“[All] praise is [due] to Allah , who created the heavens and the earth and made the darkness and the light. Then those who disbelieve equate [others] with their Lord.  It is He who created you from clay and then decreed a term and a specified time [known] to Him; then [still] you are in dispute.And He is Allah , [the only deity] in the heavens and the earth. He knows your secret and what you make public, and He knows that which you earn.”(6:3)
