Surah Fatihah


Opening of the Heart

Bismi-llah ir-Rahman ir-Rahim
Al-hamdu lillahi rabb-il-'alamin
Ar-Rahman ir-Rahim
Maliki yawm id-Din
Iyyaka na'abudu w iyyaka nasta'in
Ihdin-as-sirat al-mustqim
Sirata-lla dhina an'amta 'alaihim
Ghair-il-maghdubi 'alaihim
wa lad-Dallin
We begin in the Name of Allah,
Everlasting Mercy, Infinite Compassion.
Praise be to Allah, Loving Lord of all the worlds.
Everlasting Mercy, Infinite Compassion.
Eternal Strength of every living being,
Whose Majestic Power embraces us on the day of the great return.
Only You do we adore, and to You alone do we cry for help.
Guide us, O Allah, on the path of Perfect Harmony,
the path of those whom You have blessed with the gifts of Peace, Joy, Serenity and Delight,
the path of those who are not brought down by grief stricken rage,
the path of those who are not lost along the way.
So be it.
