Please Note
1.
 
I have had the great privilege, (since Aug 2010), of presenting talks on the weekly Radio Program
‘Culture of Islam’
[
Every Friday 8 to 8.30 pm, Radio Sri Lanka - FM 97.4
]2.
 
Since these are Radio Talks, I refer to, or address the audience as ‘listeners’
 3.
 
I am well aware that the audience to these talks would consist of people belonging to a variety of faiths. So as to make people of all faiths feel included, I very often use words and names that arecommon to all religions.4.
 
For these reasons, I use the name GOD, as well as Abraham, Moses, Jesus etc as well as thenames Allah, Ibrahim (Alaihis Salaam), Moosa (Alaihis Salaam), Easa (Alaihis Salaam) etc5.
 
Muslims by habit usually say ‘Sallallahu Alaihiwasallam’, when the name of Prophet Muhammadis mentioned, and ‘A
laihis Salaam' when the name of a Prophet is mentioned. However, in theseseries of talks I have reduced the use of these prayers & sayings to the bare minimum.6.
 
Muslims, also by habit, use a number of Arabic prayers or sayings, such as Alhamdulillah, InshaAllah and so on. Again, I have reduced the use of these prayers or sayings to the bare minimum.7.
 
Sometimes I have to write Arabic words in the English script.I have devised my own way of writing Arabic in English, as follows;

105 Ambitions, Goals & DistractionsPart 2
Dear Friends,Assalamu Alaikum,Last week I my talk was
on the topic “Ambitions, Goals & Dis
traction
s”
 My idea at that time was to read the last 3 Aayaths from the Surah Faathiha and then, to point outsome other Aayaths of the Quran that elaborates or gives greater meaning to these Aayaths.Why I chose the Aayaths of Surah Faathiha was because, it was the opening Chapter of the Quranand especially because every practicing Muslim or we could say every Muslim who practices theminimum 5 daily prayers or the Salaath, would be reciting this Surah at least 17 times every day
 – 
 even going up to approximately 50 times a day
 – 
so it follows that the contents of this Surah haveto be very important.The Surah Faathiha consists of just 7 Aayaths and I chose to draw attention to the last 3 Aayaths;Let me read these Aayaths to you;(1:5) You alone do we worship, and fromYou alone do we seek help.
﴿
 
(1:6) Guide us on the straight path.
﴿
 
(1:7) the path of those on whom Youhave bestowed Your favors, not of thosewho have incurred Your wrath and not(of) those who go astray.
﴿
 
Let me now briefly describe our approach to these 3 Aayaths.We first describe our relationship with God, with the words;(1:5) You alone do we worship, and fromYou alone do we seek help.
﴿
 
We then describe our biggest need;(1:6) Guide us on the straight path.
﴿
 
We then qualify this need by describing
that 
path of guidance, this time by drawing reference toor by describing those who received guidance, as compared to those who go astray
 – 
which wouldmean
 – 
those who go away or go astray from true guidance.
 Now the topic of the talk was “Ambitions, Goals & Dis
traction
s” – 
so to us Muslims who truly believe that God guides us towards success, I wanted to point out that this Surah Faathiha which
