0 - He recites Surat Ya-Sin, the 36th Surah (Chapter) of the Qur?an, Ayat (Verses) 8-40: "Lo! It is We who bring the dead to life and record that which they send before them and their footprints. And all things We have kept in a clear register. / Coin for them a similitude: The people of the city when those sent from God came unto them; / When We sent unto them twain and they denied them both, so we reinforced them with a third, and they said; Lo! we have been sent unto you. / They said: 'Ye are but mortals like unto us. The Beneficent hath naught revealed and ye do but lie!' / They answered: 'Our Lord knoweth that we are indeed sent unto you, / And our duty is but plain conveyance (of the message).' / The people said: If ye desist not, we shall surely stone you, and grievous torture will befall you at our hands.' / They said: 'Your evil augury be with you! Is it because ye are reminded of the truth! Nay, but ye are froward folk?' / And there came from the uttermost part of the city a man running, crying 'O my people! Follow those who have been sent! / Follow those who ask no fee of you, who are the rightly guided. / For what cause should I not serve Him Who hath created me, and unto Whom you shall return? / Shall I take false gods before Him when, if the Beneficent should wish me ill, their intercession will avail me naught, not can they save? / Then truly I should be in error manifest.'"
