    In the Name of God, the Merciful, the Compassionate

    "And when I am ill,
    it is He Who cures me"
    (The Holy Quran 26:80)

    To my patients
    15,000 of them in 25 years
    whom I thank for trusting me
    for health care and teaching me about their illnesses

    Physician's Prayer
    Praise be to God
    The Creator of the Universe
    Who taught us,
    "Whoever saves a human life has saved the life of all mankind"
    (Quran 5:32).

    Shahid Athar, M. D.
