Prayer: To offer the (compulsory congregational) prayers dutifully and perfectly. 3. Almsgiving: Muslims are required to give one fortieth of their income to Allah as Zakat (obligatory charity).

I have implicit faith in God's Existence. According to me not even a blade of grass can sway in the wind without the Almighty's permission. Every act I do is inspired by my religious faith. .I try to hold no grudge against those who sin against me but that struggle seems perpetual to me. I believe in getting religious solace by visiting temples and performing puja whenever my mind seems to be in a state of unrest...thank you for a great question..!

In Catholic religion there is only one Act of Faith and it is :

O MY GOD, I firmly believe that Thou art one God in Three Divine Persons, Father, Son and Holy Ghost. I believe that Thy Divine Son became Man, and died for our sins, and that He will come to judge the living and the dead. I believe these and all the truths which the Holy Catholic Church teaches, because Thou hast revealed them, Who canst neither deceive nor be deceived.
