Shirk in Salat
Shirk does not only mean to just assosiate someone or something with GOD but to serve or call upon any other entity other than GOD himself.
Shirk is the unforgiveable sin which every muslim should be worried about not committing but millions of so called muslims of today are committing it knowingly and unknowingly which does not matter even if one is unaware of it as we are all given equal oppertunity to research and decide our faith.
In the Quran GOD has strictly forbidden us from calling upon any entity other than himself and the dead do not listen in their grave.
وَمَا يَسْتَوِي الْأَحْيَاءُ وَلَا الْأَمْوَاتُ ۚ إِنَّ اللَّـهَ يُسْمِعُ مَن يَشَاءُ ۖ وَمَا أَنتَ بِمُسْمِعٍ مَّن فِي الْقُبُورِ
And not equal are the living and the dead. Indeed, Allah causes to hear whom He wills, but you cannot make hear those in the graves.
GOD has made it clear that the dead do not listen and calling upon or speaking to them is useless.
So called muslims calling themselves sunnis or shias call upon Muhammad in each Salat (Prayer) five times a day and without the call they consider their prayer useless and incomplete.
As soon as one goes into sitting position he/she start uttering shirk and baseless chants when the sitting postion in Salat is no where mentioned in the quran.
Tashahhud is the first to be recited in the sitting position while in Salat (Prayer).
التَّحِيَّاتُ لِلّٰهِ وَالصَّلَوَاتُ وَالطَّيِّبَاتُ، اَلسَّلَامُ عَلَيْكَ أَيُّهَا النَّبِيُّ وَرَحْمَةُ اللهِ وَبَرَكَاتُهُ، اَلسَّلَامُ عَلَيْنَا وَ عَلَىٰ عِبَادِ اللهِ الصَّالِحِينَ، أَشْهَدُ أَنْ لَا إِلَٰهَ إِلَّا اللهُ، وَأَشْهَدُ أَنَّ مُحَمَّدًا عَبْدُهُ وَرَسُوْلُهُ
Salutations to God and prayers and good deeds. Peace to you, you Prophet, and the mercy of God and his blessings. Peace be on us and on the righteous servants of God. I bear witness that there is no god but Allah, and I bear witness that Muhammad is His messenger.
The part containing call upon the dead is highlighted in bold as we all know Prophet Muhammad is dead and is burried in a grave in medina.
اَلسَّلَامُ عَلَيْكَ أَيُّهَا النَّبِيُّ Asalam o alika ayuhanabi is not just shirk but grammatically incorrect as it contains two you in it
عَلَيْكَ is the first you
أَيُّهَا is the second you.
The gramatical mistakes exists just because of inventors urge, restlessness and desire to shirk.
Quran in no way shape or form allows us to call upon the dead or any entity other than Allah himself.
2. Salwat Darood
Salawat in the salat is also an illogical act of chanting which makes no sense and highlights ones own desire to shirk and sanctify the idol of Muhammad resurrected within him.
ٱللَّٰهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلَىٰ مُحَمَّدٍ وَعَلَىٰ آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ كَمَا صَلَّيْتَ عَلَىٰ إِبْرَاهِيمَ وَعَلَىٰ آلِ إِبْرَاهِيمَ إِنَّكَ حَمِيدٌ مَجِيدٌ ٱللَّٰهُمَّ بَارِكْ عَلَىٰ مُحَمَّدٍ وَعَلَىٰ آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ كَمَا بَارَكْتَ عَلَىٰ إِبْرَاهِيمَ وَعَلَىٰ آلِ إِبْرَاهِيمَ إِنَّكَ حَمِيدٌ مَجِيدٌ
Allah, sanctify Muhammad and the family of Muhammad, as you have sanctified Ibrahim and the family of Ibrahim. Truly, You are Praiseworthy and Glorious. Allah, bless Muhammad and the family of Muhammad, as you have blessed Ibrahim and the family of Ibrahim. Truly, You are Praiseworthy and Glorious
In the salwat one is asking GOD to bless Muhammad and his family as GOD blessed Abraham and his descendants as if Muhammad was not a descenandant of Abraham thus making it illogical to utter such statements.
How can Muhammad not already be blessed when muhammad is descendant and from lineage of abraham through ishmael.
According to majority of so called muslims muhammad was the leader of all prophets and more blessed, praised than abraham then why there is a need to get him blessed like abraham who is at a much more lower level in comparison.
لَهُ دَعْوَةُ الْحَقِّ ۖ وَالَّذِينَ يَدْعُونَ مِن دُونِهِ لَا يَسْتَجِيبُونَ لَهُم بِشَيْءٍ إِلَّا كَبَاسِطِ كَفَّيْهِ إِلَى الْمَاءِ لِيَبْلُغَ فَاهُ وَمَا هُوَ بِبَالِغِهِ ۚ وَمَا دُعَاءُ الْكَافِرِينَ إِلَّا فِي ضَلَالٍ
To Him [alone] is the supplication of truth. And those they call upon besides Him do not respond to them with a thing, except as one who stretches his hands toward water [from afar, calling it] to reach his mouth, but it will not reach it [thus]. And the supplication of the disbelievers is not but in error [i.e. futility].
Some might argue calling upon muhammad is not shirk but Allah presents an example in quran in which Allah is telling us if a person stetch his hands towards water from a distance hoping the water to fly and reach inside his mouth is not possiblebut logically you have to make it to water and drink it and do the effort similarly calling upon muhammad who is dead cannot hear your supplication or call thus cannot respont just like water in the example.
The point of this article is not to offend anyones faith but to expose the falsehood so truth can prevail in the light of Quran.
