What do you have to say or do to be part of these communities?
Homework – for Tues Do a poster for a mosque to explain the 4th pillar of Islam: ZAKAT (duty to practice charity). Include answers to: 1.What is Zakat & what does the word mean? 2.How much is it? 3.Why must Muslims pay Zakat? 4.How is the Zakat money spent?
To describe what the Shahadah is (AT1) To explain when the Shahadah is recited and explain it’s importance. (L4-5) To evaluate why it is important to declare faith. (L6) 1 st Pillar Shahadah – Declaration of Faith Go back to your picture of the 5 pillars. Write in “Shahadah – Declaration of Faith” in the 1 st pillar 2. What do you think Muslims might say that they believe in? Guess and write your version of a “Muslim Declaration of Faith”
Listen to the song. Which lines do you think make up the actual Shahadah? a)Speech bubble (clearly!) someone saying the Shahadah in English. b)Describe how a person becomes a Muslim. **Why wouldn’t a Christian say and believe the Shahadah? Ashadu an la ilaha illa illa-ilah, wa ashadu anna muhammadan rasuloollah. You MUST believe the Shahadah to be a Muslim. Reciting this statement three times in front of witnesses, with full understanding of what it means, is all that anyone needs to do to become a Muslim. "I testify that there is no god but Allah, and I testify that Muhammad is the messenger of Allah.“ x3
When else do Muslim’s recite the Shahadah? When a baby is born the father will whisper it into the baby’s ear so that it is the first thing it hears. "There is no God but Allah, and Muhammad is his messenger.“ Teach it to their children as soon as possible. Repeat it several times each day between getting up in the morning and going to bed at night. Muslims hope that they will be the last words that cross their lips before they die. Draw a life cycle from birth to death, & label it. Add in an extra arrow if someone converts into Islam. **Is saying a declaration of faith a good enough way to belong to a religion?
