The ‘Five Pillars
‘ of Islam are the foundation of Muslim life:
- Faith or belief in the Oneness of God and His messenger Muhammad (peace be upon him) as the final prophet;
- Establishment of the five daily prayers;
- Giving charity to the poor and needy;
- Self-purification through fasting;
- The Hajj pilgrimage to Makkah once in a lifetime for those who are physically and financially able.
