If you, like me, were wondering just what the “5 Pillars of Islam” were, I finally came across them in an article on line, https://eng.kavkaz.memo.ru/printenc/engencyclopedia/id/592527.html , Islam in Russia.
The Muslim cult is based on the five basic requirements ("pillars of faith"): 1. Practicing the faith - pronouncing the shahadah (declaration of faith): "There is no God but Allah; Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah". 2. The five daily prayers (namaz or salah/salat). 3. The dawn-to-sunset fast during the month of Ramadan (uraza/roza or sawm). 4. Obligatory "purifying" alms (zakat/zakah). 5. The pilgrimage to Mecca (hajj).Editor's note: Conspicuously absent from the list: JIHAD.
