April 02, 2024, 07:27:22 pm Heba E. Husseyn: Details on Leila tul Qadr every Ramadan, links HERE.
November 01, 2023, 03:44:32 pm Zainab_M: Allahhuma ameen .. ameen.
November 01, 2023, 03:43:43 pm Ruhi_Rose: Yes .. making lots of dua everyday ..... watching those real life video clips, my face feels wet with tears all the time.  May ALLAH grant the best to these wonderful, brave & steadfast martyrs,  Ameen ya Allah.
November 01, 2023, 03:38:26 pm Zainab_M: Keep praying, praying a lot for Gaza. It's worse than a prison .. it's a concentration camp.  Children as young as 10 or 11 are having to care for their younger siblings ages 2, 3 and 4 becoz many have lost both parents.  It's a very, very, very tearful situation there.
October 26, 2023, 03:40:19 pm N. Truth Seeker: Don't forget to look up MV Blog Zainab's Lounge for our Gaza updates.
October 20, 2023, 04:24:44 pm Zainab_M: Right sister Heba.  Gaza hospital bombing has the fingerprints of Israel all over it.  For Israel this is no big crime.  They have done this and much worse many times in the past and intend to do the same and worse many more times in near future.
October 20, 2023, 04:20:20 pm Heba E. Husseyn: Catching Zionist lies isn't hard. Soon after Gaza hospital bombing killing and maiming hundreds, Israel was quick to accuse Islamic Jihad of a misfired rocket.  That didn't sound plausible because IJ does not have such sophisticated bombing devices.  Zionist lie was fully exposed when anglican archbishop of Jerusalem,Hosam Naoum,  said today that 3 or 4 days prior to boming Israel had warned Gaza hospital to evacuate. Yet CIA claims in its flawed analysis that the rocket did not come from Israel.  But conveniently does not explain how Israel could have known 4 days earlier that a "misfired" rocket from IJ was coming.  Yet on the basis of this flawed & bias analysis of CIA, Biden is comforting Israel he believes Israel didn't do that war crimes bombing.
July 29, 2023, 03:02:07 am Zainab_M: Yesterday was Ashura, Muharram 10, 1444 (July 27, 2023).  Read about this very tragic day and details of the world's greatest 7th century revolutionary: WHO WAS HUSSEIN.

Assalamu alaikum. I'm hoping for clarity about the number of times to pray Salah. Traditionally, it is unanimously agreed to be five. However, I stumbled on this person who claims it is three times a day (Fajr, Wusta, and Isha):

To be clear, this person is only in support for the Noble Qur'an and against Hadith. Also, I'm not sure what's going on in terms of the step by step ritual of Salah as we know it (this person is saying it does not exist). Then the person says the concept of Raka neither exists in Salah nor in the Qur'an:

My head is very confused and I'm not certain about what to believe. Surely the conventional mode of praying still aligns with the Noble Qur'an's principles? I would very much appreciate your help and wisdom on this topic inshallah.

Walaikum As-Salaam.   

For information and confirmation of 5 daily prayers directly from the Noble Quran please take a look at our post Salaah to be offered 5 times and not 3.

Actually, several sources claiming to be "progressive" Muslims adhering to the Quran only are doing quite the opposite.  They maybe different from the traditional hadith followers, yet they're not adhering to the Quran either, instead they are following their own whims and misinterpretations as suits their personal values and requirements.  Therefore, one needs to be careful of them as well.  E.g.  Claiming salah is thrice, fasting is 10 days not 30, Paradise is a state of mind not reality, that the Quran does not forbid alcohol, that Essa son of Virgin Maryam did not ascend but died on the cross are some of the falsehoods these so-called progressives have been spreading since long.   With the help of their own misinterpretations they deny matters that have been clearly asserted and confirmed in the Quran.  One such source is (or used to be) Free Minds.  Just ignore them.   In other words, abandoning the questionable hadith doesn't automatically make one a Quran alone follower.  Instead, we need to carefully assess the contents of their arguments to know where they're coming from.   They do tend to confuse people a lot.  I understand you.  You just need to be very discerning with these folks.

Another point I would like to mention is that if one tries to understand Arabic correctly, Salaat al Wusta may not necessarily mean the Asr prayer but it includes all prayers.  You will understand this better if you read our post on this topic Salat al Wusta.   However, Asr salaah has already been confirmed in another Verse quoted in the first link I've posted here on 5 daily salaah not 3.
