All praise is due to Allah, giver of blessings, generosity and kindness. He says in the Holy Quran: “And with Him are the keys of the unseen; none knows them except Him. And He knows what is on the land and in the sea. Not a leaf falls but that He knows it. And no grain is there within the darkness of the earth and no moist or dry (thing) but that is (written) in a clear record” Verse (6:59). And peace and blessings of God are on the Prophet, the messenger of knowledge and guidance to the worlds.
