In day to day life, Muslims maintain the sanctity of God’s laws through a variety of practices, very often known as Furu-e-deen (branches of religion).
The ten branches of religion are:
“And establish salaa and give zakaa….” (Qur’an 2:43)
“O you who believe! Sawm (Fasting) has been ordained for you as it was ordained for those before you so that you may be God concious.” (Qur’an 2:183)
“….and Hajj (pilgrimage) to the House is incumbent upon all human beings who are able to undetake it for the sake of Allah…”(Qur’an 3:97)
“And know that whatever you acquire, a fifth of it is for Allah and for His Prophet and (the Prophet’s) near relations, and the orphans and the needy and the wayfarer….” (Qur’an 8:41)
Jihad is often translated as ‘holy war’. However, it is much more than that. Jihad literally means to ‘work hard’ or ‘to strive’ for something.
“And from among you there should be a party who invite to good and enjoin what is right and forbid the wrong, and these it is that shall be successful” (Qur’an 3:104)
“Say: I do not ask of you any reward but love for my near relatives…” (Qur’an 42: 23) “O you who believe! Do not take My enemy and your enemy as friends…” (Qur’an 60:1)
