Surah Al Fatiha The opening verses of the glorious Qur’anThis surah has been commented by many scholars around theworld and many muslims feel they know surah Al fatiha fromthe bottom of their hearts...Yet, we still live in a world wheremany confusion prevails, not only in our actions but most of all, and certainly, in our niyyat [intention].And we have all learnt from madrassahs, Islamic schools orfrom our parents when we were still young, that niyyat is thecrux of every action. Our actions are based on the intention weformulate...So the very moment we start an action, we start byremembering Allah as the Glorious, the Supreme, the Ownerof the whole universe and certainly the Master of this universewho has provided us with codes of conduct in order that wemay live in tranquillity and peace...The formula is so simple: BISMILLAHAnd you will note that Allah throughout the Quran has chosentwo siffat [two attributes from His Names]: AR RAHMAN AR RAHIIMDo we have time to reflect ? Are we concerned about theessentials of life or do we use islam to challenge people, or toshow pride....?Surah Al Fatiha gives us indications about the essence of Allah,His attributes and acts as a summary, as an introduction to thewhole of the Qur’an.
 
This shows his prime importance in the life of a muslim. Anymuslim who commits it by heart ....with his heart....willcertainly attain success in this life and in the hereafter.So, the problem might be lying somewhere here. Just do asurvey. Go and ask at least ten people around you...see whetherthey can:Read it with good pronunciation of arabicRead it with tajweed[Some people think that reading with tajweed is reading with anice rythm, so they tune their voice and tone according to theirfavourite singer....this is not allowed]. Tajweed is certainlyabove that and a person must learn the recital of the Qur’anwith a knowledgeable person who has iman...Recite it in the language that he understands [for non arabs]Understands the essence of it.It is a pity that muslims men, women, young adolescents....areNOT in tune with it. We can go around the world and makeconferences, having masses of people to applaud, shaking ourhands, telling us how good we were as an orator...we have allseen these scenes. In Mauritius, there are so many conferences,every month, every week, we invite so many people tospeak...and yet, the chaos prevails....Well, we can still say we are 18 % of Muslims only but do weshow interest to invite others towards Islam or the reverse ishappening????So, I am not here to re-explain what the previous scholars havealready tackled. I am just reminding some few points about
 
this surah so that we may insha Allah, act accordingly andimproves our attitudes towards the revelation of Allah.ExplanationAl-Fatiha
"The Opening," is the firstchapter of theMuslimholy  book, theQur'an. Its sevenversesare a prayer for God's guidance and stress the lordship and mercy of God. This chapter has aspecial role in daily prayers, being recited at the start of each unitof prayer, or rak'ah.
1:1] In the name of GOD, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.[1:2] Praise be to GOD, Lord of the universe.[1:3] Most Gracious, Most Merciful.[1:4] Master of the Day of Judgment.[1:5] You alone we worship; You alone we ask for help.[1:6] Guide us in the right path;[1:7] the path of those whom You blessed; not of those whohave deserved wrath, nor of the strayers.
