That's very good brother, but what we need here is first simple questions. Imagine yourself just returning from the Masjid after saying your shahadah. You have millions of questions and you're confused..saying.. 'what do I do now?..' so what we need is to tackle the basics and the practical steps. Everything else can be covered and read about later.

Good point. :j:


:sl: here goes.


Q.1-What are the 5 pillars of Islam?



SHAHADAH. This Pillar is believing and saying the words. “There is no god except Allah, Muhammad is the messenger of Allah”.


SALAH. This Pillar is praying five times a day. There are set prayers which Muslims should say, and all Muslims should face Mecca in Arabia when praying, and should pray on a prayer mat. People should wash before they pray. There are fixed movements, which include kneeling with the forehead placed on the ground in front. This expresses the servant status of the human being in relation to Allah.


ZAKAH. Each year, Muslims are supposed to give a fixed proportion of their savings for endeavours such as helping the poor. In this way, they believe that their wealth is “made pure”


FAST- Refraining from food and drink during the month of Ramadan during daylight hours.


HAJJ. This is making a pilgrimage to Mecca at least once in your life, if it can be afforded.[/b]
