We have awoken from our sleep - our minor death in which the soul has risen up to the heavens to rest and be protected by God, and blessed for it to come down. It comes down with the memory of Islam, the retention of its implications and the knowledge and history of our relationship with our creator through our conscious lives.
We have acknowledged that our identity is positioned in the natural inclination that only Islam is able to provide us in order to connect with Allah, and that our identity is shaped by where we stand spiritually and the acknowledgements we have made.
We acknowledge that we have been brought back from the dead in order to ask forgiveness for our previous mistakes, make the most of our time, and bind ourselves to an agreement that we will fulfil the reason we have been brought back - to better ourselves more than the previous day and not regress in actions or intentions.
We acknowledge the religion of the creator and affirm that the message of Islam has been received by us and accepted, and that we will bear witness that this message was passed down to us from Allah via the prophet Muhammad (SAW) and those who fulfilled their obligations by passing the knowledge down right to us.
In doing so we recognise the importance of passing on this message and fulfilling our purpose in life - to serve our creator as a vicegerent on this Earth bi fadlil-lah.
