5 Pillar Myth

Preview Picture

In today's version of Islam, we hear that the religion has been built upon 5-Pillars which, if upheld, grant the person a very high chance of his/her succeeding in this worldly life and entering paradise...

The 5-Pillars are described as follows:

  1. Witnessing there is no god but GOD, and that Mohammed is His messenger;
  2. The daily Prayer/Salat - 5-times per day;
  3. The obligatory charity (zakat) amounting to 2.5% per annum;
  4. Fasting the month of Ramadhan;
  5. Pilgrimage to Mecca at least once.
