THE FABRICATED PILLARS OF ISLAM - 2009
The term Pillars of Islam is absolutely non-Quranic. There is no such term as ‘Imaad-id-Deen in the Book. (’Imaad means pillars.) But the “Imams” have designated
2. Ritual prayer,
4. Fasting and
5. Pilgrimage as the so-called Five Pillars of Islam.
They, however, abjectly fail to describe the building! No doubt, these five are only a few of the important Commandments. But what is amiss with our religious leaders that they disregard many more important Commandments of Allah? For example, guarding human rights and benefiting people are the central themes in the Quran.
Give and grow!
13:17 … That which is of benefit to mankind, exists on earth. This is how Allah uses analogies for you to understand. [The real existence on earth is of the person or the system that benefits humanity]
Bukhari relates a strange and incomplete statement here, “The foundation of Islam is on five.” Notice the word ‘Pillars’ missing even here, betraying the half-hearted attempt at forgery
Moreover, the Shi’ah Pillars of Islam are quite different:
1. TAWHEED (Oneness of God),
2. ‘ADL - (Justice),
3. NUBUWWAT (Belief in the Prophets of God).
4. IMAMAT (12 sinless Imams divinely guided by God).
5. QIYAMAT (The Resurrection).
May Allah guide us to and through His Glorious Book!
