Umm Al-Kitāb

She is her lovers first choice. Her beauty has no bounds. Most articulate is her melodious voice. In wisdom she astounds.

She will hasten your heartbeat. Take away your breath. Cause strong men and warriors to cry and weep uncontrollably. Loving her thoroughly.

She wipes away any sadness. Replacing it with hope and gladness. The Mother of Books. Authored by the Creator of Peace. The mighty and forgiving Lord of all directions.

Maker of every hue and complexion. North, South, West and East. And all that lie between and within. Judge of both Men and Jinn
