Abu Aiyub (may Allah be pleased with him) reported that a man said to the Messenger of Allah (may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him): Lead me to a deed which may admit me to Paradise. The Messenger of Allah said: You should worship Allah and never associate anything with Him, establish prayer, pay Zakah, and strengthen the ties of kinship. (Agreed-upon)

(Reported by Muslim)
