Five Pillars of Islam

What are the 5 pillars of islam

A happiness that is very expensive which can not be measured by any of the material world. Therefore it is proper for us to learn about Islam, moreover, the core part of the pillars of the religion of Islam is that any happiness we can achieve.

لَقَدْ جَاءكُمْ رَسُولٌ مِّنْ أَنفُسِكُمْ عَزِيزٌ عَلَيْهِ مَا عَنِتُّمْ حَرِيصٌ عَلَيْكُم بِالْمُؤْمِنِينَ رَؤُوفٌ رَّحِيمٌ
"It has come to you a Messenger from your people alone, severe felt by her suffering, wanted (faith and salvation) you, again very loving mercy towards the believers." (QS. At Taubah: 128)


Islam is one religion which is believed to be descended from the sky. Islam in upholding the above five pillars / case. As has been narrated by Ibn Umar that the Prophet once said, "Islam is established on five pillars: 1. Testify that there is no god but Allah and I testify that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah, 2. Establish Prayer, 3. accomplishing give charity, 4. Fasting during Ramadan, 5. hajj ". The fifth pillar / the case stands firmly on a foundation or a foundation that became the foundation of each case, namely Faith.


1. Two sentences creed.


A testimony that no god but Allah and Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah is the result of a search. Through a reflection on the nature and occurrence including ourselves, can give rise to a belief in God. Also through observation of the natural activities and the signs that every day we can meet. Both at a time when the day and in the night. Natural provide information to us about the "form" of his God. Natural and also provide the "pressure" to our hearts to not deny about a very big role. Much bigger than we imagine about the magnitude of nature itself.

Rotation of the earth and its movement around the sun is evidence of the strength of a very, very large. In addition to the millions of stars scattered in the sky that is visible at night and the rain coming down in time, the signs of God can also be seen on ourselves. From the start the creation of everything in pairs, until the occurrence itself. But most of all the signs are not strong enough to affect the human heart in its form beliefs about God. Only self "care" of himself that always will try to convince him about God.

The news about the signs of Allah in nature can also be accessed from a book "hint" of Al Qur’an. A book that contains the words of God and explain about many things related to life. That the difference between the act of right and wrong. Who also showed us to pay attention to the many natural phenomena that can be used as food for thought about there and the power of God for all that exists in nature. whereas the estuary of all reflections and thoughts that do is a belief. Which will lead us to a testimony of God's will tauhid and apostolic prophet Muhammad. as messengers who receive revelation and present it to the entire community.

2. Prayers.


Results of faith is obedience or adherence in order to implement. And Allah has obliged the Prophet. on the implementation of the prayer. Which means also an obligation for all Muslims to carry out prayers. And this applies to all Muslims who have reached the age of puberty. Both men and women. Five times a day. Number of cycles entirely as many as 17 cycles. Not including sunnah prayers ordered by the Prophet. as complement the obligatory prayers. And prayers into something that obligation should not be abandoned.

What for ? As the realization of a conviction, testimony and obedience. And a belief in the words of the Prophet that the Prayer is the pillar of religion, then whoever her prayers means to enforce it and whoever left the prayer meant he had to knock it down. Also an information from the Qur'an, that the real prayer could prevent indecency and evil. Hopefully, by praying we can avoid something prohibited by religion. And will stimulate us to always do good, both for ourselves and for others.
Prayer is a means to remember God. Remembering God is an act of great value to the worship of others. Because of worship that are not accompanied by the remembrance of God is something that is futile. No matter how much we pray, if no "remember" God, its value becomes imperfect. Therefore we all must constantly strive to always remember Allah, whether standing, sitting or lying down. So that later we can classify as servants who always remember to the Lord.

اتْلُ مَا أُوحِيَ إِلَيْكَ مِنَ الْكِتَابِ وَأَقِمِ الصَّلَاةَ ۖ إِنَّ الصَّلَاةَ تَنْهَىٰ عَنِ الْفَحْشَاءِ وَالْمُنْكَرِ ۗ وَلَذِكْرُ اللَّهِ أَكْبَرُ ۗ وَاللَّهُ يَعْلَمُ مَا تَصْنَعُونَ﴿٤٥﴾
"Read what has been revealed to you the Book (the Qur'an) and establish salat. Indeed prayer restrains from (deeds) cruel and unjust. And remembrance of God (prayer) is greater (primacy of the other worship). And Allah knows what you do ". QS. Al Ankabuut 45.

Besides some other reason, prayer is a means to interact with God. If we pray facing the Qibla, which is between ourselves and Qiblah is God. Prayers also as a means to request a variety of our desires to God. We stand in prayer is an obedience to obey the order. Bowing we do is a form submission, respect and willingness to run all command. Prostration us is a form of resignation in devoted only to Him. And we sit is an expression of the desire and the words of our testimony and the manifestation of our blessings to the Prophet.

3.Fasting in Ramadan.


An obligation which is intended not only for people who live at this particular time, but also to the people who lived long ago. Why ? God wants to give a chance to people to change their quality. Of a person who is always doing damage and sin becomes a servant of God who always do good during the rest of his life. God through fasting media provides the opportunity for us to choose which path we want to take. That is a meaningful way of life or a way of life that is not meaningful at all. Both for others and for himself.

Fasting is a means. Where those earlier times many of which rely on fast means to be able to achieve what he wants. By asking for something to the Creator and then fasted for some time, many of their desires fulfilled. Just like us, if we want something that is related to quality of life, we too can use the media to achieve by fasting. Relying on the power of God we can ask to be turned itself into pious. So we also have the opportunity to have a high degree on the human eye is also noble in the sight of God Almighty.

If we believe in Allah and always meet the call of prayer and strive to always be close to God through the sunnah prayers, especially the night prayer, God willing, what we want in the form of faith will be fulfilled. Another requirement is to never put aside what had been instructed in the Qur'an and the hadith of the Prophet. Give charity or infaq should be a "pleasure" uninterrupted. Do not refuse to give alms to beggars who come into our homes. Frequently fasted and never ignore Ramadan fasting, because this blessed month only comes once a year.

In addition to the many blessings that come down, mercy and forgiveness will we get if we are truly fasting. In fact we will get freedom from the heat of the fire of hell. A dream that might come true if we are truly in the fasting in the holy month of Ramadan. God made as the holy month of Ramadan. With all the privileges that have been granted by God in the month of Ramadan, then anyone who neglect means has disobey God. God also made a night in the month of Ramadan that if we pray at night the reward is proportional to worship someone for a thousand months or 83 years. That "Laylat al Qadr" which is phenomenal.


4. Give charity.


A command almost certainly contain a specific purpose, but if the order comes from God no other word to abort the command. And only God who has the best intentions for his servants. A command that is very sincere. Which does not contain any such tendency that generally we do. Only sincerity and our sincerity in issuing give charity that is the requirement to be Allah's approval of God to sacrifice our property.

Give charity is the form of our sincerity in accepting God as our Lord. And as an expression of sincerity in sacrifice some treasure we have. Because essentially all belong to God, so that if God wants us proper to give it. And certainly one day God will give the dressing a much larger and better than what we have to spend in the form of give charity. Because in essence God does not need our charity. God only wants our obedience test by giving some treasure we have, then "returned" again in the amount that we never expected.

Vertically, the expenditure of give charity was only a test of our sincerity of God, but in a horizontal relationship, namely a relationship with fellow humans are very noble value. Ie the value of humanity. Human values to build a care for those who need a helping hand from those who have excess wealth. And our concern for others is a form of awareness of the mutual need of a human being with another human being. Where between the rich and the poor is only separated by faith. Not by a material that essentially only deposited God.

5. Hajj.


The fifth pillar of Islam is the implementation of the pilgrimage. An obligation and exams to Muslims who have excess wealth from God to implement. As a complement of worship of Muslims, Hajj is also a test of the physical and material sacrifices and sincerity to perform a religious procession ever undertaken by the Prophet. As well as a test of the sincerity in accepting Islam as a religion of choice. Where the Hajj is a worship which also contains the meaning trace or "follow" the pilgrimage of the Prophet. Which can also be used as a mirror readiness to accept themselves as servants of the same with the other servants. From the start of the clothes worn, the chronology of eligibility and sequence and places the same between pilgrims with each other.

Islam never burden the people. From start to read the confession of faith that does not require a fee, with a prayer that does not require a particular outfit that expensive, quite close to the clean and simple clothes that can be wrapped around most of genitalia. Alms were no great determination nominal, so a small percentage of zakat and fasting were only armed with sincerity in the run. All of it is a requirement that the lightest for a worship to God. Because it does not require a wide range of food for every time offerings.

But if God gives sustenance of plenty, we tested again with a worship that not only takes a physical sacrifice, but also with a little sacrifice material. And only with that of a Muslim who has the physical ability and the excess material can enhance worship. In contrast to those who do not have the capacity excess material, the pilgrimage if only in dreams. Whereas in the liver are eager to be able to carry it out. But God willed each other to servant.

That is the fifth pillar of Islam. If we can stand on four pillars alone is enough to give us strength as a creature of worship. But if we could manage ourselves to get one pillar again, God willing, we will be able to put it right in the middle of the other pillars. Which will make us more Pharmaceutics religious buildings, until the storm which is composed of the army of demons and jinn would not be able to change or shaking our faith. And die in Islam becomes an option that will not be negotiable. Hopefully Allah made it easier for us all to manifest themselves into a servant who will actually die in a state of submission to Allah alone. Ameen.
