And from wheresoever you start forth, turn your face towards Al-Masjid-Al-Harâm; and wherever you are, turn your faces towards it, so that men may have no argument against you except those of them that are tyrants, so do not fear them and fear Me (fear that My Love upon you will be decreased), that I may complete My Blessings on you and that (so) you may attain Guidance.
Thus We have sent among you a Messenger (a Prophet) from among you so that he may read (and explain) to you Our Verses and purify you (your souls’ hearts) and teaches you the Book and Wisdom and teaches you that which you did not know (beyond Wisdom).
