Islamic coins, anonymus Umayad dirham (under caliph Hisham 724-743 AD)
Obv: In centre: 'There is no God except Allah. He is alone, He has no partner', in three lines. Around: 'In the name of Allah this Dirham was struck in Wasit in the year twelve and one hundred'.
Rev: In centre: 'He has no equal, God is one God / the eternal and indivisible, who has not begotten and / has not been begotten and never is there / His equal', in four lines. Around: 'Muhammad is the messenger of God. He sent him with guidance and the true religion to reveal it to all religions, even if the polytheists abhor it'.
Minted in Wasit 112 AH or 730 AD.

The obverse centre inscription is the Muslim declaration of faith. The reverse inscriptions is quotations from the koran, sura 112 in centre and sura 9 verse 33 around (if I got the information right).
