About ADAMS Center

Over the past four decades, the ADAMS Center has grown into one of the largest Muslim communities in the Washington, D.C. area. Today, we serve the areas of Sterling..

5 Pillars of Islam

The Five Pillars (Arkān al-Islām) are the core beliefs and practices of Islam which all muslims must adhere to are:



Every Muslim is supposed to believe that there is only one God and His messenger was Prophet Muhammad.



It is the ritual of praying to Allah five times a day facing Makkah. A Muslim must perform the ritual after dark, noon, sunset, mid-afternoon and at dawn.



Sawm or fasting helps Muslims to develop a sense of self-discipline and allows them to identify with the poor and the needy.



This is an obligatory giving of alms, to the less fortunate in your community of believers.



It is a pilgrimage to Makkah and is the fifth pillar of Islam. It strips away all that relates to societal standards, wealth, and pride.
