Along the edge of the entrance you can read the complete text of the third Kalima, as on the pishtaq of the Shir-Dor madrassa.: "Glory (is for) Allah. And all praises for Allah. And (there is) none worthy of worship except Allah. And Allah is the Greatest. And (there is) no power and no strength except from Allah, the Most High, the Most Great.". The first part of the kalima is written in dark blue glazed tiles, the second part in turquoise tiles. Following the rules of square kufic the whole text form a long rectangle.
