Salamun Alaikum

By committing to live life in accordance to Allah's guidance contained in The Message and by respecting and obeying the law of whichever country I am residing or visiting.

Peace

51:15
Indeed, the righteous will be among gardens and springs,

51:16
Accepting what their Lord has given them.  Indeed, they were before that doers of good.

51:17
They used to sleep but little of the night,

51:18
And in the hours before dawn they would ask forgiveness

Shows how important night prayer and fajr are.

To those doing ritual prayer, prove using the Quran:

- the concept of a "raka"
- how many supposed "raka" you are to do per "prayer"
- what to do in the "raka"
- where the word "raka" is mentioned
10:41 If they deny you, say: "My works are for me, and your works are for you. You are innocent of what I do, and I am innocent of what you do."

You're a bit too dogmatic, in that you expect all people who uphold salat to uphold it the same. If you

have a preconceived bias about a specific thing then it clouds your judgement and will not permit you

constructively analyze the matter at hand.

Is performing a salat which includes standing, kneeling and prostrating along with reciting and reading of Quran at prescribed fixed times supported by the Quran?

Yes. Yes it is.

However I do not want to presume that is what you are after perhaps you are strictly referring to traditionalist ritual prayer.

First define what you mean as ritual prayer.

Is the concept of raka your only objection to ritual prayer?

If so then, know that many do not even go by such notions when upholding their daily commitment.

Many people have different ways of upholding salat and many do not include the concept of raka as myself, for example.
إِنَّنِي مِنَ الْمُسْلِمِي

My Lord I repent to you for anything I uttered concerning You for which I have no knowledge of. Indeed You are the Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful

That's what I believe also and shafi's debate seems to show that people didn't do salat everyday. They had no rakah either.

Do you have a link for his debate? Thank you

The light in me salutes the light in ye.

My personal inward journey, or rather contact with G.D, has led me to kundalini yoga in specific, but also tai chi, and reiki,...




The true meaning of islam, in a universal/esoteric context, is wholeness☤



Adem and its mate are within you, the Anima and Animus.

Iblis (hybris) in the quran denotes the super-ego, in psychology.

salat is not prayer, it is a connection/bonding/tuning into the universal frequency of oneness within/out you. In this meditative state, there is no-mind., no you/identity, no ego, no gender.. only surrender
 an euphoric oneness with the unified field of awareness/consciousness that permeates all; thusly giving us access to the pure knowledge/gnosis of the akashic record, and eventually recovery of your long forgotten etheric body and psychic faculties.
