Virginia: School lesson – ‘create poster about 5 Pillars of Islam to be displayed in classroom around the school’

More detail on the Dept of Education’s Islamic indoctrination program for public schools video we posted earlier this year. It’s not clear which schools in Virginia are assigning this to students, but it has more than 130,000 views already. That’s just one page in Virginia. It’s in your state too.

The lesson detail and requirements are disturbing to say the least.

Source: Access Islam? | We The Vigilant – Barry Secrest

It’s called “Access Islam” and it’s being pushed as an educational religious indoctrination program for millions of children in public schools across America.

Access Islam has been a growing effort, among the progressive left and the US government, to introduce the cult of Islam to millions upon millions of unsuspecting parents and school children, many of whom are not allowed to share their given Christian faith, in any form, while on public school grounds.

The initial phase of the instruction (or indoctrination) involves one of the most basic tenets of Muslimism, that being the five pillars of Islam.

According to the  Access Islam syllabus, “students explore and understand the basic beliefs of Islam as well as the Five Pillars that guide Muslims in their daily life” as follows:

The Five Pillars of Islam


  • Describe the basic beliefs of Islam;
  • Explain the meaning of each of the Five Pillars of Islam;
  • Compare and contrast the Five Pillars of Islam with the duties of other religions with which they are familiar.

Grade Level:


Suggested Time

Three to four 45-minute class sessions

Part I: Introductory Activity

The Basic Beliefs and Practices of Islam

  1. Explain to your students that they will be learning about some of the basic beliefs and practices of Islam, the religion followed by Muslims. Ask students to begin by brainstorming a list of things that they know about Islam. Have students record their thoughts about Islam privately, without discussing the responses as a class. Ask students to hold on to their responses (or you may collect them). Explain to them that throughout the course of the next activity they will learn more about the basic beliefs and practices of Islam, and that after they complete the activity they will have time to review and revise their responses.
  2. Explain to students that in this lesson they are going to learn about the basic beliefs of Islam and focus on learning about the core duties of Muslims, the Five Pillars. Divide the class into pairs and direct students to the Muslims Teachers Guide FRONTLINE PBS website. Provide them with a focus for media interaction, instructing them to read the sections: “Beliefs of Muslims” and “Major Practices/Duties of Muslims” and record, on their Student Response Sheet 1: The Five Pillars of Islam, the six major beliefs and the name of each of the Five Pillars and a description of that pillar. After students have recorded this information, review the major beliefs and the Five Pillars as a whole class, addressing any questions, such as vocabulary and definitions, during the discussion. Record a list of the Five Pillars on the board during the class discussion so students have a clear visual reference to all of the pillars throughout the rest of the lesson.

Part II: Learning Activity #1


  1. Explain to students that you will be looking at each pillar in detail beginning with the first pillar, which is Shahadah or belief. To begin, go to the BBC website Have students read about what it means to proclaim faith or belief as a Muslim. Have students, individually, silently read the Shahadah. Ask the students to think about what the Shahadah means. Why do they think that this statement is a significant part of being a Muslim? Record their thoughts on their Student Response Sheet 2: The Five Pillars of Islam handout, and discuss these questions as a class.
      How is this statement of belief similar to other religions? How is it different? Some examples are the Shema Israel and the Thirteen Articles of Faith in Judaism or the Nicene Creed in Christianity.

Part III: Learning Activity #2


  1. Next, students will look more closely at the second pillar, which is Salat or prayer. Have students watch the Muslim Prayer video as well as read the information from the BBC at and and watch the two streaming video segments about prayer preparation and the set of movements for prayer. Provide them with a focus for media interaction, instructing students to view the segments and record answers to the following questions on their Student Response Sheet 2: The Five Pillars of Islam.
    • Describe the process that Muslims go through to prepare to pray.
    • Describe the process of praying in Islam. How many times each day, and when, do Muslims pray?
    • What do the prayers sound like?
    • What do the movements look like?
    • In which direction do Muslims pray?
    • Why do they face this way?
    • What are some of the things Muslims say during prayer?
    • Why do Muslims pray?
    • How is prayer in Islam similar to prayer in other religions?
    • How is it different?
    • Why is prayer important in Islam

Part IV: Learning Activity #3


  1. Next, students will examine the third pillar, which is Zakaat or almsgiving. Have students watch the Zakaat video and read the information about Zakaat at Provide them with a focus for media interaction, instructing students to view the video segment and record answers to the following questions on their Student Response Sheet 2: The Five Pillars of Islam:
    • What is Zakaat?
    • What is emphasized in Zakaat?
    • Why do Muslims make donations?
    • How much money is a person expected to give to charitable causes?
    • What is the relationship between prayer and money?
    • How is zakaat different from ordinary charity that Muslims might give?
  2. After students have viewed the segment and the website, discuss what they have learned about Zakaat. What other religions ask believers to donate money? How is this similar to other religions? How is this different.

Part V: Learning Activity #4


  1. Next, students will examine the fourth pillar, which is fasting or Sawm. Have students watch the Ramadan is Here video and read the information at Provide them with a focus for media interaction, instructing students to view the video segment and record answers to the following questions on their Student Response Sheet 2: The Five Pillars of Islam:
    • Why is Ramadan described as “expecting a month long guest?”
    • Explain the guidelines for fasting during Ramadan. When is eating allowed? At what age does a Muslim begin fasting? Does fasting only occur during Ramadan? Are there other rules?
    • Describe some of the challenges one might encounter when fasting during Ramadan. Describe some of the benefits.
  2. After students have viewed the segment and read the information on the website, discuss what they have learned about Sawm. How does fasting from eating and other activities affect people’s spiritual state of mind? What other religions include fasting? How is Sawm similar to fasting in other religions? How is it different?

Part VI: Learning Activity #5


  1. Finally, students will examine the fifth pillar, which is pilgrimage or Hajj. Have students view The Hajj: Islamic Sacred Pilgimage video from WGBH. Provide them with a focus for media interaction, instructing students to view the segment and record answers to the following questions on their Student Response Sheet 2: The Five Pillars of Islam:
    • What is the goal or focus of the Hajj?
    • What is the purpose of the special garments that the pilgrims wear?
    • How do these American Muslims react to the Hajj? In what ways is it a meaningful experience for them? What unanticipated responses did they have during their journey to Arabia?

    2. After students have viewed the segments and recorded information, discuss this questions with the class. What do they think it is like to be a pilgrim in Mecca? Why do they think Hajj is one of the Five Pillars? What other religions incorporate the idea of pilgrimage?

Part VII: Culminating Activity

  1. After students have looked more closely at each of the Five Pillars, divide them into pairs. Instruct each pair to create a poster about the Five Pillars to be displayed in the classroom and around the school to help educate their schoolmates about Islam. Drawing on the information they gathered and recorded on their Student Response Sheet as a resource, each poster must include: a listing of the Five Pillars, a description of each of the practices and how people fulfill these obligations, and illustrations or images that relate to each of the pillars. (For the illustrations and images, it may be helpful for students to view the segments and Web sites again, looking specifically for prevalent visual images and symbols, if they do not remember what they have seen previously. They can also look at the sites below for imagery.) Have students share their completed posters with the class, discussing the information and images used on the posters. To visually enhance their poster, students can use PBS LearningMedia to search for images of Islamic Art. Alternatively, students may wish to create a PowerPoint presentation, infographic, or video.
  2. Ask students to take out the list they brainstormed in the introductory activity. Ask them to review and revise the list based on what they’ve learned in this lesson. How have their conceptions of Islam changed?

Community Connections

If possible, have your students meet with Muslims in your community to learn about their religious practices and views. Interview Muslims who have participated in Hajj, and talk to Muslims during the month of Ramadan to learn about fasting and almsgiving. Contact religious leaders or scholars to learn more about prayer and belief. Be sure to clarify the difference between teaching religion and teaching about religion in the classroom for any presenters.

This is not an overview of one religion, this is pure Islamic indoctrination that would be taught to someone that is about to become a Muslim. Paid for with American tax dollars via the Dept. of Education and PBS. The same stealth jihadists whose Lesson Plan Teaches Kids to Sympathize with Muslim Suicide Bombers.

        You could be onto something there but I was thinking more along the lines of hanging, firing squad, gas chamber, electric chair, and lethal injection. Hey, wait! Those are the five methods of capital punishment used in the US, a better lesson.

  • dennis

    My basic problem with this articles subject matter is that it comes very close to violating the constitutional provision which prohibits government from establishing any religion. I say that because it is focusing only on Islam, and does not seem to allow any discussion about how other religions function, or enable debate as to the differences in the belief systems, including the religious related laws that each religion follows. Though teaching and promoting your belief system can be taught in a house of worship, as long as it does not preach violence, I personally believe that it does not belong in public funded schools. To engage in the study of any belief system would likely belong in a history class where some discussion might be entertained about how the religious beliefs and practices of any religion may have impacted history and civic society. That approach would likely generate some serious debate as to the impact, positive or negative, that the particular belief system has had on society, and it may be both appropriate and necessary to limit that discussion to adults only at Universities and Colleges.

    • emma

      It’s indoctrination of children and getting them to recite the shahada, which then converts them. This is not mentioned deliberately. islam does not allow other religions, as islam is superior, apparently. islam does not belong anywhere on the planet, let alone a school!!

    • CreoleGumbo

      I agree with you. Maybe this will be the death knell of the DOE.

  • Mahou Shoujo

    There should be displays of how islam is being practiced today, female genital mutilation beheadings, child marriages, slavery, rape murder and theft.

    • blbc

      Bet the first pillar is, “Beat your child wife after she’s been mutilated, and if she tries to leave, soak her in acid.”

      • Mahou Shoujo

        That is in keeping with the overall view of how women should be treated according to islam.

    • Patriotic American

      Betsy DeVos advocated the same type of indoctrination for use in Michigan schools, and funded a pro-Islamic “building bridges” curriculum that she strongly advocated be part of the Common Core curriculum. I’m with y’all, but I’m just saying, good luck with that.

  • robscottw

    We could have solved this problem on 9/12/2001.

    But, the American people don’t yet realize that the enemy lives amongst us.

    And I can’t say here what needed to be done then, or now.

    • William

      I’ll say it.If anyone has the GUTS to do what needs to be done. Our government IS NOT going to protect us. It is being left up to US, the ARMED citizens to resolve this problem once and for all to restore our country back to its rightful place. WE, the ARMED CITIZENS must take this matter to the streets, let the MOOSLIM blood run in the streets. There are enough of us, armed, that we should have no problem taking our this scourge. If there was any reason for the Second Amendment, this is a perfect example.

      • CreoleGumbo

        I agree with you William but we cannot fight the US military, which they will surely send just as they did in Waco Texas and other places. We are also not organized, which is more important in winning than the strength and type of armaments.

        It is my belief that the government has been putting down militas all over the country in anticipation of a revolt. Shortly after Obama became POTUS a militia in our area, The Hutaree, were raided and members arrested. I suspect that this has been going on all over the country in addition to neutralizing the KKK. And to top that off the same FBI claims to have no ability to raid the over 22 jihadi training camps in the USA, including those in our area. Instead they are going after us. Why? Because ALL OF OUR GOVERNMENT AGENCIES, INCLUDING LAW ENFORCEMENT, HAS BEEN INFILTRATED BY MUSLIMS.

        • William

          Perhaps you may have been told different, but there was no military participation in the Waco siege. That was FBI, BATF and local law enforcement. I will also disagree with your assumption that the military will turn against the citizens of this country. It is my firm belief that they will not do so. My nephew was in the Army and we had the same discussion many times. He has stated before that the military WILL NOT attack its own citizens. And one more thing. Even if the military did attack the citizen, there are many more of us than them that are armed. But I firmly believe that will not happen.

          • CreoleGumbo

            Sorry for the over broad generalization about Waco. I know that FBI is not the US military but it is a governmental policing agency; and police, irrespective of their name are trained to take orders. They will fire on whoever they are told to fire upon!

            As of 2008 there were 65,000 foreign born serving in the US military – and that data is 10 years old and more foreign born have been taken every day. They will not hesitate to shoot you or any other American citizen because more and more of them are not native born Americans. And if the American citizen who they are facing are armed and firing on them they will definitely shoot back. And I am sure you know that police and military and FBI, etc are all trained to shoot to kill.


  • livingengine

    Here is the Access Islam video on Muslim women. It is remarkable in its
    avoidance of topics like: polygamy, gender segregation, divorce,
    arranged marriage, and treatment of non-Muslim women. There is nothing
    like this for any other faith in public schools.

  • gia

    Pillars are
    1.kill infidels
    2..rape uncovered whore women
    3 lie and steal to gain more assests for Islam
    4.invade every western country .
    5.pray to Satan/Allah five times a day!
    If this were my children I would be furious ! I would flat out refuse to let my vulnerable child participate in this vile book report!
    I would also sue the school district for teaching religion in the classroom.

  • IzlamIsTyranny

    Anyone notice how the atheists who bleated like stuck pigs to get Christianity and prayer out of public schools haven’t done anything to stop islum? What happened atheist SJW’s? Cat get your tongue? Or islamic petrodollars got your pocket book?

    • CreoleGumbo

      Yes I have noticed.
      But it seems that our legal system and/or whoever makes these decisions in DOE either have not noticed OR they simply planned on playing this shell game all along as a means of getting Islam into our society.

      This is just another example of an incorrect legal decision and interpretation of The Constitution that has simply been carried along in time without being further addressed just like the stupid interpretation of birthright citizenship and abortion. NOTHING IN THE US CONSTITUTION DEMANDS SEPARATION OF CHURCH AND STATE. The Constitution forbids government from establishing a religion. It does not authorize the government to forbid the practice of religion, forbid the mention of God, etc. The courts in this country have illegally banished Christianity and that issue seems to have not been challenged just like the stupid birthright citizenship issue has not been challenged.

      Jeff Sessions has his work cut out for him. Lets just hope that he does it.

    First Pillar: Cutting the throats of goats.

    • blbc

      I said (above): Bet the first pillar is, “Beat your child wife after she’s been mutilated, and if she tries to leave, soak her in acid.”

  • FNLehner

    Serious questions: Why is there such a blatant double standard amongst liberal teachers today, elevating Islam, uniquely, beyond reproach? Do these teachers not realize that their own personal freedom is not compatible with a Sharia observant society? Do they actually not know that they are sowing the seeds of their own demise by promoting Islamic canon? “Liberalism” does not survive in Sharia compliant societies. This is clearly seen around the world today, and throughout history. How do the teachers actually not know this?

    • CreoleGumbo

      I think it is because all of the teachers have been brainwashed themselves and made to feel “White Guilt.” Don’t forget that the Islamists began infiltrating our country in the 1960s with the goal to take over. I learned about the evils of Islam in high school history – how it spread by the sword. But when I got to college in the late 60s and early 70s I read the Autobiography of Malcolm X, which proclaimed Islam to a religion of peace and love. This was reiterated in college classes.

      The teachers of today are the 2nd and or 3rd generation of Americans who have been exposed to the religion of peace nonsense.

    • WM1

      No, they do not. “And God gave them over to a depraved/reprobate mind.” (Romans Chapter 1) God’s wrath is being unleashed against America for her unrepentant sins and rebellion against Him. Read the entire chapter, as well as 1 Corinthians 10: 1-11. In those two passages (among many others) you will find the answers to your concerns.

  • The FALSE PAGANISM OCCULT-IDEOLOGY of islam is NOT a religion PERIOD, it started in mecca by FALSE prophet muhammad!!

    Only Devout Judaism and Messianic Jewish and Christians are RIGHT, because we have same ONE TRUE GOD the FATHER who art in Heaven Above!!

    Please Pray for our Judeo-Christian Nation United States of America and Israel-Yisrael Everyday!! “Pray Without Ceasing.” ( 1 Thessalonians 5:17 KJV )!!

  • joanofark06

    I supported Trump, until about a month after he was elected. Then I started seeing that he wasn’t going to make “America Great Again”, at all. Has he said, or done anything about islam being taught in schools? No.. How about the almost 50 muslim training camps in this country? Anything from Trump on that? No. So, here’s a few more articles about Islam in schools:

    Texas attorney general takes notice but ACLU ‘nowhere to be found’

    Rebellion Grows Against Muslim Indoctrination In Schools

    Brooklyn public school won’t serve food at prom until 9PM because of Ramadan

    New York high school setting aside classrooms for Muslim prayer

    I have more, but that should let ya know, how islam is taking over our schools, slowly but surely, and guess who has their hand in making this happen? Our so called “ally”, Saudi Arabia.
    But could someone get back to me, when they hear of Trump doing something about this? I’m still waiting for America to be great again!

  • Alleged Comment

    IF Christianity cannot be taught. So can Islam. Remove the posters. You liebs wanted separation of Church and State, remember?

  • Janet

    WTH! I can’t believe that this is being taught in our schools and in such detail. What ever happen to American history? If you talk to any young people they don’t know anything about it. Sad but true. Makes me furious! If I had a kid in that school I’d be all over it! Where’s the pain in the a** ACLU? This is nuts!

  • Roy Jennings

    What will be the trigger that says to the West enough is enough? Seriously if it does not come soon its an Islamic World within 10-20 years or a World War. Maybe thats the plan of the Globalist supremacists?

  • iprazhm

    We must end this indoctrination of America’s public school children into the savage barbarity of Islam, through the teaching of lies and the rewrite of historical fact. End Common Core – End the Dept of Education.

  • Ichabod Crain

    Well I think it is fine to learn the fundamentals of all religions. This is not indoctrination, if done right. However, the material is incomplete and gives a false picture of Islam as being much like any other religion. The material must also include the concepts of Sharia, Jihad, Taqiyya, the Kafir, Jew hatred, and the goals of the religion ie: Supremacy. They should be handled to exactly the same depth as all the other concepts listed above. I would not sue or petition the school to stop teaching this program. Rather, I would welcome it, but insist it be taught truthfully, as I suggest.

    • IzlamIsTyranny

      Do you really think ANY uni or college in the USA would ever teach the ugly, fascist, totalitarian truth about islum? Any professor without tenure probably wouldn’t last a semester and any professor w/tenure would probably be put on indefinite paid leave.
      Perhaps in public schools the teacher’s union might stand up for such a teacher (i.e. who taught the ugly, fascist, totalitarian, Jew hating truth about islum) but I doubt it.
      The islamic worm has already turned…

  • ladywarrior

    I sent an email to President Trump at the White House about this issue and the poor job Secretary DeVos is doing. I also called the Department of Education and left a message that as a taxpayer and American I want these programs stopped immediately. Please join me….it take very little time to do and if enough people do it we can get rid of this insanity in our schools.

    Well, they had best do the stations of the cross too
