1. Salaah

Muslim: In a Hadith Qudsi, Allah states: “Oh Muhammad sallallahu alaihi wa sallam, Verily, I have made five Salaah obligatory on your Ummah ..." (Ibn Majah)


Shia: Abu Jafar said: “When the sun moves from the mid point, the two times (of prayer) enter: Zuhr and Asr. When the sun sets, the two times (of prayer) enter: Maghrib and Esha.” (Wasaail ash Shia, 4692)
2. Wudhu
Muslim: O you who believe, when you rise for Salah, (prayer) wash your faces and your hands up to the elbows, and make masah (wiping by hands) of your heads and (wash) your feet up to the ankles. (Quran 5:6)
Shia: Abu Abdullah said: Sixty or seventy years comes upon a man without Allah having accepted a (single) salat from him. I said: How is that? He said: For he washed (his feet in Wudhu).” (Wasaail ash Shia, 1089)
3. Pillars of Faith
Muslim: Islam has been built on five (pillars): testifying that there is no god but Allah and that Muhammad (sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) is the Messenger of Allah, performing the prayers, paying the Zakah, making the pilgrimage to the House (Ka’bah), and fasting in Ramadan. (Bukhari)
Shia: Abu Jafar said: Islam has been built on five (pillars): prayers, Zakah, fasting in Ramadan, pilgrimage (Hajj) and Wilayah (believing in divinely appointed Imams). (Bihar al Anwar 329)
