    Re: Explanation of Surah Fatiha

    The whole arabic text of this Sura is as follows:

    Search For: 1 - Asad - English / Muhammad Asad
    بِسْمِ اللّهِ الرَّحْمـَنِ ال
    رَّحِيمِ
    (
    1:1)
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    الْحَمْدُ للّهِ رَبِّ الْعَالَمِينَ (1:2)
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    الرَّحْمـنِ الرَّحِيمِ (1:3)
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    مَـالِكِ يَوْمِ الدِّينِ (1:4)
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    إِيَّاكَ نَعْبُدُ وإِيَّاكَ نَسْتَعِينُ (1:5)
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    اهدِنَــــا الصِّرَاطَ المُستَقِيمَ (1:6)
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    صِرَاطَ الَّذِينَ أَنعَمتَ عَلَيهِمْ غَيرِ المَغضُوبِ عَلَيهِمْ وَلاَ الضَّالِّينَ (1:7
    )
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    If we look at its configuration ,there are a few interesting points.
    It has 7 ayaats (verses) .Out of these 7 verses
    1. First four are for Almighty Allah
    2. Fifth is common i.e a Link/relation between Creator and Creation
    3. Last two are for the creation /human beings


    FIRST FOUR VERSES :
    If you look at them ,you will notice that all of them are in NOMINAL SENTENCES and none in verbal sentence.
    Verbal sentences are time bound or time limited.For example .
    -صلّى زيد = Zaid said his prayers .(Verbal sentence)
    It denotes just one time act in the past.
    But if we say :
    - زيد مصلّى = Zaid is a (regular) sayer of the Prayers (Nominal sentence)
    It does not denote one /two time action rather it shows that "Praying" is a part of habits of Zaid.He has been saying praying ,says his prayers in the present time and inshallha will go on praying.

    Saying this the first four NOMINAL VERSES in Sura Fatiha denote that all these enumirated attributes of Allah are eternal not time bound.

    In the fifth Verse we utter our Relationship with Allah i.e
    -We pray Only To you
    -We seek help Only From You
    The word "ayyaaka " is worth noting. It does not mean "you" .Rather it means ONLY YOU.Which is our clear declaration /covenant to Almighty Allah about these acts.It uproots all sorts of "Shirk".

    In the last two verses we ask for guidance for the STRAIGHT PATH.Again this word is not "Path " rather STRAIGHT PATH." We also point out the path of the People whome YOU bestowed with favor.

    IS THERE ANY ANSWER TO OUR REQUEST FOR GUIDANCE OF STRAIGHT PATH?

    It is worth noting that in first Sura we ask for GUIDANCE for Almight Allah .The answer is place right in the Second Sura (second verse)
    Search For: 2 - Asad - English / Muhammad Asad
    الم (2:1)
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    ذَلِكَ الْكِتَابُ لاَ رَيْبَ فِيهِ هُدًى لِّلْمُتَّقِينَ (2:2)
    Allah says :The answer to your request is :"this is the book without any doubt and GUIDANCE FOR MUTTAQIN.
    wasslaam

    Salam

    It can be connected to phrase after it so it means:

    "With the Name of Allah all praise belongs to Allah"

    So it can be seen like that... and every Surah it can be seen like that...

    Why does an invisible verb have to be connected to it?

    wa salam

    أَفَمَن يَخْلُقُ كَمَن لاَّ يَخْلُقُ أَفَلا تَذَكَّرُونَ
    Is the one who creates like the one who does not create? Will you not receive admonition [16:17]
    هَلْ مِنْ خَالِقٍ غَيْرُ اللَّهِ يَرْزُقُكُم مِّنَ السَّمَاء وَالْأَرْضِوَلَهُ أَسْلَمَ مَن فِي السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالأَرْضِ طَوْعًا
    To Him submit all creatures in the Heavens and the Earth, willingly or unwillingly [3:83]
    Even the disbelievers submit to the natural decree. However as for the Islamic legislated decree, then noone submits to it except the believers.
    It is obligatory upon us to submit to both decrees, the natural decree and the Islamic legislated decree. Or it can be said that we should submit to the Islamic legislated decree just as we have submitted to the natural decree. The one who is disposer of all affairs is Allah, the Most High. Therefore Rabb necessitates three meanings, the third being that Allah is the Disposer of all affairs.



    11. Al 3aalameen means everything besides Allah. This word 3aalameen is derived from 3alaamah (sign) since all of the creation are signs from Allah, the Most High. Every species, type and kind is a sign from the signs of Allah. Everything that you contemplate proves the existance of the Lord, Most High. It also proves his wisdom and mercy.
    12. And what is more true than the statement of the poet who said:
    wa fee kulli shay2in lahu ayah
    tadillu 3ala annahu waa7id
    And in everything is a sign
    Which proves that He is One.
    14. You should note the difference between:
    Al 3aalameen (fatha lam)
    Al 3aalimeen (kasra lam)
    Al 3aalameen is everything other than Allah but al 3aalimeen are the possessors of knowledge, as Allah said:
    وَتِلْكَ الْأَمْثَالُ نَضْرِبُهَا لِلنَّاسِ وَمَا يَعْقِلُهَا إِلَّا الْعَالِمُونَ
    Such are the examples which we portray to people and none understands them except those who possess knowledge.[29:43]
    [from: The Cure: An Explanation of the Opening Chapter - Soorah al Faatihah - by Sheikh Uthaimeen rahimahullah]

    Assalamu 'alaikum

    Do you perhaps know why the writing of the alif is omitted in the phrase "Bismillah"? Because it is actually two words isn't it, bi and ism. And ism is written with an alif but in this phrase it is not included.
