Introduction To Salat Derived From The Quran;

By Ijaz Chaudry

Introduction

This document consists of self, verification at every stage.  The Quran sometimes does describe important information in terms of analogies, hence the, self-verification comes handy.  The analogical, nature of the verses requires 19 based codes to verify the meaning of those verses.  Each code has three stages of verification;

A) Code is multiple of 19.

B) Code has a Position; which describes the specific nature of the code involved, there are 9 Positions with each position having common description the Positions and its descriptions are illustrated at the end of this document in a form of table.

C) Temporal connection; when the chapter, verses and geometric values of entities are concatenated (put next to each other), this forms a 19 based code. This code has specific order called “Temporal connection”, which in simple terms means time related. This order can be seen when observing the code from left to right. On the left is recent or future information and on the right old or historical information.

D) Code has a Level or a Theme; which describes general nature of the code. There are 9 Themes with each Theme having common description.

These four steps are the general tool for the verification of any 19 based, code.

 You will see that all codes in this article are validated by these criteria. 

Primer to the actual coding for all Salats

This document is a precursor to the final coding document. It confirms surrounding areas of Salat with the help of the Quran and the miracle of 19.

The analogies and removal of doubt

The verse (74:31 points 3-4) says the following;

(3) to strengthen the faith of the faithful (4) to remove all traces of doubt from the hearts of Christians Jews as well as the believers…

These two points are continuation of 5 points in this verse and is directly related to the miracle of 19. Therefore in order to strengthen the faith of the faithful and remove doubt we will be using the miracle of 19, in order to establish the details of all Salats.

The Salat was introduced to us by Prophet Abraham (21:73). Since then the physical attributes have not much changed, by the leave of God. The main criterion changed in Salat is the content of Salat. This article will use Quran to bring Salat to the same standards as at the time of Abraham and Muhammad.

Salats mentioned by Time

Only two Salats are mentioned by name (24:58) even these two names indicate time element. Therefore observing Salat on time is emphasised because of this and because of the following verse;

(70:34) They consistently observe their contact prayers (Salat) (on time).

(70:35) They have deserved a position of honour in Paradise.

*Missing words on time or ealaa alwaqt their respective gvs are 110 & 537; (70:34-35); 110 537 70 34 35 = 5817773865 x 19; the temporal connection is spot on the facts mentioned in these two verses are true now and in the future "Salat" should be read on time, there is no such thing as Kaza Salat.  Position is 5, which is “Gift from God”. Indeed finding the correct way of performing Salat is Gift from God to us. Level is 9 which is “Misconceptions clarified”, indeed there is a wrong understanding in traditional Islam that Salat does not have to be read on time when it cannot be helped, by business or work and for any other reason. This code and its level remove this assumption and clarify it. **Al-Muzzammil 

 

1)      Dawn and Night prayer (24:58)

2)    Noon, Sunset and Night Prayers (11:114)

3)      Afternoon Prayer (2:238)

Why is Salat read in Arabic?

In order to answer this, we take the example of Adam in the Quran. At the time of Adam belief in God was sufficient, and the people who did this were called believers. Believers did not do Salat, because Salat was introduced much later at the time of Abraham.

However, the verse (2:37) and verses of Chapter 1 (The Key) clarifies why we should read Salat in Arabic, please go to the following link for further explanation;

Adam received

Misconceptions clarified, regarding Salat from the Quran

Chapter 17 (The Children of Israel) describes Salat in a nutshell. Jacob (Israel) was Isaac’s son and Abraham’s grandson. Israel had twelve sons who had families who then became a community called The Children of Israel, indeed Muhammad was also from this gene pool. This fact is told in the following verse;

(45:16) We have given the Children of Israel the scripture wisdom and prophet hood and provided them with good provisions; we bestowed upon them more blessings than any other people.

 

Since Muhammad was a Prophet, and the Children of Israel were given prophet hood it means Muhammad was the child of Israel, Isaac’s descendent.

Therefore it is not a coincident that this chapter (Chapter 17) is describing Salat in a nut shell. (17:106-107); confirms that Salat should only be from the Quran. (16:98) says to take refuge in God when reading the Quran. Since Salat is also recitation from the Quran (23:97-98) is read at the start of the Salat.

The following link removes doubt about the word “Prostrating” in (17:107) to be the prostrating in the Salat;

Prostration

Please read the following link to find out how Salat is described in a nut shell in Chapter 17;

(17:110-111)

What does “Magnify Him constantly” mean in (17:111)

Indeed all Salats have these three fundamental steps;

1)      In Salat when we bow down we say (56:74) “Glory, be to Lord the Great”,

2)      In Salat when we prostrate we say (87:1) “Glory be to Lord the Most High”.

3)      In Salat whenever we move between these two positions we say “Allah Hu Akbar” or “Allah O Kabeer”.

In all these three steps and the context of what is said, is magnification of God. Now by using common sense and basic logic when you re-consider the phrase “Magnify Him constantly”,  we think of a situation where, when we apply this phrase outside Salat, it means, we should non-stop day and night Magnify God, without sleeping, having a break, without eating or resting. This scenario contradicts the human nature. Therefore, we conclude that this phrase “Magnify Him constantly” is specific to Salat. Scientifically speaking a “constant” is a value associated to an entity. Therefore “constantly” in this phrase is specific number of times we do the three steps mentioned above, depending on which Salat we are doing, fjr and mughrib will have smaller constant than zhr, asr and isha..

Mathematical Proof

(17:110-111) 17 + 110 + 111 = 238; (56:74) & (87:1) 56 + 74 + 87 1 =218; 238 + 218 = 456 / 19 = 24 x 19;

456 / 190 = 2.4; Position 4 is “Act of Righteousness”, indeed the Position is telling us that this code is right.

The Level is 3 which is “Include missing information”, indeed by finding this code we have established the truth about what the phrase “Magnify Him constantly” mean in the verse (17:111). The missing information is that this phrase is associated with Salats.

Now you might question why Allah Akbar or Allah Al-Kabeer was not used in the code? You are correct to question that.  Since there is choice of what one can read in the Salat, from those two phrases for the same steps, it renders the code non-unique.  And the code should be unique. Therefore, these two phrases pertain it’s attributes under the general umbrella of “magnification of God”.

Mathematical proof (17:111) read in kneeling position

Now where does it say in the Quran that (17:111) should be read during the kneeling position in the Salat?  This fact is coded in the Quran by using subtle verses (52:48-49).

 

(52:48-49) … And glorify and praise your Lord when you get up. Also during the night glorify Him, and at dawn as the stars fade away.

 

The phrase “when you get up” above is unusual and it could not mean getting up from bed in the morning, because in the verse (52:49) we are glorifying again in the night and in the morning. Therefore if we had got up in (52:48) already in the morning and glorified why would we then in (52:49) glorify again in the morning. The reader of the Quran should be aware that there are no contradictions in the Quran. And assuming that (52:48) is referring to glorifying God when getting up in the morning, while it again mentions to glorify in the morning in the next verse constitutes contradiction.  Therefore it is safe to assume that the “when you get up” phrase in (52:48) is specific to some other, rising i.e. in Salat. The miracle of 19 once again proves this point.

 

52 + 48 + 17 + 111 = 228 or 12 * 19 or 228 / 190 = 1.2

 

Position 2 describes “Command used in various situations” indeed it is commanded of us to read (17:111) in the kneeling position in the Salat.  Thus (52:48) informs us that this getting up is after prostration when we recite (17:111).  (17:111) is where we praise and glorify God, when the verses and chapter numbers are added for these two instances we get number completely multiple of nineteen proving the fact that when we get up from prostration we should either glorify God by saying Allahu Akbar and go back to do another prostration or sit and read (17:111) which says “Praise be to God” i.e. glorification of God. The code 228 is Level 2 which is “Related to righteousness” indeed reading (17:111) in the kneeling position in the Salat can be understood as righteous move.

All-encompassing Complete Salat code

Now if you take (17:110-111) and only the verses of the Key which are 7 (because that is what is implied in (17:110-111)) .i.e. Praising and Glorifying God; which the verses from Chapter 1 the Key does.  And add the chapter and verse numbers we get;

 

17+110+111+1+2+3+4+5+6+7=266 = 14 * 19 or 266 / 190 = 1.4; h

 

ere in essence is complete, Salat in a code. Position 4 describes act of righteousness which Salat is. There are only two chapters in the Quran with 7 verses in it. (17:110) is clear of the fact which chapter we need to recite in our Salats, the one which has God’s name in it (17:110)...”Call Him God, or call Him Most Gracious, whichever name you use, to Him belongs the best names.” The one with God’s name mentioned is the Key the only other chapter which has 7 verses in the whole Quran is 107 but it does not have God’s name in it at all what so ever, therefore the code above is specific to chapter 1 the Key.  Again the Level is 2 which have a Theme Related to righteousness and indeed the code portrays complete Salat, and in general terms this code is right for majority of Salats. However, we will learn more about Isha and Jumma later.

 

Important note on Isha Salat (night prayers)

There is little extra we have to read at night prayer in the kneeling position. (17:79) during the night, you shall meditate for extra credit that your Lord may raise you to an honourable rank. (17:80) tells us what to read;

 

The crucial words in (17:79) are “extra credit”, which sets it apart from just “credit”. One can only obtain extra credit if one is already gaining credit.  We know from Quran that if one does Salat he/she will be rewarded as in “credit”. Therefore it would be a valid assumption that the extra credit is the credit obtained on top of the credit already obtained whilst doing Salat. So how can we associate the context of verse (17:79) with Isha Salat? We already know when we read (17:79) that it is talking about an event which happens at night, and the only confirmation we require is that it is to do with Salat. This will prove that (17:79) and the extra credit is determined by reading (17:80) in Isha Salat. Following is the proof;

(50:40) During the night you shall meditate on His name, and after prostrating.

 

 

This verse is talking about Night Salat (Isha), because “prostration” in the Quran is specific to Salat.  This verse also talks about “after prostration” which is exactly when we should read (17:111) and (17:79-81). (17:111) and (17:79-81) are the verses, which obtain extra credit in Isha Salat when they are recited.

(17:79-81); 79 + 80 + 81 = 240; (17:111); 240 + 111 = 351;

(50:40); 50 40 17 351 = 26527229 x 19; 50 40 17 351 / 190 = 2652722.9;

 

 

The Temporal Connection is that (50:40) comes first in the code above; because it is the trigger “after prostration” before the action takes place that is the recitation of (17:79-81 & 111).

 

Position 9 describes “Provision” and the provision here is the “extra credit” obtained by what we read in the kneeling position after prostration in the night prayers. The order of recitation of the verses is read (17:111) and then read (17:80-81), this code is confirmed in the article “Final confirmation of Salat.

 

Level is 7 which describes, “Disbelievers”, the obvious thing which comes to my mind is that the Sunni’s have kept this tradition of extra bit to the Salat at night.  However what they read is not from the Quran, when the Salat should be from the Quran alone (17:106-107).

 

 

The Friday Prayers (Al-Jumma)

2 4 4 3 4 = 1286 x 19; the number “2 4 4 3 4” are “Furz” (Obligatory) Rakas or units in our 5 daily Salats or prayers. Fjr, Zohr, Asr, Mughrib and Isha in this order. This order conforms to the “Temporal connection”. Starting from left of the code earliest “Dawn prayers” or Fjr, moving towards right consecutively and ending with “Night prayers” right most.

 Position 6 describes “Caution”; the believers are cautioned not to read any other units of Salat other than obligatory units as in “Furz”. The Level is 4 which describe verses which can be extrapolated in this case each unit of Salat has a group of verses which are recited in daily Salats or prayers. The extrapolation goes back to the time of Muhammad, when only obligatory units (rakas) were recited in the Salats.

So far we have established that only obligatory units apply to a typical daily Salat. But what about the special case the Friday prayers (Al-Jumma). In the noon Friday prayers only 2 units are read. When we put the code together the code breaks;

2 2 4 3 4 = 1180.8; we get a decimal answer, not multiple of 19.

However, in the Friday prayers the Imam does a sermon called “Al-Khutba” in Arabic; the geometric value of “Al-Khutba” is  Alif 1 + Laam 30 + Kha' 600 + TTa' 9 + Ba' 2 +  Ha' 5 = 647; now when we concatenate this with the 2 units for Friday prayers (Al-Jumma) and all other units of daily prayers we get complete multiple of 19;

2 647 2 4 3 4 = 1393286 X 19; 

The Temporal connection is correct it is telling us to do Al-Khutba first and then read 2 raka for Al-Jumma; all other units of daily Salats remain the same. Position is 4 "Act of Righteousness" indeed the Position, is telling us that that the code is correct. Level is 6 “Messenger related”, indeed this code was destined to be identified by the messenger Al-Muzzammil.

The verses from the Quran used in this article;

 

[1:1]  In the name of GOD, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.

[1:2]  Praise be to GOD, Lord of the worlds.

[1:3]  Most Gracious, Most Merciful.

[1:4]  Master of the Day of Judgment.

[1:5]  You alone we worship; You alone we ask for help.

[1:6]  Guide us in the right path;

[1:7]  the path of those whom You blessed; not of those who have deserved wrath, nor of the strayers.

 

     Specific Words

 

[2:37]  Then, Adam received from his Lord words, whereby He redeemed him. He is the Redeemer, Most Merciful.

 

     You Shall Observe the Contact Prayers

 

[2:238]  You shall consistently observe the Contact Prayers, especially the middle prayer, and devote yourselves totally to GOD.

 

[11:114]  You shall observe the Contact Prayers (Salat) at both ends of the day, and during the night. The righteous works wipe out the evil works. This is a reminder for those who would take heed.

 

 [17:78]  You shall observe the Contact Prayer (Salat) when the sun declines from its highest point at noon, as it moves towards sunset. You shall also observe (the recitation of) the Quran at dawn. (Reciting) the Quran at dawn is witnessed.

[17:79]  During the night, you shall meditate for extra credit, that your Lord may raise you to an honourable rank.

[17:80]  And say, "My Lord, admit me an honourable admittance, and let me depart an honourable departure, and grant me from You a powerful support."

[17:81]  Proclaim, "The truth has prevailed, and falsehood has vanished; falsehood will inevitably vanish."

 

[17:106]  A Quran that we have released slowly, in order for you to read it to the people over a long period, although we sent it down all at once.

 [17:107]  Proclaim, "Believe in it, or do not believe in it." Those who possess knowledge from the previous scriptures, when it is recited to them, they fall down to their chins, prostrating.

 

[17:110]  Say, "Call Him GOD, or call Him the Most Gracious; whichever name you use, to Him belongs the best names." You shall not utter your Contact Prayers (Salat) too loudly, nor secretly; use a moderate tone.

[17:111]  And say: "Praise be to GOD, who has never begotten a son, nor does He have a partner in His kingship, nor does He need any ally out of weakness," and magnify Him constantly.

 

(21:69) We said "O fire be cool and safe for Abraham."                                                                                 

(21:70) Thus they schemed against him but we made them the losers.                                                   

(21:71) We saved him and we saved Lot to the land that we blessed for all the worlds.                   

(21:72)And we granted him Isaac and Jacob as a gift and we made them both good doers.                         

(21:73) We made them imams who guided in accordance with our commandments and we taught them how to do good work and how to observe the Contact Prayers (Salat) and the obligatory charity (Zakat). To us they were devoted worshipers.

 

(23:97) Say "My Lord I seek refuge in You from the whispers of the devils.

(23:98) "And I seek refuge in You my Lord lest they come near me."

 

 [24:58]  O you who believe, permission must be requested by your servants and the children who have not attained puberty (before entering your rooms). This is to be done in three instances - before the Dawn Prayer, at noon when you change your clothes to rest, and after the Night Prayer. These are three private times for you. At other times, it is not wrong for you or them to mingle with one another. GOD thus clarifies the revelations for you. GOD is Omniscient, Most Wise.

 

[50:39]  Therefore, be patient in the face of their utterances, and praise and glorify your Lord before sunrise, and before sunset.

[50:40]  During the night you shall meditate on His name, and after prostrating.

 

[52:48]  You shall steadfastly persevere in carrying out your Lord's command - you are in our eyes - and glorify and praise your Lord when you get up.

[52:49]  Also during the night glorify Him, and at dawn as the stars fade away.

 

[56:74]  You shall glorify the name of your Lord, the Great.

 

[70:34]  They consistently observe their contact prayers (Salat) on time.

 

[74:31]  We appointed angels to be guardians of Hell, and we assigned their number (19) (1) to disturb the disbelievers, (2) to convince the Christians and Jews (that this is a divine scripture), (3) to strengthen the faith of the faithful, (4) to remove all traces of doubt from the hearts of Christians, Jews, as well as the believers, and (5) to expose those who harbor doubt in their hearts, and the disbelievers; they will say, "What did GOD mean by this allegory?" GOD thus sends astray whomever He wills, and guides whomever He wills. None knows the soldiers of your Lord except He. This is a reminder for the people.

 

[87:1]  Glorify the name of your Lord, the Most High.
