A Wedding Ceremony(1)


Pages are bound between covers made of carved wood. Written on one side is a line from the Quran, and on the other side are words of invitation.



This is an invitation card for a wedding ceremony. Pretty, isn’t it?

Below is the meaning of the words of the Quran quoted in this invitation.

255. Allah - there is no deity except Him, the Ever-Living, the Sustainer of [all] existence. Neither drowsiness overtakes Him nor sleep. To Him belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth. Who is it that can intercede with Him except by His permission? He knows what is [presently] before them and what will be after them, and they encompass not a thing of His knowledge except for what He wills. His Kursi extends over the heavens and the earth, and their preservation tires Him not. And He is the Most High, the Most Great.
