Five pillars we should do

        In this occasion I want to share a poem about Five pillars we should do as Moslem. There is no doubt that we should do Five pillars of Islam. Although there is no direct verse in the Qur’an that clearly specifies the five “pillars” of Islam as such, yet various Quranic verses indicate five “pillars” or foundations of Islam, they are:

  1. The declaration of faith (shahadat)
  2. The five prescribed daily prayers (shalat)
  3. Fasting (shaum) during the month of Ramadan
  4. Charity (zakat)
  5. The pilgrimage (hajj) to Mecca (Makkah) once in one’s life-time, for those who can afford it, materially and physically.

Below is a poem about Five pillars we should do

Allah is One and like no one,

He has no partner, nor a son,

He is Kind and Just and Wise,

And has no form, shape or size.

His final Messenger to all of us,

Did so much without a fuss,

Muhammad is his blessed name,

As mercy to the worlds he came.

Five times a day we make Salah,

That’s when we bow down to Allah,

We ask for guidance when we pray,

And this we do every single day.

We have to share with those in need,

And not give in to thoughts of greed,

Zakat then helps us in this way,

Lest we should err and go astray.

In the month of Ramadan we must fast,

From the first day to the last,

When food and drink we put aside,

By fasting rules we then abide.

And all those who can afford,

Seek the pleasure of their Lord,

They perform their Hajj you know,

When to Makkah the pilgrims go.


Source about Five pillars we should do

The 5 Pillars of Islam get their origin directly from the Qur’an and are also discussed in the Hadith of the Prophet Muhammad (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) as well.  They are:

From Qur’an


“God bears witness that there is no god except He, and so do the angels and those who possess knowledge. Truthfully and equitably, there is no god but He, the Almighty, Most Wise”. [Quran 3:18]


“I am God, there is no other God but Me, you shall worship Me and observe the Salat (Contact Prayers) to commemorate Me”. [Quran 20:14]


” ……….. My mercy encompasses all things. I will decree it for those who lead a righteous life, give the obligatory charity (Zakat), and believe in our revelations …..” [Quran 7:156]


“Ramadan is the month during which the Quran was revealed, providing guidance for the people, clear teachings, and the statute book. Those of you who witness this month shall fast therein. Those who are ill or traveling may substitute the same number of other days. God wishes for you convenience, not hardship, that you may fulfill your obligations, and to glorify God for guiding you, and to express your appreciation”. [Quran 2:185]


“And proclaim that the people shall observe Hajj pilgrimage. They will come to you walking or riding on various exhausted (means of transportation). They will come from the farthest locations.” [Quran 22:27]

From Hadith

 “On the authority of Abu Abdul Rahmaan Abdullah (radiAllaahu ‘anhumaa), the son of Umar ibn al-Kattaab (radiAllaahu ‘anhumaa) who said: I heard the Messenger of Allah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) say: ‘Islam is built upon five [pillars]: testifying that there is none worthy of worship except Allah and that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah, establishing the prayers, giving zakat, making pilgrimage to the House and fasting the month of Ramadan.’” (Recorded in Bukhari and Muslim)

Wallahu a’lam bish-shawab
