By Ayten Tiryaki, signed and dated, inscription on paper of verses from The Holy Book. (Qur’an 2:255) Ayat al-Kursi (The Throne Verse).

Translation: In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.Allah! There is no God but He,the Living, the Self-subsisting, the Eternal.No slumber can seize Him, nor sleep.All things in heaven and earth are His.Who could intercede in His presence without His permission?He knows what appears in front of and behind His creatures.Nor can they encompass any knowledge of Him except what he wills.His throne extends over the heavens and the earth,and He feels no fatigue in guarding and preserving them,for He is the Highest and Most Exalted.Allah, the Most High, speaks the truth.
