: Time Bound Protocol of Servitude and Allegiance: The Key to the door of success


Sociality is the fundamental characteristic-dimension of the created realm, matter and life both. However, the Man needs to be given training and skills required for functioning successfully in the society. The par excellent social activity is the socialization of the Subject with the Lord-King-Sovereign. The affectionate Sovereign is he who affords opportunities to his subjects to be in his presence occasionally for sometime for paying homage and seeking blessings of him. The subjects gain strength, feel of security and confidence by being in the House of the Sovereign. It becomes subject's pride.

We as social beings living in societies and states are well aware of the protocols of Subject-Lord contact. Timings are determined by the Lord. The Subject is required to follow the prescribed dress code and manners of speech and gestures while in the premises of Lord.

Universe is the State of the Sustainer Lord of all the created realm and we are the resident subjects of it. The Sustainer Lord, Allah the Exalted has prescribed and made it mandatory for us to contact Him everyday at intervals. This is called in Arabic: : The time bound Protocol of Servitude and Allegiance.

: The time bound Protocol of Servitude and Allegiance is the fundamental protocol for all living beings in the created realm which is prescribed in the Constitution: Universal Code of Conduct-:  Voluntary submission to the discipline establishing state of peace, security, tranquility and dynamic balance for all. It is the sublime protocol of interaction-social conduct within the created realm. Read it carefully and critically since it is the first manifestation of our claim of belief and a guarantee of success and fruitfulness of belief:


We will study and discuss it confining ourselves within the Grand Qur'aan.

2. The point in time in human history when was prescribed and ordered to be institutionalized.

3. Later generations in timeline discarded it. It was re-institutionalized by the elevated Universal Messenger.

4. : It is a prerequisite for recognition as brother in Islam

5. It is a time bound protocol. Number and the appointed timings for its performance during a day

6. Preparatory protocols for its performance; and Prohibition: when not to perform it.

7. : It is Gesture-speech, highest communicative dynamism: Sublime submission of servitude and allegiance;

8. Be always mindful for performing As-Salaat; and just peep in the Hell-Prison to listen its dwellers.


1. Basic perception and meanings infolded in its Root and

: It is derived from Root: ص ل و. Basic perception infolded is to praise and magnify; express commendation, or wish blessings upon the one who is revered; or to appreciate someone. Ibn Faris [died 1005] in his classical Lexicon مقاييس اللغة had quoted a verse of a poem of pre-Qur'aan period to highlight one aspect of this Root regards invoking blessings:

وقابَلَها الرِّيحُ في دَنِّها    وصلَّى على دَنِّها وارتَسم

Learned Professor Toshihiko Izutsu in his book: "God and Man in the Qur'aan" quoted it in his study on the concept of this Root and term : [Quote]

About the other aspect of the Root in physical realm; the Lane's Lexicon has this entry:

صَلاً  The middle of the back of a human being and of any quadruped: (M, K:) and, (K,) or as some say, (M,) [app. in a beast,] the part that slopes down from the hips, or haunches: or the space intervening between the جَاعِرَة [app. meaning the hinder projection of the haunch or rump of a beast] and the tail: (M, K:) or the part on the right and left of the tail; (S, M, K;) the two together being called [the] صَلَوَانِ,

And المُصَلَِّى signifies, as applied to a horse, The one that follows next after the foremost [at the goal] (S, M, Mgh, Msb) in a race: (Mgh, Msb:) because his head is next to the part called صَلاً, (Lh, S, M, Msb,) or next to the صَلَوَانِ, (Mgh,) of the foremost. [Unquote]

The fact about the words of Arabic is that; whatever be its pattern-mould-structuring frame, it will retain the original perception infolded in the Root with additional meanings and connotation, shade and colour added by the peculiar pattern and relational aspect of the semantic field where it is used. Thereby, in case the happening, phenomenon and an act does not mirror the perception infolded in its Root; it will not be: .

The experts suggest that one of the criteria a book has to meet to earn title of a great book is that: "The book has to speak from an important original setting". We quoted the earlier works in token of recognition and appreciation of their scholarly works. However, fact remains that Grand Qur'aan is the unique Book. It make us feel as if we are living in Mecca of early 7th century but simultaneously keeping us in and beyond 21st century. Let us watch a group of people of Mecca of 7th AD as to what they have been performing under thought and perception of  :

This picturesque portray of the manner of :that was being performed by one segment of the people identified and referred as "People without the Book of Allah" suffices to prove that despite they having become idol worshippers were still holding to the concept of:  . [Be mindful of your surroundings; some are bringing in music within the Mosques under guise of respectful gestures. Many people these days can neither mourn nor can revere and pay homage without assistance of background "music"]


2. The point in time in human history when: was prescribed and ordered to be institutionalized.

The fact of the matter is that : the Time Bound Protocol of Servitude and allegiance for the Creator Lord was prescribed and its practice is in vogue ever since the Father of Muslims in timeline: the Chosen Friend and the Messenger of Allah the Exalted, revered Iebra'heim علیہ السلام along with his son Iesma'eile [علیہ السلام]  had built the House of Allah the Exalted in the protected city Mecca.

This House of Allah the Exalted was built in a small land area known and called at that point in time as Becca:

We revert back to the point in time when masonry work was in progress on the House:

This is the ushering in of a new era in human history. The House of Allah the Exalted, the Beacon of Guidance is now in place on the Earth to facilitate people to escort their selves towards their Sustainer Lord.

It is important to note that on construction of the House they both requested: "You cause the demonstration for us". This Request Verb is doubly transitive signifying seeing with eyes a physical demonstration. : It is a Possessive Phrase with First definite Noun as second object of Verb. Basic perception infolded in its Root "ن س ك" is of physical act of washing and cleansing a thing/clothes that results in improving its features/look and worth. It refers to acts with which people are accustomed, and its occurrence is recurring. It is used to refer to a point/location/spot about which people are accustomed by frequent visits. They requested for the demonstration of "rites": prescribed pattern of observance and performance of formal acts: the observance of actions or procedures in a set, ordered, and ceremonial way.

It is thus evident that all associations with the House of Allah the Exalted are in fact physical in nature. By watching physical demonstrations; and by imitating and repeating it one gets accustomed-internalize since it becomes concern of non-declarative memory.

This House, rectangular in shape, along with uncovered elongated protuberated area with a half shape moon curved wall rendering its surrounding area as elliptically spherical, is called: . The people are face to face to it while present around it for performing Its all around space where Iebra'heim علیہ السلام had stood while raising the structure was declared for adoption as : a location where a man stands for: ; and the whole area collectively is referred by the Locative Noun : gathering places where people prostrate laying their forehead on ground. Prostration expresses non-verbally the willful and affectionate surrender of one's will and self governing liberty at the mercy of the Will of the Sustainer Lord, Allah the Exalted**.

Perusal of history in the Grand Qur'aan about all the nations and the Elevated Messengers of Allah the Exalted; who were in time and space prior to Iebra'heim alai'his'slaam and the raising of the House of Allah the Exalted, will reveal that the concept of is not mentioned. Those elevated Messengers of Allah the Exalted did not ask their respective nations to observe, adhere and institutionalize . We find in the Qur'aan that once the House of Allah the Exalted is placed on ground in a land eventually becoming part of the City of Mecca, the institutionalization of: is mandatory for all believers accepting the message conveyed by the elevated Messengers sent after Iebra'heim alai'his'slaam; and coming into existence of: in Mecca.

Historical account in Qur'aan conspicuously reveals that: : the Time Bound Protocol of Servitude and allegiance for the Creator Lord was prescribed and its practice is in vogue ever since the Father of Muslims in timeline: the Chosen Friend and the Messenger of Allah the Exalted, revered Iebra'heim علیہ السلام along with his son Iesma'eile [علیہ السلام] had built the House of Allah the Exalted in the protected city Mecca. Thereat, it was institutionalized and declared a permanent Institution for all the Muslims irrespective of time and space, when he had prayed:

This point in time onwards; Institution of: was Mandatory Clause of the Covenant obtained and prescribed for the lineage of the Second Son of Iebra'heim alai'his'slaam:

On revelation of Grand Qur'aan they are reminded to recall their Covenant and fulfill the Promise to accept this Revelation and the elevated Messenger; and conduct their selves in the following manner which was also an Article of the Covenant:


: This Verbal Sentence, with Imperative Verb, Subject Pronoun second person plural referring Posterity of Iesraa'eel, and the Object of Verb, was an Article of the Covenant. This Verbal sentence occurs eight times in Grand Qur'aan in (1)2:43(2)2:83(3)2:110(4)4:77(5)10:87(6)24:56(7)30:31(8)73:20=8. And compliance of this injunction is the characteristic trait of:   people who endeavour for ultimate success by remaining mindful and cautious and avoiding unrestrained conduct in reverence and fear of Allah the Exalted. It is stated about them:

They steadfastly maintain the Institution of As-sa'laat: Time Bound Protocol of Servitude and allegiance;

This Verbal sentence occurs six times in Qur'aan in  (1)2:03(2)5:55(3)8:03(4)9:71(5)27:03(6)31:04=6.

Ever since the construction of the House of Allah the Exalted on the Earth and institutionalization of: by the Father of Muslims and the exalted Messenger Iebra'heim alai'his'slaam it was maintained in the time line:


3. Later generations in timeline discarded it. It was re-institutionalized by the Universal Messenger.

The majority of later generations in timeline went astray:


Grand Qur'aan has highlighted a dismal state of affairs obtaining in the world before its revelation. Institution of As-sa'laat: Time Bound Protocol of Servitude and allegiance had been abandoned and people were plunged in the pursuit of selfish desires, lusts and conjectural fascinating myths. Civilizations were on the verge of decay. The majority of the posterity of both the sons of the Friend of Allah the Exalted, Iebra'heim علیہ السلام were about to fall into the pit of fire. They were about to be doomed. This was the point in time for Allah the Exalted to requite the service rendered by the elevated Messengers Iebra'heim علیہ السلام and Iesma'eile [علیہ السلام]  by building His House on the Earth. This was the point in time to meet their prayer which they had made on building The House:

Iebra'heim علیہ السلام had further requested:

: It is Active Participle: Definite as first noun of construct: Possessive Phrase; masculine; singular; accusative. It signifies a person who establishes firmly: he who institutionalizes. He had requested to assign a similar role in his progeny. The last and universal Messenger Muhammad Sal'lallaa'hoalaih'wa'salam who had always been a staunch monotheist and practicing Muslim revived the institution of : Time Bound Protocol of servitude and allegiance on assignment of responsibility of the Universal Messenger.

It is a general informative statement. This is the history and information about the composition of  population of Mecca in times immediately before assigning responsibility as Messenger to the Last and Accomplisher of the chain of the Chosen and Elevated Persons, signified by Arabic Possessive Phrase-: "The Last and the Accomplisher of the company of the Chosen and Elevated Persons".: It is the definite Active Participle of Form-IV signifying those already staunch Believers. They were the beneficiaries who were obliged when one of them was appointed-declared as the elevated Messenger of Allah the Exalted.

The elided adjective for: -a messenger is described as he is one of -the staunch Monotheist Believers even before the revelation of Qur'aan. The adjectival description of indefinite object of verb: [a messenger] is elided since it was evidently understood by the listeners at that point in time by the Phrase: . It denotes both who were already the Staunch Believers and others who became believers from amongst the polytheists, Jews, and Christians. These Christian still had Muslims amongst them immediately before the revelation of Grand Qur'aan. [Qur'aan: The most authentic  best biography of Muhammad Sal'lallaa'hoalaih'wa'salam]


 Henceforth: was given the status of foremost observable-tangible demonstration of one's belief in Allah the Exalted. The word: singular of plural:  portrays the man who is affectionately a staunch believer. However, it depicts a general idea and perception about the man. What type of a staunch and affectionate monotheistic believer he has always been in his entire life? He was advised to portray it for us who were to see and perceive/know him through the Verbal Passages of Qur'aan in these words:

"My life and my death" includes all the moments from taking birth-joining the community of beings and parting away from the association of beings. He has said that all these moments of him are solely and exclusively for Allah the Exalted. He is telling us; "Muhammad [Sal'lallaa'hoalaih'wa'salam] is solely and exclusively at service for Allah the Exalted". This is the reflection of absolute sincerity. Reciprocally, Allah the Exalted acknowledges this fact by taking this oath;

O you the Messenger [Sal'lallaa'hoalaih'wa'salam]; swearing is of your age of life. [Refer 15:73]   [ع م ر is the period/duration of time when life breathes; first to the last breath]

Let us pay our respects and salutations and show obeisance to him in a humble and respectful manner. This will help us to elevate our selves; and will place us amongst those who recognize and acknowledge the honour bestowed by Allah the Exalted on him. It will prove us distinguished and unlike the psyche of Iblees who refused to show obeisance to Adam alai'his'slaam whom Allah the Exalted granted distinction and honour over the Angels and the Jinn species.
