AbuJarir

Pro

Bismillah Irahman Iraheem, The Prophet(SAAWS) said "Pray as you've seen me pray." And I am under the opinion that Hanbali Salat is the best and placing the hands on the chest right over left is the best. Even Muwatta Imam Malik, Sahih Bukhari, and Sunan Abu Dawood narrates this about the Prophet(SAAWS).

Con

Thank you, AbuJarir, for instigating this debate.

The opponent does not fulfill the BoP.


"Bismillah Irahman Iraheem, The Prophet(SAAWS) said "Pray as you've seen me pray.""

Here, my opponent does not elaborate on how The Prophet(SAAWS) prays, let alone that it shows the resolution is true, hence this is meaningless.


"And I am under the opinion that Hanbali Salat is the best and placing the hands on the chest right over left is the best."

This is merely opinion, therefore a bare assertion, thus a logical fallacy [1].


"Even Muwatta Imam Malik, Sahih Bukhari, and Sunan Abu Dawood narrates this about the Prophet(SAAWS)."

This is an appeal to authority, as my opponent never shows the content of the passage(s), but instead merely states that some people think that the resolution is true.


Conclusion

My opponent never demonstrates that the resolution is true, and instead, merely states an opinion and appeals to authority. Furthermore, my opponent never even attempts to show that "clasping" is "Sunnah", let alone being so during Salat. Hence, the resolution is not affirmed, meaning that Con claims victory by default.

Reasons for voting decision: (+) Arguments: as Con pointed out, Pro offered no arguments to support his position, only a cumulation of fallacies. More importantly, Pro has not even shown the logical link between "clasping during salat & "sunnah", thus fails his bop. => Con's win. (+) Sources: Pro provided none. => Con's win.
