Number 5 in Islam
The Five Pillars of Islam
The five pillars are fundamental of the Muslim life.
|Shahadah||Acknowledge monotheism and accepting Muhammad as God’s messenger. They proclaim: “There is no God but Allah, and Muhammad is the messenger of Allah.”|
|Salah||The requirement to pray five times every day|
|Sawm||Ritual Fasting during Ramadan. Muslims in good health do not drink nor eat during daylight hours.|
|Pilgrimage to the holy city of Mecca. This is expected of every Muslim who is healthy and can afford to make the trip once in their lifetime. Those who fulfill the Hajj are entitled to add “al-Hajj” to their name.|
