Introductory
 IN THE NAME OF ALLAH THE MERCIFUL THE CLEMENT 
 
Laudation to the God of majesty and glory! Obedience to him is a cause of approach and gratitude in increase of benefits. Every inhalation of the breath prolongs life and every expiration of it gladdens our nature; wherefore every breath confers two benefits and for every benefit gratitude is due.
Whose hand and tongue is capableTo fulfill the obligations of thanks to him?
Words of the most high: Be thankful, O family of David, and but few of myservants are thankful.
 It is best to a worshipper for his transgressionsTo offer apologies at the throne of God, Although what is worthy of his dignity No one is able to accomplish.
The showers of his boundless mercy have penetrated to every spot, and the banquet of his unstinted liberality is spread out everywhere. He tears not theveil of reputation of his worshippers even for grievous sins, and does notwithhold their daily allowance of bread for great crimes.
O bountiful One, who from thy invisible treasurySuppliest the Guebre and the Christian with food, How could’st thou disappoint thy friends,Whilst having regard for thy enemies?
He told the chamberlain of the morning breeze to spread out the emerald carpetand, having commanded the nurse of vernal clouds to cherish the daughters of  plants in the cradle of the earth, the trees donned the new year’s robe andclothed their breast with the garment of green foliage, whilst their offspring, the branches, adorned their heads with blossoms at the approach of the season of the roses. Also the juice of the cane became delicious honey by his power, andthe date a lofty tree by his care.
