The religious commitments expected of all Muslims are key practices that every God fearing Muslim must keep up for life. They are the five pillars on which the religion of Islam rests; namely,

Shahada (Profession of Faith)
Salat (Prayer)
Zakat (Alms)
Sawm (Fasting)
Hajj (Pilgrimage)

Sawm is the fourth pillar of Islam. This involves a strict fast from sunrise to sundown in which Muslims abstain from food, drink, all sensuous pleasures and all forms of impure behaviour, including impure or unkind thoughts. Sawm is religiously followed through the month of Islam by most Muslims from age seven years and above. Only those who are travelling or having health problems do not fast. Sawm is also practised during other months, but the intention to fast should be declared in the prayer the previous night.

The Holy Quran stresses clearly that righteousness is not in the precise observance of the prayers and other rituals but in acts of compassion and kindness.

Giving away Zakat in the month of Ramadan is said to be doubly blessed than in other months.

The first day of the month after Ramadan (Shawwal) is known as Eid-el-fitri Sallah (the festival of fast breaking) in Nigeria. Prayers on the day of Eid are called. "Salat Al Eid" and there are no audible calls for prayers. The prayers are followed by a sermon, in which the imam asks for forgiveness, mercy, and peace for every being across the world. Other key elements of the Eid celebrations are giving money to the poor (known as 'Zakat al-Fitr', the amount to be given depends on the possessions someone has), sending Eid greetings and feasting with families.
