Surah Fatiha (2) Surah fatiha in english |

Rate this post

surah fatiha is that magnificent Surah of the Noble Quran, which Allah, the Lord of Majesty, revealed as a special gift for the Ummah of Muhammad (peace be upon him). surah fatiha holds the position of an introduction to the Quran and can also be regarded as the “Opening” or “Commencement” of the Book. It is the first Surah of the Quran, hence it is called Al-Fatiha, meaning “The Opening.”

None of its verses are abrogated (naskh), and every verse in this Surah is firm and unchanging. It encompasses Quranic knowledge within its verses.

To raise objections against surah fatiha is impossible for any troublemaker. The Surah’s delightful commandments are rich in subtleties and insights, as its style is supplicatory. It reflects the interpretation of human nature and offers access to its reality. It is a great Surah that commands humanity to remember and understand from the very beginning until the Day of Resurrection.

This Surah encapsulates the themes of beliefs, worship, narratives, and parables found throughout the Quran. It is as if this Surah is equivalent to capturing an ocean in a small jar, for its content represents the essence of the Quran. Furthermore, it contains its own philosophy and wisdom, making it an integral part of the Quranic message.

بِسۡمِ اللهِ الرَّحۡمٰنِ الرَّحِيۡمِ

اَلۡحَمۡدُ لِلّٰهِ رَبِّ الۡعٰلَمِيۡنَۙ‏ ﴿۱﴾ الرَّحۡمٰنِ الرَّحِيۡمِۙ‏ ﴿۲﴾ مٰلِكِ يَوۡمِ الدِّيۡنِؕ‏ ﴿۳﴾ اِيَّاكَ نَعۡبُدُ وَاِيَّاكَ نَسۡتَعِيۡنُؕ‏ ﴿۴﴾ اِهۡدِنَا الصِّرَاطَ الۡمُسۡتَقِيۡمَۙ‏ ﴿۵﴾ صِرَاطَ الَّذِيۡنَ اَنۡعَمۡتَ عَلَيۡهِمۡ ۙ ﴿۶﴾ غَيۡرِ الۡمَغۡضُوۡبِ عَلَيۡهِمۡ وَلَا الضَّآلِّيۡنَ‏ ﴿۷﴾

Surah fatiha

Surah Al-Fatiha is a pillar of prayer; therefore, a prayer cannot be valid without Surah Al-Fatiha. It is narrated from Sayyidina ‘Abadah ibn Samit (may Allah be pleased with him) that the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings be upon him) said, “There is no prayer for the one who does not recite Surah Al-Fatiha.” This Hadith is recorded by Imam Bukhari۔(Hadith #756) and Muslim (Hadith #394).

Surah fatiha, the Core of Worship…


In terms of its revelation, it is the fifth Surah…


But in the Noble Quran, it holds the first position…


Without reciting it, one cannot perform five daily prayers…


Because supplication is indeed worship, and worship is impossible without supplication; therefore, Al-Fatiha is the core of worship…


It is the opener… the one who recites Al-Fatiha…


Prayer is like a battle, fought repeatedly…


Where rows are formed…


Rows align both in prayer and in warfare…


Just as slaves stand with bound hands before their Master, in the same manner, we stand with our hands bound in prayer before Allah…


Prayer is a spiritual ascension…


We cannot call it “exalted” until we humble ourselves in the posture of prostration.


Prostration is a symbol…


It’s a shelter for the forehead…


It is the declaration of Allah’s greatness…


It is the magnificent and mighty…


It is the Most Great… The Most Supreme… The Majestic… ♥️


The ruling is that if someone accidentally recites another Surah after Surah Al-Fatiha in the third or fourth Rak’ah of a obligatory (Fard) prayer, then there is no obligation to perform Sujood as-Sahw (prostration of forgetfulness). This applies whether they recited it intentionally or by mistake. For an individual offering a solitary (individual) prayer, it is actually recommended to recite another Surah after Surah Al-Fatiha in those Rak’ahs. However, for an Imam (leading the congregation), it is disliked (Makrooh), and if it is done persistently, it may even be considered Haram (forbidden).

And Allah knows best, and His Messenger (peace be upon him) knows best.


Question: Should one recite “Bismillah” after Surah Al-Fatiha and before starting another Surah in Salah (prayer)?


Answer: Reciting “Bismillah” after Surah Al-Fatiha and before starting another Surah is a recommended practice (Sunnah). However, if you begin reciting a Surah from its beginning without reciting “Bismillah” separately, it is also recommended (Mustahabb). According to Bahar-e-Shariat, seeking refuge (Taa’wwuz) is recited only in the first Rak’ah, and “Bismillah” is recited in the beginning of every Rak’ah, whether the recitation is done silently or audibly. It is recommended, however, to recite “Bismillah” quietly.

(Bahar-e-Shariat, Volume 1, Part 3, Page 526)

(Obligatory Acts in Prayer)


In prayer, the following fourteen actions are obligatory:


1. Reciting Al-Qur’an in the first two Rak’ahs of the obligatory prayers (whether praying individually or as part of a congregation).

2. Reciting Surah Al-Fatiha in every Rak’ah of all prayers except for the third and fourth Rak’ahs of the obligatory prayers.

3. Reciting some Surah or a longer verse or three shorter verses after Surah Al-Fatiha in the first two Rak’ahs of the obligatory prayers and in all Rak’ahs of Sunnah, Nafl, and Witr prayers.

4. Reciting Surah Al-Fatiha before any other Surah.

5. Maintaining the order of standing, bowing (Ruku), prostration (Sujood), and Rak’ahs.

6. Performing Qawmah, meaning standing upright after bowing.

7. Sitting between the two prostrations (Jalsah).

8. Performing the movements (Ruku, Sujood, etc.) with proper composure.

9. Sitting in Tashahhud in the first two Rak’ahs of a four-Rak’ah prayer.

10. Reciting Tashahhud in both sitting positions.

11. The Imam reciting Al-Qur’an aloud in Fajr, Maghrib, Isha, the Eid prayers, Taraweeh, and during Ramadan’s Witr prayer, while reciting softly in Dhuhr and Asr prayers.

12. Concluding the prayer with the Taslim (saying, “As-Salamu ‘Alaikum”).

13. Saying the Takbeer for Qunoot in Witr prayer and reciting the Qunoot supplication.

14. Saying extra Takbirs in the Eid prayers.


If one forgets any of the obligatory acts in prayer, Sujood As-Sahw (the prostration of forgetfulness) should be performed to rectify the prayer. Neglecting Sujood As-Sahw intentionally or intentionally leaving out any obligatory act in prayer invalidates the prayer.

And Allah knows best, and He is the Most Knowledgeable.
