What are the central beliefs of Islam, and how are they reflected in the "Five Pillars” (McInerney, 2003)?
Of course, you'll need to read "Five Pillars" in order to make the connections.
Let us know what you come up with.
The 5 pillars are:
1.salah (prayer) --- they pray 5 times a day
2.zakaat (charity) --- There is a specific amount they have to give based on their gold.
3.sawm (fasts) --- They have the month of Ramadan to fast in.
4.shahada --- beleif in one God and Prophet
5.hajj (holy pilgrimage) --- It's actually the time of hajj right now.
Hope this helped :MC
