The various pillars of Islam

Question

Is this Hadith authentic?

الإسلام أن تعبد الله لا تشرك به شيئا، وتقيم الصلاة، وتؤتي الزكاة، وتصوم رمضان، وتحج البيت، والأمر بالمعروف، والنهي عن المنكر، وتسليمك على أهلك، فمن انتقص شيئا منهن فهوسهم من الإسلام يدعه، ومن تركهن كلهن فقد ولى الإسلام ظهره

 

Answer

Imam Hakim (rahimahullah) has recorded this Hadith on the authority of Sayyiduna Abu Hurayrah (radiyallahu ‘anhu). He has declared the Hadith authentic and Hafiz Dhahabi concurs.

(Mustadrak Hakim, vol. 1 pg. 21. Also see: Targhib, vol. 3 pg. 232)

 

Translation

Islam is that you worship Allah and do not ascribe any partners to Him, establish salah, discharge zakah, fast in Ramadan, perform Hajj, enjoin good, forbid evil and greeting your household. Whoever omits one is omitting a portion of Islam and whoever omits all has turned his back to Islam.

 

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
