The 5 Pillars

One of the first things you would be taught about Islam in any basic introductory class, is that the religion of Islam consists of five ‘pillars’ of faith. These are five tenets of the religion which are obligatory on every capable Muslim. I say ‘capable’, because each pillar is dependent on your abilities such as physical ability, financial ability, and mental ability.

For more information on each of these 5 pillars of the Islamic faith, follow the links below:

The Shahadah (The declaration of faith)

Salah (The Islamic daily prayers)

Sawm (The month of fasting in Ramadan)

Zakah (Charity, specifically the yearly religious tax) – post coming soon inshaa Allah

Hajj (The major pilgrimage to Mecca) – post coming soon inshaa Allah
