True: salat, namaz and Al-Fatiha surat/surah

Reader comment on item: Advice to Non-Muslim Women against Marrying Muslim Men
in response to reader comment: A very concerned reader: Which Arabic word would Allah accept Maaliki or Maliki in Surat al-Fatiha?

Dear Dhimmi No More,
Absolutely true and so spot on. Yes, in other languages it's said salat (for instance, among Muslims established in Europe) and yes, namaz is Persian-rooted.

The ignorance runs deep. That's why I love your posts.

Thanks a lot for posting this. For sure, I'll be checking what you mention in here.

Isn't it funny that the most repeated surah throughout all the prayers is completely mixed-up depending on the nationality of the believers who think are repeating their God's word, which no one is allowed to touch and it was written "for all the times"?

Thanks a lot again. Looking forward for more info like this one!
