THE FIVE PILLARS OF ISLAM 2 The Five Pillars of Islam The Prophet Muhammad, who is also referred to as the “seal of prophets” shared his revelations in the form of the Quran, which is the Muslims Holy book. In the scriptures of the Quran is where you will find the central beliefs of Islam and the meanings behind them. It is within those meanings that the foundation of the Five Pillars can be revealed. “A Muslim must do his or her best to fulfill the Five Pillars because they are considered God’s commandments”. (Fisher, 2005) The first pillar in the Five Pillars is, “Belief and witness”. This pillar stresses the need to believe that “There is no god but God, and Muhammad is the Messenger of God.” (Fisher, 2005) The importance of having faith in and declaring these two things to be facts is the foundation of the first pillar.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
