˹That light shines˺ through houses ˹of worship˺ which Allah has ordered to be raised, and where His Name is mentioned. He is glorified there morning and evening by men who are not distracted—either by buying or selling—from Allah’s remembrance, or performing prayer, or paying alms-tax. They fear a Day when hearts and eyes will tremble, ˹hoping˺ that Allah may reward them according to the best of their deeds, and increase them out of His grace. And Allah provides for whoever He wills without limit.Quran 24:36~38

فِی بُیُوتٍ أَذِنَ ٱللَّهُ أَن تُرۡفَعَ وَیُذۡكَرَ فِیهَا ٱسۡمُهُۥ یُسَبِّحُ لَهُۥ فِیهَا بِٱلۡغُدُوِّ وَٱلۡءَاصَالِ
رِجَالࣱ لَّا تُلۡهِیهِمۡ تِجَـٰرَةࣱ وَلَا بَیۡعٌ عَن ذِكۡرِ ٱللَّهِ 
وَإِقَامِ ٱلصَّلَوٰةِ وَإِیتَاۤءِ ٱلزَّكَوٰةِ 
یَخَافُونَ یَوۡمࣰا 
تَتَقَلَّبُ فِیهِ ٱلۡقُلُوبُ وَٱلۡأَبۡصَـٰرُ
لِیَجۡزِیَهُمُ ٱللَّهُ أَحۡسَنَ مَا عَمِلُوا۟ وَیَزِیدَهُم مِّن فَضۡلِهِۦۗ 
وَٱللَّهُ یَرۡزُقُ مَن یَشَاۤءُ بِغَیۡرِ حِسَابࣲ

(اُس کے نور کی طرف ہدایت پانے والے) اُن گھروں میں پائے جاتے ہیں جنہیں بلند کرنے کا، اور جن میں اپنے نام کی یاد کا اللہ نے اذن دیا ہے 
اُن میں ایسے لوگ صبح و شام اُس کی تسبیح کرتے ہیں 
جنہیں تجارت اور خرید و فروخت 
اللہ کی یاد سے 
اور اقامت نماز و ادائے زکوٰۃ سے 
غافل نہیں کر دیتی 
وہ اُس دن سے ڈرتے رہتے ہیں 
جس میں دل الٹنے اور دیدے پتھرا جانے کی نوبت آ جائے گی 
(اور وہ یہ سب کچھ اس لیے کرتے ہیں) تاکہ اللہ ان کے بہترین اعمال کی جزا 
اُن کو دے 
اور مزید اپنے فضل سے نوازے، 
اللہ جسے چاہتا ہے بے حساب دیتا ہے
