Hudhaifa on Islam: The religion is divided into eight components

June 5, 2017

Silah reported: Hudhaifa, may Allah be pleased with him, said, “Islam has eight parts. Islam is a part, prayer is a part, charity is a part, jihād is a part, Ḥajj pilgrimage is a part, fasting Ramadan is a part, enjoining good is a part, and forbidding evil is a part. He has failed who has no part for himself.”

عَنْ صِلَةَ، قَالَ حُذَيْفَةُ رضي الله عنه الْإِسْلَامُ ثَمَانِيَةُ أَسْهُمٍ الإِسْلامُ سَهْمٌ الصَّلَاةُ سَهْمٌ وَالزَّكَاةُ سَهْمٌ وَالْجِهَادُ سَهْمٌ وَالْحَجُّ سَهْمٌ وَصَوْمُ رَمَضَانَ سَهْمٌ وَالْأَمْرُ بِالْمَعْرُوفِ سَهْمٌ وَالنَّهْيُ عَنِ الْمُنْكَرِ سَهْمٌ وَقَدْ خَابَ مَنْ لَا سَهْمَ لَهُ
