Back to Al-Qawaa’id Al-Arba’ Resource Page
Part 1: Introduction

بِسْــــــمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمَنِ الرَّحِيـــــمِ
Bismillaahir-Rahmaanir-Raheem
In the name of Allaah, the Most Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy

أَسْأَلُ اللهَ الْكَرِيمَ
As-alullaahal-Kareem
I ask Allah, the Most Generous,

رَبَّ الْعَرْشِ الْعَظِيمِ
Rabbal-`Arshil-`Adheem
The Lord of the Mighty Throne,

أَنْ يَتَوَلاكَ فِي الدُّنْيَا وَالآخِرَةِ
Ay-yatawalaaka fid-dunyaa wal-aakhirah
To protect you in this world and the Hereafter

وَأَنْ يَجْعَلَكَ مُبَارَكًا أَيْنَمَا كُنْتَ
Wa-Ay-Yaja`alaka Mubaarakan Aynamaa kunta
And to make you blessed wherever you are

وَأَنْ يَجْعَلَكَ مِمَّنْ إِذَا أُعْطِيَ شَكَرَ
Wa-Ay-Yaja`alaka mim-man ithaa u`tiya shakara
And to make you from those who, when given, are thankful,

وَإِذَا ابْتُلِيَ صَبَرَ
Wa-ithaab-tuliya sabara
When tested are patient,

وَإِذَا أذْنَبَ اسْتَغْفَرَ
Wa-ithaa ath-na-bas-taghfara
And when sinful, seek forgiveness

فَإِنَّ هَؤُلاءِ الثَّلاَثَ عُنْوَانُ السَّعَادَةِ
Fa-inna-haa-ulaa-ith-thalaatha `unwaanus-sa`aadah
For certainly, these three are the keys of happiness

Part 2: We Have Been Created to Worship Allaah Alone

اعْلَمْ أَرْشَدَكَ اللَّهُ لِطَاعَتِهِ
I`lam Ar-sha-da-kallahu li-taa`a-ti-hi,
Know may Allah guide you to His obedience,

أَنَّ الْحَنِيفِيَّةَ مِلَّةَ إِبْرَاهِيمَ
Annal-haneefiyyata, millata Ibraaheem:
that Haneefiyyah, the religion of Ibraaheem is:

أَنْ تَعْبُدَ اللهَ، وَحْدَهُ مُخْلِصًا لَّهُ الدِّينَ
An ta`budallaha wah-da-hu mukh-li-sal la-hud-deen
That you worship Allah alone making the religion sincerely for Him

كَمَا قَالَ تَعَالَى
Kamaa qaala Ta`aalaa:
As He, The Most High, said:

وَمَا خَلَقْتُ الْجِنَّ وَالْإِنْسَ إِلَّا لِيَعْبُدُونِ
{And I (Allâh) created not the jinn and mankind except that they should worship Me (Alone).} Adh Dhaariyaat (51):56

Part 3: Worship is not regarding as such unless it is accompanied by Tawheed

فَإِذَا عَرَفْتَ أَنَّ اللهَ خَلَقَكَ لِعِبَادَتِهِ
Fa-i-dhaa `a-raf-ta an-nallaha kha-la-qa-ka li-`i-baa-da-tih,
So when you acknowledge that Allah created you to worship Him

فَاعْلَمْ أَنَّ الْعِبَادَةَ لا تُسَمَّى عِبَادَةً إِلاَّ مَعَ التَّوْحِيدِ
Fa`lam an-nal`ibaadata laa tusammaa `ibaadatan illa ma`at-tawheed
Then know that worship is not (considered) called worship except with Tawheed

،َمَا أَنَّ الصَّلاةَ لا تُسَمَّى صَلاةً إِلاَّ مَعَ الطَّهَارَةِ
Kamaa an-nas-salaata laa tusammaa salaatan illa ma`at-tahaarah
Just as prayer is not (considered) called prayer except with purification

،َإِذَا دَخَلَ الشِّرْكُ فِي الْعِبَادَةِ فَسَدَتْ
Fa-idhaa da-kha-lash-shirku fil-`ibaadati fasadat
So when shirk enters into worship it corrupts it (lit. It is spoiled)

،َالْحَدَثِ إِذَا دَخَلَ فِي الطَّهَاَرِة
kal-hadathi idhaa da-kha-la fit-taharah
Just like impurity when entered into purity (i.e. It invalidates it)

Part 4: Shirk When Mixed With Worship Corrupts It

فَإِذَا عَرَفْتَ أَنَّ الشِّرْكَ إِذَا خَالَطَ الْعِبَادَةَ أَفْسَدَهَا
Fa-ithaa `A-raf-ta Annash-Shirka Ithaa Khaalatal `Ibaadata Afsadahaa
So when you realize that shirk when it is mixed with worship, it (the shirk) ruins it (i.e. The worship)

وَأَحْبَطَ الْعَمَلَ
Wa Ahbatal `Amal
negates all the actions

وَصَاَرَ صَاحِبُهُ، مِنَ الْخَالِدِينَ فِي النَّارِ
Wa Saara Saahibuhu Minal Khaalideena Fin-Naar
And the one who does it (i.e. the shirk) is forever in the Fire,

عَرَفْتَ أَنَّ أَهَمَّ مَا عَلَيْكَ
`Araf-ta Anna Ahamma Maa `Alayk
Then you will realize that the most important matter (obligatory) upon you:

مَعْرِفَةُ ذَلِكَ لَعَلَّ اللهَ أَنْ يُخَلِّصَكَ مِنْ هَذِهِ الشَّبَكَةِ، وَهِيَ الشِّرْكُ بِاللهِ
Ma`rifatu Dhaalik La-`Allallaaha Ay-Yukhalli saka min Haa-dhi-hish Shabakah, Wa Hiyash-Shirku billaah,
Knowledge and awareness of this fact, so that Allah may save you from this evil trap and it is committing shirk with Allah,

الَّذِي قَالَ الله تَعَالَى فِيهِ
Allathee Qaalal-laahu Ta`aalaa feeh
Which Allah, The Most High, said concerning it:

إِنَّ اللَّهَ لَا يَغْفِرُ أَنْ يُشْرَكَ بِهِ وَيَغْفِرُ مَا دُونَ ذَلِكَ لِمَنْ يَشَاءُ
{Verily, Allâh forgives not (the sin of) setting up partners (in worship) with Him, but He forgives whom He wills} An Nisaa (4):116

وَذَلِكَ بِمَعْرِفَةِ أَرْبَعِ قَوَاعِدَ ذَكَرَهَا اللهُ تَعَالَى فِي كِتَابِهِ
Wa Dhaalika bima`rifati Arba`i Qawaa`ida Dhakarahallaahu Ta`aalaa Fee Kitaabih
And that (will be achieved) by the knowledge and awareness of four principles which Allah the Most High, mentioned in His book.

Part 5: The First Principle

اَلْقَاعِدَةُ الأُولَى
Al-Qaa’idatul-Oolaa
The first principle

أَنْ تَعْلَمَ أَنَّ الْكُفَّارَ الَّذِينَ قَاتَلَهُمْ رَسُوْلُ اللهِ ـ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ
An Ta`lama annal-kuffaaral-latheena Qaatalahum Rasoolullaahi sallallaahu `alayhi wasalam
That you know the Kuffar, who the Messenger of Allaah sallallaahu `alayhi wasalam fought,

،مُقِرُّوْنَ بِأَنَّ اللهَ ـ تَعَالَى ـ هُوُ الْخَالِقُ، الْمُدَبِّرُ
Muqirroona bi annallaaha Ta`aalaa Huwal-Khaaliqul-Mudabbir
Used to affirm that Allah, The Most High, was the Creator and the Disposer of all the affairs

وَأَنَّ ذَلِكَ لَمْ يُدْخِلْهُمْ فِي الإِسْلامِ؛
Wa anna dhaalika lam yudkhilhum fil-Islaam
But that didn’t enter them into Islam

:وَالدَّلِيلُ قَوْلُهُ تَعَالَى
Wad-Daleelu Qawluhu Ta`aalaa
And the proof is His saying the Most High:

قُلْ مَن يَرْزُقُكُم مِّنَ السَّمَاءِ وَالأَرْضِ أَمَّن يَمْلِكُ السَّمْعَ والأَبْصَارَ وَمَن يُخْرِجُ الْحَيَّ مِنَ الْمَيِّتِ وَيُخْرِجُ الْمَيَّتَ مِنَ الْحَيِّ وَمَن يُدَبِّرُ الأَمْرَ فَسَيَقُولُونَ اللَّهُ فَقُلْ أَفَلاَ تَتَّقُونَ
{Say (O Muhammad [sal-Allâhu ‘alayhi wa sallam]): “Who provides for you from the sky and the earth? Or who owns hearing and sight? And who brings out the living from the dead and brings out the dead from the living? And who disposes the affairs?” They will say: “Allâh.” Say: “Will you not then be afraid of Allâh’s punishment (for setting up rivals in worship with Allâh)?”} Yunus (10):31

Part 6: The Second Principle

الْقَاعِدَةُ الثَّانِيَةُ

Al-Qaa`idatu-thaaniyah
The second principle

6.1 SOME REASONS OF THE MUSHRIKEEN FOR COMMITTING SHIRK

:أَنَّهُمْ يَقُولُونَ
Annahum yaqooloon
That they (the Mushrikeen) say:

مَا دَعَوْنَاهُمْ وَتَوَجَّهْنَا إِلَيْهِمْ
Maa da`awnaahum wa tawaj-jahnaa ilayhim
“We do not call upon and turn towards them

،إِلاَّ لِطَلَبِ الْقُرْبَةِ وَالشَّفَاعَةِ
Illaa litalabil-qurbati wash-shafaa`ah
except to seek nearness and intercession (i.e.-with Allah)”.

:فَدَلِيلُ الْقُرْبَةِ؛ قَوْلُهُ تَعَالَى

Fadaleelul-qurbati; qawluhu Ta`aalaa:
So the proof against seeking this nearness (through others, like Awliyyah) is the saying of the Most High:

وَالَّذِينَ اتَّخَذُوا مِن دُونِهِ أَوْلِيَاء مَا نَعْبُدُهُمْ إِلَّا لِيُقَرِّبُونَا إِلَى اللَّهِ زُلْفَى إِنَّ اللَّهَ يَحْكُمُ بَيْنَهُمْ فِي مَا هُمْ فِيهِ يَخْتَلِفُونَ إِنَّ اللَّهَ لَا يَهْدِي مَنْ هُوَ كَاذِبٌ كَفَّارٌ
{And those who take Auliyâ’ (protectors, helpers, lords, gods) besides Him (say): “We worship them only that they may bring us near to Allâh.” Verily, Allâh will judge between them concerning that wherein they differ. Truly, Allâh guides not him who is a liar, and a disbeliever. } Az-Zumar (39):3

:وَدَلِيلُ الشَّفَاعَةِ، قَوْلُهُ تَعَالَى
Wadaleelush-shafaa`ati, qawluhu ta`aalaa:
And the proof (against) of intercession (through Awliyyah) is the saying of the Most High:

وَيَعْبُدُونَ مِن دُونِ اللَّهِ مَا لاَ يَضُرُّهُمْ وَلاَ يَنفَعُهُمْ وَيَقُولُونَ هَـؤُلاء شُفَعَاؤُنَا عِندَ اللَّهِ
{And they worship besides Allâh things that harm them not, nor profit them, and they say: “These are our intercessors with Allâh.”} Yunus (10):18

6.2 THE FORBIDDEN SHAFAA’AH

:وَالشَّفَاعَةُ شَفَاعَتَانِ
Wash-shafaa`atu shafaa`ataan
And intercession is of two types:

.شَفَاعَةٌ مَنْفِيَّةٌ، وَشَفَاعَةٌ مُثْبَتَةٌ
Shafaa`atun manfeeyyah, wa shafaa`atun muthbatah

The prohibited intercession and the affirmed intercession:

:فَالشَّفَاعَةُ الْمَنْفِيَّةُ

Fash-shafaa`atul manfeeyyah
The prohibited intercession

مَا كَانَتْ تُطْلَبُ مِنْ غَيْرِ اللهِ

Maa kaanat tutlabu min ghayrillaah
Is that which is sought from other than Allah

فِيمَا لا يَقْدِرُ عَلَيْهِ إِلا اللهُ؛

Feemaa laa yaqdiru `alayhi illallaah
Concerning that which none is able to do, except Allaah.

:وَالدَّلِيلُ قَوْلُهُ تَعَالَى

Wad-daleelu qawluhu Ta`aalaa
And the proof is the saying of the Most High:

يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُواْ أَنفِقُواْ مِمَّا رَزَقْنَاكُم مِّن قَبْلِ أَن يَأْتِيَ يَوْمٌ لاَّ بَيْعٌ فِيهِ

وَلاَ خُلَّةٌ وَلاَ شَفَاعَةٌ وَالْكَافِرُونَ هُمُ الظَّالِمُونَ
{O you who believe! Spend of that which We have provided for you, before a Day comes when there will be no bargaining, nor friendship, nor intercession. And it is the disbelievers who are the Zâlimûn (wrong doers).} Al Baqarah (2): 254

6.3 THE AFFIRMED SHAFAA’AH

،وَالشَّفَاعَةُ الْمُثْبَتَةُ: هِيَ الَّتِي تُطْلَبُ مِنَ اللهِ
Wash-shafaa`atul muthbatah: hiyal-latee tutlabu minAllaah,
And the affirmed intercession: it is that which is sought from Allah,

،وَالشَّافِعُ مُكَرَّمٌ بِالشَّفَاعَةِ
Wash-shaafi`u mukarramun bish-shafaa`ah
and the intercessor is honored with the intercession

وَالْمَشْفُوعُ لَهُ مَنْ رَضِيَ اللهُ قَوْلَهُ وَعَمَلَهُ بَعْدَ الإِذْنِ؛

Wal-mashfoo`u lahu man radhiyallaahu qawlahu wa `amalahu ba`dal ‘idhn
and the one interceded for, is one whom Allah is pleased with his speech and actions, after He gives permission,

:كَمَا قَالَ تَعَالَى
Kamaa qaala Ta`aalaa:
as He, The Most High, said:

مَن ذَا الَّذِي يَشْفَعُ عِنْدَهُ إِلاَّ بِإِذْنِهِ
{Who is he that can intercede with Him except with His Permission?}Al Baqarah(2): 255

Part 7: The Third Principle

الْقَاعِدَةُ الثَّالِثَةُ
Al-qaa`idatuth-thaalithah
The third principle

أَنَّ النَّبِيَّ ـ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ ـ
Annan-nabiyya sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam
That the Prophet sallallaahu ‘alayhi wasallam

،َهَرَ عَلَى أُنَاسٍ مُتَفَرِّقِينَ فِي عِبَادَاتِهِمْ
Thahara `alaa ‘unaasin mutafarriqeena fee `ibaadaatihim

Among them were people who worshipped the angels,

،َمِنْهُمْ مَنْ يَعْبُدُ الأَنْبِيَاءَ وَالصَّالِحِينَ
Wa minhum may-ya`budul anbiyaa’a was-saaliheen
and amongst them is he who worshipped the prophets and the righteous men

،َمِنْهُمْ مَنْ يَعْبُدُ الأَشْجَارَ وَالأَحْجَارَ، وَمِنْهُمْ مَنْ يَعْبُدُ الشَّمْسَ وَالْقَمَرَ
Wa minhum may-ya`budul ashjaara wal-ahjaar, wa minhum may-ya`budush-shamsa wal-qamar
And amongst them is he who worshipped the trees, the stones, and others who worshipped the sun and the moon

وَقَاتَلَهُمْ رَسُولُ اللهِ ـ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ ـ
Wa qaatalahum Rasoolullaahi sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam
The messenger of Allah sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam fought them

وَلَمْ يُفَرِّقْ بَيْنَهُمْ؛
Wa lam yufarriq baynahum
And did not differentiate between them

:وَالدَّلِيلُ قَوْلُهُ تَعَالَى
Wad-daleelu qawluhu ta`aalaa
And the proof is the saying of the Most High:

وَقَاتِلُوهُمْ حَتَّى لاَ تَكُونَ فِتْنَةٌ وَيَكُونَ الدِّينُ كُلُّهُ لِلّه
{And fight them until there is no more Fitnah (disbelief and polytheism, i.e. worshipping others besides Allâh), and the religion (worship) will all be for Allâh Alone [in the whole of the world].} Al Anfaal (8):39

7.1 PROOF OF THE SUN AND MOON BEING WORSHIPPED

وَدَلِيلُ الشَّمْسِ وَالْقَمَرِ؛

Wa daleelush-shamsi wal-qamar

لِلَّهِ الَّذِي خَلَقَهُنَّ إِن كُنتُمْ إِيَّاهُ تَعْبُدُونَ
 {And from among His Signs are the night and the day, and the sun and the moon. Prostrate yourselves not to the sun nor to the moon, but prostrate yourselves to Allâh Who created them, if you (really) worship Him.} Fussilat (41):37

7.2 PROOF OF THE ANGELS BEING WORSHIPPED

:وَدَلِيلُ الْمَلائِكَةِ؛ قَوْلُهُ تَعَالَى
Wa daleelul-malaa’ikati; qawluhu ta`aalaa:

7.3 PROOF OF THE PROPHETS BEING WORSHIPPED

:وَدَلِيلُ الأَنْبِيَاءِ؛ قَوْلُهُ تَعَالَى
Wa daleelul anbiyaa’i, qawluhu Ta`aalaa:
And the proof of the prophets (being worshipped) is the saying of the Most High:

وَإِذْ قَالَ اللَّهُ يَا عِيسَى ابْنَ مَرْيَمَ أَأَنتَ قُلتَ لِلنَّاسِ اتَّخِذُونِي وَأُمِّيَ إِلَـهَيْنِ مِن دُونِ

اللَّهِ قَالَ سُبْحَانَكَ مَا يَكُونُ لِي أَنْ أَقُولَ مَا لَيْسَ لِي بِحَقٍّ إِن كُنتُ قُلْتُهُ فَقَدْ عَلِمْتَهُ 
تَعْلَمُ مَا فِي نَفْسِي وَلاَ أَعْلَمُ مَا فِي نَفْسِكَ إِنَّكَ أَنتَ عَلاَّمُ الْغُيُوبِ
{And (remember) when Allâh will say (on the Day of Resurrection): “O Eesa (Jesus), son of Maryam (Mary)! Did you say to men: ‘Worship me and my mother as two gods besides Allâh?’ ” He will say: “Glorified are You! It was not for me to say what I had no right (to say). Had I said such a thing, You would surely have known it. You know what is in my inner self though I do not know what is in Yours; truly, You, only You, are the All-Knower of all that is hidden (and unseen)} Al Ma’idah (5):116

7.4 PROOF OF THE RIGHTEOUS MEN BEING WORSHIPPED

:وَدَلِيلُ الصَّالِحِينَ؛ قَوْلُهُ تَعَالَى
Wa daleelus-saaliheena; qawluhu ta’aalaa:
And the proof of the righteous (being worshipped) is the saying of the Most High:

أُولَـئِكَ الَّذِينَ يَدْعُونَ يَبْتَغُونَ إِلَى رَبِّهِمُ الْوَسِيلَةَ أَيُّهُمْ أَقْرَبُ وَيَرْجُونَ رَحْمَتَهُ وَيَ

خَافُونَ عَذَابَهُ
{Those whom they call upon [like ‘Eesa (Jesus) – son of Maryam (Mary), ‘Uzair (Ezra), angels and others] desire (for themselves) means of access to their Lord (Allâh), as to which of them should be the nearest; and they [‘Eesa (Jesus), ‘Uzair (Ezra), angels and others] hope for His Mercy and fear His torment} Al ‘Israa (17):57

7.5 PROOF OF THE TREES AND STONES BEING WORSHIPPED

:وَدَلِيلُ الأَشْجَارِ وَالأَحْجَارِ؛ قَوْلُهُ تَعَالَى

Wa daleelul-ashjaari wal-ahjaar, qawluhu Ta`aalaa

أَفَرَأَيْتُمُ اللَّاتَ وَالْعُزَّى {19} وَمَنَاةَ الثَّالِثَةَ الْأُخْرَى
{Have you then considered Al-Lât, and Al-‘Uzzâ (two idols of the pagan Arabs). And Manât (another idol of the pagan Arabs), the other third?} An Najm (53):19-20

وَحَدِيثُ أَبِي وَاقِدٍ اللَّيْثِيِّ ـ رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهُ ـ

Wa hadeethu Abee Waaqidinil Laythee – Radhiyallaahu `anhu
And the Hadith of Abu Waaqid Al Laythee- radhiyallaahu ‘anhu

قَالَ: خَرَجْنَا مَعَ النَّبِيِّ ـ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ ـ

Qaala: kharajnaa ma`an-nabiyyi sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam
Who said: “We departed with the Prophet sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam

،ِلَى حُنَيْنٍ وَنَحْنُ حُدَثَاءُ عَهْدٍ بِكُفْرٍ

Ilaa hunaynin wa nahnu hudathaa’u `ahdin bikufrin
To Hunayn and we had recently left kufr (disbelief).

،َلِلِمُشْرِكِينَ سِدْرَةٌ

Wa lilmushrikeena sidrah
The Mushrikeen (polytheists) used to have a tree

،َعْكُفُونَ عِنْدَهَا وَيَنُوطُونَ بِهَا أَسْلِحَتَهُمْ

Ya`kufoona `indahaa wa yanootoona bihaa aslihatahum
They used to devote themselves to and hang their weapons upon,

،ُقَالُ لَهَا ذَاتُ أَنْوَاطٍ

Yuqaalu lahaa dhaatu anwaat
They called it Dhaat Anwaat

:فَمَرَرْنَا بِسِدْرَةٍ فَقُلْنَا

Fa mararnaa bisidratin faqulnaa
So we passed by a tree and we said:

.يَا رَسُولَ اللهِ اجْعَلْ لَنَا ذَاتَ أَنْوَاطٍ كَمَا لَهُمْ ذَاتُ أَنْوَاطٍ. الحَدِيثَ

Yaa RasoolAllaahij-`al lanaa dhaata anwaatin kamaa lahum dhaatu anwaat. Al-hadeeth
O Messenger Of Allaah! Appoint for us a Dhaat Anwaat like they have a Dhaat Anwaat. Al-hadeeth
Part 8: The Fourth Principle

الْقَاعِدَةُ الرَّابِعَةُ

Al-qaa`idatur-raabi`ah
The fourth principle

،أَنَّ مُشْرِكِي زَمَانِنَا أَغْلَظُ شِرْكًا مِنَ الأَوَّلِينَ

Anna mushrikee zamaaninaa aghlathu shirkan minal awwaleena
That the Mushrikeen of our time are worse in their shirk than the Mushrikeen who came before.

،لأَنَّ الأَوَّلِينَ يُشْرِكُونَ فِي الرَّخَاءِ

Li’annal-awwaleena yushrikoona fir-rakhaa’
This is because those who came before committed their shirk during times of ease

،وَيُخْلِصُونَ فِي الشِّدَّةِ

Wa yukhlisoona fish-shiddah
And (made their worship) purely for Allah during times of hardship.

وَمُشْرِكُو زَمَانِنَا شِرْكُهُمْ دَائِمٌ

Wa mushrikoo zamaaninaa shirkuhum daa’imun
(However) the shirk of the Mushrikeen of our time is continuous,

فِي الرَّخَاءِ وَالشِّدَّةِ؛
Fir-rakhaa’i wash-shiddah
During (times of) ease and hardship

:وَالدَّلِيلُ قَوْلُهُ تَعَالَى

Wad-daleelu qawluhu Ta`aalaa:
The proof is the saying of the Most High:

فَإِذَا رَكِبُوا فِي الْفُلْكِ دَعَوُا اللَّهَ مُخْلِصِينَ لَهُ الدِّينَ فَلَمَّا نَجَّاهُمْ إِلَى الْبَرِّ إِذَا هُمْ

يُشْرِكُونَ
 
{ And when they embark on a ship, they invoke Allâh, making their Faith pure for Him only, but when He brings them safely to land, behold, they give a share of their worship to others.} Al Ankaboot (29):65

تَمَّتْ وَصَلَّى اللهُ عَلَى مُحَمَّدٍ وعلى َآلِهِ وَصَحْبِهِ وَسَلَّمَ

Tammat wa sallallaahu `alaa muhammadin wa `alaa aalihi wa sahbihi wa sallam
Completed, and may the prayers of Allah be upon Muhammad, his family and his companions
