Jawaid Bhai has given you a detailed reply regarding meaning of the root ص ل و given in different dictionaries. Arabic did not develope after the revelation of the Quran rather the Quran was revealed in an existing living Arabic language, the language of people, so they could understand it without seeking help from religious clergy. The guidance for every seeking mind. So Quraish were using Arabic as it was developed over time before the revelation of the Quran. Salat = ritual prayer as written in dictionaries can be dated back to the time of writing of those dictionaries - a long time after the revelation of the Quran.
If you follow the language then you do not have to ask for fatwas about how to perform a ritual prayer in areas like polar regions where sun schedule does not follow your prayer timings. salat is following Allah's commands closely and it can be done anywhere and at all the time. If you still believe that salat = ritual prayer please continue with it.
You wrote: Untenable. If you do think, it is referring to some stuff mentioned in previous verses, why you did not take time to elaborate on it? Just stating something in 62:2 does not make a case? Show me how and where Salat in 62:9 is related to 62:2? Same is true for your other cherry-picked words, show it to me via grammar and lexicons? (unquote)
Dawood Bhai you should read the ayats and understand the connection yourself rather than following other's interpretation. Anyway Jawaid Bhai has already posted a reply in this regard. Thank you Jawaid Bhai.
You wrote: The first part of the above observation is again same repetition of unsubstantiated claims. What are “coined” meanings? When were these meanings forced on people? Which book, lexicon, history tell you of such occurrence? Where did you get the idea that Arabs understood the meanings of root ص ب ر to be “accept the fate”? (unquote)
You substantiate a claim that you make but you do not have to substantiate meanings of an Arabic word. Arabic is a root based language and meanings of a root are like etching in a stone. Coined meanings are made ignoring all of these rules with certain objectives - controlling people's minds and gaining wealth and rule.
Look at the mushroom growth of 5 star complexes around Kaaba so people can spend about $16000 to get their sins forgiven. Not a bad deal for those who can arrange this kind of money. I do not know about their forgiving of their sins but I do know that Saudis have a great plan to replace petro dollars with hajj and umra dollars.
Dawood bhai Quran has shown me my path towards Allah. I rejected to be a sheeple few years ago and do not believe in any mindless and soulless rituals. If you believe that these rituals are ordained by Allah and they benefit you and your surroundings then please continue following the Arab culture. It is hard to believe that how Shaafi and Co brainwashed people and how opponents were silenced by using power of the state. I hope this spell will be removed sometime in future because with the power of internet people have started challenging the system - thanks to believers like G A Parwez , Dr. Shabbir, brother Jawaid to mention a few.
