God, ever exalted is He, says: “I accept the prayer of one who humbles himself before My Grandeur, who does not seek to dominate My Creation, who does not pass a night persisting in disobedience of Me, who devotes his day to My Remembrance, who is merciful to the poor, the homeless, the widowed and to all who suffer misfortune. The light of such a one is like the light of the sun. I shall preserve him by My Might, and My angels will protect him. I shall provide him with light where there is darkness, and forbearance where there is ignorance. His likeness among My creatures resembles the Highest Garden in Paradise.”
