Pillars Alone?

Just a thought that has been coming to me for the last few days.

Many people feel that once they are abiding by the five pillars of islam...

  1. Emaan
  2. Salaah
  3. Zakaah
  4. Sawm
  5. Hajj
...they are complete Muslims.

However, a building does not only constitute of pillars. There are many other things that make up a building. So, while these five pillars are the foundation of a Muslim, the rest of the commands of Allah and His Rasul Salla Allahu Alayhi wa Sallam are just as important, even if they are something we deem small. 

Otherwise, it is just like a house without roof and walls.
