Mohammed: Prayers

TO LOVE YOU

O God, grant us to love You;

Grant us to do deeds that win Your love.

May the love of You be dearer to us than wealth,

And dearer even than cool water.

Mohammed (c. 570-632) is the founder of Islam, whose followers regard him as the last prophet in line with Adam, Noah, Abraham, and Jesus. The Islamic holy book,Quran, is the collection of revelations that Mohammed received when the prophet was in his forties.
