"Only the saying, ' Peace!' 'Peace!'

Last night I asked my daughter, "Bring me a comforting book--Agatha Christie or something." That good girl, she handed me the Qur'an. (Yusuf Ali translation). I opened right to this:

"A Reward for the Deeds of their past (Life).

No frivolity will they
Hear therein, nor any
Taint of ill--

Only the saying,
'Peace!' 'Peace!' "

Surat al-Waqi'ah, 56:24-26.
