Basic Duties of Islam

MV: IT is very important for a Muslim to do these 5 duties in there whole life. I got this interesting article from the book Islam Beliefs and Teachings by Ghulam Sarwar. In Islam these duties are the most important things that you need to do as a Muslim

Islam has five basic duties which Muslims must do. they are known as the 5 basic pillars of  Islam (Arkanul Islam). These pillars are mentioned in the following hadith ( a saying of the prophet PBUH):

” Buniyal islamu ala khamsin;: shahadati an la ilaha wa anna muhammadan rasullulahi wa iqamis salati wa ita is zakati wal hajji wa sawmi ramadan.”

” Islam is based upon five things declaring that there is no god except Allah and that Muhammad is the messenger of  Allah, the establishment of salah, the payment of zakah, the hajj and sawm in the month ramadan.” (al-bukhari)

the five pillars as mentioned in the hadith are:

Shahadah- declaration of faith

Salah- five compulsory daily prayers

Zakah- welfare contributor

Hajj- pilgrimage to Makkah

Sawm- fasting during ramadan
