Is’af al-Muridin li Iqamah Fara’id al-Din
A manual on creed and Hanafi Fiqh
The Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) said, ‘Islam is built upon five [pillars]: the testimony that there is no god except Allah and that Muhammad is the messenger of Allah, establishing the prayer, paying zakat, making the hajj to the House, and fasting in Ramadan’ (narrated by al-Bukhari and Muslim). This short treatise succinctly presents each of these five pillars with the detail necessary for their correct understanding and application.
