Examining the Proof of 5 Solats in the Quran
1)The prescribed times of solat is Q11:114"Establish salata at the ends of the day and at the early night." This means that we solat at sunrise, sunset , and early night ie 3 times a day.
2)The Hadith Muslims say Q17:78 prescribes the Zuhur solat. Lets exanine it.
Q17:78"Establish "salata" at /from the decline of the sun (from its meridian), UNTILL the dark night."
2.1) This verse is not a "time of solat" verse but a "duration of the sunset solat" because of the word UNTILL and the word "declining of the sun"
2.2)The word "declining of the sun" means sunset.
It can only mean Zuhur or Mid Day if you added to it in brackets (from its meridian). But the words"(from its meridian)" is not Allah's words. Therefore it should never be included to change the meaning of Allah's verse to include Zuhur as a solat. Addaing to the word of Allah is kufur (falsehood).
2.3) The word "salata" means "one /singular solat", and one solat before the dark night is the sunset solat or Magrib that is suitable for the word "declining of the sun". It Zuhur, Asar and Magrib is included in the verse then Allah would have said "salawata" the plural of solat.Therefore there is no Zuhur solat in this verse.
3)The Hadith Muslims say Asar solat is the "middle solat" in Q2:238"Attend constantly to the prayers and to the middle prayer and stand up truely obedient to Allah."
But Asar as a "middle" solat can only be proven if Zuhur solat was proven to exist in the Quran otherwise the sunset solat or Magrib solat is the "middle" or "Wusta" solat.
Therefore there is no Asar solat in this verse of the Quran.
4)The hadith Muslims say that Q30:17-18 "Therefore glory be to Allah when you anter the times of the evening and when you enter into the times of the morning. And to him belongs praise in the heavens and the earth, and at nightfall and at mid-day." implys Fajar,Magrib,Zuhur and Asar.
But there is no word "salata" in the verse to proof that what allah implys is the solat. The words used is "subhana" and "hamdu" which is a tasbih or praising of Allah with the words "subhanallah' and "Alhamdullillah". Thus verse does not prescribe the solat.
Therefore there is no Zuhur and Asar solat in this verse.
5)The hadith Muslims say that Q50:39-40 "So be patient over what we say and exalt Allah with praise of your Lord before the rising sun and before its setting. And in part of the night, exalt him and after prostration.", implies the solat of Fajar,Zuhur,Asar Magrib and Isha.
Again this verse does not have the word "salata". The word used is "sabbih" and "hamdi" which is the tasbih or zikir by saying "Subhannallah" and "Alhamdullillah. Thus verse does not prescribe the solat as there is no word "salata" in it.
Therefore there is no Zuhur anbd Asar solat.
Therefore. there is no 5 solats in the Quran. There are only 3 solat a day in the Quran and only in one verse Q11:114 that prescribes solat times explisitly without any doubt and without any interpretation or interpolation using non Allah or Ulama's words in brackets.
Wa billahi taufic. Wa salamulaikum waramatullahi wabarakatu. May Allah invite us to His true Quran only Islam without any corruption from any other source.
