Dear Brother / Sister,
Prayer was rendered fard on the night of Miraj (Ascension), about one and a half years before the Migration as five times a day. It is stated that prayers were performed two times a day before Miraj. Then, it was increased to five times in Miraj.
Ramadan fasting was rendered fard one month after the qiblah was changed as the Kaaba, 18 months after the Migration of the Prophet (pbuh) to Madinah, in the month of Shaban.
Zakah was rendered fard in the second year of the Migration, after Ramadan fasting was rendered fard and giving fitrah was rendered wajib.
Hajj, which is one of the five pillars of Islam, was rendered fard in the ninth year of the Migration.
Accordingly, the order is as follows: prayer, fasting, zakah and hajj.
