Testification of belief/ faith
Ash hadu an la elaha elallah wa ash hadu anna Muhammad rasulullah
I testify that there is no god but god ( Allah) and Muhammad (pbuh) is the messenger of god.
Believing with certainty in your heart, knowing with your mind and uttering with your tongue that there is no diety, lord, god worthy of worship, serving, loving, fearing but Allah. To whom all acts of oath and worship are directed to. And that Muhammad is the final and prophet along a line of messengers beginning with Adam (pbuh)
In islam we say believe which is a result of conviction as a result of solid proof, as opposed to faith which is defined as believing in something in the absence of proof .
In Christianity the word “faith” does not exist in the original aramaic language of the gospel, and instead the word “heyman” which means believe is found.
Prayer is an important part of a muslim’s daily life style, which washes away his sins and recharges his soul.
2:43 And establish prayer and give zakah and bow with those who bow
6:72 And to establish prayer and fear Him.” And it is He to whom you will be gathered.
6:162 Say, “Indeed, my prayer, my rites of sacrifice, my living and my dying are for Allah, Lord of the worlds.
14:31 [O Muhammad], tell My servants who have believed to establish prayer and spend from what We have provided them, secretly and publicly, before a Day comes in which there will be no exchange, nor any friendships.
20:14 Indeed, I am Allah . There is no deity except Me, so worship Me and establish prayer for My remembrance.
29:45 Recite what has been revealed to you of the Book, and keep up the prayer. Surely prayer ansteins obscenity and malfeasance; and indeed the Remembrance of Allah is greater, and Allah knows whatever you work.
Dhuhur/noon, Asr/evening and Isha/Nightfall prayer have the same 4 number of cycles, unlike Fajr/Dawn and Jummah/Friday prayer
O you who have believed, decreed upon you is fasting as it was decreed upon those before you that you may attain god conciousness / piety/ fear (2:183)
It is made lawful to you, upon the night of the Fast, to lie (Literally: lying) with your wives; they are a garment (i.e. vestment, mutual protection) for you, and you are a garment for them. Allah knows that you have been betraying yourselves, so He has relented toward you and has been clement to you. So now go in to them, and seek whatever Allah has prescribed for you. And eat and drink until the white thread becomes evident to you from the black thread at dawn; thereafter complete (Literally: perfect) the Fast to the night, and do not go in to them while you are consecrating yourselves in the mosques. Such are the bounds of Allah, so do not draw near them. Thus Allah makes His signs evident to mankind, that possibly they would be pious. (2:187)
Fast from dawn till dusk
