Five Pillars of Islam,        by Dr. Recep Dogan

The religion of Islam aims to bring happiness to the lives of human beings in this world and the afterlife by providing them with the most suitable lifestyle for the human condition. Allah revealed Islam through Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) giving Muslims two main sources from which to learn their duties and worship: the Quran and Sunnah (the behaviour and words of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh). In order to worship in the most authentic way, a Muslim must know both the Quran and Sunnah. This book focuses on worship and its relevant topics. To be able to perform sound and healthy worship, a Muslim needs to have an accurate knowledge of the religion. This book explains the evidence for the rulings from the Quran, Sunnah and other sources.


“A ‘MUST HAVE’ book for every Muslim family library! Dr Recep Dogan has done an excellent job in taking the fundamental pillars of Islam and breaking them down into one concise and easy to read book. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and would highly recommend it to ALL Muslims… It is an excellent practical book to read and study as a family and teach our children as well as to use within study circles. The book is also an excellent read for researchers on Islam and Jurisprudence. I personally read this book to help me with my PhD thesis however as a fiqh student and teacher it has also helped me a lot and I know my students will benefit from it immensely. I’m really looking forward to reading Dr Recep Dogan’s further publications. I give this book a 5* plus rating!” Nadia Leona Yunis, Editor at Young Muslimah Magazine and Founder of We Be Inspired
