About this Course
The Five Pillars of Islam are the core beliefs and practices of Islam. According to them, the Muslim’s obedience to Allah is measured. So, it’s our duty as Muslims to understand the rights we owe to Allah (SWT). Learning the 5 Pillars of Islam (arkān al-Islām أركان الإسلام; also arkān ad-dīn أركان الدين “pillars of the religion”) is mandatory to all Muslims; as they are the foundation of Muslim’s life. The first pillar is to testify that there is no god but Allah and that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah. The second is to establish the five daily prayers as long as you are alive. The third is to pay Zakat (alms) if your wealth reaches the limit specified for Zakat. The fourth pillar is to observe fasting in Ramadan as long as you are not sick or traveling. The fifth is to perform Hajj (pilgrimage) if you are financially and physically capable.
