Islam is the world’s second world wide religion based on the teachings of the holy book Quran which was revealed to Prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H). He is the last and the final messenger according to Allah, the holy name of God in Islam. After Allah, the second command goes to Prophet Muhammad and his life is recorded from the day of his birth to his last breath. His commands are known as Hadith. Quran is the last of the 4 holy books; Torah which was revealed to Moses. Zabur to David and Bible to Jesus, which was followed by Quran to Prophet Muhammad. A Muslim must perform/believe the five pillars of Islam which are:
◾1) Shahadah. (Believe or confession of faith, that there is no god except the one and only Allah.)
◾2) Salah. (The five time prayer.)
◾3) Sawm. (Fasting during the month of Ramadan.)
◾4) Zakat. (The charitable amount given to needful people according to the money we have for a whole year.)
◾5) Hajj. (The pilgrimage to Mecca, at least once in a lifetime)
By this, a person becomes a Muslim and should be obliged to be fully devoted to Islam by spending life the way it’s been told by Allah.
