Shahadah

Welcome to your first lesson of many on Islam Practices with Mr Latif! This unit will explore a range of practices from the 5 Pillars to festivals. We will begin our first lesson today looking at the Shahadah which is one of the 5 pillars of Islam. The main focus will be on an introduction to the 5 pillars. We will also consider, ‘What is the Shahadah and how is it found in belief and practice?’ If you have the TV or music on, now is the time to switch it off. If you are not using your mobile phone for this lesson, it is best advised to put it away so it doesn't distract you. You will need a black or blue pen and another colour pen such as green or red for corrections, some paper or your exercise book and more importantly a curious brain and attentive ears! Any reference to verses from the Qur’an mentioned or included within this lesson are sourced from 'Corpus Quran' using the Sahih International translation.
