Why would you need to connect with Allah who's closer than your jugular vein? :confused:

Have you ever meditated?

There are degrees of clarity to the mind. Even as God is closer than your own heart and veins, the atheist experiences total disconnection. The opposite is the experience of samadhi: total absorption in the love for God.

And the difference between these two states is colossal. If you don't meditate, don't knock it. Without an understanding of what you are talking about, you can only babble. These are states of ecstatic bliss that are attainable by any who will to attain them. You see no benefit to being in a 24/7 state of serene bliss? That's the result of focused meditation and self-purification.

Or more in your face:

So shall you enter your grave and arise to the last

Meditating isn't connecting to Allah imo. I think that by fasting in the Ramadhan and meditating ( just like Muhammad who did so ) you can enter your subconsciousness for a while and know the truth.

Peace JLM,

I think my point is that we either believe Salat is prayer or assembley.  I believe it is assembley, but how on earth do we assemble three times a day everyday, and what do we talk about?  It is at this point that I think, I do believe Salat is assembley, but it seems there is something missing from the equation.  I will keep reading (the Koran) and pondering.

Peace.

But those aren't the only 2 definitions ffs.

Kaikenred,

Can you show me where you have made a valid contribution to this discussion.  I think your current behaviour on these boards warrants a little peep in the Koran to get a bit of guidance on how to behave and conduct yourself.  If you are willing to behave like a decent human being I will be willing to talk to you, but while you are behaving like the devil's messenger, then please decline from addressing me.  I will now ignore anything you write unless of course you give me an indication that you are prepared to be reasonable.

Dawn.
