Above is Surah Ikhlas from the Quran. It’s the 112 Surah. It has four Ayats (verses). Ikhlas means Purity of Faith.
In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
Say, “He is Allah, the One, and Only
Allah, the Eternal, Absolute
He begetteth not, nor is He begotten
And there is none like unto Him”.
The concept of pure monotheism was foreign to almost all the people living in Arabia: the pagans, Jews, and Christians, at the time Islam came.
The Prophet (Peace be upon him) invited people to worship God alone. To answer people’s questions this Surah was revealed.
