Entry: Kamala Khan (soon to take on the identity of Ms. Marvel) is inspired by Qur'an 5:32 (Surah Al-Ma'idah) to save her first life. Kamala Khan’s internal narration: “There’s this ayah from the Quran that my Dad always quotes when he sees something bad on TV. A fire or a flood or a bombing./ ‘Whoever kills one person, it is as if he has killed all of mankind--/ and whoever saves one person, it is as if he has saved all of mankind.’/ When I was a little kid, that always made me feel better./ Because no matter how bad things get.../ There are always people who rush in to help./ And according to my Dad.../ they are blessed.” (n.p.)
