Salaam all
I would appreciate if one could point me a verses/verses that clearly show salaah as an act of worship by bowing, prostrating, standing and reciting from the Quran

I do believe there are almost 100 derivative uses of the root word salah and not being either Arabic speaking nor a scholar I would appreciate any help.

Jzk. And kind regards

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.

    • What does The Quran really say?
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.
