Salah or Namaz: A Paragon of “Professional” Conduct
[Quote – 322]

Quote-Unquote: Dr. Pasha on Islam,
Muslims and the World

www.IslamicSolutions.Com


“Amateurs do things however they please: randomly; haphazardly; by the seat of their pants, as they say.

Professionals do things the right way.

There is consistency and predictability in the work of professionals – because professionals follow routine and process.

Civilized societies are societies of laws, they say, and not of men.

That means the more a civilization progresses, the more bound and guided it becomes by laws, rules and procedures, and the less it runs based on the whim and convenience of individuals.

We as Muslims should aim at 100 percent professionalism. That means we must follow a certain process and set of procedures in everything we do.

Our work must always be consistent and predictable and perfect.

And it must always be the best that it can possibly be.

Of course, all this within the means, resources and skills God has given us.

But then, as Muslims, it is also our duty to do everything in our power to improve our skills and increase of our means and resources.

I can’t think of a more perfect example of consistency and predictability in Islam — or anywhere else — than Salah or Namaz.

That itself is proof, right there, that this Namaz or Salah is not of human design but purely and entirely of divine origin.

The same Takbir, the same recitation from the Qur’an, the same Rukoo’, the same Sajdah, the same Jalsah, the same Tashahhud, and so on and so on, in every Namaz or Salah.

But what makes it all the more of a miracle is not just how perfect it is in every way, but how it was born that way from Day One – 1400 years ago on this earth.

Nothing changed. Nothing morphed.

How do you explain something like that in purely human terms?

If people saw Muslims doing Salah or Namaz and they analyzed and tried to understand what Muslims were doing, that alone would be enough to make someone a Muslim, no matter what background they may come from.

That is how mind-bogglingly consistent, predictable and perfect the routine of the Salah or Namaz is in every respect – every time and everywhere.” (Dr. Pasha)
