    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)
