Dec 10 '17 at 0:31 comment added Sola Gratia @Geremia Exactly. The Qur'an despises the Triune God of the Bible. And identifying with the God of Abraham Isaac and Jacob is not the same as it being that same God. Especially if the Qur'an explicitly and clearly objects to the Christian God and doctrines which are dogmatically true concerning Him.
Mar 24 '17 at 11:27 comment added Casanova @TheIronKnuckle I just want to say that Muslims do not worship the Kaaba or its surroundings nor do they consider that Allah is inside or anything like that.It is simply the qibla, the direction in which Muslims face to pray.This is also considered as a symbol of unity, since all Muslims ( wherever they are ) face the same direction when praying. So the whole thing is not a form of idolatry. Thank you.
Feb 7 '17 at 5:13 comment added Geremia @TheIronKnuckle Even supposing Christians and Muslims believe in the same God (which they do not, despite how the fallible and non-dogmatic Vatican II documents might be (mis-)interpreted), still, a Catholic cannot offer false worship to the Catholic God, and one can only offer true worship to the true God within the Catholic Church.
Feb 7 '17 at 4:27 comment added TheIronKnuckle @Geremia it mentions that we are worshipping the same God and that the path of salvation includes muslims. It doesn't use the arabicised word "Allah" when the Anglo "God" will suffice and be more familiar.
Feb 7 '17 at 4:04 comment added Geremia @JamesKingsbery Yes. And the Divine Office can be recited here.
Feb 7 '17 at 4:03 comment added Geremia @TheIronKnuckle Lumen Gentium mentions Allah?

Feb 6 '17 at 21:37 comment added James Kingsbery While we worship the same God (arguably, let's leave it aside), Catholics have a form of prayer, the Divine Office, that is a rough parallel of the Salat (said several time daily at certain times). I would recommend considering praying the Divine Office if you're looking for something like that.

Feb 6 '17 at 17:18 comment added TheIronKnuckle @KorvinStarmast my understanding is that we can attend, but we should not participate. Eg we should not stand when they stand, kneel when they kneel, or join in singing the songs

Feb 6 '17 at 13:57 comment added Andrew Leach It would probably be helpful to include the text you're asking about. Well, I would find it helpful, anyway. (If you're going to pray it in Arabic, then some sort of translation would be good, too.)
Feb 6 '17 at 13:13 comment added KorvinStarmast @TheIronKnuckle All that we may not do is receive communion. We are not banned from attending, for example, a Lutheran or Episcopalean Church and attending a wedding celebration from start to finish. The question of form is relevant, yes, I guess my suggestion was that form (by itself) is an insufficient basis for considering what crosses the line. This is a hard question.
Feb 6 '17 at 13:11 comment added TheIronKnuckle @KorvinStarmast what you say is true, but i think questions of form are still relevant. There's a principle in catholicism that says we shouldn't participate in protestant liturgies because they are defective in both form and content. It could apply in this case too
Feb 6 '17 at 13:00 comment added KorvinStarmast Prayer is a personal communication between you and God. When you are praying the salat, what is in your heart? A prayer to God as you believe in him (as a Catholic, that's the Trinity) or a prayer to God who is not the Trinity? Only your heart knows the truth of that. The truth of that would also inform any answer, per curiosdannii's point. Your question asks about form when prayer is about far more than form.

Feb 6 '17 at 12:22 comment added TheIronKnuckle The current official Catholic position (since Vatican 2) is that they are the same God. See dogmatic constitution Lumen Gentium and CCC841
Feb 6 '17 at 12:06 comment added curiousdannii What you believe is irrelevant if you're asking for the Catholic position ;)
Feb 6 '17 at 12:05 comment added TheIronKnuckle I believe they're the same God (Otherwise I wouldn't be asking this question at all)
Feb 6 '17 at 12:02 comment added curiousdannii Are you talking about praying salat to the Christian god or the Islamic god?
Feb 6 '17 at 11:59 comment added TheIronKnuckle What about if you pray the Salat in a church by yourself towards the tabernacle? You're not praying with other muslims in that case
Feb 6 '17 at 11:50 comment added curiousdannii Catholics could not join in prayer with Muslims because of the fundamental incompatibility of their religions: the divinity of Jesus and his sacrificial death on the cross and resurrection to new life.
