What is required of Muslims?

How do they show their devotion to God through worship? How do they fulfil their religious obligations towards God’s creation? Where can they find spiritual contentment? At the heart of these questions lie the Five Pillars of Islam. The Prophet Muhammad called them the foundation of the edifice of Islam. The Five Pillars consist of a number of devotional acts.
