Greetings and Peace, all  :group:

IMO, any prayer directed towards ALLAH alone is valid and not wasted.

2:115 And to GOD belong the east and the west, so wherever you turn, there is the face of GOD. GOD is Encompassing, Knowledgeable.

2:177 Piety is not to turn your faces towards the east and the west, but pious is one who believes in GOD and the Last Day, and the angels, and the Book, and the prophets, and who gives money out of love to the relatives, and the orphans, and the needy, and the wayfarer, and those who ask, and to free the slaves; and who upholds the contact prayer, and who contributes towards purification; and those who keep their pledges when they make a pledge, and those who are patient in the face of hardship and adversity and when in despair. These are the ones who have been truthful, and these are the righteous.

59:24 He is GOD; the Creator, the Initiator, the Designer. To Him belong the most beautiful names. Glorifying Him is everything in the heavens and the earth. He is the Noble, the Wise.


May the Lord bless you and keep you.
May the Lord make his face to shine upon you, and be gracious to you.
May the Lord lift up his countenance upon you, and give you peace.


May ALLAH see fit to Guide all seekers.

 :peace:

hi guyz,
What about  Jum'a ? " لْجُمُعَةِ  "
If
Jum’a prayer is translated as congregational prayer. Then Friday is a just day; not a congregational prayer.
We can do Jum’a prayer whenever we hear the call.

 :group:

** It seems we people made the day Friday as a congregational prayer. huh?   :peace:

Your connection with God sounds good. If it works for you then take from Al Quran and recite it in your salat. For example; if you read something in Al Quran that you like, then say it in your salat.

Islamic claim:

'Allah' is simply the Arab word for 'God.'

Reality:

'God' in Arabic is translated 'ilah,' not 'Allah.'


Allah = الله (alif ا, lam ل, lam ل, ha ه)

ilah = اله (alif ا, lam ل, ha ه)
Islamic claim:

'Akbar' means 'great.'

Reality:

'Akbar' in English is translated 'greater,' not 'great.'


كبير (kebir) = Great

أكبر (Akbar) = Greater

'Allah' is not simply the Arabic word for 'God,' but the name of Islam's chosen deity and 'Akbar' does not mean 'great,' but 'greater.' Greater than what? The answer is - Allah is greater...than whatever god you happen to believe in.
As far as I am aware there is no action in Al Quran that speaks of doing salam to the angels.
Hope this helps.
Peace

Btw, I'm pretty sure the correct translation is "Allah kabir" or something although my knowledge of arabic is pretty limited.

Also, as others have said no salat is wasted; people just have different methods of doing it. I still do the prostrations, but I recite Qur'anic verses as well. I think the last several suras were actually revealed as prayers tbh. At least that's the way I interpret it.
