How do Muslims practice their faith?
Muslims practice their faith in many different ways, but the major practices for all Muslims are known as the Five Pillars, which include:
1. The profession of faith, namely that there is only one God and that Muhammad is the Messenger of God;
2. The five daily prayers;
3. Required annual donation to charity in the amount of 2.5% of one’s excess wealth;
4. Fasting during daylight hours in the month of Ramadan; and
5. Making a pilgrimage to Mecca once in a lifetime, if one is mentally, physically, and financially able to do so.
