All Praise is due to Allaah, we praise Him, and seek His help and forgiveness. We seek refuge in Allaah, the Most High, from the evils of our own selves and from our wicked deeds. Whomsoeverhas been guided by Allaah, none can misguide him, and whomsoever has been misguided by Allaah,none can guide him. I bear witness that there is no true god worthy of being worshippedexcept Allaah, Alone, without partner or associate. And I bear witness that Muhammad is Histrue slave and Messenger.
O you who believe! Fear Allaah as He should be feared, and die not exceptin a state of Islaam (as Muslims with complete submission to Allaah).
O mankind! Be dutiful to your Lord, Who created you from a single person(Adam) and from him He created his wife, and from them both He createdmany men and women, and fear Allaah through Whom you demand yourmutual (rights) and (do not cut the relations of) the wombs (kinship). Surely, Allaah is ever an All-Watcher over you.
O you who believe! Keep your duty to Allaah and fear Him, and speak (always) the Truth, He will direct you to do righteous good deeds and willforgive you your sins. And whosoever obeys Allaah and His Messenger, he hasindeed achieved a great success.
Al-Ahzaab 33: 70-71
