Salamun Alykum,

Would you please clarify me about Salat of Zachariah which is presented in Quran (3:39)?

Rakibur Rahman Shaan


Salaam Brother Rakib,

The word Salat has the same meaning wherever, it appears in the Quran, i.e. connection, link, follow, approach, establishing relation, communication and relationship, which I have explained in my numerous articles on Salat.

The verse before 3:39, i.e. 3:38 is making it clear that Zachariah (pbuh) was making supplication (دَعَا) to have children (ذُرِّيَّةً) and the next verse in question 3:39 establishes connection between Zachariah and the angel (الْمَلآئِكَةُ) who approaches Zachariah “قَائِمٌ يُصَلِّي” to give him good news from God.

However, our nonsense scholars destroyed the actual statement of this verse 3:39 and brought their pagan worship Namaz in the fake translation of this verse 3:39.
