The five core values are known as the pillars of Islam
« on: April 05, 2022, 10:52:51 AM »

Shahada
This is the first and arguably most important pillar because it is when a person declares their belief in the one true God, Allah (SWT).

Salat
Those who follow Islam must make every effort to pray five times every day in order to cement their dedication to Allah (SWT) and strengthen their bond to Him.

Zakat
One of Allah’s (SWT) key teachings is that we must give charity to those less fortunate, and that is lamented in the third pillar known as Zakat.

Sawm
This is the pillar from which Ramadan is derived as it means ‘to fast’. Ramadan is observed by Muslims in order to target this pillar.

Hajj
All able-bodied Muslims are expected to make at least pilgrimage to Mecca – the location where the first words of Allah were revealed to the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).
