Lesson 12: Hadith 3 (Part 7-12) and Hadith 4 (Parts 1-5)
- We are currently on Hadith 3:
- On the authority of Abdullah, the son of Umar ibn al-Khattab (may Allah be pleased with them both), who said: I heard the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) say, “Islam has been built on five [pillars]: testifying that there is no deity worthy of worship except Allah and that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah, establishing the salah (prayer), paying the zakat (obligatory charity), making the hajj (pilgrimage) to the House, and fasting in Ramadhan.” [Bukhari & Muslim]
- What is the difference between this hadith (i.e. hadith 3) and hadith 2 which both covered the five pillars of Islam
- Previous Lesson we covered Parts 1-6 of the explanation of this hadith
Part 7: Fasting in the Month of Ramadhaan
- This is and act of worship which is physical in nature
- It is not apparent to others whether one is fasting or not, it is an act of worship which is secret between the servant and his Lord
- Why has fasting been made special by Allah?
Part 8: Hajj
- Hajj is a physical act of worship and is also related to your wealth
- The Prophet (ﷺ) described the immense virtue of Hajj, what did he say?
Part 9-10: The order
- why are the pillars of Islam ordered in such a way (Testimony of Faith, Prayer, Zakah, Fasting, Hajj)? Are there different orders in other narrations? What is the clearest narration?
- These five pillars have been mentioned based on their importance (e.g. the Shahaadah is the first pillar of Islam as everything else depends upon it, etc)
Part 11: Is Jihad from the pillars of Islam?
