Father was a feudal ethnically from Pakistan's southern province of Sindh and spoke the local Sindhi language in addition to his shrieky English he learned from Oxford.  The mother had no reliable ethnic identity except that she was viewed a Pakistani during her lifetime.  She couldn't speak any language flawlessly.  According to storytellers she had her roots in some Kurdish Persian family and her ancestors migrated to south Asia some 500 years ago.   That way any one could be from any where.    Of course she didn't know a word of Farsi and her family is totally unknown even in Pakistan.

OMG !!    What an unforgettable howler.    What language did this weird looking triple-chinned woman's family speak?    When parents are naming their new born, they scan the definition of every suggested name thoroughly.

lol, yeah .... ..  height of indecorum. 

Her official age when she died was supposedly 54.  She was actually at least 4 years older, not a day less than 58.   Looked 60.   If she was alive today would be 70 and I'm sure would look in mid 70s.

............   Verse 2:238 (Al-Baqrah) which commands and reminds the human society of respect and obedience during prayers was revealed in Medinah.  By that time the Muslims were well acquainted with the practice of offering salat.  While only Allah knows best, I don't think that it was as late as the Medinah period when the Muslims realized that they shouldn't be talking during prayers.   Verse 2:238 is yet another very important reminder to the ever-erring human community of planet earth.

The hadith institution is constantly in the habit of constructing its own stories by picking up Verses of the Noble Quran.


Yes that makes sense. 

Unfortunately, the hadith does have that very stubborn habit.

Right brother. 

Everyone knows that during salat we must silently focus on our recitation.  Our salat contains the original words of the Noble Quran.  While uttering the words of Allah The Almighty no one chats or talks nor glances around.   Verse 2:238 (Al-Baqrah) which commands and reminds the human society of respect and obedience during prayers was revealed in Medinah.  By that time the Muslims were well acquainted with the practice of offering salat.  While only Allah knows best, I don't think that it was as late as the Medinah period when the Muslims realized that they shouldn't be talking during prayers.   Verse 2:238 is yet another very important reminder to the ever-erring human community of planet earth.

Certainly a very useful thread for our readers.  Alhumdulilah.

Furthermore, hadith says that the last portion of V.2:238 - "and stand before Allah , devoutly obedient."- taught the Muslims not to speak or chat while offering salat. 

"In the life-time of the Prophet we used to speak while praying, and one of us would tell his needs to his companions, till the verse, 'Guard strictly your prayers (2.238) was revealed. After that we were ordered to remain silent while praying."  Hadith No: 292 - Actions while Praying (Sahih Bukhari), narrated by Zaid bin Arqam.

I know that this portion of the Verse emphasizes not to be distracted during prayers, and also there are many more Verses that emphasize the same.  Allah Almighty has underscored the importance of complete concentration during prayers and the sublime status of prayers throughout His Noble Message.  It's not just one Verse that highlights this aspect but many Verses.

For example  ..  .. 

“Verily, prayer restrains (oneself) from shameful and unjust deeds...”  29:45

“Without doubt, in the remembrance of Allah do hearts find satisfaction.”  13:28

“Successful indeed are the believers, who are humble in their prayers.”  23:12

“And perform prayer… surely the good deeds remove the evils deeds.”   11:114
 
“Seek help in patience and prayer.”    2:153

And enjoin upon thy people worship, and be constant therein.   20:132

Surely, success does come to the believers, Who are humble in their Prayers, And who shun all that which is vain, .... (23:2-4)


The following Verse denounces people who stand up to pray heedlessly and disrespectfully:

"When they stand up to worship they perform it languidly and to be seen of men, and are mindful of Allah but little;"   4:142

From what I assume, the term "wusta" has been further extended in Urdu as 'connection' often pronounced as 'wasta.'  This ensues from the already broadened (and inaccurate) definition of "middle" where the word 'middle' is taken as a connecting source of any two things - persons, families, groups, institutions, countries, cities etc.   

Yes, right.
