khaira ummatin ukhrijat-l-innasi ta'muruuna bilma'ruuf wa tanhowna 'ani-l-munfar
watu' minuuna billah -
wa law amana ahlu lkitaabi lakana khairal-lahum minhumu-l-mu'minuuna wa aktharuhumu-l-faasiquun."
|You [the Muslims] are the best of peoples ever raised up for mankind; you enjoin Al-Ma'ruf (Good of Islam) and forbid Al-Munkar (evil Islam forbids), and you believe in Allah. And had the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians) believed, it would have been better for them; among them are some who have faith, but most of them are Al-Fasiqun (disobedient to God's Commandments).|
