"In the Name of All‚h,
the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful.
Messenger of All‚h to Al-Harith bin Abi Shamir.
Peace be upon him who
follows true guidance, believes in it and regards it as true. I
invite you to believe in All‚h Alone with no associate,
thenceafter your kingdom will remain yours."

Muhadarat Tareekh Al-Umam Al-Islamiyah
