There are five simple but essential that all practicing Muslims accept and follow the celebrations. These ” pillars of Islam ” represent the core that unites all Muslims .religion

1) The ” statement of faith “

A Muslim is the one who bears witness that ” not worthy of worship except Allah and Muhammad is the messenger of Allah . ” This statement is known as the ” shahada ” ( witness testimony ) .ISLAM Allah is the Arabic name of God as Jehovah is the Hebrew name of God.religion Doing this simple proclamation one becomes a Muslim. Proclamation affirms Islam the absolute conviction in the oneness of God , the sole right to be worshiped, and the doctrine that anything beside God is the only unforgivable sin , as we read in the Qur’an:ISLAM

” God does not forgive someone associate anything with him, so forgive whom He wills for anything else. Whoever gives partners God has invented a terrible sin . ” ( Quran 4:48 )religion

The second part of the testimony of faith affirms that Muhammad , peace and blessings of God be upon him , is a prophet of God like Abraham , Moses and Jesus before him. Muhammad brought the last revelation. In accepting Muhammad as the ” Seal of the Prophets ” , Muslims believe that his prophecy confirms and responds to all revealed messages , beginning with Adam. In addition , Muhammad serves as a role model for his exemplary life . The efforts of believers to follow Muhammad ‘s example reflects the importance of Islam in practice and action.ISLAM

2) Prayer ( Salah )religion

Muslims worship five times a day : at dawn , noon , afternoon , sunset , and evening . Help keep the faithful conscious of God in the stress of work and family. He gives the spiritual, reaffirms total dependence on God, and puts worldly concerns in the context of the trial and beyond. The prayers consist of standing , bowing, kneeling , put his forehead on the floor and sat down. Prayer is a way in maintaining a relationship between God and his creation. Includes recitations of the Quran praises of God , prayers for forgiveness and other supplications .religion Prayer is an expression of submission , humility and the worship of God .

3) the obligatory charity ( Zakat )religion

In Islam , the true owner of everything is God and not man. People have wealth as a trust from God. Zakat is worship and thanksgiving to God for the support of the poor , and through it purifies his fortune .. It requires an annual contribution of 2.5 percent of the wealth and property of an individual. Therefore, zakat is not a simple ” charity” is a must for those who have received their wealth from God to meet the needs of the less fortunate members of the community. Zakat is used to support the poor and needy , help those who are in debt , and in ancient times, to free the slaves.ISLAM

I will arise and go now, and go to Innisfree, And a small cabin build there, of clay and wattles made: Nine bean-rows will I have there, a hive for the honeybee, And live alone in the bee-loud glade. And I shall have some peace there, for peace comes dropping slow, Dropping from the veils of the morning to where the cricket sings; There midnight's all a glimmer, and noon a purple glow, And evening full of the linnet's wings. I will arise and go now, for always night and day I hear lake water lapping with low sounds by the shore; While I stand on the roadway, or on the pavements gray, I hear it in the deep heart's core.
