THE FABRICATED PILLARS OF ISLAM
The term "Pillars of Islam” is absolutely non-Qur’anic. There is no such term as 'Imaadil Islam' or 'Imaad-id-Deen’ in the Book of Allah, nor even in Hadith! ['Imaad' means pillars.] But the Muslim clergy, the "Imams" of Hadith, invented the so-called Five Pillars of Islam in the third century after the exalted Prophet Muhammad.
The Sunni Pillars: *Iman (Conviction in Truth) – *Salat (relegated to ritual prayers five times a day) - *Zakaat (degraded to 2.5% annual charity or poor-due) - *Saum (reduced to fasting in the month of Ramadhan) - *Hajj (Pilgrimage to Makkah).
The clergy, however, abjectly fail to describe a beautiful building on these “Pillars”.
Guarding Human Rights and doing actions that benefit people are the Central Themes in the Qur’an. Give and grow!
I can imagine “Imam” Bukhari committing an atrocious forgery, writing an incomplete, erroneous sentence with a fibrillating heart and a trembling hand, "Al-binaa-il-Islam ‘ala khams.” (The foundation or building of Islam is on five.) Notice the word 'Pillars' missing even here, betraying his attempt at frank forgery.
The Shi’ah Pillars are quite different: *Tawheed (Monotheism) – *‘Adl (Justice) - *Nubuwwat (Belief in the prophets of God) - *Imamat (Imamate or belief in "Imams") -*Qiyamat (Resurrection).
