice, etc.), it has no bearing on the purpose of the salat as long as you keep the purpose “remembrance of God” in focus.
