Translation
In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
every soul will taste of death and you will be paid
on the Day of Resurrection only that which you
have fairly earned. Who
is removed from the fire is made to paradise, he indeed
is triumphant. The life of this world is but the comfort of illusion
God forgive Mariyam daughter of
al-Hussain bin al Fadal
and keep her with Mohammad (peace be upon him)
