Anti Sunnah

In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.

I seek refuge in Allah from Satan the cursed.

 

Salaams brother Burhan:

 

By Allah's will, I already knew that your only question regarding the rakahs and salaat will surely come across, for this is the only question that the majority of all Muslims stick to in order to prove themselves by support of hadiths (man-made books that were written over 200 years after the death of Prophet Mohammad by various unscrupulous scholars). Allah's own words in the Quran condemns the hadiths and yet people are so ignorant to His words, thus challenging Allah's words. Whosoever challenges the Quran, challenges Allah Himself. So beware lest you fall astray.

 

Please read my recent emails that I sent you in order to answer your question. In case you didn't get them, please let me know.

 

Answer:

 

Anti Sunnah

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His  forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad(saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.

Jazak Allah Kheir for the reply. Brother, you are extremely adamant that the believers need to follow only the Quran, and not the Sunnah of the Last Messenger of Allah (saws). We had humbly asked you to provide us the Aayahs of the Quran for the prayer, if you are indeed truthful in your claim.

The site provides the Quranic evidence for only a few things We really would like to know where in the Quran are the other things, which we will highlight, are mentioned!

Our Question 1: Besides, we really would like to know where in the Quran is the tarteeb documented, that we have to make intention first, then stand, then ruku, then sujood, then sit, then sujood again, then stand again.etc. Please do give us this chronology of prayers from the aayahs of the Quran.

 

 

 

The Correct Azaan

If you pray by yourself, an Azaan is not needed. The Azaan is usually observed when a group of people are ready to observe the prayer. One person stands up and utters the Azaan words, or chants them as follows:

Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar (God is great, God is great).
Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar.
Laa Elaaha Ella Allah (There is no god besides God).

Our Question 2: Brother Danish, Where in the Quran exactly does it say that we have to say Allah o Akbar four times, and Laa Elaaha Ella Allah once in the Adhaan?

What Nullifies Ablution

Digestive excretions through the intestines, including gas, solids, or urine nullify ablution. Sleeping also nullifies ablution, since one becomes unaware. Thus one may observe a number of Contact Prayers with one ablution, provided he or she does not go to the bathroom, pass gas, or fall asleep.

Our Question 3: Beloved brother, where exactly in the Quran does it say that sleep also nullifies ablution?

Our Question 4: Where exactly in the Quran does it say that one may observe a number of Contact Prayers with one ablution?

HOW TO PERFORM THE CONTACT PRAYERS

1.  Face the direction of Mecca (Qiblah):

This is an organizational point decreed by God in 2:125. God wills that all submitters must face the same direction when they observe the contact prayers. In the U.S.A., the direction is slightly South of East.

2.  The Intention

In your own language, secretly or audibly, state your intention that you are about to observe the Contact Prayer. Remember to state the time (Dawn, Noon, Afternoon, Sunset, or Night).

Our Question 5: Where exactly in the Quran does it say that we have to make intention before we start the prayer? And where does it say that we have to state the time?

3. Raise your hands to the sides of your face:


Your thumbs touch your ears, and the palms of your hands face forward.

Our Question 6: Where exactly in the Quran does it say that we have to raise our hands and touch our thumbs to our ears, or that the palms have to face forward?

4.  Say "Allahu Akbar".        

As you raise your hands to the sides of your face, then move them down to your sides in a continuous motion, you say, "Allahu Akbar" (God is Great). This opens up the prayer. You are in contact with your Creator.

Our Question 7: Where exactly in the Quran does it say that we have to move our hands down to our sides in a continuous motion, and declare Allahu Akbarand that this opens up the prayer?

5. The Standing Position:

You are now standing with your arms resting naturally at your side. Some people place the left hand on the stomach, and the right hand on top of the left hand. Either position is correct - you may place your hands on your stomach while standing, or you may let your arms hang down by your sides.

Our Question 8: Where exactly does it say in the Quran that we have to keep our hands on the sides, or one on top of the other? And who is to say, if the Quran does not say, which position is indeed correct?

6. Recite "The Key" (Sura 1) in Arabic:

We learn from 2:37 that God gives us the words by which we establish contact with Him. We must utter the specific sounds dictated in "The Key". A translation of "The Key" would be human-made. The Arabic sounds of "The Key" represent a numerical combination that opens the treasure. Like a telephone number, unless a specific numbers are dialed, contact cannot be established. This is all the Arabic you need. Everything else can be said in your language. Reciting "The Key" in Arabic unifies all Submitters of the world, regardless of their languages.

[The Key]
1. BISMIL LAAHIR RAHMAANIR RAHEEM.  

    (In the name of GOD, Most Gracious, Most Merciful)
2. AL HAMDU LILLAHI RABBIL `AALAMEEN.  
    (Praise be to GOD, Lord of the universe)
3. AR RAHMAANIR RAHEEM.
    (Most Gracious, Most Merciful)
4. MAALIKI YAWMID DEEN.
    (Master of the Day of Judgment)
5. EYYAAKA NA`BUDU, WA EYYAAKA NASTA`EEN.
    (You alone we worship; You alone we ask for help)
6. EH'DENAS SIRAATAL MUSTAQEEM.
    (Guide us in the right path)
7. SIRAATAL LAZINA AN`AMTA `ALAYHIM; GHAYRIL  
    MAGHDOOBI `ALAYHIM WALADDAALEEN.

    (the path of those whom You blessed; not of those who have deserved
    wrath, nor of the strayers)

Since "The Key" is recited 17 times a day, it will become easy for you to recite and understand in a few weeks; it will become like your mother tongue.

7. The bowing position (Rukoo)

After reciting "The Key" while standing, you bow down into the position of Rukoo`. As shown in the figure, you bow down from the waist, keep the knees straight, and place your hands on your knees. Your eyes look at a point about 2 feet in front of you.

Our Question 9: Where in the Quran does it say that ruku means to bow down from the waist, keep the knees straight, and your hands on your knees, and keep your sight at a point about two feet in front of you?

As you move from the standing position to the bowing position you say, "Allahu Akbar".

Our Question 10: Where in the Quran does it say that at every movement in the Quran, we have to declare Allahu Akbar?

While bowing you say "Subhaana Rabbiyal Azeem" or "Glory be to God, the Great" or "God be glorified" for short.

Our Question 11: Where exactly in the Quran does it say that we have to declare Subhaana Rabbiyal Azeem in the ruku in every contact prayer?

 

8  Stand Up:  

As you stand up from the bowing position to the standing position you say, "Sami`Allahu Liman Hamidah" or "God responds to those who praise Him".

You stay in the standing position only a second, then you fall prostrate. As you go from the standing position to the prostration position you say, "Allahu Akbar".


9. The Prostration Position (Sujood):

From the standing position you go down on your knees, then place your forehead on the floor about 1-2 feet in front of your knees.

During prostration you say, "Subhaana Rabbiyal A`laa" or Glory be to God, the Most

High  or "God be glorified" for short 

10.  The Sitting Position.

As you sit up from the prostration position, you say, "Allahu Akbar." You remain in the sitting position only for a second, then you go down for the second prostration.

As you go down for the second prostration you say, "Allahu Akbar."

During the second prostration you say, "Subhaana Rabbiyal A`laa" or Glory be to God, the Most High  or "God be glorified" for short  Once you complete the second prostration, you have completed one full unit (Rak`ah).

11.  Stand up for the second unity (Rak`ah).

As you stand up you say, "Allahu Akbar."

The Dawn Prayer

This Contact Prayer consists of 2 units.

Repeat steps 5 through 11.


Thus, when you get from the second prostration you say, "Allahu Akbar," and assume the sitting position. While in the sitting position you pronounce the First Pillar of Submission, the shahhaadah:

Ash-Hadu Allaa Elaaha Ellaa Allah, Wahdahu Laa Shareeka Lah.  
(I bear witness that there is no other god beside God. He ALONE is God; He has no partner).

Look to the right and say, "Assalaamu Alaikum," then to the left and say the same. This completes the Dawn Prayer.

 

 

 

Brother Danish, we can go on and on.!!!! You have chosen to follow what you like from the Sunnah of the Messenger of Allah (saws), and added or deleted what you wished. For none of the question which we have asked you can be answered from the verses of the Holy Quran!

May Allah Subhanah guide you and us, and all the believers to the Truth of Al-Islam!
