| Topic: The five pillars of Islam
Posted: 06 August 2013 at 2:35am
Can anyone tell me which of the pillars of Islam originate entirely from the Qur'an?
The reason why I'm asking this is because I have one friend in work who is a Muslim, and someone else who I know who is a friend of a friend who says he is becoming a Muslim.
But the friend of a friend who I know is a bit of a strange character and I doubt he has taken the idea of Islam all that seriously.
He smokes weed, has sex outside of marriage, never prays or even goes to a mosque and he didn't acknowledge Ramadan, he loves music and has insurance on his car aswell, but when I brought all these points up to him he just said none of these things are actually in the Qur'an, I was going to argue with him but then I realized I don't actually know much about the Quran myself and it's been a while since I did read it so this is why I am curious about what does it say about prayer and Ramadan actually within the Qur'an, I've heard that praying 5 times is actually only mentioned in the hadith, I don't know what the Quran says about insurance, music or anything else.

In Islam the first pillar is shahadah-there is no God but Allah and prophet Muhammad is the last prophet.this is related to Surah Al Ikhlaas ch 112 v 1-4,in Surah Al Ahzaab ch 33 v 40-Allah says Prophet Muhammad S.A.W(pbuh) is sent as mercy to mankind and he is last prophet.Second pillar is Salaah(prayer).Allah describes this in ch 20 v 130,ch 17 v 78,Allah describe the importance of Asir salaah in ch 2 v 238,Allah says leave all your transaction and buisiness to attend jummuah salaah(ch 62 v 9).Third pillar is fast.Allah says fast so that U become patient(ch 2 v 183),Allah says who so ever witness Ramadan should fast(ch 2 v 185).Regarding Zakah Allah says in ch 2 v 261,264,265.Allah says about Hajj in ch 2 v 156-158.Allah forbids riba not insurance unless it deals with interest,Allah forbids riba in ch 2 v 278-279,ch 3 v 130 and many other places.Allah forbids adultery in ch 17 v 32,Allah says the punishment of this sin is 100 lashes in ch 24 v 2.regarding smoking of weed Allah says don't intoxicate ur body in ch 5 v 90.there is no verse in Qur'an in my knowledge that forbids music,yes if U listen to music that is against Allah or if U listen at time of Adhaan then it is forbidden otherwise there R different opinions of scholars.Allah says we have to pray five times by saying pray in dawn, noon, evening prayers, and then night prayer (isha).Allah also describes the importance of non obligatory prayer(Tahajjud) in ch 17 v 79.in fact Allah says best time to pray is in night (ch 73 v 6).
