Indeed all praise is for Allaah, we praise Him and we seek His aid and we seek His forgiveness. And we seek refuge with Allaah from the evil of our souls and from our wicked deeds. Whomsoever Allaah guides, none can misguide, and whomsoever Allaah misguides, none can guide.
We further bear witness that none has the right to be worshipped except Allaah alone, without partner or associate, and we bear witness that Muhammad (sal-Allaahu ‘alayhe wa sallam) is His slave and Messenger.
