The four noble truths of Buddhism are: In Life, there will be suffering, Suffering is caused by craving, there is freedom from suffering, and freedom from suffering is the Path to Enlightenment. The first noble truth is due to the ordinary everyday difficulties of life, unavoidable changing circumstances, and difficulties caused by the flawed nature of conditioned existence. The second noble truth explains the origin of our suffering. We are always craving for more and are never satisfied with what we have at the moment. We are constantly chasing happiness and if we cannot reach that state of happiness, we will experience suffering. The third noble truth explains that there is an end to suffering, as long as you are able to let go of your cravings in life and be happy with what you have in life. The fourth noble truth explains the path to being able to be free from suffering, also known as The Middle Way. The noble eightfold path to liberation is Right Understanding, Right Thought, Right Speech, Right Action, Right Livelihood, Right Effort, Right Mindfulness, and Right Concentration. The five pillars of Islam are: Shahadah, Salat, Zakat, Sawm, and Hajj. Shahadah, also known as witnessing, is the phrase "I bear witness that there is no God but Allah and Muhammad is his messenger." The only criteria to being Arabic is fully believing this phrase. Salat is daily prayer, at least five times a day. Zakat is charity or almsgiving. You are required to donate at least 2.5%-10% of your income to the poor. Sawm is fasting, refraining from eating, drinking, and sexual activities. There is one mandatory fast during Ramadan, done to keep Prophet Muhammad first received revelations in remembrance. Haji is the pilgrimage, which is done in Mecca, required at least once in a lifetime.
