Islamic scholars consider the "five pillars of Islam" to be the central tenets of their faith as set out in the Koran. The five pillars are:

1. “There is no true god (deity) but God (Allah),1 and Muhammad is the Messenger (Prophet) of God.”

2."Bilal, call (the people) to prayer, let us be comforted by it." One must pray five times a day in a certain manner.

3. Zakat or giving a certain percentage of ones wealth to the needy is described in several places in the Koran.

4. One must fast during Ramadan.

5. One must perform a Hajj or pilgrimmage to Mecca at least once.
