Pillars of Islam

The five pillars of Islam are the basic tenets of faith that hold the entire foundation in place. Every follower is obliged to pursue these values and imbibe them. It teaches the way of life and makes it a part of the routine. These practices strengthen the core and unite people in the community. It is said that Muslims are commanded by Allah to chase these values in the form of duties without failing. These pillars are the fundamental Islamic beliefs that remind followers every day of the teachings of Allah and help them to put Him first in every aspect of their lives. It helps to establish a link between Muslims and the supreme power. They follow the example of the Prophet to structure their life, beliefs and devotion.

Faith (Shahada)

The Quran is the holy book of the religion, and every follower must recite its phrases with conviction. It helps the soul to communicate with Allah and reminds people of the purpose of their lives. Among the five pillars of Islam, faith helps people to surrender themselves to Allah

Prayer (Salat)

It starts with reciting the opening chapter of the Quran. On Friday, men gather at the nearest mosque for the noon-time prayer.Praying purifies the body and heart from the sins of the past. It brings positive energy and consistency to life.

Fasting (Sawm)

Ninth on the Islamic calendar, the month of Ramadan is the time when healthy and able Muslims must forgo drinks and food during the daylight. It symbolizes restoration of gratitude for everything that God has given, including the holy book of the Quran. It helps the followers to share the thirst and hunger of the lesser fortunate and makes them realize their duty to help them

Charity (Almsgiving)

Muslims, who are wealthy or financially stable, donate to community members and organizations for building mosques, schools, hospitals and other institutions that can help the needy in any way. It is a religious duty that brings Allah’s blessings upon people. It helps to increase the count of wealth and maintain a balance in society.

Pilgrimage (Hajj)

If a Muslim has sound health and enough bank balance, Hajj is mandatory for that person. It is the pilgrimage to the sacred city of Mecca in Saudi Arabia. Pilgrims circle around Kaaba, a cubical structure in the center of the Haram Mosque in the city. It is believed to be the house of Ibrahim, built for God. Hajj is carried out on the eighth and twelfth day of the last month in the Islamic calendar.
