Islam is defined as the religion of peace and the total way of life. It is based on worshipping Allah and following the footpaths of the prophet Muhammed peace be upon him. It is based on five major things, which are going to be explained here.
1. Iman (i.e faith) in Allah, in his Prophets, the angels, the books sent down to the world, the hereafter and in fate, whether good or bad.
3. Giving to charity (Zakah): Giving to charity is obligatory once one has enough money which Zakah can be removed from. However, note that it is different from Sadaqah, which is giving freely, you don't need to have more than enough before giving Sadaqah.
