Complete Salah (Prayer) based only on Sahih hadith impossible!

And remember Moses said to his people: “Allah commands that ye sacrifice a heifer.” They said: “Makest thou a laughing-stock of us?” He said: “Allah save me from being an ignorant (fool)!” They said: “Beseech on our behalf Thy Lord to make plain to us what (heifer) it is!” He said; “He says: The heifer should be neither too old nor too young, but of middling age. Now do what ye are commanded!” They said: “Beseech on our behalf Thy Lord to make plain to us Her colour.” He said: “He says: A fawn-coloured heifer, pure and rich in tone, the admiration of beholders!” They said: “Beseech on our behalf Thy Lord to make plain to us what she is: To us are all heifers alike: We wish indeed for guidance, if Allah wills.” He said: “He says: A heifer not trained to till the soil or water the fields; sound and without blemish.” They said: “Now hast thou brought the truth.” Then they offered her in sacrifice, but not with good-will. Remember ye slew a man and fell into a dispute among yourselves as to the crime: But Allah was to bring forth what ye did hide. So We said: “Strike the (body) with a piece of the (heifer).” Thus Allah brings the dead to life and shows you His Signs: Perchance ye may understand.(Holy Qur’an 2:67-73)One of the most contentions issues among Muslims more often than not has to do with the way the Blessed Messenger (saw) did his prayers.

This video below  is well worth the listen.  It is done by a brother who follows the Hanafi school of jurisprudence with in the Sunni sect of Islam.

What he is explaining is that it is impossible to find a ‘Sahih’ hadith for every single act that is done in the prayer.  Which is something that I have come to a conclusion about a long time ago. He than argues this is why for some Muslims in the Sunni sect they decide to follow a school of jurisprudence.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jbrj-BvAF8gI quoted the above verses from the glorious Holy Qur’an because I believe it is a reflection of what we have become today in the Muslim community.

People will dispute about minute details concerning the prayer, when Allah asked us to establish the prayer.
