    Pillars in Islam


    Assalaamualaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu
    inshaAllah you are safe and in the best of health and imaan

    Number 2:
    Narrated Mu'adh ibn Jabal: I said to Allah's Messenger (salla llahu
    alayhi wa sallam): Inform me about an act which would entitle me to
    get into Paradise, and remove me away from Hell-Fire.

    He (the Prophet) said: You have asked me about a matter (which
    ostensibly appears to be) difficult but it is easy to those for whom
    Allah, the Exalted, has made it easy. Worship Allah and do not
    associate anything with him, establish prayer, pay the Zakat, observe
    the fast of Ramadan and perform Hajj to the (sacred) House (Ka'bah).
    He again said: Should I not direct you to the gateways of good?

    Listen to me: The fasting is a shield against evil, the charity
    extinguishes (the fire of sin) just as water extinguishes fire, the
    prayer of a person during the middle of the night. Then he
    recited: 'Who forsake their beds...(up to)....they used to do.' Then
    he said: Should I not direct you to the highest level of this matter,
    to the pillar on which (it rests) and its top?

    I said: Allah's Messenger yes, (do tell me). He said: The uppermost
    level of the matter is al-Islam. Its pillar is the prayer and its top
    is Jihad. He then said: Should I not inform you of the sheet anchor
    of all this? I said: Allah's Apostle (of course do it). He took hold
    of his tongue and said: Exercise restraint on it. I said: Apostle of
    Allah, would we be held responsible for what we say with it?

    Thereupon he said: Mu'adh, may your mother be bereaved. Will anything
    else besides (irresponsible) talk cause the people to be thrown into
    the Hell-Fire upon their faces or on their nostrils?

    (Transmitted by Ahmad, Tirmidhi, Ibn Majah.)

    "I put my trust in Allah, my Lord and your Lord! There is not a moving creature, but He has a grasp of its forelock. Verily, my Lord is on the straight path. (The truth)"
