In the name of Allah who is the most beneficent and merciful. HE is the one who gave me courage and made me able to accomplish this work. I, (Your name), would like to declare that all contents included in this thesis/dissertation stand for my individual work without any aid, & this thesis/dissertation has not been submitted for any eXamination at academic as well as professional level previously. It is also representing my very own views & not essentially which are associated with university.


Allah is the ultimate source of knowledge who knows about the origin and end of things. He has blessed man with the curiosity to know and the intellect to explore it. He gave his Messenger and Prophet Muhammad (Peace be Upon Him), the eternal beacon to illuminate humanity. He emancipated the human soul from abysses of darkness to the epoch of enlightenment. I therefore offer most humble pearls of my eyes and the words which mean very little, to how before Him and to express what he has blessed this slave with.
