Perhaps to avoid problems later Before this paper ends, I want to quote a beautiful sentence in 440 pages of this book that should be kept in mind by the couple who will marry and embroidery: Affection between them was evident in the eyes of all people. Based on experience, Mr. Ali knows that romantic love is only a few years old and they must find another way to eternal life.
