"It is not righteousness that ye turn your faces Towards east or West;
but it is righteousness- to believe in Allah and the Last Day,
and the Angels, and the Book, and the Messengers;
to spend of your substance, out of love for Him,
for your kin, for orphans, for the needy, for the wayfarer,
for those who ask, and for the ransom of slaves;
to be steadfast in prayer, and practice regular charity;
to fulfill the contracts which ye have made;
and to be firm and patient, in pain (or suffering) and adversity,
and throughout all periods of panic.
Such are the people of truth, the Allah-fearing."
[2:177 - Yusuf Ali]
