Daytime to organize communication

[Q. 17:78] “Organise/setup/establish/ (aqim أَقِمِ) the close communication/commitment (al/s-solaa’t ٱلصَّلَوٰةَ) as you have (lidu’liki لِدُلُوكِ) the sun (al/s-shamsi ٱلشَّمْسِ until (ila إِلَىٰ) the twilight (gasaki غَسَقِ) of the night (al-lyl-I ٱلَّيْلِ) and (wa وَ) reading (qura’nan قُرْءَانَ) of the dawn (al-fajr-I ٱلْفَجْرِ ۖ). Surely (inna إِنَّ), reading (qura’nan قُرْءَانَ) of the dawn (al-fajr-i قُرْءَانَ ) was recommended (ka’na mashhudan كَانَ مَشْهُودًا)”.

أَقِمِ ٱلصَّلَوٰةَ لِدُلُوكِ ٱلشَّمْسِ إِلَىٰ غَسَقِ ٱلَّيْلِ وَقُرْءَانَ ٱلْفَجْرِ ۖ إِنَّ قُرْءَانَ ٱلْفَجْرِ كَانَ مَشْهُودًا

[Q. 11: 114] “And organise/setup/establish (wa-aqim وَأَقِمِ) the close communication/commitment (al/s-solaa’t ٱلصَّلَوٰةَ) at the end-stage (torafi’ طَرَفَىِ) of the day (al/n-nahari ٱلنَّهَارِ) and (wa وَ) creeping to (julafan-min زُلَفًا مِّنَ) the night (al-lyl-i ٱلَّيْلِ ۚ). Surely (inna إِنَّ), good deeds (al-‘hasanaati ٱلْحَسَنَـٰتِ) eliminate (yuz-hib-na يُذْهِبْنَ) bad deeds (al/s-sayyi’aati ٱلسَّيِّـَٔاتِ ۚ); that (dha’lika ذَٰلِكَ) is a remembrance (zik’raa) for those who remember (liz-za’kiriin لِلذَّٰكِرِينَ)”.

وَأَقِمِ ٱلصَّلَوٰةَ طَرَفَىِ ٱلنَّهَارِ وَزُلَفًا مِّنَ ٱلَّيْلِ ۚ إِنَّ ٱلْحَسَنَـٰتِ يُذْهِبْنَ ٱلسَّيِّـَٔاتِ ۚ ذَٰلِكَ ذِكْرَىٰ لِلذَّٰكِرِينَ

Night time to ponder on the Quran to prepare for the day

[Q. 17:79] “And from (wa min وَمِنَ) the night (al-lyle ٱلَّيْلِ ) stay awake (fatahajjat فَتَهَجَّدْ) with IT (bihi بِهِ) as additional (na’filata نَافِلَةً) for you (laka لَّكَ); perhaps your Lord will raise you to a praised station.”

وَمِنَ ٱلَّيْلِ فَتَهَجَّدْ بِهِۦ نَافِلَةً لَّكَ عَسَىٰٓ أَن يَبْعَثَكَ رَبُّكَ مَقَامًا مَّحْمُودًا

[Note: Q. 17:78 and 17:82 suggests that the term Q. 17:79 — with IT (bihi بِهِ) – is about the Quran. Notably, the solaa’t is not mentioned in Q. 17:79 fallaciously to extrapolate a preconceived notion of prayer.]
