was asked in QRAC today by Imraan who, like myself, does not believe in a divinely ordained ritual salat:
I have the honour of being visited by a brother who has travelled 1000km to learn the basics of islam from a quran only perspective rather than subjecting himself to the lunacies of the traditional islamic authorities in his area. He reverted based on Quran only.
He wants to learn the prayer, but since I don’t view salat as prayer, I would like some input on how those of you who consider salat to be prayer as to how you do such prayer from a Quran only perspective.
I look forward to your comments so that I can demonstrate the options to him
If you asked me, I would say that if one wants to perform a ritual, just follow the Traditional one. As long as it fulfils the function..

A very good point was raised by Imraan in Quranology Discussions today:
Just been wondering about something.
In 4:102, it is indicated that the salat ends with sujood.
To those who accept salat as prayer, do you end your prayer with a prostration or do you consider this to be only relevant for the conditions described in the relevant passage?
Also, are there any people out there who have experienced the relevant conditions, and if so how did you end your prayer under those circumstances?
A very good point indeed. The Traditional ritual ends with sitting and reading the tashahud.
