There are certain rules and guidelines defined in the Quran and Hadith. These guidelines provide a fundamental approach towards understanding Islamic laws in depth. Islamic laws are a pre-set of defined laws stated in the Quran and the approach towards its implementation is further defined in the Hadith. These laws are prevalent 1400 years ago and are still applicable in today’s world. The Muslims need to follow these rules in order to have a prosperous life and should base all his decisions according to the principles defined by Islam.
Muslim Sharia is based on the five pillars of Islam. The first pillar of Islam clearly states that there is no God but Allah and there is no one comparable to Him. This gives us the concept of Tauheed or Oneness of Allah. It tells us the supremacy of the Almighty and every Muslim should first have firm belief in the concept of Oneness of Allah. This provides the main foundation on which the building of Islam rests. Associating partners with Allah is the biggest sin anyone can do and it needs to be corrected in faith that Allah is the sole Creator of this universe. When once a Muslim believes in the concept of Tauheed then comes the act of worship to prove that a Muslim submits his will to Allah.
The act of worship which holds the highest rank among all sorts of worship is the Salah or Prayer. Salah is the most important act of worship which a Muslim needs to perform five times a day. By offering fives times prayer, a Muslim proves his loyalty to Allah. He only considers Allah to be the one who should be worshipped. Allah has made Salah obligatory for all Muslims in order to give them a unique identity. Only Salah can differentiate between a Muslim and a non Muslim. It also provides the key to Paradise where everyone would be joyful and happy. When a Muslim fulfils the duty of offering Salah, he should also fast the whole month of Ramadan.
During this holy month, the Muslim keeps a fast for Allah from dawn to dusk to show his submission to Allah. Next comes Zakat or Charity to be given for Allah. Allah has made it obligatory for all Muslims to fix a certain portion of their wealth to the poor people so in this way nobody is left hungry and deprived of basic necessities of life. Hajj or Pilgrimage is the last pillar of Islam to be performed once in a lifetime if his health and finances permit.
Muslim Sharia is a wide chapter which also covers other aspects. Muslim Sharia Council is an advisory service for Muslims who have queries related to Islamic laws. These queries are answered in the light of Quran and Hadith so that Muslims can benefit from them easily.
