“If you are faithful, follow the path of the prophet to Allah
If you hear their name, worship and praise them.
Try the fate of the destitute and unhappy, learn from them.
Become a support for the unfortunate and crippled, understand them”

There is another meaning of the word “Sopyl”, for example, the word sufamennaya suffa is a place for reading namaz, from the word “pure”, from the Greek “wisdom”, etc.
