This is much more evident in relation to transactions, which constitute another aspect of the Islamic Sharee'ah. Accordingly, we notice that all aspects of Islam are interconnected through a moral code for the attainment of a principled goal.
Al-Bukhari and Muslim reported that 'Abdullah bin 'Umar, may Allh be pleased with him, narrated that the Prophet, sallallhu 'alayhi wa sallam, said: "Islam has five pillars: To testify that there is none worthy of worship but Allh and that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allh, to establish the prayer, to pay alms (Zakah), to make pilgrimage to Makkah and to fast the month of Ramadan." Salah (prayer) linguistically means supplication, but in the Sharee'ah, it means words and actions that start with Takbeer - saying Allhu Akbar - Allh is the Greatest - and end with Tasleem - saying Assalamu Alaykum - peace be upon you (at the end of the prayer), accompanied with the intention of some specific conditions (the conditions that must be present and carried out before performing the prayer).

The Prophet, sallallhu 'alayhi wasallam, said: "O Allh, make this little slave of Yours and his mother beloved to Your believing Slaves and make the believers beloved to them." The Muslim's keenness on endearing himself to others should not be for a worldly purpose; it should be observed in obedience to the Sharee'ah of Allh, The Almighty, that commands Muslims to be brothers and to love one another.
I hear that they have no effect on the woman's menses cycle, but does the Sharee'ah (Islamic Legislation) permit its usage?
In Islam, the term 'Aqeedah stands in parallel with that of Sharee'ah, because Islam consists of 'Aqeedah or a creed and a Sharee'ah.
