First pillar Shahada (Profession of Faith), “Ashadu ʾan la ʾilaha ʾilla -llahu, wa-ʾashadu ʾanna muḥammadan rasūlu – llah” (I bear witness that there is no deity but God, and I bear witness that Muhammad is the messenger of God), Surah Al Baqarah verse 140 “And who is more unjust than he who conceals a testimony that he has from Allah? And Allah is not at all heedless of what you do”. Second pillar Salah (Prayer), Surah Al Baqarah verse 238 “Attend constantly to prayers and to the middle prayer and stand up truly obedient to Allah”. Third pillar Zakat (Alms), Surah Al Baqarah verse 277 “Surely they who believe and do good deeds and keep up prayer and pay zakah they shall have their reward from their Lord, and they shall have no fear, nor shall they grieve". Fourth pillar Sawm (Fasting), Surah Al Baqarah verse 183-185 ” O you who believe! fasting is prescribed for you, as it was prescribed for those before you, so that you may guard (against evil). For a certain number of days; but whoever among you is sick or on a journey, then (he shall fast) a (like) number of other days; and those who are not able to do it may effect a redemption by feeding a poor man; so whoever does good spontaneously it is better for him; and that you fast is better for you if you know. The month of Ramadan is that in which the Quran was revealed, a guidance to men and clear proofs of the guidance and the distinction; therefore whoever of you is present in the month, he shall fast therein, and whoever is sick or upon a journey, then (he shall fast) a (like) number of other days; Allah desires ease for you, and He does not desire for you difficulty, and (He desires) that you should complete the number and that you should exalt the greatness of Allah for His having guided you and that you may give thanks”. Fifth pillar Hajj (Pilgrimage to Mecca), Surah Al Baqarah verse 196 "And accomplish the pilgrimage and the visit for Allah, but if, you are prevented, (send) whatever offering is easy to obtain, and do not shave your heads until the offering reaches its destination; but whoever among you is sick or has an ailment of the head, he (should effect) a compensation by fasting or alms or sacrificing, then when you are secure, whoever profits by combining the visit with the pilgrimage (should take) what offering is easy to obtain; but he who cannot find (any offering) should fast for three days during the pilgrimage and for seven days when you return; these (make) ten (days) complete; this is for him whose family is not present in the Sacred Mosque, and be careful (of your duty) to Allah, and know that Allah is severe in requiting (evil)”.
