عَنْ اَبِي حَمْزَةَ عَنْ اَبِي جَعْفَرٍ ؑ قَالَ بُنِيَ الْاِسْلَامُ عَلَى خَمْسٍ عَلَى الصَّلَاةِ وَ الزَّكَاةِ وَ الصَّوْمِ وَ الْحَجِّ وَ الْوَلَايَةِ وَ لَمْ يُنَادَ بِشَيْ‏ءٍ كَمَا نُودِيَ بِالْوَلَايَةِ

Abu Hamzah (al-Thumaali) reports from Imam Abu Ja’far (al-Baqer – peace be on him) said,

“Islam is built on five (pillars): On prayers, poor-rate, fasting, Hajj and mastership (of Ahle Bait – peace be on them). Nothing will be called out as mastership will be called out.”
