5 Principles of Islam

Sahih Bukhari Volumn 001, Book 002, Hadith Number 044.

Narated By Talha bin ‘Ubaidullah : A man from Najd with unkempt hair came to Allah’s Apostle and we heard his loud voice but could not understand what he was saying, till he came near and then we came to know that he was asking about Islam. Allah’s Apostle said, “You have to offer prayers perfectly five times in a day and night (24 hours).” The man asked, “Is there any more (praying)?” Allah’s Apostle replied, “No, but if you want to offer the Nawafil prayers (you can).” Allah’s Apostle further said to him: “You have to observe fasts during the month of Ramad, an.” The man asked, “Is there any more fasting?” Allah’s Apostle replied, “No, but if you want to observe the Nawafil fasts (you can.)” Then Allah’s Apostle further said to him, “You have to pay the Zakat (obligatory charity).” The man asked, “Is there any thing other than the Zakat for me to pay?” Allah’s Apostle replied, “No, unless you want to give alms of your own.” And then that man retreated saying, “By Allah! I will neither do less nor more than this.” Allah’s Apostle said, “If what he said is true, then he will be successful (i.e. he will be granted Paradise).”

  1. Masha Allah, you have wrote a beautiful and meaningful Quote here, about the Principle of Islaam!
    I would like to know something about the manners of these Principles, means how to pay them as in its correct form, everyone knows we should offer pray give zakat, but don’t know the right way, how to?
    Kindly would you post something here about it, or can suggest some websites from where we can get help.

  2. I am sorry.
    At this time I work alone during my spare time in office.
    So this site is not very up to date.
    Especially I am also working on my other blogs:
    http://www.media-islam.or.id
    http://www.infoindonesia.wordpress.com

    BTW, as your suggestion, I have given 3 links in Islamic Sites to those who want to learn more about Islam.

    Insha Allah I will try my best to update this site.

    Thanks a lot for your suggestion.
