Pillars Of Islam Are Obligations On All Muslims

The “five basic pillars of religion Islam” are religious obligations that provide a complete framework for every Muslim’s life. In which Namaz is an obligation that is performed regularly and all the pillars of Islam helps in attaining the personal spiritual growth, self- abstain and self-restraint, to care for the poor, self-discipline, and sacrifice. All the pillars of Islam provide complete structure and hold something steadily in place. They provide support, and all Muslims must be present for the framework to balance perfect and steadily.

Islamic teachings about the Five Basic Pillars of Islam are found in the Hadith and Quran. Let us discuss all the pillars.

SHAHAADAH

The first and the most important act of worship that every Muslims has to do is a declaration and confirmation of faith, well known as the shahaadah. The literal meaning of word shahaadah is “to bear witness,” so by professing and admitting faith verbally; a person is bearing witness to the truth of the message of Islam and it is the most fundamental teachings. The shahaadah is repeated several times by Muslims each day, both individually and also in daily namaz, and it is the most frequently-written phrase in Arabic calligraphy.

Non-Muslims who want to accept Islam and to convert to religion Islam do so by simply reciting and proclaiming the shahaadah aloud, preferably in front witnesses. Before die, Muslims also wish to say these words od shahaadah.

SALAAT OR NAMAZ

When a Muslim stands before the ALLAH Almighty with his arms folded, every day five times, praises ALLAH and kneels down before Him and touches the floor or ground with his forehead for doing Sajdah and makes earnest supplications to ALLAH Almighty, that person becomes worthy of His beneficence and love, his heart attains great enlightenment and his life becomes more pure from sins.

Every day namaz is a touchstone in every Muslim’s life. In religion Islam, all worships are only performed for ALLAH Almighty alone, so as namaz. Namaz can be performed in Masjid with congregation and also at offices, educational institutes, homes etc. Muslims, from their hectic and busy routine take time out for performing five times namaz each day to direct their hearts towards ALLAH Almighty. The movements and postures of namaz include standing; sitting, bowing, and prostrating these all positions have also many medical benefits. Words of namaz include verses from the Quran, words of praise, gratefulness and thanks to ALLAH Almighty and also personal supplications.

Muslims who avoid and neglect the Namaz and do nothing to perform it should imagine that how they are going to face all the things on the Day of Resurrection. So being a Muslim we should not miss any namaz but we should always try to perform all namaz.

ZAKAT (OBLIGATORY CHARITY)

In the Holy Quran, giving charity or Zakaat to the poor and needy peoples is often mentioned hand-in-hand with daily obligatory namaz. Zakaat is central to core belief of Muslims that each and everything that we have comes from ALLAH Almighty, and is not to hoard neither its our property. We should always feel blessed for each and everything we have, and must be willing to give and share with those people who are less fortunate. Charity in Islam at any time is recommended, but for zakaat there is a set percentage required for those people who reach a certain minimum net worth that are described in Islam.

Zakah is a great system that helps the poor people in need. We can share some amount of our money for helping others instead of wasting it on useless activities and things that we really do not need. When the time of paying Zakat comes, we can give money to poor and needy Muslim families, who could spend that money for fulfilling their basic necessities, for instance. The happiness that a person would get from doing this would be much sweeter much greater than the enjoyment obtained from spending their money on unimportant or useless things. Zakat is the system ALLAH Almighty in which we collect our money, put it together and utilize our money to help poor and needy.

SAWM OR ROZA

Muslims observe fasting as a way to purify their soul, heart, mind, and body. In religion Islam, fasting helps us to feel about those who are less fortunate, helps us to organize our lives, and it also brings us closer to ALLAH Almighty in strengthened faith. Muslims fast throughout the Holy month of Ramadan; all physical and mental able Muslims must fast during the month of Holy Ramadan every year. The fast lasts from dawn to sunset for the whole month, during which time period Muslims abstains themselves from eating or drinking and all prohibited things. Muslims try to spend their most of the time in doing additional worship, abstain and refrain from gossip and bad talk, and share in charity and in friendship with others. Fast in Islam starts from fajr and all Muslims break the fast at Maghrib.

HAJJ (OBLIGATORY PILGRIMAGE)

Hajj is the annual pilgrimage that is obligatory to perform on every financial and physical able Muslims. Unlike the other “pillars” of religion Islam, the pilgrimage Hajj is obligatory to be done once in a lifetime. The Hajj pilgrimage is performed in the month of Zil-Hajj and it lasts for several days, and is only required to perform only on those Muslims who are financially and physically able to make the sacred journey.
