This really great, casual conversation on Islam, in two parts, is between two young friends, a Muslim explaining his religion to a curious classmate. This is meant for a younger audience. For the first part, the video goes through the basics of Islamic theology and focuses on the five pillars of Islam. The second part, Yusuf goes through the various steps of the daily prayer ritual Muslims go through and explains the phrases used in the prayer and fasting.
