RAMADAN - Five Pillars of Islam - 2012

Five Pillars of Islam (Arabic, arkan), five prescribed ritual duties whose performance mainstream Muslims view as central to their faith. These are: (1) pronouncing the confession of faith (kalima or shahada); (2) performing the five daily prayers (salat); (3) fasting during the month of Ramadan (saum); (4) paying the alms tax (zakat); (5) performing, at least once in life, the major pilgrimage to Mecca (hajj). In most Islamic counties - with the exception, for instance, of the Wahhabi state of Saudi Arabia - Muslims are not punished for failing to perform these duties. In many Islamic states, however, any public denial by a Muslim of the validity, importance, or centrality of the five pillars is generally considered an act of apostasy that is punishable.

The salat, also known as namaz in Iran, India, and Turkey, refers to the five obligatory daily prayers. These are only performed after a ritual ablution and in a special order at set times of the day: before sunrise; at noon; in the mid-afternoon; immediately after sunset, and before midnight. Mainstream Shiites consider it permissible to join the noon and afternoon prayers together and also the sunset and midnight prayers so that they need only pray three times a day. Praying in Islam is also associated with a specified set of postures; that is, standing, bowing, and prostrating.

The zakat or alms tax is levied annually on the crops, livestock, precious metals, and cash of all those living above subsistence and whose debts do not exceed their assets. In theory it is to be collected on behalf of, and then distributed to, the poor.

The hajj is the “greater” of the two pilgrimages to Mecca. All healthy adult Muslim men and women should perform it at least once in their lifetime, so long as they have sufficient means and safe transport. Unlike the lesser pilgrimage (umra), it is only possible to make the hajj at a fixed time of the year, during the first half of the month of Dhu al-Hijja. Those who perform the hajj can use the honorific title “Hajji”.
