The Five Pillars of Islam are fundamental principles in the Muslim faith and are a series of compulsory acts that all Muslims must undertake in their life.
Shahadah is very important, as it is the declaration of faith and trust that there is only one God. It is also the declaration that Muhammad is God’s messenger.
This is done by saying a set statement in Arabic, which translates as “there is no god but God (and) Muhammad is the messenger of God”.
It is essential that each Muslim utter this statement in order to establish their Islamic faith, and it’s also vital for those who wish to convert to Islam.
Zakat, which is also known as alms-giving, is the practice of making a charitable giving based on your own wealth.
The term is defined as purification and growth and is intended to be a symbol that all things belong to God. It is a compulsory act for all Muslims who can afford to do so, as it is the personal responsibility of every Muslim to ease the suffering of others.
For those who cannot afford a financial donation, a voluntary charitable act is also acceptable.
