The 2nd pillar of Islam categorizes Muslims as devout subjects of Allah. In several areas of the Holy Quran; Allah [Al-Malik] is stating to "Establish Salah" the true undertone of each Muslims is his or her ability to be steadfast on their 5 daily prayers.
The Holy Quran was the last time that Allah [Al-Wadud] spoke directly to Mankind. Our task in this life is to read & understand the virtues, the morals, seek enlightenment and most importantly seek HIS guidance thru this magnificent book.
As devout Muslims we adhere to the core principles of this beautiful faith. One major aspect of this faith is to study the complete life of Prophet Muhammad [Peace & Blessings Be Upon Him]. Make it a goal to learn his seerah and orchestrate his sunnah in your life.
The 5 Pillars of Islam :
Shahadah | Salah | Fasting
Zakah | Hajj
O you who believe, respond to Allah and to the Messenger when He calls you to what will bring you to life. Know that Allah intervenes between a person and his heart and that you will be gathered to Him. (Surat al-Anfal: 24) .
In studying Islam; we should make all efforts to build solid relationships with our local Imams, scholars, Muftis, and with astute people all-around. The company you keep will have a major influence upon you.
The essence of Islam is to praise Allah (alone). As devout Muslims we seek forgiveness and direction on a daily basis. May Allah accept all our dua(s). Ameen.
In studying Islam, one of the best resources we have at our disposal is the legacy of each great Messenger & Prophet. Please make sure to revisit their stories and fully comprehend the moral virtue of their epic life.
Hadith Qudsi is such a highly regarded virtue. Make sure to read, understand & follow Allah's advice to Mankind.
As a devout Muslim, both Males & Females should know the essence of Death & Dying in Islam. Each Muslim should know the basic step(s) to care for the deceased. Brush up on your knowledge with attention to detail on where you live.
As devout Muslims, we should always remember the day of judgement as the day of all days. We must learn to live this life with a thought of how we will be in front of Allah. May Allah grant Jannah to all Muslims who have shahadah in their hearts.
As devout Muslims; we should study Allah's attributes in the study of his names. Each Name of Allah has its own majestic value and level of gratitude that we must reflect upon. In his name we find more then virtue we find Allah.
