The verse that binds a person to Islam and triggers the rebirth of him as a Muslim is it itself conclusive enough to set the priority of a believer. Allah is the one and only god and that is the first thing a person brings faith upon, and that is the one thing, if overlooked or violated; renders the person a non-Muslim. The act of staining the belief in the oneness of Allah is known as “shirk”. It can be understood through the word polytheism, which refers to worshipping other beings or objects along with Allah. Vastly it implies attributing divine characteristics to any other besides Allah and associating partners in worship with Allah.
One of the most significant examples of the main beliefs and practices of Islam shown in The Alchemist is when Santiago is talking to the crystal merchant building a display case in the crystal shop. While telling Santiago why he is hesitant about building a display case, he also tells him about the five obligations that Muslims must follow. “‘The prophet gave us the Koran, and left us just five obligations to satisfy during our lives. The most important is to believe only in the one true God. The others are to pray five times a day, fast during Ramadan, and be charitable to the poor… The fifth obligation of every Muslim is a pilgrimage.

This is determinedly the ultimate act of worship for any Muslim as it involves traveling to the holiest place. That's why it's a good idea to take a look at a Hajj pilgrimage package that can take any able-bodied Muslim to the center or Islamic worship.
But those who are too arrogant to worship me will surely find themselves in hell, in humiliation. (Qur’an 40:60). The above mentioned Qur’an verse clearly shows the important of seeking help and supplicating to Allah. Dua’a in Islam is a spiritual means by which the believer praises, beseeching for help and guidance from Allah Almighty. It is a great form of worship in Islam, it serves as the weapon for the believer, it is the crucial bond between the creator and His slaves and also the best thing that Allah Almighty requests from His servant to engage in day and night, though Allah Almighty is not in need of any creation.
Therefore I think Hassan knew he had let Amir know that he would always find a friend in Kabul. In doing that Hassan showed Amir that forgiving is important and never too late. The last character to influence Amir was Baba because he shaped Amir into the man he is. In the letter that Rahim Khan left for Amir when he arrived back in Pakistan in the hospital, he reads, “When he saw you , he saw himself.” (Pg.301) This quote suggest that Amir realizes that when Baba was hard on him it was because he wanted him to be a better man than Babe.

This principle, if consciously and earnestly followed, will necessarily yield three beneficial results.

We seek refuse in Allah, from the mischief of our souls Discourses On Islamic Way Of Life (Vol: VIII) 98 And from our evil deeds.
