The Arabic text on the painting are verses from the Holy Quran as described below:

Sūrat al-Ikhlāṣ (Arabic: سورة الإخلاص‎, "Fidelity" or "Sincerity"), also known as Sūrat al-Tawḥīd (Arabic: سورة التوحيد‎, "Monotheism") is the 112th Sura of the Qur'an. In the early years of Islam, the sūrahs of the Quran came to be known by several different names, sometimes varying by region. This sūrah was among those to receive many different titles. It is a short declaration of tawhid, God's absolute oneness, consisting of 4 ayat. Al-Ikhlas means "the purity" or "the refining" or "the sincerity".

It is disputed whether this is a Meccan or Madinan sura. The former seems more probable, particularly since it seems to have been alluded to by Bilal of Abyssinia, who, when he was being tortured by his cruel master, is said to have repeated "Ahad, Ahad!" (unique, referring as here to Allah). It is reported from Ubayy ibn Ka'b that it was revealed after the polytheists asked "O Muhammad! Tell us the lineage of your Lord."

Abdullah Yusuf Ali Translation of the Surah from Arabic into English is as below:

Say: He is Allah, the One and Only; Allah, the Eternal, Absolute; He begetteth not, nor is He begotten; And there is none like unto Him.
