The Faith
They declare their faith by saying the "Shahada"

"Shahada" is a sentence

"There is no god but God and Muhammad is his Messenger"

They say by saying this sentence you will become Muslim BUT you have to say it with meaning

It confirms that their God (Allah) passed his message through Muhammad
Prayers are also called Salat

They MUST be done five time a day

Dawn, Noon, Mid-afternoon, Sunset and Nightfall

They can be done at home, work, school or in a Mosque

Prayer MUST always be done in the direction of the Kabah (black cube) which is located in Mecca, Saudi Arabia

Men must perform the Friday afternoon prayer in a Mosque
The Zakat
The Islamic people believe that everything that belongs to you belongs to God

Every year Muslims give 2.5% of their money to the ones who need it

It is not mandatory to give in 2.5%
The Fast
They call it Ramadan. It lasts for 1 month

They don't eat between the hours of sunrise and sunset

They don't drink either BUT children can, especially the ones living in hot country like Singapore

In general children start fasting when they reach puberty

They practice discipline and they experience what the poor might live
They call it the Hajj. It takes place on the twelfth month of the lunar year

Its the biggest religious gathering of the world

Over 3 million Muslims travel each year to the Mecca

They walk 7 times counter clock wise around the Kabah (black cube)

That is the same Kabah they prey towards 5 times per day

Every Muslim should go there at least once in their life if they are physically and financially capable.
The black curtain around the Kabah is called the Kiswah
Jihad means "making an effort" in the cause of god
Includes fighting in defense of Muslims (this is lesser Jihad)
The greater of Jihad is to work hard at achieving personal goals
Extremists sometimes perform cruel acts using this because it is the way they understand the rule

20,000 slaves were bought in a year
