His Eminence Sheikh Ali ibn Abdur-Rahman Al-Hudhaifi, may Allah preserve him, delivered the Friday khutbah entitled, “Zakah: Some Reasons and Rulings”, in which he talked about Zakah (obligatory charity) and some of the reasons for which it has been prescribed. Then he briefly pointed out the most important rulings relating to Zakah and mentioned some of the virtues of the month of Ramadan, stressing that a Muslim must pay attention to this month and increase his good deeds in it.

O Muslims!
Know that the teachings of this true religion are all based on three foundations, namely, doing good to oneself, doing good to others, and refraining from causing harm and evil to them. One can do good to oneself by performing different acts of worship, while doing good to others is realized through good deeds of various kinds. Allah, Exalted be He, says:

"... and do good. Truly, Allah loves Al-Muhsinun (the good-doers)." (Al-Baqarah: 195).

Allah, Exalted be He, also says:
"... but transgress not the limits. Truly, Allah likes not the transgressors." (Al-Baqarah: 190)

Allah also describes the believers as being good to themselves and as being kind to others by refraining from doing harm and causing evil to them. Allah, Exalted be He, says:

"The believers, men and women, are Auliya’ (helpers, supporters, friends, protectors) of one another, they enjoin (on the people) Al-Ma‘ruf (i.e. Islamic Monotheism and all that Islam orders one to do), and forbid (people) from Al-Munkar (i.e. polytheism and disbelief of all kinds, and all that Islam has forbidden); they perform As-Salat (Iqamat-as-Salat) and give the Zakat, and obey Allah and His Messenger (peace and blessings be upon him). Allah will have His Mercy on them. Surely Allah is All-Mighty, All-Wise." (At-Tawbah: 71) read more

This poem was written by Jon Saxton (an author of math textbooks).
((12 + 144 + 20 + (3 * 4^ (1/2))) / 7) + (5 * 11) = 9^2 + 0

Or for those who have trouble reading the poem:

A Dozen, a Gross and a Score,
plus three times the square root of four,
divided by seven, plus five times eleven,
equals nine squared and not a bit more.
