The Five Pillars of Islam – the profession of faith, prayer, zakat, Ramadan and the Hajj – are considered the foundation of the faith.

A Muslim must believe in the oneness of Allah – God had no parents, siblings or children. Allah is singular and unique.

faith is the belief in the existence of angels. A Muslim must also have faith in the revelations of God – these include the Qur’an, Torah and the Gospels. Additionally, Muslims must believe in the prophets, many of whom are responsible for bringing Allah’s revelations to man. Among the prophets are the Prophet Muhammad, Jesus and Moses. Resurrection and a day of judgment, which are crucial to the Christian faiths, are also crucial to Islam. A Muslim must believe he or she will one day be resurrected and be judged for his or her deeds on earth.

A Muslim must believe Allah knows everything – past, present and future. Also, that God controls everything that exists and has ever existed.
