Glory to You, O Lord, and Blessed is Your Majesty.
There is no God besides You.
I seek refuge with God, from the condemned devil.
(In the Name of God, the Most Gracious, Most Merciful)
... and Allah, The Praised and Exalted,
"And if My servants ask about Me-
Behold, I am near!
I respond to the call of the person who calls unto Me,
whenever he calls unto Me.
Let them respond unto Me then,
and Believe in Me,
so that you might follow the Right Path."
"Believe in what" I "bestowed from on High,"
"and worship Me alone,"
"confirming the Truth."
"And, of Me,
of Me, be conscious..."
and I will Remember you,
and be thankful unto Me,
and do not reject Faith."
(select Qur'anic gems: 2:186, 2:91, 20:14, 2:41 and 2:152)
