and enlarges his bounty to him for the whole year. (Glorious Hadith)
Since we have a Compassionate Creator, there can be no exile for us!
Since He exists, everything exists for us. Since He exists, the angels exist, too.

And that is only He who runs and administers everything. He is completely free of all deficiency.
This maker, who does not appear to us, sees us and everything, and He hears their words.
All his works are miracles and marvels.
