Allah has made these five arkans obligatory for Muslims so that their life is structured in the best Islamic way and they are near to Allah in their daily life matters too, and their faith keeps on refreshing.

Five Pillars of Islam

1. SHAHADAH

It is the first pillar in which a Muslim confirms his faith in ALLAH. It means the verbal declaration by saying “there is no god but ALLAH and MUHAMMAD is the messenger of ALLAH.” This declaration makes a Muslim the firm believer of only ALLAH and also makes him realize that his life is meant to worship ALLAH and to obey and serve for the sake of ALLAH.

2. SALAH OR PRAYER

The second pillar is praying to God five times a day. By this practice, a Muslims comes closer to Allah during his daily life routine and praise HIM.

3. ZAKAT

Zakat is made obligatory for Muslims to make them believe that their money and property is not theirs. It is with them because Allah wants to give them. Every sahib-e-nisab Muslim have to give a part of their wealth to the needy people.

4. FASTING

Fasting for 29 or 30 days is also an obligatory duty for Muslims which purify their heart, mind, and soul. Every Muslim who is not sick have to fast for the sake of ALLAH every year in the month of Ramadan.

5. HAJJ

Unlike other pillars of Islam which are set to be done on a regular basis, Hajj is made obligatory only on those who are physically and financially afford to do it. And it is to be done once in a lifetime at least in the month of Zul Hajj.
