1 Surely I have turned myself, being upright, to Him who originated the heavens and the earth and I am not of the polytheists. Surely my prayer and my sacrifice and my life and my death are all for Allah, the Lord of the Worlds; no associate has He, and this am I commanded and I am of those who submit.

2 "O Allah! Thou art the King, there is no god but Thee; Thou art my Lord and I am Thy servant. I have been unjust to myself and I confess my faults so grant me protection against all my faults, for none grants protection against faults but Thee, and guide me to the best of morals, for none guides to the best of them but Thee, and turns away from me the evil morals but Thee."

3 The following brief prayer is however, the one more generally adopted.

4 "Glory to thee, O Allah! Thine is the praise and blessed is Thy Name and exalted is Thy Majesty and there is none to be served beside Thee. I betake me for refuge to Allah against the accursed devil."

5 A Muslim must say his prayers. When we say that we are Muslims (those who have submitted to the will of Allah) and then we must give praises to the One to whom we have submitted, to do His will.

6 If we are believers in the Divine Supreme Being, we are always in need of his help, one way or another. Therefore, it is necessary that we give praises to Him and thanks, and ask forgiveness for any wrongdoing on our part.

7 Praising His name in the saying of prayers, pouring out the heart's sentiment before and to our Divine Supreme Being shows submission and proves to the world that our life and our death are all for Allah.

8 This above prayer is divided into two parts; one part called Fard and the other one tradition, or I should say it is tradition that the Muslim should pray and give praises to Allah. It is not something just started in the time of Muhammad, 1,400 years ago, but it has always been the righteous way to do (to pray and give praises to Allah).

9 Prayer is something that we must and are compelled to do if we expect guidance and mercy from Allah. And Allah's using Fard as His name here on His coming teaches us that if we expect to be successful, we must bow in submission to the will of Master Fard Muhammad; the All Wise God in Person who is worthy to be praised and praised much.

10 It is really the nature of the righteous to give praise and honor to Allah. The Prayer is one of the greatest prayers that we can pray. Being lost from Allah and from our people and native land or country, we now turn ourselves to Allah. We live right to Him, who originated the heavens and the earth.

11 But we must remember we are taking an oath in this prayer, that we will not accept any god but Allah, in the words: "My prayers, my sacrifice, my life and death are all for Allah."

12 We live for Allah; we die for Allah; we sacrifice all we have and our lives for Allah and His cause.

13 Let the Muslims and hypocrites who read this teaching taught in the above prayer know that we have taken an oath with our life to live for Allah and sacrifice everything we have for Allah and that we will even die for Allah!

14 This will be held against us on the day we shall meet Allah who turns back on their heels and you who become hypocrites read, study and learn the prayer above and recite it if you are believers as often as you can and know that you have fled to Allah and have taken refuge in Him against the accursed devils.

15 The devils were cursed from the day they were created -- or grafted -- until this day and a doom was fixed for them. You are not blind to the knowledge of the devil; you know who the real devil is today.

16 As the Holy Qur-an gives it to you and me, they are European enemies -- that race which is called the Caucasian race, or the European white race.
