1) Declaration of belief(Shahada): this is the initial act of faith, expressed in a simple creedal statement which testifies one's commitment to following the straight path of God's guidance upon which Muslims seek to live their lives;

"I bear Witness that there is no god but God;

"I bear witness that Muhammad is His servant and His prophet"

2)Prayer (salat), offered five times a day, has the '7 effect of reminding the faithful that "remembrance of God is indeed the greatest virtue," and helps them adhere to the path of righteousness, and to restrain themselves from indecency and evil.

3) Fasting (sawm), observed through the daylight hours of the 29/30 days of the Islamic month of Ramadan, involves abstinence from eating,

drinking, smoking and marital intercourse; this reminds the believers of their dependence upon

God, as well as their kinship with, and responsibility for the millions of human beings in the

world who experience involuntary fasting because of the lack of provisions, or their unjust distribution.

4) Purification of wealth (Zakat): this requires the annual giving of a fixed amount of excess personal assets for the benefit of the poor, the

incapacitated, the deprived, and the welfare of the community; it serves to remind Muslims that all beneficence comes from the bounty of God, and is enjoyed only by His mercy; sharing becomes an act of purification both of the wealth itself, and of the giver whose soul is disciplined against greed by the virtue of selflessness.

5) Pilgrimage (hajj), which all Muslims should perform at least once in a lifetime if personal circumstances permit, gathers the believers as members of the diverse human family into a single community; they perform prescribed acts of worship at the Holy House of the Ka'ba in Mecca which, according to the Qur'an, was originally built by the Prophet Abraham and his son Ishmael; and at Mount Arafat where they remember the pure and original way of life of Adam, the progenitor of all human beings, reaffirmed by the Patriarch of the entire human family, the Prophet Abraham, and finally perfected and completed by God for all humanity through the mission of the Prophet Muhammad - the way of life known as Islam which has at its heart the doctrine of the unity and uniqueness of the One God.

many people these day don't have time to pray or read quran and that link to islam is breaking, in order to have a strong muslim link you should fulfil and find enough time to make sure these rituals are complete so their links to islam are strong its like a power socket and a computer in order to get power to use the computer you need to plug in the socket so that links electricity to the computer so we muslims must have a strong link to our islam, we need to spend less time doing junk and more time praying and fulfilling all the rituals. lets say I pray only 4 prayers on time and I always every day pray salat fajr late, this lateness of salat is breaking your link strength every time you miss a salat, you get more zakat more hasanat by praying them on time. and over 25% of muslims miss atleast 1 or 2 days or fasting in Ramadan, over 60% of muslims pray salat fajr late with salat dhuhr because they couldn't be bothered to wake up in the morning for 5 minutes for their god. I bet you that over 80% of our children don't know the story of islam, they just pray without understanding what happened before, how islam started.
