35. Islam is founded upon ten pillars

Back to book

10-48 حدثنا أبي رضي الله عنه قال: حدثنا محمد بن يحيى العطار، عن محمد بن أحمد، عن إبراهيم بن إسحاق، عن محمد بن خالد البرقي، عن محمد بن أبي عمير، عن ابن بكير، عن زرارة قال: قال أبوجعفر عليه السلام: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله: بني الاسلام على عشرة أسهم: على شهادة أن لا إله إلا الله وهي الملة، والصلاة وهي الفريضة، والصوم وهو الجنة، والزكاة وهي الطهر، والحج وهي الشريعة، والجهاد وهو الغزو، والامر بالمعروف وهوالوفاء، والنهي، عن المنكر وهو الحجة، والجماعة وهي الالفة، والعصمة وهي الطاعة

10-48 (The compiler of the book narrated) that his father - may God be pleased with him - narrated that Muhammad ibn Yahya al-Attar quoted Muhammad ibn Ahmad, on the authority of Ibrahim ibn Ishaq, on the authority of Muhammad ibn Khalid al-Barqy, on the authority of Muhammad ibn Abi Umayr, on the authority of Ibn Bakir, on the authority of Zurarah, on the authority of Abu Ja’far al-Baqir (MGB) that God’s Prophet (MGB) said, “Islam is founded upon ten pillars as follows: bearing witness that ‘There is no god but God’ - that is the basis of a Muslim’s nationality; prayer which is an obligatory deed; fasting which is a shield against the fire; payment of the alms-tax which purifies one’s possessions; going on the Hajj pilgrimage which is a decree; participating in holy war which is an honor; enjoining to do good deeds which is persistence in belief; admonishing against the bad deeds which is giving an ultimatum; attending congregational prayers which results in mutual sympathy; and avoiding sins which is the basis of obedience.”
