Reciting the Quran

October 3, 2007 | 12:00 a.m. CDT
Listen to Mohamed El-Sayed Deif recite a selection from the Quran. He recited from Surah Al Ankabut — The Spider, section 29, 58-63 and The Glorious Morning Light sections 1-10 before Friday night’s service at the Islamic center in Columbia.
The passages of The Spider refer to those who refer to Allah as their creator but do not follow the path of righteousness. Those who follow the path of righteousness will be rewarded in the afterlife. The Glorious Morning Light focuses on how we should treat with kindness those who are homeless or orphaned because God is the guardian to all of us.
