    Salat in the Quran ṣalāt – duty Introductory comments The Traditionalist’s position, in summary, is that his non-Qur’anic literature tells him that the value for ṣalāt is equal to x (a certain number of daily rituals, at least five but sometimes more) and that since he does not find x in the Qur’an, he (and we) should understand that the Qur’an requires his non-Qur’anic literature to be understood or implemented. One might assume, given the Traditionalist’s high dudgeon and energetic presentation, that there exists a single statement in his supposedly reliable non-Qur’anic literature where the form and content of the complete ritual he calls ṣalāt is clearly set out. But one would be mistaken. He has constructed a ritual out of little pieces carved out of the corpus of the ḥadīth literature and claimed the result to be of divine origin. Nowhere does any single ḥadīth which he claims to be reliable contain a full explanation of the ritual he claims to be the central – if not the defining – characteristic of his religion.

    "The majority of strikes, according to the analysis, have instead been in areas held by other groups opposed to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, which include al Qaeda offshoots but also fighters backed by Washington and its allies." Is that sentence difficult for you to comprehend or something? ISIS/AQ/'Allies' are all in the same boat.

    Hey maqsur,

    Would you mind pledging for the Rand Paul moneybomb?( We're encouraging people to pledge even if they can only afford $5. The number of pledges will help build momentum, plus one member has even promised to donate $1 for every pledge. Help us reach our goal of 500 pledges by tomorrow night; I'd appreciate it.
