The Five Pillars of Islam

Miniaci Performing Arts Center

The five pillars of Islam are perhaps the most fundamental characteristics of Islam which frames every Muslim’s life. Approximately 1.2 billion people in the world are Muslim, which is 22 percent of the world’s population. The five pillars of Islam is the foundation that upholds all Muslims. The pillars are woven with faith, prayer, fasting, charity and a pilgrimage. These five, of perhaps the most fundamental characteristics of this dynamic religion is, Shahada or the Declaration of Faith, Salat or Prayer, Saum or Fasting, Zakat or Charity and finally Hajj or the Pilgrimage to Mecca. These five pillars provide not only a fundamental foundation for the religion of Islam but in essence it is the very character and soul of a Muslim’s pious life.
