Surah 6 Al-An'am, Ayat 162-163

قُلۡ اِنَّ صَلَاتِىۡ وَنُسُكِىۡ وَ مَحۡيَاىَ وَمَمَاتِىۡ لِلّٰهِ رَبِّ الۡعٰلَمِيۡنَۙ‏  ﴿6:162﴾ لَا شَرِيۡكَ لَهٗ​ۚ وَبِذٰلِكَ اُمِرۡتُ وَاَنَا اَوَّلُ الۡمُسۡلِمِيۡنَ‏ ﴿6:163﴾

(6:162) Say: 'Surely my Prayer, all my acts of worship, 143 and my living and my dying are for Allah alone, the Lord of the whole universe. (6:163) He has no associate. Thus have I been bidden, and I am the foremost of those who submit themselves (to Allah).`
