the criteria for judgment in the sight of Almighty God. It's not sex. It's not color. It's not wealth. It's not age, but it is taqwa It is called consciousness. It's piety, it is righteousness.

Quran says in three room, Chapter Mati was number 22. Amongst the signs He has created the heavens and the earth, and the variation in your languages and color.

And Hutch is the biggest annual gathering in the world where about three to 4 million people from different parts of the world. from USA from Canada from UK from India, from Malaysia, from different parts of the world. They gathered together in one place in mcminn arafat and they are dressed in two pieces of unsold cloth, which is right in color. You cannot identify the person standing next to you is king or Papa and all of them come on a common statement. Love bake
