Assalamu Alikum sir.

What is the evidence that the Arabs before the advent of Islam were well aware of the concepts like hajj, salah, zakah etc.

For Hajj and Prayer, the biggest evidence is the Holy Kaaba itself. Pre-Islamic Arabic literature containing their sermons and poetry is also available and these topics are discussed in them. In the Holy Quran, which is the first book in the known history of Arabs, it is clearly mentioned that pilgrimage and performing prayer was a regular practice. For instance, in Surat ul Ma'oon, the prayer of Arab pagans is mentioned. Similarly, their practice of pilgrimage is also described. Arabs, before advent of Islam, regarded regular charity as a good deed. All these good practices were the remnants of the Divine Law instituted by Prophet Abraham and Prophet Ishmael علیہما الصلوۃ والسلام. However, it is true that Arabs altered this law and incorporated certain illegitimate practices in them. In the Quran, such deviations from the law instituted by the earlier prophets is strongly condemned.

For details, you can see the book of Dr. Jawwad Ali, “The History of Arabia before Islam” (تاریخ العرب قبل الاسلام) in which he has compiled all the information about Pre-Islamic Arabia in eight volumes.
