    I am looking for a list of bare minimum (not exceeding 10) expectations from a Muslim to qualify for paradise in each of these categories.

    Please provide a simple list to understand and follow.

    a) Beliefs

    b) Rituals

    c) Non-ritualistic traits of a Muslim

    d) What to avoid

    So following procedure defined by religion about Nikah and Talaq and distributing inheritance etc isn’t mandatory?

    I mean it’s good if somone obeys Allah and follows these procedures. But is it compulsory on a believer?

      This answer is addressing points (a), (b), (c) and (d) asked in the question specifically. This list doesn’t encompass every command like Nikah and Tallaq and Distribution of Inheritance because they are applicable to an individual only when he is faced with such a situation (e.g. when he decides to marry or give divorce or when he decides to write his will etc.) or they are applicable to the Muslim Society as a whole (e.g. Distribution of inheritance by society after death of an individual, Jihad, Islamic Punishments etc.). This doesn’t mean that part of Sharia is not compulsory on Muslims, it is indeed. But when we we try to reduce it to bare minimum at a highly individual level, then we reach the above answer.
