of piety; who speaks of it praises the Lord; who seeks it, adores God, who dispenses
instruction in it, bestows alms; and who imparts it to its fitting objects, performs an act of
devotion to God. Knowledge enables its possessor to distinguish what is forbidden from
what is not; lights the way to Heaven; it is our friend in the desert, our companion in
solitude, our companion, when bereft of riends; it guides us to happiness; it sustains us in
misery; it is our ornament in the company of friends; it serves as an armor against our
enemies. With knowledge the creatures of Allah rises to the heights of goodness and to
noble position, associates with the sovereigns in this world and attains the perfection of
happiness in the next.

Meditation in God is my Capital. Reason and sound Logic is the rest of my Religion.
Love is the Foundationof my existence. Enthusiasm is the Vehicle of my life.
Contemplation of God is my companion. Faith is the source of my Power. Sorrow is my
friend. Knowledge is my weapon. Patience is my Garb abd Virtue. Submission to the
Divine Will, is my Pride. Truth is my Salvation. Worship is my habit. And in Prayer lies
the coolness of my Eye and the Peace of Mind.
