- Moreover, Islam also believes in the Prophets or Messengers of God.
- The worshippers of Islam believe that God’s message had been spread through mankind with the help of these Prophets and Messengers, and there happens to be 25 Prophets in Islam, the last being Muhammad.
- Additionally, the worshippers of Islam believe in the Day of Judgement.
- Muslims believe that on this day, all humans will be judged based off of their actions that they have committed in their lifetime, and will ultimately be sent to Paradise (Heaven) or Jahannam (Hell).
- In addition, a significant belief in the Muslim world are the Five Pillars of Islam.
- The First Pillar (Declaration of Faith) - This pillar states that Muslims must only believe in the singular God of Allah, and that is also what makes the religion monotheistic.
- The Second Pillar (Prayer) - In this pillar, Muslims must pray 5 times every day towards Mecca, and this is also for one’s devotion to the religion.
- The Third Pillar (Charity) - Muslims are required to give to the poor and needy, and Islam prescribes an obligatory charity, known as zakat, based on two and a half percent of one's income and wealth. In addition to this prescribed charity, Muslims are encouraged to give as much as they can in voluntary charity throughout the year.
- The Fourth Pillar (Fasting) -
- During the month of Ramadan, in the ninth month of the lunar calendar, Muslims refrain from eating food to drinking water, and the reason for this is to bring the faithful closer to God and to remind them of the suffering of those less fortunate.
- During this month, Muslims often donate to charity and feed the hungry.
- The Fifth Pillar (Pilgrimage to Mecca)
- Muslims must complete the Pilgrimage to Mecca, Saudi Arabia, at least once in their lifetime, if they are financially stable of course, and pray towards the Ka'bah, which is the House of God.
