The following is a translation of the meaning of God's words in the Holy
Qur'an, Chapter 49, Verse 13:
In the Name of Allah (God), Most Gracious, Most Merciful
"O mankind! We created You from a single pair Of a male and a
female, And made you into Nations and tribes, that Ye may know each
other (Not that ye may despise Each other). Verily The most honored of
you In the sight of God Is (he who is) the most Righteous of you. And
God has full knowledge And is well acquainted (With all things)."
In the light of this Quranic guidance, we are committed to know the
others as well as be known to others.
