All praise is due to Allah, the One who forgives our sins and accepts our repentance, the One who punishes and the One who rewards. There is none worthy of worship except Allah without any partners. We praise Him and we thank Him. To Him do we turn to in repentance and we seek His forgiveness. I bear witness that there is none worthy of worship except Allah without any partners. And I bear witness that Muhammad is His servant and messenger, who conveyed the message, delivered his trust, and strove on the path of Allah until he attained certainty. May the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, on his family, his companions, and those who followed them and their footsteps until the Last Day.

Allah says: “Verily, he who fears Allâh with obedience to Him, and is patient, then surely, Allâh makes not the reward of the Muhsinûn to be lost.” [Surah Yusuf: Ayah 90]

Oh Allah, send your peace, blessings, and favors upon him, his companions, and his pure household, those who showed mercy each other, his companions, and those who followed them hoping for the mercy of their Lord.

Oh servants of Allah, the best advice that one should start his speech with is the fear of Allah. Therefore, fear Allah, may Allah bless you. Whoever fears Allah will attain success and achieve what he hopes for. The fear of Allah will be a light for him in times of darkness, and a means of lifting difficulties when they befall him. Allah says:
