Distinguishing As-Salaat because of its distinguishable qualification in the 'Ibaadah

Also under this topic is the saying of Allah (SWT),

Recite what is sent to you of the Scripture by revelation (i.e. the Qur'an), and establish As-Salaat. [Al-'Ankaboot:45];

and His (AWJ) saying,

And those who hold fast by the Scripture and establish As-Salaat. [Al-A'raaf:170]

The recitation of the Scripture is: following it and implementing it, as Ibn Mas'ood has said concerning the saying of Allah (SWT),

Those to who m We have given the Scripture recite It as It should be recited, [Al-Baqarah:121], he said, "They allow its allowable, they forbid its prohibitions, they believe in its unclear allegorical pasages, and they implement its firm (verses)."

Therefore, following the Scripture comprises As-Salat and others. However, He (SWT) specifically mentioned it because of its distinguishable qualification.
