Our Guide is The Qur’an

(Teacher): “All Muslims have to do five things. Who knows what they are?”

(Children): “Shahadah, Salah, Zakat, Sawm, Hajj.”

(Teacher): “And do you know what these mean?”

(Children): “Testimony of the Faith, Prayer, Charity, Fasting, Pilgrimage.”

dusturuna ’l-qur’anu wa deenuna ’l-Islamu
arkanuhu ’l-jaleela da‘aa’imu ’l-fadeelah
wa hiya ’sh-shahadatani qa‘idatu ’l-iman
wa’s-sawmu wa’s-salatu wa ’l-hajju wa ’z-zakatu

Our guide is the Qur’an
Our religion is Islam
Five noble pillars upholding what is virtuous
To make the Testimony is the base of the faith,
And the Fast, and the Prayer, the Pilgrimage
and Charity



(Translation by Yusuf Islam)
