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.
