Translation
In the name of God, the Beneficent
The Merciful. Say, He is Allah, the One!
Allah, the eternally Besought of all!
He begetteth not
Nor was begotten, and there is none comparable unto Him. Peace be upon Mohammad
Al-Mustafa, the last of the Prophets,
(may God) bless Ayadah daughter of Jallad bin
Yazid from the companion of Mohammad
Peace be upon him, in the Heavens
Amen. God of the Worlds. Everyone that is thereon
will pass away; There remaineth but the Countenance of thy Lord of
Might and Glory. Everything will
perish saved His Countenance. His is the command
and unto Him ye will be brought back.
praise be to Allah, Lord of the Worlds.
