You know, now, that Islam means submission to God, that Islam is not Muhammadenism, that it is the Religion of the Universe including Man, that it consist of eternal laws on which Man was created, that it is binding on him, and that there is no escape from it.

You know that all the Messengers of God were human beings, that they all brought Islam, that they did not come to tear mankind into factions, that they came to explain differences so as to make mankind one entity and to put it on the One Established Path of God. You know that Man is the Viceroy of God on earth, that the world is for his sake and that he is required to capture it and derive benefit from it. You know that internal fight of Man is against the intentions of nature, that it is taking him away from his real purpose, that unity of man is a pre-requisite to that purpose and that man can unite only in the name of God, his Creator and Master.

You know that man has lost all the Books of God except the Quran, that the Quran is the latest, the perfect and the only true edition of the Book of God, preserved in original words, that it contains all the essentials of social, economic and political life of man and that man must adopt it as a code of life, if he desires success and salvation.

You know that mankind is a single community, that the whole earth is their abode, that restrictions on move of men are wrong, that scientific progress does not allow them to live in small isolated groups any longer, and that all men must live as one community and, in stead of fighting among themselves, should wage war against the universe, outside the earth.

You know that Muslim community was raised to lead mankind to that end, that Muslims of today are Muslims in name and birth only and that you cannot see the truth through them nor look towards them for example and lead.

You know that the responsibility to follow the Right Path is on the whole of mankind and not only on the present Muslims.

You know that the world will come to End one day, that you will rise again, and that every soul shall answer for itself.

Know it then, that you must act right even if the whole world goes wrong. Pledge, therefore, to submit yourself to God and serve Him and Him alone. Proclaim that there is no god except God and that Muhammad is His Messenger. Act on His Book and bring the world on to it. Preach it in your home, in your street, in your family, to your friends and your neighbors. Stand for it, even at the cost of your life and all your possessions, stand firm on it and stand for ever. You may be the leader of the world.

Say, ‘my Prayer, my sacrifice, my living and my dying, all are for God, the Lord of the World, who has no associate; and this I have been commanded, and I am the first of those who have surrendered.’ Say, ‘shall I seek after a lord other than God, while He is the Lord of all things; every soul earns only to its own account, and no bearer bears the load of another; then to your Lord shall you return, and He will tell you of that wherein you differed. And it is He who has raised some of you in ranks above others, that He may try you in what He has given you. Thy Lord is Swift in Retribution, and He is surely Forgiving, Merciful. (6:163-166)

Say, ‘is it other than God that you bid me to serve, O ignorant ones?’ And it has been revealed to thee, and to those before thee, ‘if thou associatest any with God, thy work shall come to naught, and thou shalt be among the losers. No, but God do thou serve and be among the thankful.’ (39:64-66)

Say, ‘ I exhort you only one thing, that you stand up for God, in twos and singly, then ponder --- your companion is no mad; he is only a Warner unto you before a terrible punishment. (34:46)

Say, ‘any wage that I ask of you, let it be yours; my wage is only upon God, and He is a witness to everything.’ (34:47)

Our Lord, We have heard a caller calling to Belief, ‘believe in your Lord,’ so we have believed. Our Lord, forgive us our sins and acquit us of our evils and take us to Thee with the virtuous. Our Lord, give us that Thou hast promised us by Thy Messengers, and disgrace us not on the Day of Resurrection; surely, Thou wilt not fail the appointment.’ Their Lord then answered them, ‘I waste not the work of any worker among you, be it a male or a female; you are from one another. Those who emigrated and were expelled from their homes, and were persecuted in My way, and fought and were killed, I shall surely acquit them of their evils, and I shall admit them to gardens underneath which rivers flow, as a reward from God; and with God is the handsome reward. (3:193-195)

Our Lord, take us not to task if we forget or make a mistake; and our Lord, lay not on us a load such as Thou laidest on those before us; and our Lord, burden us not what we cannot bear; pardon us, forgive us, have mercy on us, Thou art our Protector, so help us against the unbelieving people. (2:286)

O God, the Master of the kingdom, Thou givest the kingdom to whom Thou wilt, and takes away the kingdom from whom Thou wilt; Thou exaltest whom Thou wilt; and Thou abasest whom Thou wilt; in Thy hand is the good; Thou art powerful over everything. (3:26)

Our Lord, make not our hearts to deviate after Thou hast guided us, and bestow on us mercy from Thee; Thou art the All-Bestower. Our Lord, Thou shalt be gathering mankind on a Day wherein is no doubt; surely God does not fail the appointment. (3:8-9)

I take refuge with the Lord of the day-break, from the evil of all that He has created, and from the evil of darkness when it gathers, and from the evil of (women) blowing on knots, and from the evil of jealous, when he is jealous. (113)

I take refuge with the Lord of men. The King of men, the God of men, form the evil of the whispering of the slinker, who whispers in the breasts of men, of jinn and men. (114)
