My Dear Brother, conversation on “Sujood” is a diversion from the current topic and has to wait for another day. I will show your misunderstanding IA when we undertake it.

With reference to “circumcision” you wrote: “Once again you fail to understand a simple sentence. Let me repeat: If the Quran does not speak about an act, for example circumcision or a set of rituals done in poojah prayer, then you can do them if you want but you cannot tell me or anyone else that it is a commandment from Allah, a ‘hidden revelation’, a must do tradition/creed from Abraham or anything else that makes it a religious obligation. You making it a religious obligation means not doing it is a sin, an haram act when you have no authority to do so.”

I did not make anything including circumcision Halal/Haram or obligatory on anyone. I am simply stating when Quran is silent on some of the Ibrahimic practices, it provides implicit sanction (vs. prescription) to those practices. If prophet sanctioned those practices as a matter of routine such as circumcision, these are now called Sunnah practices. I simply wrote, since “following Creed of Ibrahim” is a quranic command, I can understand those who do the circumcision and thus follow both the creed of Ibrahim and the Sunnah of the prophet. I did not say anywhere it is a “sin” or haram etc.

I am still waiting for a verse from you through which you concluded:

“… so it GIVES US THE GENERAL RULE THAT IF IT IS AUTHORISED BY QURAN, DO IT, IF NOT, THEN REJECT IT, ….”

Best Regards
Dawood
