“Believe in the God, Whose existence is confirmed unanimously by the Torah, the Gospels and the Holy Qur’an. Do not fashion a god whose existence is not proven by the unanimous testimony of these three books. Accept that which is testified by intellect and human conscience and is testified by the books of God.
“Do not believe in God in a manner that creates discord between the books of God. Do not commit adultery. Do not tell lies. Avoid the evil look. Safeguard yourselves from wickedness, immorality, cruelty, dishonesty, and ways of rebellion. Do not be overpowered by carnal desires.
“Establish the five daily Prayers because human natures undergo five kinds of trials. Be grateful to your noble Messenger and invoke blessings upon him, for he is the one who showed you the way of recognising God in the age of darkness. These are the principles that are the distinguishing features of my Community.
“The way this Community establishes human sympathy, avoiding to do harm to human beings, and forsaking the opposition of the official in charge, are not found in other Muslims. Because of their own mistakes, their principles are of a different type, which do not need explanation at this time.”
