The 5 Pillars of Islam
(Submission to Allah)
La ilaaha illa-llaah Muhammadur-Rasool ullah
“There is no true God but Allah 
Subhanahu wa ta’ala (High and Exalted is He)
and Mohammad Salal-layhu alayhi wasalam (Peace be upon him), is His last Messenger”.
Salaat (Prayer)
Perform the 5 mandatory prayers a day (Al-Fajr, Dhuhr, Asr, Mughrib & Isha). Allah
does not need one's prayer because He is free of all needs. Prayer is for our
immeasurable benefit, and the blessings are beyond all imagination.
Zakaat (Purification)
Obligatory giving to the poor. A very important pillar of Islam, it draws Allah’s blessings
and strengthens the relationship between the rich and the poor.
Sawm (Fasting)
Fast in the month of Ramadhan. Fasting is abstaining from eating, drinking, intimate
male / female contact and smoking from sunrise till sunset in this Holy Month.
Hajj (Pilgrimage)
One should perform this once in your lifetime. Muslims from all over the globe
assemble in Mecca before the Ka’bah in response to the call of Allah (S.W.T.).
  
Fundamental Articles of Imaan (‘Faith’)
A true Muslim Believes in..
One God - Allah (Subhanahu wa ta’ala), Supreme and Eternal, Infinite and All
Mighty, Merciful and Compassionate, Creator and Provider.
Allah’s Angels - purely spiritual and splendid beings ordered by Allah.
Allah’s Revealed Books - a Muslim believes in all scriptures and revelations of
God, as they were complete and in their original forms.
His Messengers - all Messengers were mortals, human beings, endowed with
Divine revelations and appointed by God to teach mankind.
The Last Day of Resurrection - everything we do, say, make, intend and think
are accounted for and kept in perfect records, they are brought up on this Day.
Al-Qadr
-
Allah has ordained everything. One must not believe that
anything but Allah controls the present or future (luck charms, horoscopes,
one’s own actions).
  
The Pillar of Salaat
The Second Pillar of Islam 
Prophet Mohammad (Peace be upon him)
said “Pray as you have seen me praying”
The conditions of Salaat
Acceptance of Islamic Faith - The one who believes in Allah is required to perform Salaat.
Niyyat - Intention in one’s heart to perform a particular prayer.
Cleanliness - This includes cleanliness of the worn clothes, the place of prayer and the body.
Purification - Performing Wudhu (ablution) before undertaking Salaat.
Concealing the body - A man’s body must be covered between the navel and the knees
and also the shoulders. Women must be clothed fully with opaque covering, revealing
no shape of figure or hair at all.
Facing the Qiblah - One must face the sacred Mosque of Makkah to pray. If the direction is unknown, it
can be guessed and the prayer will be accepted, insh’Allah (“if Allah wills it so”).
Observed times of performing Salaat - Prayers are to be observed at the prescribed times.
Neglected Prayers - Salaat that is forgotten must be done even when late (“Kadaah”), the longer one leaves
it the more the reward of the prayer diminishes.
Invalidation of Salaat (that requires repeating the entire prayer)
Talking deliberately, or to do any acts outside the movements of prayer.
Laughing, eating & drinking (residual food in the mouth).
Please Note: situations such praying on a
train

Salaat
Salaat has been practiced since the birth of Prophet Adam. Adam’s first words to Allah Subhanahu wa ta’ala were
Bismillah ir-Rahman ir-Rahim and as creation on©e again returns to the oneness of Allah our wo®ds shall be Bismillah
ir Rahman ir-Rahim. Prophet Adam shared his love this way and so shall we.
When you speak Allah listens, when you are silent Allah listens to the voice of your heart, the voice of the soul that
strives to free it’s self from the cages of your own lower desires. The inward importance of Salaat is of the inward
importance of the Qur’an.
If the oceans were ink and the trees writing instruments you would still not be able to write the entirety of Salaat. This
guide you hold in your hands is but a stepping stone of the basics, a starting point in the great mystical journey to the
golden Mosque within our hearts.
The best way to learn Salaat lies in instruction from a Muslim teacher, friend, or family member. In using this guide,
practice Salaat carefully, keep it next to you for reference as you perform the routines. Any part you are confused or
unsure about, you must ask a practicing Muslim.
The passing of the rites of Salaat is a time honoured Islamic tradition that passed from Allah to Prophet Adam to
Prophet Ibraham to Prophet Isa to Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon them) and to you.
In Salaat every muscle of the body joins the soul and the body in the worship and celebration of the glory of Allah.
Salaat is a matchless and unprecedented formula of meditation, spiritual devotion, moral elevation and physical
exercise, all combined; where one motion equals a thousand years of awakening.
Truly Salaat is one of the greatest gifts Allah provided to us. It is a blessing to be guided to the beauty and strength
that lies at the center of true prayer. For in Salaat the heart, the recitations, and body postures of the true believer, the
Muslim, the complete person, seek only one truth and it’s the eternal remembrance of
La ilaha illa Allah!
  
Deeds
Allah Subhanahu wa
ta’ala bestows love on those who believe and work deeds of righteousness,
He listens to those
who believe and do deeds
of righteousness
and gives them an increase of His
Bounty. He grants the
need of every creature. His bounties are
not closed to any one. This
is
the
reason
why
non-Muslims
who
desire
and
work
for
material
prosperity,
fame
and
other
needs
in
this
world
attain
success
in
this
temporary life.
They
receive
Allah’s
reward
for
any
righteous
deed
or
virtuous
act
done
in
this

If somebody intends to do a good deed and he does
not do it, then Allah will
write
for him a full good deed in his account with Him.
If
he intends

did it, then Allah
will

If
somebody intended
to do a bad deed and
he does
not do it, then Allah
will write a full good deed in his account, and
if he intended to do it (a bad deed) and actually did it, then Allah will write one bad deed (in his account)."

Judgement Day
Faith In The Last Day
..We believe that there will be another life after this short life..
When the determined term of this world comes to an end, Allah Subhanahu wa ta’ala will command an Angel
to sound the Trumpet and all mankind and other creatures will die, all the world will move towards
destruction, disintegration and everything will be annihilated.
Then the Angel will sound it again, when, behold, all dead since Prophet Adam will stand out of their graves.
Then, Allah will gather all people to account them for what they did. On the Day of Judgement everything will
be accounted. Anyone who has done an atom’s weight of good and an atom’s weight of evil shall see it. Allah
will take account everything on the scales of justice so that not a soul will be dealt with unjustly in the least.
Allah will reward all Muslims who follow the Qur’an and Sunnah and do good deeds solely for His Pleasure.
He will reward us insh'Allah, if not in this world, then surely in the Hereafter.

Qur’an, Sunnah and Hadith
The Qur'an is a Message from Allah to humanity. It was transmitted to us in a chain starting from the Almighty Himself to
the Angel Gabriel to the Prophet Muhammad. This message was given to the Prophet in pieces spanning 23 years (610 CE to
622 CE). The Prophet was 40 years old when the Qur'an began to be revealed to him, and he was 63 when the revelation was
complete. The language of the original message was Arabic, but it has been translated into many other languages.
The Qur'an is one leg of two which form the basis of Islam. The second leg is the Sunnah of the Prophet. What makes the
Qur'an different from the Sunnah is primarily its form. Unlike the Sunnah, the Qur'an is quite literally the Word of Allah,
whereas the Sunnah was inspired by Allah but the wording and actions are the Prophet's. The Qur'an has not been expressed
using any human's words. Its wording is letter for letter fixed by no one but Allah.
Prophet Muhammad was the final Messenger of Allah to humanity, and therefore the Qur'an is the last Message which Allah
has sent to us. Its predecessors such as the Torah, Psalms, and Gospels have all been superceded. It is an obligation and
blessing for all who hear of the Qur'an and Islam to investigate it and evaluate it for themselves. Allah has guaranteed that He
will protect the Qur'an from human tampering, and today's readers can find exact copies of it all over the world. The Qur'an
now is the same as the one revealed to the Prophet.
In Islam, the Arabic word Sunnah has come to denote the way Prophet Muhammad, lived his life. The Sunnah is the second
source of Islamic jurisprudence, the first being the Qur'an. Both sources are indispensable; one cannot practice Islam without
consulting both.
The Prophet used to teach the Sunnah to his companions in word and deed, and urged them to follow it, as he said in his
Hadith “Adhere to my Sunnah” and “Whoever neglects my Sunnah does not belong to me.” ‘Abd-Allaah ibn Mas’ood
narrated that the Messenger of Allah  said “There is no Prophet whom Allah sent to any nation before me, but he had
disciples from among his nation, and companions who followed his Sunnah and obeyed his commands.”
Some aspects of the Sunnah are waajib (obligatory) and some are mustahab (encouraged). The Muslim should follow the
Sunnah of the Prophet, whether it is waajib or mustahab, as long as it is proven in sound reports. The Sahaabah (companions
of the Prophet) used to spread the Sunnah of the Prophet among people and they called people to follow it.
The Arabic word Hadith (plural: Ahadith) is very similar to Sunnah, but not identical. A Hadith is a narration about the life of
the Prophet or what he approved, as opposed to his life itself, which is the Sunnah as already mentioned.
