Read in the name of your Lord
For Wit and Wisdom is man’s reward.
Touch the horizon of complex science
Battle the chains of mind’s defiance.
Fly the distance, travel the lands
Sail farther than the ocean expands.
Search for treasures of infinite knowledge
Experience a thinker’s place of solace
Read under the ascending sky,
Witness angels descend with a reply.
Read in the name of your Lord,
For Wit and Wisdom is man’s reward
 The first verse ever revealed of the Quran to prophet Muhammad (SAW)
 Reference to the story of Usayd bin Hudayr and his horse (reciting the word of God)
