Oh ye that are Infidels! there is no excuse for you, ye shall be chastised after your demerits. Oh ye that believe! turn to God with affection, he shall pardon your sins, and make you to enter into Gardens, wherein flow many rivers; the light of faith shall goe before the Prophet, and them that have followed him; when God shall recompense them, they shall say, Lord, give us thy light, pardon our sins, thou art omnipotent.
