FUROO-E-DEEN - PART 1
Furoo-e-deen are the branches of religion. They are the acts of worship that we
do when we have understood the Usool-e-deen. There are 10 Furoo-e-deen
altogether.
1. Salaat (Daily Prayers)
Allah says in the Holy Qur’an: “Seek assistance through patience and
Salaat… “(2:45)
There are 17 Raka’ats in the Daily Prayers:
Fajr has 2;
Dhohr has 4;
‘Asr has 4;
Maghrib has 3 &
‘Isha has 4.
2. Sawm (Fasting in the Month of Ramadhan)
Allah says in the Holy Qur’an: “O you who believe, Sawm is prescribed for
you… so that you may become pious. “(2:183)
Fasting is Wajib for every Muslim for the whole lunar month of Ramadhan
every year. It starts at Subhe Sadiq and ends at the time of Maghrib.
3. Haj (Pilgrimage to Makka)
Allah says in the Holy Qur’an: “And go for Haj for the
pleasure of Allah…” (2:196)
Every Muslim has to go to Makka once in their life-time for
Pilgrimage when they can afford to go.
4. Zakaat (Islamic Tax)
Allah says in the Holy Qur’an: “And surely those who believe
and do good deeds and keep up Salaat and pay Zakaat
shall have their reward with their Lord…” (2:277)
Zakaat is an Islamic Tax that is paid on certain items and is given
to needy Shia Muslims.
5. Khums (Islamic Tax)
Allah says in the Holy Qur’an: “And from everything you
gain, Khums is for Allah and His Prophet…”(8:41)
Khums is another Islamic Tax that everyone has to pay. We
pay 1/5th of our year's savings. The money is divided between
Saadaat (descendants of the Prophet (S) and our 12th Imam
(AS); during his Ghaibat it is given to the Mujtahid.
