Righteousness

In the name of Allah Most Gracious Most Merciful
Al Quran

Surah 2 Ayah 176-177 Juz 2


It is not righteousness
That ye turn your faces
Towards East or West;
But it is righteousness-
To believe in Allah
And the Last Day,
And the Angels,
And the Book
And the Messengers;
To spend of your substance,
Out of love for Him,
For your kin,
For orphans,
For the needy,
For the wayfarer,
For those who ask,
And for the ransom of slaves;
To be steadfast in prayer,
And give zakat,
To fulfill the contracts
Which ye have made;
And to be firm and patient,
In pain (and suffering)
And adversity,
And throughout
All periods of panic.
Such are the people
Of truth, the God –fearing.
