In the Name of God, the Merciful, the Compassionate

Praise be to God, who revealed to His servant [Muhammad (S)] the Book, and has not placed therein any crookedness. [But He has made it] straight to give warning of stem punishment from Him, and to bring to the believers who do good works the news that theirs will be a fair reward.

Who believe in him [Muhammad (S)] and honor him and help him, and follow the light [the Qur'an] that was revealed with him [Qur’an 7:157].

the day when their excuse avails not the evildoers, and theirs is the curse, and theirs the ill abode [Qur’an 40:52].
