In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.
177. 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 fulfil the contracts which ye have made; And to be firm and patient, In pain (or suffering) And adversity, And throughout All periods of panic. Such are the people Of truth, the Allah-fearing.
Sura 2. Al-Baqarah (The Cow)
