Pillars of Islam
KALIMA - The First Pillar of Islam Print E-mail

LA-ILAHA ILLA-ALLAH,


Islam first requirement is BELIEF and then action. The Islamic Creed, the first pillar of Islam, LA-ILAHA-ILLA-ALLAH, MUHAMMADUR-RASUL-ULLAH. (i.e. There is no god but Allah, Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah). "A believer is like a brick for another believer, the one supports the other." (Sahi-Muslim)

The result of loss of believe in Allah was that he fell a prey to worldly temptations and sexual pleasures which led to moral degradation of the whole society.

On the last Day, the biggest loser will be the hypocrite who, when he goes to one party talks in one voice and when to other party, talks in another voice. (Sahi-Muslim)

Islam started from Prophet Adam (alai salam) and attained perfection with the last Prophet Muhammad , "This day have I perfected your religion for you, completed My favor upon you and have chosen for you Islam as your Religion."(Al-Quran, 5:3)(the last verse on the Mount of Blessing)

"If anyone desires a religion other than Islam, never will it be accepted of him."(Al-Quran, 3:85)

"There is no force in religion."(Al-Quran, 2:256)

"Abrahim was neither a Jew nor a Christian but an upright Muslim."(Al-Quran, 3:67)

PRAYER-SALAT-NAMAAZ-The Second Pillar of Islam Print E-mail

INTRODUCTION


“Verily Salaat prevents one from shameful and forbidden things; and the remembrance of Allah is the greatest”   (QURAN 29:45)

“Salaat is the best of all that has been ordained by Allah” (HOLY PROPHET P.B.U.H)

Salaat occupies a lofty position in the religion of Islam. Its performance is the foremost duty of a Muslim after he has brought faith in the Oneness of Allah Ta’ala and the prophethood of his Holy Messenger, Nabee Muhammad (P.B.U.H). It is a most special act of Divine worship which he is called upon to perform five times daily without fail. The pages of the Quran and Hadith are replete with injunctions which enjoin Salaat on us. It is of such paramount importance that it has been described as a pillar and foundation of faith.

Salaat, if offered with a sincere heart, proper devotion and mental concentration, contributes to the cleansing of the heart, ridding it of the impurities of sin and ultimately transforming one’s entire life. It engenders love for piety and promotes fear of Allah in man. Islam has laid greater emphasis on the institution of Salaat with regularity. Hence after Imaan, Salaat is the bedrock of Islam.

FASTING - The Fourth Pillar of Islam Print E-mail


RAMADAN - What does not break fast

In Ramadan-i-Mubarak during the fasting the following actions do not break the fast:
  • If one forgets that one is fasting and eats, drinks or has sexual intercourse, or has a nocturnal emission while asleep or emits semen involuntarily by looking [at something sex ] (though it is totally haram to see such things)
  • If one applies tincture of iodine or some ointment [even if their tint or smell is noticed in one's saliva or urine].
  • If one vomits a mouthful involuntarily or vomits a little voluntarily.
  • If water goes into ones ear or dust, smoke or a fly goes into one's throat through one's mouth or nose involuntrarily or if one cannot prevent the smoke of others cigarettes from going into one's mouth and nose.
  • If after rinsing one's mouth one swallows the wetness remaining in one's mouth together with one's saliva.
  • If one puts some medicine in one's eye or even if one feels its taste in one's throat.
  • If a fasting person swallows his saliva, his fast will not break. Bleeding from an injury in the mouth from taking a tooth out, or blood coming from the stomach to the mouth does not break a fast or an ablution. When one spits out or swallows his blood coming from mouth, if the saliva is greater than the blood, that is if the saliva is yellow in color, his fast is still not broken. If a mouthful comes to the mouth and goes out of the mouth, both are broken. It is seen that, when a tooth is extracted if there is much bleeding, the fast is not broken when one spits it out. When one is not fasting, one's ablution is not broken when one swallows it. Neither of the two is broken if the blood is less than the amount of saliva.
  • Using antimony (surma) or cosmetics for one's beared, moustaches, face, smelling flowers, musks or Lotions will not break one's fast.

VIRTUES OF SEHRI


Hazrat Anas (Radiallah anhu) narrates that Rasulallah (SalallahoAlaiheWasalam) Said: "Eat Sehri (food to be taken a little before dawn during the fasting month of Ramadan) that Sehri brings prosperity" (Bukhari, Muslim, tirmizi)

ZAKAT - The Third Pillar of Islam Print E-mail

DEFINITION OF ZAKAAT

Zakaat literally means to increase. Technically it means to purify one's possession of wealth by distributing a prescribed amount which has to be given to the poor as a fundamental Ibaadat.

THE VIRTUES OF ZAKAAT

Allah Ta'ala says in the Qur'aan:

"The parable of those who spend their wealth in the way of Allah is that of a grain of corn. It grows seven ears and each ear has a hundred grains. Allah increases manifold to whom He pleases." (Baqarah 261)


The Qur'aan states that wealth increases abundantly by giving zakaat. And the reward increases according to the sincerity of the Niyyah. In another Aayah Allah says:

"Allah destroys wealth obtained from interest and will increase deeds of charity." (Baqarah 276)

 

"The shaytaan threatens you with poverty and bids you to coin evil and Allah promises you His forgiveness and bounties and Allah is Bountiful All-Knowing." (Baqarah 268)


There is no Barakat and benefit from interest and it will either decrease or vanish altogether, whereas wealth spent in the way of Allah increases manifold.

BENEFITS OF ZAKAAT

It is stated in the Hadeeth that by giving zakaat the following benefits are derived:

  • Gaining the pleasure of Allah;
  • Increase in wealth;
  • Protection from losses;
  • Obtaining Allah's forgiveness and blessings;
  • Safety from calamities;
  • Protection from the wrath of Allah and from a bad death;
  • The Zakaat will provide shelter on the Day of Judgement;
  • Security from seventy misfortunes;
  • It will serve as a shield from the fires of Jahannam;
  • It contributes to longevity;
  • It saves from fear and grief.

HAJJ - The Fifth Pillar of Islam Print E-mail

 


 

The Hajj Pilgrimage, is one of the Pillars and fundamentals of Islam. It is the completion of surrender and the day of perfection of the religion of Islam. It was on this day that Almighty Allah revealed the following message to the Ummah of His beloved Prophet, Sayyiduna Rasulullah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam):  "Today, I have perfected your religion for you and completed my grace upon you and approved Islam as your religion."

We must understand that the basis of all actions is intention and intention without doubt bears fruit if there is sincerity, and Hajj, which is an integral part of Islam, will therefore require those who perform it to have sincerity.

When the person intends undertaking Hajj, he severs all ties with his family and home. This is a reminder to him also of the journey he will have to undertake for the Hereafter.

As for provisions, the intending pilgrim must ensure that they have been acquired in the Halaal (permissable) manner. If a person desires to take a lot for the journey, then let him remember the journey to the Hereafter which is longer and more difficult and that the best provision for that journey will be Taqwa (Piety).

As for transport, when the pilgrim acquires transport he should give thanks to the Almighty Creator and at the same time remember the transport that will carry him the grave and the next world, namely his Kaffan (Shroud).

As for leaving home, the intending pilgrim should know that he is now bound for the House of Allah. He is on a journey unlike any other. He should bear in mind where he is heading and whom he intends to visit. He should also have hope that his Hajj will be accepted, not because of the difficulties faced, but because of the trust that he has in His Creator.

When wearing the Ihraam, the pilgrim is aware that he has heard the summons of Almighty Allah. He should possess fear and hope when considering the acceptance of his Hajj. This fear should be the fear of Almighty Allah and hope in His Mercy.
