My Allah! You know what we did was not to seek power nor acquire anything from the world’s vanities. We rather wanted to restore signs of Your religion and to usher prosperity into Your cities so the oppressed among Your creatures might be safe and Your forsaken commands be established. My Allah! I am the first who leaned (towards You) and who heard and responded (to Islam’s call). No one preceded me in prayer except the Prophet.
