Islam defines the complete code of living. The foundations of Islam have been laid 1400 years ago and have a huge impact in a Muslim’s life even today. The rules defined by Islam have never gone obsolete and are applicable in today’s life and even in future too. These laws have been defined till this world lasts. Muslim Sharia is the name given to all the Islamic laws which are defined by Islam and should be practiced by every believing person. It should not only be practiced by an individual but also the whole Muslim society. This way, there would be peace and tranquillity in the whole world.
Now the question arises that what are these laws which form the foundation of Islam. The most important rules which are also known as pillars of Islam are the fundamental laws implemented by every Muslim. These five pillars form the basis of Islam on which the whole religion depends. The first and the most important pillar of Islam is known as Tauheed or Oneness of Allah. This pillar of Islam has immense significance.
Every Muslim needs to first believe in the Oneness of Allah then he would be truly called a Muslim. This forms the basis of Islam and on this pillar the whole building of Islam rests. In order to be a true Muslim, one needs to have firm belief in the Uniqueness of Allah. When once a Muslim develops firm belief in the first pillar then comes the actual practice which proves that a Muslim believes in one God. The practicing pillars of Islam determine that a Muslim bears witness to the Oneness of Allah.
The Salah or Prayer is the second and most important practicing pillar of Islam. The prayer is the true demonstration of believing in one God. It is to worship just one God and no other God except Him. The whole procedure of Salah is defined very systematically and every Muslim follows the same pattern. Next comes fasting or Saum after prayer. Fasting is practiced in the holy month of Ramadan and it is a way to show Allah that a person is truly loyal and submissive to the will of Allah. Fasting makes a Muslim pure from inside and his body and soul is refreshed. After fasting, Zakat or charity has its importance.
A portion of a Muslim’s wealth according to his status is given away to the poor so that there is no one needy left. Last pillar of Islam is Hajj or Pilgrimage. It is performed once in a lifetime and only if the health and financial status of a Muslim permits him to do it.
