English First Exam.

Chergui Ben Ahmed High School. Date: Thursday, December 6th, 12.

Classes: 2 LPh 1+2. Allocated Time: 2Hours.

PART ONE: Reading. (15 points)


A. Comprehension (07 points)
Read the text carefully then do the following activities.
Islam created a society more free from cruelty and social injustice than any society that has ever been in
the world before. A good society can be developed in the atmosphere of peace. Islam does not permit
violence. Prayer itself is completed with the announcement of peace, once to the right and once to the left.
Islam teaches the Muslims that peace is achieved through tolerance, forgiveness, responding to evil with
good and making good deeds that bring happiness to others. Islam also gives a special system of human
love, which relates to the dealings of Muslims with the whole world. In this regard, the Quran says: “The
believers are brothers to each other”. Even the Holy Prophet; MUHAMMED; (peace be upon him) was
described as “mercy for the two worlds.” In his conduct, he was tolerant, ever merciful and forgiving. He
signed treaties of peace with the Jews and the Infidels, although they treated him very bad. He said: “O
people! Have mercy on the people on the earth and the Merciful of the skies will have mercy on you.”
It is evident that the West and other countries are concerned about the growth of terrorism which
unfortunately disfigured Islam and its sacredness. That’s why the lives of Muslims should represent true
essence of Islam that they can connect with the rest of the world in a way that promote peace for all.
