"In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful. "
All praise and glory is only for Allah(God) . The First and the Last. The Manifest and the Hidden. The One Who has Power over all things. The Creator and the Sustainer of all that exists.
The One True Sovereign and King Whom all of
creation must obey and submit to for every second of their existence. The One True God Who
has the right to be worshipped and sanctified by all of the creation.
Praise and thanks be to Allah(God) who has favored us the children of Adam (as) by giving us a mind and senses with which we can realize His's Existence from the signs in the universe around us. Praise and thanks be to Allah again who sent to us the prophets and the messengers with clear proofs and undeniable arguments to guide us to Him and to teach us how to know Him .
We praise and thank Allah(God) for all of His bounties and we humbly ask Him to continue to bless and bestow upon us from His's Grace, Bounty, and Mercy. I bear witness that there is none worthy of worship except Allah(God), the One and Only, Who has no partner or equal, the Generous and the Forgiving. I bear witness that our leader Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) is His's servant and Messenger, the beloved of Allah(God) and the very best of all of the creation of Allah . Allah(God) honored the Prophet(pbuh) by giving him the Glorious Quran.
Every prophet was given a Miracle to prove to the people that he was truly sent from the Divine. The Prophet(pbuh) was sent as the Final Messenger to all of mankind until the Last Day. So the Prophet(pbuh) was given an enduring Miracle that lasted throughout the ages. That Miracle is the Quran, the greatest Miracle that was given to any prophet.
Allah(God) says in the Quran "I have only created Jinns and men, that they may serve Me." (Quran: 51/56). In this verse Allah clearly tells us that the purpose of our existence is so that we may discover, know and serve Him.
Allah(God) has told us in other verses that only in His's remembrance do the hearts find solace. Meaning that when we remember Him our hearts will be tranquil and at peace. This act of bringing Him to mind, which is an action of our heart, draws us close to Him. Not only does remembering Him bring this solace into our hearts but it is also among the most beloved of acts to Him.
(pbuh) = peace be upon him
