Why do we read Salat in Arabic;

By Ijaz Chaudry

 Part of The Salat is the following;

 [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.

 Now we know Adam recited these same words in his own language.  This enables us to prove that Salat should be recited in the language in which the revelations were revealed to the prophet.

      Specific Words

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

 Ever wonder why Muslim Salat has to be read in Arabic?

 The answer is in the Quran.  The verse 2:37 tells us that Adam received words, whereby God redeemed Adam through those words.  Of course Salat came into existence after Abraham.  All the prophets and believers, before Abraham  did not read Salat but worshiped God Alone through the words given to them like Adam was above.  The “Words” are language specific, thus we know that the Salat details were given to Muhammad in Arabic.  Thus the Salat should be read in Arabic.  But how can we be sure of this.  The answer is by using the mathematical miracle of 19.

 We recite Chapter 1 in our Salat, thus when we concatenate the verses from chapter 1 and not the name of this Chapter because we do not mention the name of the chapter in our Salat with 2:37 we get complete multiple of 19 confirming that Adam, received similar words as well in his language.  And, that these words are still used to redeem us through reciting Salat.

 1234567 2 37 = 64977223 x 19 or 1234567 2 37 / 190 = 6497722 / 3

 The Temporal, connection the verses from chapter in Arabic are used in Salat today, while the words to Adam in his language were revealed long time ago and is historical.   The Position 3 describes “Principle or Rule clarified” indeed 2:37 is a rule i.e. the Salat should be read in the language of the revelations.

 The Level or Theme for the above code is 8 which describes Theme “Muhammad Related”, thus indeed today’s Salat is read in Arabic which was Muhammad’s native language.

 The dictionary meaning of “word” is the smallest unit of language that can used independently…  Thus the words are language specific (The Chambers Dictionary)
