Practical Principles

After finding faith in the Islamic axioms, the next step in declaration of this belief is to accomplish and obey certain commands which will lead us to a life of eternal satisfaction and bliss. Following such commandments is equally as important as having faith in the Islamic axioms. This second step, which actually shows one’s absolute submission to the will of God, includes some practical principles: Prayer (Salat), Fasting (Sawm), Holy Pilgrimage (Hajj), Khums, Alms-tax (Zakat), Holy Struggle (Jihad), Enjoining the right and forbidding the wrong (Amr bil Ma'ruf wa Nahy an al Munkar), Expressing love towards good and disassociation from evil (Tawalla and Tabarra).
