One turns into a Muslim by reciting this phrase with conviction.

2. Prayer (Salat). Muslims pray confronting Makkah five times a day: at dawn, noon, mid-afternoon, sunset, and after dark. Prayer incorporates a recitation of the opening chapter (sura) of the Qur’an, and is sometimes performed on a small-rug or mat-used explicitly for this reason. Muslims can supplicate exclusively at any area or together in a mosque, where a leader in prayer (Imam) directs the assemblage. Men accumulate in the mosque for the afternoon petition on Friday; Females are welcome however not obliged to partake. After the prayer, a sermon focuses on a passage from the Quran, followed by prayers by the imam and a discussion of a particular religious subjects.

3) Alms (Zakat). As per Islamic law, Muslims give a fixed part of their earnings/income to poor community members those in need. Numerous rulers and rich Muslims assemble mosques, water fountains, emergency clinics, schools, and different foundations both as a religious obligation and to make sure about the favors related with noble cause such a charity.

4) Fasting (sawm). During the sunshine long periods of Ramadan, the ninth month of the Islamic calendar, every healthy adult Muslims are needed to keep away from food and drinks. Through this transitory deprivation, they reestablish their consciousness of and appreciation for all that God has given in their lives — including the Qur’an, which was first revealed during this holy month. During Ramadan they share the craving and thirst of the penniless as a token of the strict obligation to help those less blessed

5.Pilgrimage (hajj). Every Muslim whose health and finances allow it must make at least one visit to the holy city of Makkah, in present-day Saudi Arabia. The Kaba, a cubical structure shrouded in black embroidered hangings, is at the focal point of the Haram Mosque in Makkah. Muslims trust that it is the house Abraham (Ibrahim in Arabics) built for Allah, and face towards its direction (qibla) when they implore. Since the time of the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH), adherents from everywhere on over the world have accumulated around the Ka’ba in Makkah on the eighth and twelfth days of the last month of the Islamic schedule.
