Jawaid bhai, yes you did provide a list, but as usual you did not answer the central questions: Did Hadeeth come first or Salat/prayer?
You wrote: “Answer: the creed of Abraham was to follow monotheism and this is what the Messenger and all of us are asked to do. There is no verse in the Quran stating that the creed of Abraham is a namaz ritual and no verse giving the instructions. Following the truth of what others have done, as judged and confirmed by the Quran, is doing what is right. You have told us fairy tale stories to justify what you believe that is not in the Quran, hence, you are following hadith and what your ancestors have told us and not the Quran. This is ancestor worship.”
Jawaid bhai, your erroneous assertion was comprehensively dealt with earlier as well, fully exposed as your desires and notions. Repeating same erroneous logic does not get the answer right. Let me back track a bit to show you once more how misplaced your understanding of Quran is.
[3:95]: Say, " Allah has told the truth. So follow the Creed (Millat) of Abraham, inclining toward truth; and he was not of the polytheists."
Lane, supplement: “Milat = A religion, a way of belief and practice in respect of religion.”
Lughat, p 1559: “In Quran, Millat represents deen and its method of following it (Mushrab o maslik and deeni tariqa)… Islam is called Millat-e-Ibrahim, i.e. the method Ibrahim adopted as per the wahi from God.”
Further, this creed of Ibrahim is clarified in terms of Manasiks, religious practices as per Ibrahim’s supplication to God:
[2:128]: Our Lord, …. And show us our rites (manasiks) and accept our repentance. …
Thus, we establish beyond doubt that “creed/millat of Ibrahim” is those methods and practices (Manasiks, plural) in religion Ibrahim adopted as per wahi. Monotheism is not a method/practice, rather a belief, and is singular. Thus, your conjecture is laid to rest.
Now to Ibrahim and Salat in [2:125]: And [mention] when We made the House a place of return for the people and [a place of] security. And take, [O believers], from the standing place of Abraham, a place of prayer. And We charged Abraham and Ishmael, [saying], "Purify My House for those who perform Tawaf and those who are staying [there] for worship and those who bow and prostrate [in prayer]."
Thus, Salat=prayer was well known to Quraish and prophet with its Qiam, Ruku, and Sujood elements. What I have quoted so far is fully from Quran and in line with the Quran. It is possible I could make mistakes in inferring something from the Quran and I stand to correct it if brought to my notice. However, none of your extra-quranic ideas and notions stand when verses are viewed in context, grammar, lexicon, and tasreef. An example of your outside notions (fairy tales) is your assertion that Manasiks/rites is monotheism. I can only LoL on such fairy tales of yours.
Now back to fundamental questions. Answer the following:
1. Did prophet follow the creed (religious practices) of Ibrahim as defined above? Yes, NO?
2. If yes, was it ancestor worship? Yes, NO?
3. How did prophet follow the “creed (religious practices) of Ibrahin”?
