Salat should be from The Quran Alone;

By Ijaz Chaudry

Why is it important to do Salat from the Quran? Does it say anywhere in the Quran that Salat should be from the Quran direct or implied. Yes it does, please read this article to find out.

Rashad interpreted some of the verses where the actual wordings in Arabic meant something else.  Most of these interpretations are okay except few and (17:46) is one of them.  Rashad Khalifa as a messenger was allowed to explain the verses as he was inspired at that time so there is nothing wrong for him interpreting the verses the way he did.  These interpretations were correct for that time and place.  However, God can fix and replace these revelations by sending another messenger.

[13:39]  GOD erases whatever He wills, and fixes (whatever He wills). With Him is the original Master Record.

However, the disbelievers will say;

[16:101]  When we substitute one revelation in place of another, and GOD is fully aware of what He reveals, they say, "You made this up!" Indeed, most of them do not know.

[16:102]  Say, "The Holy Spirit has brought it down from your Lord, truthfully, to assure those who believe, and to provide a beacon and good news for the submitters."

[16:103]  We are fully aware that they say, "A human being is teaching him!" The tongue of the source they hint at is non-Arabic, and this is a perfect Arabic tongue.

So how does Quran define the word “revelations” please read the, following;

Some people might understand the revelations as what is written in the Quran, but that is not strictly true, because revelations could also be other than that.  Further translations of the Quran could reveal some aspect which could also be revelation, as in the following example.  Revelation could also be a simple instruction from God as in the following verse;

[20:38-39]  "When we revealed to your mother some revelation.   "Saying: `Throw him into the box, than throw him into the river. The river will throw him onto the shore, to be picked up by an enemy of Mine and an enemy of his.' I showered you with love from Me, and I had you made before My watchful eye.

Thus the mathematically proven codes in the Quran are also revelations.

Indeed the fact that, (16:101)…”You made this up!”…, above is addressed to Al-Muzzammil.  (16:101-103) add 101, 102 and 103 we get 306, concatenate with chapter and verse where Al-Muzzammil is mentioned we get 16 306 73 1 = 858249 x 19.

Let’s take Rashad’s translation and just change one word giving it the correct English translation the word “Dakurta” in Arabic;

     Quran: The ONLY Source

[17:46]  We place shields around their minds, to prevent them from understanding it, and deafness in their ears. And when you preach your, Lord, using the Quran alone, they run away in aversion.

And the following is the one which has been changed, and the change is only one word from “preach” to “mention”.  The Arabic word “Dhikurta” meaning is more, closer to “mention” then “preach".

     Quran: The ONLY Source for Salat

[17:46]  We place shields around their minds, to prevent them from understanding it, and deafness in their ears. And when you mention, your, Lord, using the Quran alone, they run away in aversion.

Now let’s analyse why “mention” is better than “preach” above.  First, the word preach is synonymous, with, uphold, because in both instances the source is the same, I mean when you preach Quran Alone, you uphold the Quran Alone.  However, some of us are told to uphold, the Torah and the Gospel, this negates the concept “preaching with Quran Alone”;

[5:66]  If only they would uphold the Torah and the Gospel, and what is sent down to them herein from their Lord, they would be showered with blessings from above them and from beneath their feet. Some of them are righteous, but many of them are evildoers.

 Thus one can preach Quran, Torah and Gospel… And does not have to be Quran Alone…

Since there are no contradictions in the Quran this cannot be correct, therefore the correct translation is the one with “mention” in it of (17:46);

 [4:82]  Why do they not study the Quran carefully? If it were from other than GOD, they would have found in it numerous contradictions.

 I would just like to deliberate on the word “mention” in the above verse.  It should make sense that when we mention something it is audible process, like in the Salat.  We can all mention God in the Quran, this “mention” in (17:46) is more specific, because mentioning God in the Quran can be done by the disbelievers as well as the believers. The disbelievers will run in aversion only if they can hear us. When we do Salat they can hear us because Salat is recited in a moderate tone (17:110) and hence they run in aversion, because they can see the difference between our Salat from theirs. Therefore “mention” in 17:46 above has to be Salat. This is purely based on the context of the verse.  The mathematical proof follows.

     Tone of the Contact Prayers (Salat)

[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 proclaim: "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.

So how can we confirm that Salat should be from Quran Alone?  This is how, when we concatenate 110 111 46 we get 579534 x 19 or 110 111 46 / 190 = 57953 / 4, confirming this fact. 

Another example;

Geometric value of Al-Salat is;

Alif  = 1, Laam  = 30, Suad  = 90, Laam = 30,  Wae = 6 , Tae = 400, Hae = 5 when add these we get 562 when we add 46 (17:46) and 562 we get 608 = 32 x 19 or  608 / 190 = 3 /2.

The Position is 2, which describes, “Command used in various situations” indeed 17:46 is command to believers that they should read Salat from the Quran alone.

There is no, Temporal connection because the code is not concatenated.  However the trend in the codes points out that (17:46) is also applied to Salat. The codes where verses are added are application of those verses.

The Level is 3 because the code (608) sits between 380 and 6959 which 19 x 19 x 19.  The Theme for this Level is “Include missing Information”.  Indeed (17:46) includes the missing information which is that the disbelievers are averted from reading the Salat from the Quran, because today’s disbelievers read Salat part of which is from Hadith.

The following verse again re-iterates the fact that Salat should be from Quran Alone;

     Abraham: Delivered All

     Religious Duties of Submission (Islam)

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

In 21:73 it say’s “guided in accordance with our commandments”…  We know God’s commandments are in His scriptures, and that Quran is a Scripture.

Geometric value of Al-Quran is;

Alif = 1,  Laam = 30, Qaf = 100, Rae = 200, Alif = 1, Noon = 50 when we add these we get 382.  When we concatenate this with 21:73 we get complete multiple of 19 confirming that Salat could only be derived from the Quran.

382 21 73 = 201167 x 19 or 382 21 73 / 190 = 20116 / 7

Temporal connection above is that gv of Quran left most, i.e. most recent which is true Quran was more recent then the scenario in 21:73 which depicts the prophets before Muhammad.

Position 7 describes “Disbelievers” indeed the disbelievers have misconstrued this verse and they say that Salat and Zakat has been passed through generations and these are not derived from the scriptures i.e. the Quran.

This Level 6 which is the Theme “Messenger related” indeed (21:73) is addressing messengers like Abraham, Jacob and all the Messengers after.

The context of complete Salat is embedded in (17:110-111).

Also there is further confirmation in the Quran which states the facts that Salat should only be drawn from the Quran and that today’s Salat is the same Salat since previous generations;

(21:7) We did not send before you except men whom we inspired. So ask people of remembrance if you do not know. We did not send before you except men whom we inspired. So ask people of remembrance if you do not know.

The word “remembrance” in the above verse has a specific meaning which is now clarified and is remembrance of God through Salat. The reference above to the people of “Remembrance” is further explained further as follows including the following verse where it tells us that the main purpose of Salat is to remember God and hence the word “remembrance” emphasised in the above verse;

[20:14]  "I am GOD; there is no other god beside Me. You shall worship Me alone, and observe the Contact Prayers (Salat) to remember Me.

The people of remembrance mentioned in this verse are the people who read Salat the correct way and include (17:110-111) in it. (17:110-111) 21 + 7 + 17 + 110 +111 = 266 = 19 x 14. Position 4 is “Act of righteousness”, indeed these are the people who can read the Salat the right way. Level is 2 “Related to righteousness”, reading Salat correctly is means of righteousness.

(21:10) We have sent down to you a book in which is your remembrance. Do you not understand?

This verse is suggesting that all Salat instructions are in the Quran. (21:7) & (21:10) are connected. 21 + 7 + 10 = 38 = 19 x 2. Position 2 is “Command used in various situations”, indeed this command has been issued and is true. Level is 2 “Related to righteousness”, indeed the only right way to do the Salat is to do it from the Quran. See the article on Salat and completely coded Salat.

(21:24) Have they found other gods beside Him? Say "Show me your proof. This is the reminder of those with me, and reminder of those before me." Indeed most of them do not recognize the truth; this is why they are so hostile.

The reminder is the “Salat” with which we remember God. This Salat has always been the same in the past and in the present. (17:110-111) is in essence code for Salat. 17 221 21 24 = 9063796 x 19. Position 6 is “Caution”, indeed there are many ways people do Salat but this is the only correct way. Level is 7 “Disbelievers” indeed the disbelievers will not accept this fact.

Why do we take shoes off when reading Salat;

The following code confirms and gives better understanding why we take off our shoes when we recite Salat.  The word Salat in Arabic means contact, in fact when we recite Salat we make esoteric contact with God.  Thus when Moses saw God in Tawwa he took off his sandals here is the code;

[20:12]  "I am your Lord; remove your sandals. You are in the sacred valley, Tuwaa.

[20:14]  "I am GOD; there is no other god beside Me. You shall worship Me alone, and observe the Contact Prayers (Salat) to remember Me.

Add 20 + 12 + 20 + 14 + 17 + 110 + 111 = 304 = 16 x 19 and 304 / 190 = 1.6.

The Position is 6 which describe Caution, indeed this is the caution that you are in contact with God when you read Salat thus you should be very cautious doing so this includes taking your shoes off in respect to God.  The Level is 2 which has a Theme “Related to righteousness” thus taking shoes off when reading the Salat is an act of righteousness.
