Alif Lam Mim
This is the Scripture in which there is no doubt,
containing guidance for those who are mindful of God,
who believe in the unseen,
keep up the prayer,
and give out of what We have provided for them;
those who believe in the revelation sent down to you [Muhammad],
and in what was sent before you,
those who have firm faith in the Hereafter.
Such people are following their Lord’s guidance and it is they who will prosper.
[Surah Al-Baqara 1-5]

The trustworthy, honest Muslim merchant will be with the martyrs on the Day of Resurrection.
Saying of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh)
Every soul will taste death and you will be paid in full only on the Day of Resurrection.
Whoever is kept away from the Fire and admitted to the Garden will have triumphed.
The present world is only an illusory pleasure:
You are forbidden to eat carrion; blood; pig’s meat; any animal over which any name other than God’s has been invoked; any animal strangled, or victim of a violent blow or a fall, or gored or savaged by a beast of prey, unless you still slaughter it [in the correct manner]; or anything sacrificed on idolatrous altars.
You are also forbidden to allot shares [of meat] by drawing marked arrows - a heinous practice.
Today the disbelievers have lost all hope that you will give up your religion.
Do not fear them: fear Me.
Today I have perfected your religion for you, completed My blessing upon you, and chosen as your religion islam: [total devotion to God];
but if any of you is forced by hunger to eat forbidden food, with no intention of doing wrong, then God is most forgiving and merciful.
[Surah Al-Maaida 5:3]
Poem by Rudyard Kipling
Lines from the poem inscribed on the wall above the players' entrance to the Centre Court at Wimbledon.
If you can keep your head when all about you Are losing theirs and blaming it on you; If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you, But make allowance for their doubting too; If you can wait and not be tired by waiting, Or, being lied about, don’t deal in lies, Or, being hated, don’t give way to hating, And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise;
If you can dream—and not make dreams your master; If you can think—and not make thoughts your aim; If you can meet with triumph and disaster And treat those two impostors just the same; If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools, Or watch the things you gave your life to broken, And stoop and build ’em up with wornout tools;
If you can make one heap of all your winnings And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss, And lose, and start again at your beginnings And never breathe a word about your loss; If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew To serve your turn long after they are gone, And so hold on when there is nothing in you Except the Will which says to them: “Hold on”;
If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue, Or walk with kings—nor lose the common touch; If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you; If all men count with you, but none too much; If you can fill the unforgiving minute With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run— Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it, And—which is more—you’ll be a Man, my son!
My children's laughter
Surah An-Nas and Al-Fatihah
‘I seek refuge with the Lord of people,
the Controller of people,
the God of people,
against the harm of the slinking whisperer,
who whispers into the hearts of people,
whether they be jinn or people.’
[Surah An-Nas 114]
Praise belongs to God,
Lord of the Worlds,
the Lord of Mercy, the Giver of Mercy,
Master of the Day of Judgement.
It is You we worship;
it is You we ask for help.
Guide us to the straight path: the path of those You have blessed, those who incur no anger and who have not gone astray.
[Surah Al-Fatihah 1]
