113 Salaah - Point 3 - It's a Wicked World

113 Salaah - Point 3 - It's a Wicked World

This is an attempt to understand the word Salah, which we translate to mean Prayer.

Does it mean Prayer?

Then, what does Prayer mean?

There are many concepts that come in to play. I have identified just 5 of the many concepts that we must understand so as to understand Salah.

This is the 3rd such talk and the topic - an unusual one.

Still, very interesting!

113 Salaah - Point 3 - It's a Wicked World
 
Please Note
1.
 
I have had the great privilege, (since Aug 2010), of presenting talks on the weekly Radio Program
‘Culture of Islam’
[
Every Friday 8 to 8.30 pm, Radio Sri Lanka - FM 97.4
]2.
 
Since these are Radio Talks, I refer to, or address the audience as ‘listeners’
 3.
 
I am well aware that the audience to these talks would consist of people belonging to a variety of faiths. So as to make people of all faiths feel included, I very often use words and names that arecommon to all religions.4.
 
For these reasons, I use the name GOD, as well as Abraham, Moses, Jesus etc as well as thenames Allah, Ibrahim (Alaihis Salaam), Moosa (Alaihis Salaam), Easa (Alaihis Salaam) etc5.
 
Muslims by habit usually say ‘Sallallahu Alaihiwasallam’, when the name of Prophet Muhammadis mentioned, and ‘A
laihis Salaam' when the name of a Prophet is mentioned. However, in theseseries of talks I have reduced the use of these prayers & sayings to the bare minimum.6.
 
Muslims, also by habit, use a number of Arabic prayers or sayings, such as Alhamdulillah, InshaAllah and so on. Again, I have reduced the use of these prayers or sayings to the bare minimum.7.
 
Sometimes I have to write Arabic words in the English script.I have devised my own way of writing Arabic in English, as follows;

Dear Friends,Assalamu Alaikum,The drift of these talks are getting complicated. Let me explain.I am trying to discuss the first 5 Aayaths of Surah Baqarah.To do this I am taking the different phrases in each Aayath as the topic of discussion for eachweek. Thus far I have discussed 3 phrases
I first descussed the phrase Zaalikal Kithaab, which means ‘in that book’
Actually I discussed the word Zaalika in one talk and then the word Kithaab in another.So that was 2 talks.
I then discussed the phrases ‘Laa Raiyba Feehi’ which means ‘there is no doubt in it’ and‘Yu’minoona bil ghaib’ which means ‘believe in the unseen’
 So that was another 2 talks, totalling 4 talks.
 Now ‘Yu’minoona bil ghaib’ was a phrase from the 3
rd
Aayath of Surah Baqarah and this Aayathwas describing or pointing out to us, 3 diagnostic qualities of the Mutthaqi.It is these qualities that I am discussing as phrases.
So I had discussed the first quality, namely ‘Yu’minoona Bil ghaib’ or ‘believe in the unseen’
 
The second quality is ‘Wa Yuqeemoonas Swalaath’, which means ‘and establishes swalaath’
 
But then I realize that to discuss this phrase ‘Wa Yuqeemoonas Swalaath’, I would first have to
describe or discuss the word Swalaah itself.So I began discussing the word Swalaah. Now, Swalaah, like very other word or phrase in the Quran is a very huge topic and I found,
that especially for Swalaah,
if I were to even feel that I had spoken on swalaah
 properly
, then therewere many points that had to be first cleared or elaborated.Believe me, there are many many ineresting points or aspects on swalaah and all of them arenecessary if we are to understand what swalaah really is.It is fascinating!So I listed out these points. As I said, there are many.I have now selected 5 points and Insha Allah shall elaborate or explain them by way of thesetalks, before I could actually get on to the topic Swalaah itself.Over the last 2 weeks I discussed two of these points.So that gives us a total of 6 talks, so far. Now the 3
rd
topic or the 3
rd
point leading to swalaah is what has to be explained today, and I fear,that because there is so much material that has to be explained, I may need more than one talk todiscuss this topic, at least to my satisfaction.
