From the beginnings of Muhammad’s revelation to today, Muslims have kept his teachings to heart. To help continue the Islam lifestyle, Muhammad created the Five Pillars of Islam to sustain the religion and followers. In The World’s Religions, Huston Smith gives descriptions for all five pillars to help outsiders to understand and appreciate the faith more, which can do just that. The first of the Five Pillars is the Shahadah.
These five pillars help maintain the religion and the people. The first pillar is Faith. Faith is usually defined as a strong belief towards someone or an anatomy. The Muslims need to have their faith in one God, Allah. Allah is the only God they believe in.
Worship is an important part of the religion of Islam. Worship (Ibaadah) is a term that includes everything that Allah would be pleased with. It represents the utmost love for Allah through submission. Prayers,zakaat,fasting,hajj,being kind towards others, maintaining relations with kin, doing good and staying away from doing evil, being beneficent to neighbours,to the poor people or orphans,supplication,reciting the holy Quran and such others are types of worship.
The Prophet to worship God or Allah without worshiping anything along with him, to offer the five daily prescribed prayers, and for Muslims to fast for the month of Ramadan. Muslims believe that God has many qualities and names; the most
This means they get to be involved if they think their needs to be improvements within the care home and what support they want. For example, a service user may want more activities to be able to socialise with other adults. Respect for religious beliefs: Each service user within our care must be respected with their religious beliefs. Making sure there is halal meat for Muslims, prayer rooms, allowing Christians to go church, providing religious books, wanting a female carer. All these needs should be respected as each individual should be able to follow their religion wherever they
INTRODUCTION Islam is a religion of mercy for all people, both Muslims and non-Muslims. It is a religion which lays emphasis on the Unity of God, prophethood and then on righteous living. Muslims are the fastest-growing religious group in the world.
My understanding of this is that a religion person accepts a certain set of beliefs as true and observes a certain set of rituals. A person of the Christian religion believes Jesus is God 's son and observes baptism and communion. A person of the Muslim religion believes Allah is God and observes Ramadan and salat. Spirituality, on the other hand, is the fact of being spiritual and is most often than not evidenced by the act of doing spiritual things. Examples of these things are: praying, meditating, reading scripture, and giving to charity.
The purpose of the group would be to set an atmosphere where Muslim people can come together and share experiences that they may face in the workplace and support one another with different approaches or methods that may help one cope. Some of the goals that I feel would really help the group members reach the overall purpose of the group, is to create a warm, safe and friendly atmosphere. I feel as though setting specific rules and discussing the importance of confidentiality should set the tone for the group. As a facilitator, it’s my role to make sure I share who I am and state my purpose for the group. I shall identify with this specific group by doing my research on the culture itself and understand their beliefs and traditions before the first session of the group.
As a Foreign Language Teaching Assistant, I should take into account many aspects in order to succeed this experience. One reason to note is that I should usually focus on the functional aspect of the language, getting them to look at it as a tool to communicate. For example, heritage language learners might use the language in order to converse with different people in their lives like
In the Qur’an the testament, it says “ Those who keep the faith and perform the prayer, they are the best of the creation of God”. The Pious Muslim wanted to live a life worthy of saying they are the best of the creation of god. So to do that, they devoted their lives to their
After his experience in Gadsden, he expresses that “moments like this reconnected [him] to the purpose that had prompted [him] to launch this project in the first place” (Ahmed 24). Even though this ethnography is concerned with Muslim communities in America, it is also important to note how optimistic Muslims are shaping the future of many communities in the United States. Ahmed has been incredibly influential as an ethnographer, and his calm love is what he hopes to see when he examines Muslim communities in this country; like many of his faith, he wants his Muslim brothers and sisters to be at peace, no matter their differences. His points about leadership are reflected back onto him; his optimistic leadership is what is needed for Muslim unity on a national
However, it would be something I am interested in doing. Like I had previously mentioned, I would like to attend a Mosque. This would also assist me in becoming culturally competent with the Muslim population. I would also do my own studying and looking at the values and beliefs of Muslims. If I am in a public place and ever feel scared or threatened because there are Muslims around, I should do my best to change my train of thought.
Religion is one way for all people to have inspiration to live through the tough times. If people make it through those tough times, they all have significant ways of showing appreciation to the powers that made it possible. The bases of their worship to those powers are what either makes the powers curse or grant them the pleasures that they seek. Looking back to the pagan religions of the New Testament times, there were many differences in how the twenty-first century monotheistic religions such as Christianity, Judaism, and Islam are practiced.
