"I bear witness that there is none worthy of worship save Allah and I bear witness that Muhammad is His final and true Messenger."

Recognizing and acknowledging the monotheistic nature of Allah stands at the core of Islam. This consists of a public affirmation that "there is no god but Allah (God), and Muhammad is His Messenger." One cannot be a Muslim until he states this fact in the presence of Muslim whitnesses.

Al-Fajr (Dawn prayer), Zhur (Noon prayer), `Asr (Afternoon prayer),
Maghrib (Sunset prayer), `Isha (Nightfall prayer).

A muslim must perform five daily prayers. These must be performed at specific times, corresponding roughly with dawn, noon, afternoon, sunset, and nightfall.
The prayers can be made in any clean place, but it is perferable to pray them with others in a Mosque, for this communal undertaking acts as a reminder that all muslims are equal. When many people are praying together, it becomes clear that color, economic status, social position, and all other artificial distinctions have no importance to Allah, for all Muslims are commanded to stand together, shoulder to shoulder and prostrate themselves before Him. There are no exceptions. Prayers also elevate the individual to a higher level of morality, purifies his heart, and helps him to resist his desire to engage in forbidden activities.
