The is usually only read in its native Arabic writing but has been translated into English and few other languages on rare occasions. The Arabic religion consists of a framework called the 5 pillars which are shahadah, salat, Zakat, sawm, and Hajj. The last pillar roughly translates to "a pilgrimage to mecca', which means that any Islamic follower who is financially able must make the journey to the mecca and pray with thousands of others who do the same.
