peace,

There is no one verse of Quran that says salat involves all the things you mentioned, i.e. "bowing, prostrating, standing and reciting from the Quran ".

I assume by "bowing" you may be referring to "ruku" which is found in the context of salat in 2:43, however the association is not explicit.

I assume by "prostrating" you may be referring to "sujud" which is found in the context of salat in 4:102. Past discussion: http://quransmessage.com/forum/index.php?topic=477.45

I assume by "standing" you may be referring to "aqimu" which is a command commonly found accompanying the word salat, and it can mean establish/stand/observe/etc.

quran is quite strongly associated with salat however, please see 2:43-45, 4:103, 5:12-13, 7:169-170, 8:2-3, 19:58-59, 29:45, 31:2-7, 33:33-34, 17:78-79, 73:1-4, 73:20.

Salam Brother,

Salat means prayer. As-Salat is 'the prayer' which is enjoined in Quran on believers to establish. The below links analyze verses in Quran about As-Salat.

Salam,

Personally, i don't think it will breach point 1. As a said earlier: "what really matters is the "intention" of that person naming the child." Allah (swt) knows best.

Take care inshaAllah.

Dear ilker,

Wa alaikumus salaam,

In my view, when the Qur’an talks about being ‘blind’ on earth, I find it ‘metaphorical’ (2:171) in the sense of spiritual destruction (2:18). This follows as a result of an individual’s own utter ‘disbelief - kufr’ (6:109) where one’s own faculties of discernment and assessing information are sealed (2:7) off their power (7:179) after willful denial and neglect (2:6, 2:10) of clear and manifest signs and information availed to them (6:110-111).

It should thus be noted that in the first place, such an individual knew for sure the truth with the signs (ayat) revealed but chose to deny (kadhb) them or not take heed.

As a recompense, such a person is similarly despised on that Day (84:10) [as opposed to the ‘right-hand’ bearer - 17:71], left helpless, suffering their fate, thus symbolically ‘blind’ (a'ma) with none or nothing to lend a hand out of their misery. Thus, the way they chose to ‘forget/shun’ the verses on earth, 'blindly,' is the way they shall be ‘forgotten’ (20:126) that Day, 'blind' (20:125).

As for the unveiling of the ‘seal’ (khatam) or ‘screen’ ('idhwa-a) out of ‘blindness,’ I see this informing us that what the deniers used to deny and ignore/shun of signs and promises on earth (18:101) shall plainly be brought in the open (18:100) for them to witness that Day (68:42-43). The ‘screen’ ('idhwa-aka) shall be 'removed' (fakashafna) and the willful capacity to shun shall as a result have no room to administer (50:19).

Hopefully that helps insha Allah.

Regards,
Athman.

Discussions / Daniel prophet or Angel
« Last post by Deliverance on November 30, 2018, 03:20:19 PM »
Hi,Ladies and Gentleman

is there any hint in the AT or NT that Daniel is Prophet because although Daniel is not mentioned in the Quran by Name one could assume that he is an angel.

Because the anglesname in the quran are ending with "il" Jibril ,Mikail ,Azrael ,Israfil and by deduction Daniel has to be angle from an islamic view.

What do the Bibleexperts say?

Islamic Duties / Re: Practice of prefixing a given name with the name 'Muhammad'
« Last post by Shahmatt on November 30, 2018, 03:09:16 AM »
Thanks for your reply. My thoughts as follows:

1. The Quran does not name the prophet's children.
2. I am not saying that a child could not be given the name Muhammad, Ibrahim or similar. I am only referring to the use of Muhammad as a prefix. For example, would the name 'Muhammad Ibrahim' be problematic?
3. With reference to your two meanings of 'making distinction between prophets': I wonder if use of prefixed name 'Muhammad' would be in breach of point 1.

Thanks
