Guide to the pillars of Islam & Its Essence
Central to the Islamic teachings and way of life are various obligatory acts of worship (ibadah) which are often referred to as the “Five Pillars of Islam.” While the aim of each of these is the remembrance and glorification of Allah s.w.t., it must be emphasized that Allah’s majesty and glory do not depend in the slightest degree upon the praise or even acknowledgment of His creatures. Rather it is the human being who needs these recurrent forms of worship to keep his contact with his Lord.
The purpose of Islamic acts of worship or practices is, therefore, to strengthen the individual’s faith and submission to Allah, to enhance his character, to discipline him for his role as Allah’s faithful servant and steward on earth, to make it possible and easy for him/her to live in the manner ordained by Allah, and to reinforce the ties of brotherhood and affection among humankind. In this deeply self-reflective and interactive course, students will not only learn the fine details of the aspects of worship, but also their significance to sustain his appreciation and steadfastness in performing them.

Being Singaporean Muslim | Muslim Warga Singapura
What it means to be a Muslim in the contemporary world
Muslims in Singapore have lived peacefully with members of other faith communities for more than five decades of our nationhood. Singaporean Muslims take pride in the strides that we have achieved as a community in facing multiples challenges of the contemporary world. As we continue to strive in staying faithful to our religious values and fulfilling the demands of the modern society, we are often faced with new challenges that come along the way.
The threats of radicalism and terrorism propagated by minority few who claimed to be pursuing their ‘Islamic’ agenda, seek to influence the minds of our young. Through the promotion of their perverted version of Islam, they have been able to recruit and radicalize Muslims around the globe – and some are from Singapore. They led these people to doubt the compatibility of Islam with the contemporary world, and they promoted an exclusive and utopian political model that – in their skewed interpretation – is the only legitimate authority for the Muslim world.
