Five Pillars of Islam and Muslim Prayers

The Five Pillars of Islam are the five most important obligations of the Islamic faith. They are the foundation of a Muslim’s life and are essential to living a life of submission to Allah.

  • The first pillar is the declaration of faith or Shahadah. This is the profession of faith that there is no god but God and Muhammad is His messenger. To become a Muslim, one must say the Shahadah with sincerity and believe it with their heart.
  • The second pillar is prayer or Salah. This is the ritual prayer done five times a day, at specific times. This ritual prayer has two parts: standing, and then bowing and prostrating. It is meant to be a physical and spiritual practice and a time for Muslims to reflect on their faith.
  • The third pillar is giving charity or Zakat. This is a form of alms-giving and is expected of every Muslim who can do so. It helps those who are in need and is seen as an act of worship.
  • The fourth pillar is fasting or Sawm. During the month of Ramadan, Muslims fast from dawn to dusk. This is meant to be a time of spiritual reflection and is also a way to practice self-control.
  • The fifth pillar is the pilgrimage to Makkah (Mecca) or Hajj. This is an obligatory pilgrimage that all Muslims must do at least once in their lifetime if they can do so. It is a reminder of the unity of all believers, and the importance of faith and service to Allah.

These five pillars are the foundation of the Islamic faith, and all of them must be practised to be a good Muslim.

Muslim prayers are an essential part of life for a Muslim. Prayers are done five times daily, at specific times. The five daily prayers, or Salah (Namaz, Salat), are Fajr, Dhuhr, Asr, Maghrib, and Isha.

  • Asr is the mid-afternoon prayer.
  • Maghrib is the sunset prayer.
