Sixth pillar of Islam - definition of Sixth pillar of Islam in Encyclopedia (497 words)
The term Sixth pillar of Islam refers to an addition to the Five Pillars of Islam; the five pillars of Islam explain the basic tenets of the Muslim faith.
In the early days of Islam, the Kharijite sect are said to have claimed that jihad was the sixth pillar of Islam([1] (http://www.salaam.co.uk/knowledge/schleifer_2.php); see also takfir.) However, the surviving Kharijites (that is, the Ibadis) of the present day reject this doctrine.
In this case, the sixth pillar of Islam is hajj, not Allegiance to the Imam, and not Jihad.
