The Five Pillars of Islam

These are the guiding principles of Muslim life.

The Prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H) said:

“Islam is founded on five pillars to testify that ‘there is no deity except God, and Muhammed is the Messenger of God’, to establish the ritual prayers, to give charity (to the needy), to fast during the month of Ramadan, and to perform the pilgrimage to the House (of worship in Makkah).”

The Five Pillars Are:
Shahada
Declaration of Faith
Salah
Daily Prayer
Zakah
Charity
