Surely in the creation of the heavens and the earth and in the difference between the night and the day are signs (of His Soverignty) for people of understanding, those who remember Allah, standing, sitting and reclining and who reflect on the creation of the heavens and the earth (and say), "Our Lord! You did not created this in vain. Glory be to You! so preserve us from the doom of the fire. Our Lord! Whomever You cause to enter the Fire, him indeed You have confounded, and for evildoers there will be no helpers. Our Lord! Surely we have heard a crier calling unto faith: ‘Believe in your Lord!’ So we have believed. Our Lord! Therefore forgive us our sins and rid us of our evil deeds and make us die the death of the righteous. Our Lord! And give us what You have promised to us through Your Messengers. Confound us not upon the Day of Ressurection. Surely You do not break Your promise." Aali Imran (3):190-194.
