Far from being a once-a-week kind of belief, Islam is more of an all-encompassing way of life than just one part of life. Islam’s sacred text, the Holy Quran and also the Hadeeth, include guidance and direction for almost every aspect of life, from socializing to praying. The every day life of a Muslim is deeply influenced by the words of ALLAH Almighty and the act of prophets.
Every day prayer is central to the lives of millions of Muslims and is one of the basic five pillars of Islam. Religion Islam requires its followers to pray five times every day: once in the morning (Fajr), at noon (Zohar), early afternoon (Asr), at dusk (Maghrib) and at night (Esha). The prayer is preceded by a ritual washing (called ablution or “Wuzu”) of the hands, arms, feet, legs and head.
Muslims may perform Namaz anywhere provided they are facing the direction of Holy Kaabah in Makkah, Islam’s holiest site. In lots of Muslim communities, masjid officials use a public address system to call Believers to Namaz; this is both a reminder and a suggestion to pray with others (congregation), which is preferable to praying alone.
Islam urges its believers to dress modestly at all times. Muslim women often wear a head covering known as hijab or a scarf to keep their hairs covered an often attractive and very womanly trait from the view of men. Muslim men are also encouraged to do clothes modestly in loose-fitting garments.
Islam provides guidance on what every day activities are haram (forbidden) and halal (allowed, encouraged and beneficial). For example, consuming and taking alcohol, using mind-altering drugs and involving in sexual relations outside of marriage are all haram (forbidden). Alcohol and drugs cloud judgement and remove inhibition.
Muslims are also strictly prohibited from consuming pork, as pigs are considered dirty and bad animals. Other prohibitions include theft, cheating, and greed, showing disrespect to parents (especially to mothers) and other family members and to anyone and being uncharitable to widows, orphans and neighbours.
Interacting with Others
Muslims are required to treat good with everyone, even enemies, with courtesy and respect. With other Muslims, they offer a conventional Islamic greeting: “As-Salamu Alaikum,” which translates to “Peace be with you.” Islam also strongly encourages Muslims to accept an attitude of forgiveness and patience in everyday life, even with strangers.
The Holy Quran states that the perfect mindset would allow a Muslim to forgive others instantly, be blind to faults and do superior deeds even to those who wrong them. Sharing the Islamic beliefs and faith is also a significant part of living a high-quality Muslim life, provided it is done smoothly and calmly, without pushiness or aggression.
