What is the general meaning of صلاة (Salat) referred in the Quran? Please provide verses that mentions the definition/description of Salat, also the rites of the ritual if it was to be treated as such.
I found multiple suras that contain the word al-salat (الصَّلَاةَ). For example this one
الَّذِينَ يُؤْمِنُونَ بِالْغَيْبِ وَيُقِيمُونَ الصَّلَاةَ وَمِمَّا رَزَقْنَاهُمْ يُنفِقُونَ
Who believe in the unseen, establish prayer, and spend out of what We have provided for them,
From the translation it means prayer. Is it the general meaning that you seek?
Regarding the description, it appears to me that in Quran the description of salat scatters around the whole book. There is mention of Zakah, clear of intoxication, shortening the salat, importance of the middle prayer, prostration, ablution, call for prayer and many others.
