The Five Pillars are the basic principles that every Muslim must follow. They include Prayer, Faith, Fasting, Pilgrimage, and Sharing. Every Muslim must follow these rules as part of the Islamic religion:

1. Shahadah: Faith
2. Salah: Prayer
3. Zakah: Sharing
4. Sawm: Fasting
5. Hajj: Pilgrimage

Shahadah states that there is only one God and he is Allah. It says that Muslims must worship Allah and no other God. It also stated that Muhammad is their only Prophet.

Salah requires every Muslim to pray throughout the day, everyday, five times a day. this helps them strengthen their religion and faith in Islam and Allah. this means every Muslim prays more than 1800 times a year.

Zakah states that every Muslim must give money to the poor. It says that we are not important until we care for others who need it. It also says to treat everyone the same, not one better than the other. In Allah's eyes, we are all the same.

Sawm states that every Muslim must fast from dawn to sunset. They must do this once a year on a certain day called Ramadan. This is to show thanks and patience. It also helps control your appetite.

Hajj requires every Muslim to travel to Mecca at least once in his or her lifetime. This is because Mecca is considered the city and center of the Islamic religion. In fact, 2 to 3 million people visit Mecca each year.
