On closing the prayer
« on: January 27, 2013, 05:45:28 PM »
I have come across this article on how prayer must be ended according to the Quran.

http://www.quran-islam.org/islam/main_topics/ending_of_the_salat_%28P1167%29.html

Translations of the Arabic seem alright to me. Comments are welcome!

Peace,

I personally agree and have been doing it since 2001.

@ HOPE,

Thanks very much for the input.

Would you say that the Quranic verse amounts to a command to close the prayer in this manner?

I never thought of it as a command!.  10:10.1 starts with "daʿwāhum" translated as prayers, does not say salaat though;  later  "waākhiru daʿwāhum" is translated as last (of) their call.  I had read the article you shared in 2001and discussed it with its author.  Since I do not do salutations at the end, I feel comfortable ending the prayer this way.  You talk to your heart and decide what you want to say.

Alright. Thanks very much. It sure makes more sense to close the prayer in this manner over the common method.
