If specifics of Salah are missing from the Quran then the Quran is incomplete...no?
No. I do not believe that the specifics of Salah (or anything else) are "missing" from Quran - so I do not believe that The Quran is incomplete.
I do believe the specifics of Salah, as well as other things, were demonstrated by Prophet Muhammad (saww), the "Perfect Example/Excellent Pattern" as intended by Allah (33:21).
Is this a wording thing?
Do you believe the specifics of Salah are contained within the Quran?
No this isnt a wording thing - just clarity.
I do not believe the specifics of Salah are contained in The Quran, but just because something isnt in Quran doesn't mean it's "missing" from The Quran imo.
Thank you for your response Arif.
I would agree when it comes to things like my mothers lentil soup recipe or how to raise a pet giraffe.. but when it comes to matters of religion I don't understand how anyone finds this reasonable.
6:38 - We have neglected nothing in the Book (of Our decrees). Then unto their Lord they will be gathered.
6:114 - Shall I seek other than Allah for judge, when He it is Who hath revealed unto you (this) Scripture, fully explained?
12:111 - It is no invented story but a confirmation of the existing (Scripture) and a detailed explanation of everything, and a guidance and a mercy for folk who believe.
These verses are obviously not referring to everything in the all encompassing sense but in regards to religion. Salah are part of the religion.. I do not understand how the Quran can be regarded as complete if some aspects of our contact prayers are left out of it? I cannot think of any other situation where this logic would apply. If a primary text contains information but you need secondary texts to supplement and even add completely new information in order to understand the primary text, then the primary text cannot be complete... what am I missing here?
Also why would it be left out? It is not that much extra information, it could of easily been added in a page or two.
Yes .. the Qur'an instructs us to remember Allah regularly.
Does it need to have a step-by-step instructions on how to do that?
It seems not. I am quite confident that Muslims know how to perform salah
Is it because that while Muslims argue about "the mechanics" of their religion", they miss the whole point?
..that Allah SWT is looking for sincerity and not a rule junkie.
