June 11, 2016, 06:32:29 am Ruhi_Rose: I came across a pinterest page on the Quran which says "The Quran is the central religious text of Islam."  Let me put it this way: Quran is the ONLYText of Islam. If u r following the Quran, u don't need anything else.

Aw!  That's exactly what my husband does .. offers "sunnah" as nafl with the niyyat requesting Allah to accept that as adhering to the practice of the Prophet (pbuh) if he really said that many rakats as optional salat, otherwise to accept them simply as extra worship.

To put it simply, the way I see it, Allah has instructed us to offer 5 salaats daily.  This means, we are to keep aside that much time for him everyday at specific hours.  If we miss those specific hours, the best we can do to catch up on our obligation it is to spend that much of our time with Allah afterwards. If we don't do this either, then imagine how much of our daily time which Allah is entitled to receive will be wasted.  Hence, after death, we go to the next world with a poorer record of our accounts, making it harder for us to answer His questions on the Day of Resurrection.

EXACTLY said my Sis !!  This is about the most accurate summary highlighting the importance of Qaza salat.  We must try not to miss any of our salats.  But even if we sometimes do, our sense of commitment should be just as firm creating the desire and urgency to fulfill our pending obligation at the next and quickest possible time.

Absolutely, that's what is vital - a strong sense of commitment towards this most important Duty.

...   I always offer sunnah rakats with the niyyat of nafl.  The reason is simple.  To be honest, we cannot be sure if the number of sunnah rakats haven't been manipulated by the hadith.  Secondly, even if the count for "sunnah" rakats is correct, the Prophet (pbuh) during his lifetime must have definitely offered that as extra or nafl.  I feel absolutely sure the Prophet (pbuh) would NEVER offer them by uttering the word "sunnah."  There was no such thing as 'sunnah' during his time. The Prophet (pbuh) did not refer to his daily routine as 'sunnah.'  He directed everyone's attention only to the Quran because he borrowed his rules from the Quran.  Using the term 'sunnah' would amount to separating the Prophet's life from the Quran as two different things, which would be totally wrong and negate the purpose of the Message of Allah.  Needless to say, the Prophet (pbuh) would never ever do that.  The Prophet's (pbuh) responsibility was to demonstrate the Quran in practice, NOT Bukhari's worthless & ludicrous rules.

Plainly put, what these traditionalists today call 'sunnah' rakat is actually nafl or extra rakat.  That's it.

Was discussing this topic during the weekend with my cousin's wife who is a bit of a Hadithist.  She says that according to the same argument, how do you know if the number of fard rakats haven't been changed?   Are the fard rakats offered by us today really the same in number for all 5 prayers as offered by the Prophet (pbuh)?

I said that as far as I know, very likely the fard rakats are the same as I haven't come across any extra-Quranic contents wrangling on the number of fard rakats.  However, there might still be a small chance that it has been changed (or changed a little bit) by the Hadith.  So let's take a realistic look at this aspect.  The Prophet (pbuh) fixed a particular number of rakats for each of the 5 daily prayers.  Therefore if we are sure that those numbers have been lost, we would simply have to pick our own numbers for fard rakats and accordingly offer that many fard rakats each day.  Thus we might as well stick to the number of fard rakats fixed by tradition.  That really doesn't matter and nor can we do anything at this point.  If the original numbers are lost, then either we fix new numbers on our own or continue with the numbers given by others earlier.  The important thing is to continue offering our salat as stated and instructed in the Quran.  After all, the Quran does not mention the number of rakats, NOT because Allah wants us to follow the hadith but because the number of rakats can be decided at one's own disposition, as did the Prophet (pbuh).


And yes, the Noble Quran also mentions the method of salat which the Hadithists still don't know.  Does the Quran contain the procedure of salat?  Yes it does.

MashAllah sister, your answer to that cousin's wife was very apt and fitting.  I would have said exactly the same. 

There's something which people keep forgetting and it's important to reiterate.  The term "sunnah" which has been used in the Quran is in a completely different context from what it alludes to in clerical circles.  In the Quran "sunnah" refers to the lifestyles of all Prophets who demonstrated obedience to the commandments of Allah as highlighted in all HIS original Messages.  Their obedience to the commandments of Allah has been confirmed by Him in the Quran, His Final Message.  This aspect is known as "sunnah" in the Quran.  In the Quran the term "sunnah" NEVER refers to any traditional stories attributed to any Prophet.

Interesting and coherent, I must say.  I'll give every bit of thought to that.

Btw, in the hadith literature the term Qaza also carries an altogether different meaning.  I'll post that on the hadith board, InshAllah.
