Friday Sermon – Khalifatul Masih V – Mirza Masroor Ahmad – Year 2017

Allah is the Greatest, Allah is the Greatest I bear witness that there is none worthy of worship except Allah I bear witness that Muhammad (saw) is the Messenger of Allah. Come to Prayer Come to success Allah is the Greatest, Allah is the Greatest. There is none worthy of worship except Allah.

Peace be upon you all, I bear witness that there is none worthy of worship except Allah He is alone and has no partner and I bear witness that Muhammad (saw) is His Servant and Messenger After this I seek refuge with Allah from Satan the accursed.

In the name of Allah, the Gracious, the Merciful. All praise belongs to Allah, Lord of all the worlds. The Gracious, the Merciful. Master of the Day of Judgment. Thee alone do we worship and Thee alone do we implore for help. Guide us in the right path –

The path of those on whom Thou hast bestowed Thy blessings, those who have not incurred Thy displeasure, and those who have not gone astray. Many men and women write to me and also tell me verbally when they meet me that: ‘We are expecting a child. Kindly, pray in this regard’ Or [they ask]:

‘What should we pray for in in favour of the expected child?’ Occasionally it also happens that [some ask]: ‘We have children. They are now moving from childhood into becoming adults. They are about to step into [adulthood]. We are constantly worried about their tarbiyyat [upbringing].

What prayers should we offer for them? How should we undertake their tarbiyyat so that our children remain on the right path, and remain steadfast in good deeds?’ By the Grace of Allah, the majority of the Community think in this manner and they are

Focused on how they should undertake the tarbiyyat of their children or they at least show some concern for this. This is a great blessing and favour of Allah the Almighty upon us Ahmadis that due to accepting the Promised Messiah (as), we think in this manner.

In this age, where worldly desires have engulfed everyone, we are not only concerned about the worldly well-being of our children, rather, we also strive to care about the improvement of their faith. Allah the Almighty has also bestowed this favour upon us Muslims – provided that Muslims,

While paying attention to this, also put this into practice that at various places in the Holy Qur’an supplications have also been taught for the various stages of tarbiyyat that a child goes through, from before the birth of the child. Likewise, [the Holy Qur’an] has also taught the methods of tarbiyyat and

Has also drawn the attention of parents to their responsibilities. If we offer these supplications, and spend our lives in this way and pay attention to the tarbiyyat of our children, then we can send forth a pious progeny.

There is no doubt that the tarbiyyat of children is not an easy affair and especially in this age, where at every turn attractions created by Satan entice us in various ways every day. It, therefore, can be a very difficult task.

However, Allah the Almighty has taught us prayers and methods, for this very reason and that is so that we can save ourselves as well as our children from the onslaughts of Satan. Nevertheless, for this [to work], constant prayers, Help of Allah the Almighty and hard work and efforts are necessary.

There is a need for a continuous Jihad [self-reformation]. A true believer is indeed expected that being attached to Allah the Almighty, he should save himself as well as his children from the onslaughts of Satan, instead of giving in to despair and tiring and imposing negative feelings upon oneself while being frightened.

A harrowing example of negative thinking, came before my eyes a few days ago in a letter in which a person had written that ‘in today’s world there is a competition for wealth, immoral actions are at their peak, ever-new forms of intoxicants

And their subsequent use is being widely spread, the general moral depravity of the society is constantly increasing and for this reason, (the writer says), I should certainly marry or I am married but it would be better if I remained childless or that I should not have any children.’

This is an extremely pessimistic thought. In other words, after accepting defeat by Satan, and after deeming him to be the source and bearer of all powers, one is taking this action as though Allah the Almighty has no power for the tarbiyyat

Of children, or that He should bless our efforts and our prayers, God forbid, or that He should save us and our children from the onslaughts of Satan, regardless of how much effort we exert and prayers we offer. In other words, we will grant absolute freedom to the followers of Satan,

Whilst the offspring of believers will slowly and gradually cease to exist. Hence, this way of thinking is extremely dangerous and disappointing. The thought of a follower of the Promised Messiah (as) cannot be as such, nor should it be.

In order to partake in the revolution for which the Promised Messiah (as) was sent to the world by Allah the Exalted, we must use our capabilities and faculties to the utmost and we must also infuse this spirit into our offspring.

We must pray for our objectives and bring our children up [in a manner] so that despite all of the filth and indecencies found in the society, we will not allow Satan to be victorious, Insha’Allah [God willingly]. We must endeavour to establish the Kingdom of God on this earth.

Thus, there is no need to be disheartened. Rather, we must act in accordance with the prescribed path by Allah the Exalted with determination. As I mentioned, Allah the Exalted has taught us prayers in the Holy Qur’an in order to be blessed with virtuous offspring.

At one place, He taught us a prayer through Hazrat Zachariah (as) and the prayer is as follows. [ARABIC] ‘My Lord, grant me from Thyself pure offspring; surely, Thou art the Hearer of prayer.’ Allah the Almighty has Himself taught this prayer by stating ‘I am the One who answers supplications.’

Therefore, you should also say that ‘O Allah, as you answer prayers, also answer our prayers and bestow us with virtuous progeny. Thus, when there is a desire to have virtuous offspring, it should be accompanied with prayers. However, along with this, every parent should also adopt these virtuous thoughts and pious deeds,

Which are the characteristics of virtuous people and prophets. At times, mothers are attentive towards religious matters and are [true] worshippers, whereas fathers are not. On occasions, fathers are [attentive towards religious matters], whereas mothers are not fulfilling their obligations.

In order for the progeny to be virtuous and in order to be safeguarded from the evil influences of the time it is necessary that prior to desiring children and prior to the birth of children, the husband and wife both should act virtuously.

From among the incidents of the companions of the Promised Messiah (as), we find one incident in which the Promised Messiah (as) has prayed for the progeny of a person. However, the Promised Messiah (as) stipulated the prayer with the concerned person developing a pure change within himself. That person was not yet an Ahmadi.

He had not pledged initiation to the Promised Messiah (as). Nevertheless, it was perhaps a virtue of his due to which the Promised Messiah (as) prayed for him. This [person] is Munshi ‘Ata Muhammad Sahib, the revenue collector. He says that I was a non-Ahmadi and was distant from religion.

A friend of his would preach Ahmadiyyat to him. However, he says that I never paid any attention. One day, he emphatically told me about this and did not leave me alone saying that I should listen to his words and reflect on them.

I said that is fine, if this is what you are saying then I will request you for a prayer. If it is answered, I will reflect on this. He [Munshi Sahib] says that the prayers of the Promised Messiah (as) are also answered. Hence, request him to pray for me.

Furthermore, the prayer is for this purpose that I have three wives and none of them have borne children. I married one wife after the other in order to have children. Request him to pray that I am bestowed with a son and that this son in born from my first wife.

He says that he wrote this letter on my behalf. After some time, a reply was received from Maulvi Abdul Karim Sahib saying that the Promised Messiah (as) has prayed and said that you will be granted a son, however, the condition is that you repent as Zachariah (as) repented.

Munshi Sahib says that I was very irreligious in those days. I was a drunkard and corrupt. Taking bribes was a normal habit of mine. What would I know about the repentance of Zachariah (as)? Hence, he says that in order to find out about the repentance of Zachariah (as), I went to the mosque.

The Imam of the Mosque was astonished to see me – a drunkard and a debauch – inside the mosque. Nevertheless, when I asked the question, he was unable to answer me.” He then says: “I then went to Maulvi Fateh Din Sahib Ahmadi in another village.

I asked him upon which he said that the repentance of Zachariah (as) is to abstain from irreligiousness, earn lawfully, to regularly pray and fast and to visit the mosque more frequently. He says that upon hearing this, I began to act accordingly.

I refrained from alcohol, I abstained from taking bribes and became regular in praying and fasting. He says that a period of approximately four or five months had passed when one day, my wife (the eldest wife) began to cry. When she was examined by the midwife, her statement pointed towards

The fact that she may have conceived. Nevertheless, upon hearing her words I told her that I requested Mirza Sahib for prayers. This is a sign for having a child and there is no need to doubt it. He says that after a while, the symptoms of pregnancy started to become apparent

Upon which I began to tell people that I will be blessed with a son, who will be healthy as well as beautiful. Accordingly a son was born. He says that I pledged initiation following that and many other people from that area also pledged initiation.

Hence, if Allah the Exalted desires for a person to have a prosperous end, it also unfolds in this manner that the desire for children and having children becomes the means of their reform and pure change. The Promised Messiah (as) also stipulated the acceptance of his prayer

With that individual making a pious change within himself. Hence, when we offer the prayer of Zachariah (as) for our children, it is necessary for us to develop a pure change with ourselves as well. On the other hand I would like to also mention the case of another person who was mentioned to the

Promised Messiah (as) and that he is requesting for prayer to be blessed with a son or with a child and that he will subsequently pledge initiation. Upon this, the Promised Messiah (as) said, the essence of which is that ‘My claim is to be the Promised Messiah.

I have not claimed to have been sent to bestow people with offspring.’ His circumstances were completely different. With regards to him, as the Promised Messiah (as) was a prophet, he saw that his condition is such that could also be the means for him to stumble [further].

However, in the previous case Allah the Almighty desired for that person to have a prosperous end and there must have been some virtue as well. For that, the Promised Messiah (as) prayed and gave him the glad tidings of a boy after being informed by Allah the Almighty.

This should also be remembered that not everything is stipulated with another. Becoming an Ahmadi is not conditioned with [the acceptance of] a prayer. At times, people also write to me that if this occurs, we will become Ahmadis. Becoming an Ahmadi with conditions is not [the definition of] accepting faith.

Rather, it is forcing Allah the Exalted to accept our conditions, whereas Allah the Exalted does not provide guidance according to one’s conditions. It is necessary for us to follow His guidance, not for Him to follow ours. Nevertheless, as I mentioned, whilst we pray for our children, we must also develop

A pure change within ourselves. The prayer of Zachariah (as) is mentioned in Surah Al Anbiya of the Holy Quran – [ARABIC] My Lord, leave me not childless, and Thou art the Best of inheritors. [Al-Anbiya v 90] Since God Almighty has been called the ‘Best of Inheritors’,

It is clear from this prayer that one should not pray to be granted offspring that can become their heirs in their worldly affairs, but instead such heirs be granted from God Almighty who give preference to their faith over the world. So evidently only those people can pray for this

Who themselves give preference to their faith over the world. If man is engulfed in worldly pursuits then how is it possible for him to pray for pious heirs? If a woman only has children on the basis that it is a natural desire for women to bear children,

Or merely because it is the desire of the husband, then many a times such children become a source of trial. The desire to have children is a legitimate desire, but on top of that one must also pray for pious heirs.

Whilst expounding on this, that we should not only wish for children to be heirs and instead wish for such heirs who are pious, righteous and servants of faith, the Promised Messiah (as) in one place states: “The trial surrounding children is a great trial indeed.

If the children are righteous then why should one worry? God Almighty Himself states: That God Himself becomes the Friend and Protector of the righteous. Even if you leave hundreds of thousands of pounds for an individual, if they are ill-fated, they will waste it in immoral acts, return to poverty

And fall into such trials and difficulties which were destined for him. Whoever aligns his thinking with the Will and Desire of God Almighty, he will be content with his offspring. What is God’s will and desire? That we give preference to our faith over the world.”

If this happens, then as the Promised Messiah (as) has stated, you will be content with your children because such a person will pray for his children and endeavour to give them a good upbringing. He then states “This can only take place when you strive for this quality and pray in this regard.

Only then will God Almighty look after him. But if he is dishonest, then he has no choice but that his end will be in Hell, and God will not care for him in the slightest. Then, in another place, whilst giving advice about children the Promised Messiah (as) states:

“Become righteous yourselves and become an example of piety and righteousness for your children, and make efforts and pray to make them God-fearing and devout. Make efforts for them in this matter, to the same extent which you make efforts to gather wealth for them.

The least one can do in training their children is to teach them about religion and for them to remain firm to their faith with the same effort they makes for them in worldly terms. More effort is made in worldly terms and much less attention is given to their religious training.

For this reason some people are put in trials and they face difficulties.” He continues “People have a desire to have offspring but at times I have heard wealthy people saying that there should be some children to inherit all this property.

It is as if their desire for children is merely for them to inherit their wealth, lest their property falls into the hands of others.” The Promised Messiah (as) further states “they do not realise that when they die their associates and children all become indifferent.

If one desires children then it should be in order for them to be servants to the faith.” God Almighty has taught us the following prayer in the Holy Quran: [ARABIC] And make my seed righteous for me. I do turn to Thee; and, truly, I am of those who submit to Thee (Al-Ahqaf 16)

Here the prayer is for the reformation of children, and alongside it has been acknowledged that the individual will become, or is among those who submit to and obey God Almighty. Hence, when praying for children it is necessary to act upon the commandments of God and to obey Him.

Only then will the prayer be accepted. Therefore, it is a great responsibility on the mothers as well as fathers that they should pray continuously to God Almighty for the sake of the reformation of their children and for their good upbringing and establish a good example for them.

If their own examples are contrary to this teaching given by God Almighty; if they are in contradiction of the admonition which mothers and fathers give to their children, then there will remain no good intention in such a prayer, and when such action is not taking place

Then the complaint that we have prayed a lot for our offspring yet still they have gone astray and put us in trouble, is then baseless. God Almighty has then taught us a very comprehensive prayer in the Holy Quran i.e.

Those people who wish to be protected from the attacks of Satan and are protected. Those who desire to be the servants of the Gracious God, among their traits is that they make this supplication: [ARABIC] ‘Our Lord, grant us of our wives and children the delight of our eyes,

And make us a model for the righteous. (Al-Furqan v 75) This prayer is for offspring and for life partners. Both men and women should make this supplication. When a wife and husband desiring righteous offspring pray, then even after the birth of their

Children their work does not end, but instead the mother and father, husband and wife are guardians and leaders in their own spheres. This right will only be fulfilled when they themselves tread the path of righteousness, they pray for their children and they keep watch over their actions.

The Promised Messiah (as) has written about this verse in great detail. He stated in one place that there is another reason for marriage which has been referred to in Surah Al Furqan of the Holy Quran, and that is: [ARABIC]

Meaning the believers are those who say, ‘Our Lord, grant us of our wives and children the delight of our eyes, and make our wives and children righteous and make us a model for them. Hence, here again the Promised Messiah (as) has guided mothers and fathers to show a good

Practical example alongside this prayer that we become a model for them. The meaning of becoming a model is that we display a practical example. Hence, with every prayer, God Almighty has repeatedly advised us in the Holy Quran that we must watch over our deeds if we wish to have righteous offspring.

The Promised Messiah (as) then mentions regarding the desire to have a progeny and why we should have this desire. Also, the purpose of man’s creation should be kept in mind while desiring to have a progeny or at the time of their birth.

Moreover, one should also assess their practise and conduct and be concerned about their own moral reformation so that one’s offspring is also virtuous and pious. It should not be the case that one should only produce children simply for the reason that they become heirs to their wealth and fortunes.

Thus, in what order should one offer this prayer & the manner in which this prayer should be offered, the Promised Messiah (as) has explained this in detail. ‘One should ponder as to why one desires to have children? This should not be limited to merely a natural inclination

Just as one feels thirst or hunger. In fact, when this [desire to have a progeny] exceeds a certain measure then one should also pay heed towards their moral reformation. Allah the Almighty has created man so that he may worship Him, just as Allah the Almighty states:

‘And I have not created the Jinn and the men but that they may worship Me.’ However, if one does not become a Momin [believer]; and does not devote himself to the servitude of God; and does no fulfil the true objective of his creation; and does not fulfil the

Due rights of worship, and instead spends his life immersed in immorality, falsehood and sin then such a person’s desire to have a progeny will only result in him leaving behind a successor who will commit sins. What stone has he left unturned for which he desires a progeny [to continue his deeds]?’

The Promised Messiah (as) further states: ‘Thus, until one does not desire for a progeny which is religious, full of piety and serves faith while displaying complete obedience to Allah the Almighty, such a desire is completely futile, in fact it is a form of sin.

Instead of describing them as Baqiat Salihaat [enduring good works], it will be deemed more appropriate to describe them Baqiat Sayi’at [enduring works of evil].’ It will not be a virtuous and pious progeny that one leaves behind, in fact such a person will leave behind a progeny that commits sins.

The Promised Messiah (as) further states: ‘If a person states that he longs for a virtuous and pious progeny which shall serve faith (which indeed is a great desire to have), however this will merely be a claim unless he makes an effort to improve his own condition.’

One desires for a virtuous progeny and yet their own condition is completely contrary to that. Many people come to me and request prayers for a virtuous and pious progeny and regarding their own prayers their response is that we try to observe all the prayers. Those who do not even observe their obligatory prayers,

What can be said of their own level of piety? The Promised Messiah (as) states: ‘If one lives a life of disobedience and falsehood and yet claims to desire for a virtuous and pious offspring, then he stands a complete liar in his claim.

Prior to desiring for a virtuous and pious progeny, it is necessary that he reforms himself and leads a righteous life, only then will his desire come to fruition. It is only then that such a progeny will truly be worthy of being called Baqiat Salihaat [enduring good works].

However, if this desire is only so that the legacy of one’s name remains and they leave behind heirs for their wealth and fortune, then regardless of how renowned and famous that person may be, according to me its Shirk [idolatry].’ Further expounding upon this, the Promised Messiah (as) states:

‘Another thing is that people have a great longing to have a progeny and they even have one as well but never has it been observed that they strive and show concern for their progeny’s moral training, and to make them pious and obedient to Allah the Almighty.

They do not pray for them & nor do they take into account the stages of their training & development.’ Little attention is paid towards prayers and also towards their moral training. The Promised Messiah (as) further states: ‘My own condition is such that there is not a

Single prayer of mine in which I do not pray for my friends, children and wife.’ The Promised Messiah (as) further states: ‘There are many parents who teach bad habits to their children. When they learn to commit ill acts in their childhood, they do not admonish them.

Consequently, they become more and more bold and brazen.’ If they are not stopped in their childhood and guided with love during their early years then gradually they will increase in their ill actions. In another place, the Promised Messiah (as) states:

‘People desire for a progeny but not so that they may serve the faith but rather that they leave behind their heirs in this world. Once they do have children of their own, they show no concern for their moral training and neither towards the reformation of their beliefs.’

It is also important to teach them about their faith. It should not be the case that they are completely occupied in pursue of their secular education and worldly endeavours and thus parents do not pay any attention to teach them about their faith and nor make any arrangements for them to be taught.

It is extremely important to teach them about their faith and their beliefs. The Promised Messiah (as) further states: ‘Nor do they reform their moral condition.’ The standards of the moral code perceived here are different to the ones that Allah the Almighty has

Taught us in the Holy Quran which are in fact of the highest standard. We should not only seek to acquire the standards of worldly morals but in fact we should also search for the standard of morals which Allah the Almighty has taught us and which Islam teaches us

And have been demonstrated to us by the Holy Prophet’s (saw) own practise. These are the standards of morals which we then have to inculcate in our future progenies. The Promised Messiah (as) states: Remember that one who does not understand the significance of the relations of his kinship cannot have a perfect faith.

If he is bereft from it true comprehension then how can one expect him to perform good deeds? Allah the Almighty states: ‘Our Lord, grant us of our wives and children the delight of our eyes, and make us a model for the righteous.’

This can only be possible when they do not lead a life of disobedience and falsehood, in fact they lead a life like the servants of the Gracious God. They give precedence to God over everything else. After this God Almighty has then further elaborated by saying ‘and make us a model for the righteous’.

If one’s progeny is virtuous and righteous then surely he must be their Imam [head]. Therefore, this is also a prayer for one to become a righteous person i.e. one prays for himself to become righteous and prays that Allah the Almighty makes him tread upon

The paths that lead to righteousness and then includes the children in his prayer to also become righteous.’ The Promised Messiah (as) then states: “One should not only look after the upbringing of their child out of mercy or for the purpose of leaving behind an heir, rather one should always be mindful of

The clause [of the Holy Quran] “and make us a model for the righteous” i.e. children should serve their faith. The Promised Messiah (as) further adds: “however, how many people can say that they pray for their children to become champions of their faith? Only but a few would be able to concur.

Many people are completely heedless as to the reason why they should make an effort for their children and many only train them so they can become their heir. Their only desire is for them to assist them or to prevent others from acquiring their wealth.

Nevertheless, always remember that in such an instant their religion will be destroyed.” Therefore, with respect to children, one should always desire for their children to serve their faith. The parents of Waqfeen-e-Nau [scheme to devote children for the services of faith prior to birth]

Children should ensure that they guide their children towards their faith. The Promised Messiah (as) then further states: “I am a witness to the fact that people strive only in worldly pursuits. Their drive is the love of this world, rather than the love of God.

If one wishes to be bestowed children, they should supplicate with the intention [mentioned in the clause of the Quran] “and make us a model for the righteous” and with the hope that the child being granted should become a means for elevating the name of Islam.

When one has such a pious intention, then God Almighty has the Power to grant offspring in the manner He granted to Zechariah (as). However, I have seen that the insight of people does not extend beyond the fact that they think

‘our children should become heirs to our land and possessions, lest another seizes it’, however such an unfortunate one fails to comprehend the fact that when one dies, their friend, enemy or stranger become the one and the same.” The Promised Messiah (as) continues by saying:

“I have seen many people who have said: ‘pray for them to be granted offspring that can become heirs to their wealth, lest an outsider seizes it’ i.e. they wish to be granted offspring, even if they become rogues, [as if to say] this is the wisdom of the teachings of Islam that are left.

Amongst the Muslim community this has become commonplace and for this reason special effort is made in order to obtain a male offspring. The men in turn give no share of the inheritance to their sisters. The parents leave no share of their wealth for their daughters and instead leave everything

To their sons – which is contrary to the teachings of Islam – the men in return squander the wealth. This is what is taking place before us in the world and can be seen even today. Nevertheless, as I have already mentioned previously, the parents of Waqfeen-a-Nau children

Should pay special attention towards the moral training of their children and alongside this they must pray for them to achieve this goal; for their children to grow up to serve the faith in a manner whereby they give precedence to faith over all worldly pursuits.

It should not be the case that the children have simply been given the title of Waqf-e-Nau, and when they grow up they say that they will pursue their own career, rather the Waqfeen-e-Nau should first confer with the Jamaat if the jamaat is in need of their chosen [career] path or not.

Only if the Jamaat grant them permission should they pursue that particular career. Otherwise they should present themselves with the pure intention of fulfilling their pledge and the pledge made by their parents. Therefore, one should pray for their offspring and wish for them to be granted that progeny that will

Give precedence to their faith over all worldly objects, also that they become individuals who will go on to raise the honour of the parents and their family: who will elevate the name of their grandfather and forefathers. Then there are certain families whose fathers or grandfathers were companions of the

Promised Messiah (as), yet being from their progeny is not enough. Many people mention this fact with pride. Although this is an honour, yet one can only be proud when they begin to resonate those virtues. Simply being the children [of companions] is not enough, rather it is the duty of the parents to

Pray for their children to be able to replicate the virtues of their grandfathers and great grandfathers. When the parents pray in this manner, they will have to ponder over their own state, because they will only be able to follow in the footsteps of their parents and grandparents

If they follow those virtuous deeds themselves. Thus, alongside analysing oneself, until their very limit everyone should pray for their children to become righteous and develop a pure nature. The Promised Messiah (as) states: “The succour of God Almighty descends only upon those people who

Excel in virtuous deeds and do not remain at one station. These are the people who have a prosperous end.” In order for one to receive a prosperous end the Promised Messiah (as) stated: “One should pray constantly for oneself, as well as their wife and children.”

Then whilst advising us the Promised Messiah (as) stated: “perform those deeds which set the best and perfect example for your children.” This is the responsibility of the parents. The Promised Messiah (as) further elaborates by saying: “That is why it is necessary to first reform oneself.

If you become a righteous and temperate individual and also strive to please God, then Allah the Almighty will always show benevolence to you and your offspring. In the Holy Quran the incident of Khizr and Prophet Moses (as) recorded where it is mentioned

That together they constructed a wall belonging to a few orphaned children. Referring to this God Almighty states: “their father had been a righteous man” The condition of the children themselves was not mentioned, rather the parents were mentioned. The Promised Messiah (as) elaborates by saying: “Therefore, always strive to achieve this purpose.”

Always desire for your progeny to become pious, in return God Almighty will grant you the means and provisions for progress. Thus these are the fundamental principles towards which the Promised Messiah (as) advised us constantly. This in fact is an elaboration of the Quranic principles, that the conduct of the

Mother and father plays a big part in the upbringing of children. May Allah the Almighty grant every single one of us to become the best example for our children. May we fulfil the pledge of giving precedence to our faith over all worldly objects.

Instead of looking towards others to see what their condition is – as is the habit of some people – we should focus on ourselves. Only then will we be able to leave a pious progeny for the future that will tread the path of righteousness.

May we constantly pray for our children, so that God Almighty makes them the delight of our eyes, and enable this system to continue. All praise is due to Allah. We laud Him, we beseech help from Him and ask His protection; we confide in Him, we trust Him alone

And we seek protection against the evils and mischief of our souls and from the bad results of our deeds. Whomsoever He guides on the right path, none can misguide him; and whosoever He declares misled, none can guide him onto the right path.

And we bear witness that none deserves to be worshipped except Allah. We bear witness that Muhammad is His servant and Messenger. O servants of Allah! May Allah be merciful to you. Verily, Allah commands you to act with justice, to confer benefits upon each other

And to do good to others as one does to one ‘s kindred and forbids evil which pertain to your own selves and evils which affect others and prohibits revolts against a lawful authority. He warns you against being unmindful. You remember Allah; He too will remember you;

Call Him and He will make a response to your call. And verily divine remembrance is the highest virtue.
