Muslim Duties


Fasting

The fourth pillar of Islam
Is fasting which we do
Once a year in Ramadan
To make us stronger too
Right from when the day begins
We start to fast you see
And when the sun has set completely
That's when we can eat
Ramadaan is such a great time!
More Qur'aan we read
And Allah gives us more rewards!
For doing each good deed
The gates of Paradise are opened
During Ramadan!
It's a time when Muslims try
To strengthen their Imaan
Look forward then to Ramadan
For one month it will last
And Allah will give huge rewards
For every single fast!

The Five Pillars of Islam

Allah is One and like no one,
He has no partner, nor a son,
He is Kind and Just and Wise,
And has no form, shape or size.

His final Messenger to all of us,
Did so much without a fuss,
Muhammad is his blessed name,
As mercy to the worlds he came.

Five times a day we make Salah,
That's when we bow down to Allah,
We ask for guidance when we pray,
And this we do every single day.

We have to share with those in need,
And not give in to thoughts of greed,
Zakah then helps us in this way,
Lest we should err and go astray.

In the month of Ramadan we must fast,
From the first day to the last,
When food and drink we put aside,
By fasting rules we then abide.

And all those who can afford,
Seek the pleasure of their Lord,
They perform their Hajj you know,
When to Makkah the pilgrims go.

Salat

When the time has come to pray
Put your little toys away
Then go wash like you're told to
It's time for your wudoo!
Then come calmly to Salaah
And concentrate before Allaah
We stand before our Lord to pray
He hears what you say
We praise Allaah and ask Him to
Keep us on His Path that's true
We want to try to do things right
And pray our best each day and night
Dear young Muslim! Guard your prayer
Great reward for you is there!

Hajj

For Allah, my heart went there
Where I turn my face in Prayer
It's a duty, this I know
So to Makkah I did go
For Allaah I packed my gear
Then to His House I came near
For my journey I was ready
Allaah made me strong and steady
I walked around the Ka'bah wall
And teardrops from my eyes did fall
   Yearning was I for this day
In Allaah's House to pray!
Truly my heart, Allaah brought
I thank Him for His support!
With His Mercy I arrived
Then home I went, purified!

Salaat

Salaat is a basic pillar of islam
It is mentioned again and again in the Quran
The importance of prayer is in seven hundred places
But in the mosque,do you see many young faces?
Praying in the mosque gives 27 times the reward
Pray with the intention that you're pleasing your Lord
When you walk to the mosque,just remember within
You gain a reward and you're losing a sin

For every step towards your destination
This is a blessing from Allah swt to his creation
The Quran has foretold, that before you are dead
`say your prayers before your prayers are said'
our prophet saws said about those who miss prayer
fifteen punishments they'll have to bear
six in this life,three on passing away
three in the grave and three on judgement day
for missing fajr at the start of the day
the glow of the face is taken away

The punishment for missing the salaat of Dhuhar
there will be no blessing from your income no more
for missing asr, the middle prayer of the day
the strength of the body is taken away
by missing maghrib, remember one thing
you will not be benefited by your offspring
for missing ishaa at the end of the day
the peace of your sleep will be taken away

While seeing elders pray at the mosque door
remember as a young person, your reward is 70 times more
read salaat punctually, read it with care
on judgement day, we will be asked about prayer
that's the first question, so take this advice
salaat is the key to paradise

Spread this word to muslim sisters and brothers
salaat will separate muslims from others
salaat is a blessing which Allah swt gave
it will intercede and protect us in the grave
when it comes eventually, to the day of rising
the believers body washed by wudu will be shining
for the believers who are regular in offering salaat
it becomes a light of guidance on the pul-siraat

Don't miss the prayer asr at any cost
it will be like your family and wealth is lost
the ayat-ul-kursi after fard, should be read
it will lead you to paradise (insha Allah) after you're dead
not reading salaat will lead you to hell
surrounded by serpants in a deep well

Read your salaat whilst still in your prime
and read the durood shareef in your spare time
you'll get ten rewards, the Lord (insha Allah) will accept your pleas
and you'll be closer to Allah swt by ten more degrees
so embrace islam with all your heart
and remember the key is reading salaat
