Before we get started

Whether you are Muslim or not , I think it’s very important to note some basic facts about the most misunderstood religion in the world.

1. It was sent down by Allah (God) to the Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.). It literally means peace. It is complete submission to the will of Allah(S.W.T)

2. There are five pillars in Islam

*First is Iman(faith).To be Muslim, you have to believe that Allah is One and that there is no other deity worthy of worship except Him

And that Muhammad (s.a.w.) is His Messenger

*Muslims   pray five times a day.This is Salah

* Muslims fast one whole month in a year- in the holy month of Ramadan

*Muslims give a 2.5% of their annual wealth to the poor. This is called Zakah

*For those who can afford it, it’s compulsory to perform Hajj( pilgrimage) to Makkah at least once in a lifetime.

3.The Qur’an was sent down to guide mankind and is the Holy Book.
