An Overview of the Five Pillars of Islam

Saturday, May 3rd, 2014

 

f7

By Tariq Aljadidi

 

In the name of Allah to most compassionate the most merciful

 

As the Prophet Mohammed Peace be upon Him (PBUH) said “Islam is based on five”.

The Pillars are as follow;

1. Shahadah – Testimony of faith

 

The Shahadah is to testify witness and affirm that there is no deity worthy of worship except Allah.  This means that we only obey; worship Allah, as well as only seeking help from Allah. We have no idols, objects, animals, humans, etc… Besides Allah.

Note: Allah may forgive all sins apart from association (Associating partner along side Allah)

The next part of the Shahadah is to testify witness and affirm that Mohammed is the prophet of Allah.  This statement ensures that Muslims do not elevate Prophet Mohammed Peace be upon Him (PBUH)to more that a prophet, like other religions.

 

 

2. Salah – Prayer

Allah (SWT) command us in various places is the holy Quran to establish prayer. And Prophet Mohammed Peace be upon Him (PBUH)said “pray as you have seen me pray”.  Muslims prayer five times a day from dawn till Dawn.  By praying 5 times a day we a keeping a connection with Allah throughout the day and as Allah says “Indeed prayer keeps us away from Mischief and Evil” along with a warning Ah, woe unto worshippers – Who are heedless of their prayer; verse 4-5 Surah Al Maun.

Salah is the second most important pillar after the Shahadah.  On the day of judgement Allah (SWT) will look at our prayers and if there are any short falls will then look at other deeds so that he can grant us Jennah (Heaven). We must ensure we pray the five obligatory prayer and offer additional prayers (Sunnah) to make up for any short falls.

3. Zakat – Charity

Allah (SWT) has command us to give alms/charity to the poor this is 2.5% of excess wealth.  This will ensure no one in the community as a whole live in poverty.  If all Muslims were to pay Zakat then poverty would not exist.  This is from Allah wisdom.  It is a Muslims duty to look after those less fortunate than themselves.

4. Sawn – Fasting

Muslims fast the holy month of Ramadhan, from dawn to dusk.  Allah say in Surat Al Baqarah verses 183- 184”

O ye who believe! Fasting is prescribed to you as it was prescribed to those before you that ye may (learn) self-restraint.― (183) (Fasting) for a fixed number of days; but if any of you is ill or on a journey, the prescribed number (should be made up) from days later. For those who can do it (with hardship) is a ransom, the feeding of one that is indigent. But he that will give more of his own free-will ―it is better for him, and it is better for you that ye fast, if ye only knew. (184)”.

By fasting we do not only restrain from eating and drinking but smoking, back biting, cheating, lying etc…  So that we attain taqwah (God consciousness)

Taqwah is to be aware of your actions and to ensure you have the correct intention (all we do is to please Allah and in accordance to the Quran and the Sunnah (the ways and sayings on the Prophet Mohammed Peace be upon Him (PBUH) along with this, is to fear Allah this will keep us away from evil as we are aware that Allah is watching us and that we will be accountable for our action

During this blessed month the gate of heaven are open and the gates to hell are closed with the devil (Shaytan) chained in it, so that he is unable to cause mischief.  Lesson should be learnt from Ramadhan and the good deeds that was perform and the bad deeds that we restrained from carried forward through out the years.

5. Hajj (Pilgrimage)

Hajj is to make the pilgrimage to Makkah if you are able to. This is to follow in the foot steps of our prophet Ibrahim (AS). This is a very important pillar as if performed correctly all our sin will be forgiven as if we are a new born baby.  We dedicate the whole time to Allah during the pilgrimage in worship, Quran, remembering Allah and asking for forgiveness.

This if a very emotional journey and Muslims look forward to making the pilgrimage as this was the place also known as the house of Allah and we all face forward Makkah 5 times a day the offer Salah. Makkah is the holiest of sites for Muslims and prayer offered at Makkah are multiplied 100 thousand times.

All that is right is from Allah and anything that is wrong is from me

Orientalism, Misinformation and Islam

Orientalism, Misinformation and Islam

Abû Imân cAbd al-Rahmân Robert Squires

In the Name of God, the All-Merciful, the Compassionate

Any open-minded person embarking on a study of Islam, especially if using books written in European languages, should be aware of the seemingly inherent distortions that permeate almost all non-Muslim writings on Islam.  At least since the Middle Ages, Islam has been much maligned and severely misunderstood in the West.  In the last years of the Twentieth Century, it does not seem that much has changed even though most Muslims would agree that progress is being made.  I feel that an elegant summary of the West’s ignorance of Islam and the motives of Orientalism are the following words by the Swiss journalist and author, Roger Du Pasquier:

The West, whether Christian or dechristianised, has never really known Islam.  Ever since they watched it appear on the world stage, Christians never ceased to insult and slander it in order to find justification for waging war on it. It has been subjected to grotesque distortions the traces of which still endure in the European mind.  Even today there are many Westerners for whom Islam can be reduced to three ideas: fanaticism, fatalism and polygamy.  Of course, there does exist a more cultivated public whose ideas about Islam are less deformed; there are still precious few who know that the word Islam signifies nothing other than ‘submission to God’.  One symptom of this ignorance is the fact that in the imagination of most Europeans, Allah refers to the divinity of the Muslims, not the God of the Christians and Jews; they are all surprised to hear, when one takes the trouble to explain things to them, that ‘Allah‘ means ‘God’, and that even Arab Christians know him by no other name.
     Islam has of course been the object of studies by Western orientalists who, over the last two centuries, have published an extensive learned literature on the subject.  Nevertheless, however worthy their labours may have been , particularly in the historical and and philological fields, they have contributed little to a better understanding of the Muslim religion in the Christian or post-Christian milieu, simply because they have failed to arouse much interest outside their specialised academic circles.  One is forced also to concede that Oriental studies in the West have not always been inspired by the purest spirit of scholarly impartiality, and it is hard to deny that some Islamicists and Arabists have worked with the clear intention of belittling Islam and its adherents.  This tendency was particularly marked for obvious reasons in the heyday of the colonial empires, but it would be an exaggeration to claim that it has vanished without trace.
     These are some of the reasons why Islam remains even today so misjudged by the West, where curiously enough, Asiatic faiths such as Buddhism and Hinduism have for more than a century generated far more visible sympathy and interest, even though Islam is so close to Judaism and Christianity, having flowed from the same Abrahamic source.  Despite this, however, for several years it has seemed that external conditions, particularly the growing importance of the Arab-Islamic countries in the world’s great political and economic affairs, have served to arouse a growing interest of Islam in the West, resulting for some in the discovery of new and hitherto unsuspected horizons. (From Unveiling Islam, by Roger Du Pasquier, pages 5-7)

The feeling that there is a general ignorance of Islam in the West is shared by Maurice Bucaille, a French doctor, who writes:

The Great Physicians of Islamic Medicine

Wednesday, November 20th, 2013

Husain F. Nagamia

Source: Islamic Medicine History and Current Practice

Picture

The era of Islamic Medicine produced some very famous and notable physicians. These physicians were not only responsible to get all the existing information on Medicine of the time together but add to this knowledge by their own astute observations, experimentation and skills. Many of them were skilled in medical writing and produced encyclopedic works which became standard texts and reference works for centuries.

With the coming of European Rennaicanse they formed the basis on which the European authors gained insight into the medicine of the ‘ancients’ or early Greek authors whose works were only preserved in Arabic.

Fighting misconceptions associated with Muslim headscarf, Muslim students at California State University arranged a Hijab handout to their colleagues to educate them about criticism and negative image drawn by media over the past decade.
“The goal was to teach what Islam really is because there’s so much negativity going around about Muslim people who are portrayed so negatively in the media,” Amina Hasan, organizer for the Muslim Student Association (MSA), told Daily 49ER, the university’s news website, on Sunday, December 2.
