Consider a woman of faith coming to me, the Prophet. She pledges herself to serve no other god but God; she promises not to commit theft, adultery or murder; she undertakes not to tell monstrous lies of her own invention; she says that she will obey me when my commands are just and reasonable. I shall accept her, and beg God to forgive her. God is forgiving and merciful.
