What are the pillars of islam?

What are the pillars of islam?

The pillars of islam are:

The belief ( Imaan ) that there is no God to be worshiped except Allaah (the one God) and that
Muhammad
(peace and blessings of God be upon him) is his messenger.
Performing the prescribed prayers ( Salaat ), five times a day.
Fasting ( Siyaam ) once a year, from sunrise to sunset throughout the entire month of Ramadaan.
Charity ( Zakaat ) which is paid to the poor and needy once every year.
Hajj, which is the pilgrimage to Mecca once in a lifetime if one is physically able and can afford it
financially.

Pillars are part of a building. The building in this case is the perfect human being who cares and protects
the rights of all creations and fellow humans, thus establishing a society in which truth and justice and
peace is supreme.
