Invocation from Havdalah Service (Jewish) -1
We come before God to thank Him for the blessings of the (Sabbath)(this day) and to ask Him to prosper our endeavors all through the coming week.    In the God of my salvation I will trust. I will not be afraid; for the Lord is my strength and the song of my salvation. Happy is the man who trusteth in Thee, O Lord of Hosts.   And ye shall draw water of joy from the well of salvation. Lift up the cup of salvation and call upon the name of the Lord. Amen (Adapted from the Jewish   Havdalah Service)

Invocation from Havdalah Service (Jewish) -2
Blessed art Thou, O Lord our God, Ruler of the universe, Who has created the light of the fire.   O Lord, in the days ahead, help us, we pray, to distinguish between joys that pass and joys the endure, between love of self and love of others, between worship of men and worship of Thee. May the holiness of this Sabbath Day remain with us throughout the coming week. Amen (Adapted from the Jewish Havdalah Service)

May the time be not too distant, O LORD, when all your children will understand that they are brothers and sisters, so that, one in spirit and one in fellowship, they may be for ever united before you.

Part 19 - Holy Qur-an
The Holy Qur-an - Part 19, Chapter 25   -   The true servants of the Gracious GOD are the following: Those who walk upon earth with humility and when they are tempted by the evil ones, they respond: Peace; Those who pass the hours of the night in prayers and standing before the Lord; Those who pray: Lord turn away from us the punishments of hell, for it is a heavy torment, it is indeed an evil dwelling place; Those who are neither extravagant nor stingy in spending, but keep a balance between the two; Those who repent and believe and do good deeds.

Part 5 - Holy Qur-an - Story of Cain and Abel
The Holy Qur-an - Part 5 27-30  -  Recite to them the truth of the story of the two sons Of Adam. Behold ! They each presented a sacrifice to God. If was accepted from Abel, but not from Cain, Said the latter (Cain): "Be sure I will kill you" "Surely, said Abel, "God does accept of the sacrifice of those who are righteous.  If you stretch your hand against me, to slay me, It is not for me to stretch my hand against you, to slay you: For I do fear God, the Cherisher of the Worlds.  For me, I intend to let you draw on yourself my sin as well as yours. For you will be among the companions of the Fire, And that is the reward of those who do wrong.  The selfish soul of Cain led him to the murder of his brother: He murdered him, and became one of the lost ones.
