THE GREATEST SURAH IN THE QUR'AN - 'AL-FATIHAH'

Friday, 15 February 2013

February 15:

According to the hadith of the prophet (Sallellahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) (see below), Surah Al-Fatihah is the greatest Surah in the Quran. This Surah has many benefits as was mentioned to us by the prophet (Sallellahu Alaihi Wa Sallam).

"IT CAN BE USED TO WARD OFF EVIL AND AS A GENERAL HEALING."

The reference to this Surah is also made in other parts of the Quran. Consider the following verse of Surah Al-Hijr:

"And indeed, We have bestowed upon you seven of Al-Mathani (the seven repeatedly recited Verses), (i.e. Surat Al-Fatiha) and the Grand Quran."
[Quran: Surah Al-Hijr (87)]

Narrated Abu Sa‘îd bin Al-Mu‘alla:
While I was praying in the mosque, Allah’s Messenger called me but I did not respond to him. Later I said, “O Allah’s Messenger, I was praying.” He said, “Didn’t Allah say – Answer Allah (by obeying Him) and His Messenger when he calls you.” (V.8:24). He then said to me, “I will teach you a Surah which is the greatest Surah in the Quran, before you leave the mosque.” Then he got hold of my hand, and when he intended to leave (the mosque), I said to him, “Didn’t you say to me, “I will teach you a Surah which is the greatest Surah in the Quran?” He said: "Al-Hamdu lillahi Rabbil-‘âlamîn [i.e. all the praises and thanks be to Allah, the Lord of the ‘Âlamîn (mankind, jinn and all that exists)], Sûrat Al-Fâtihah which is As-Sab‘ Al-Mathâni (i.e. the seven repeatedly recited Verses) and the Grand Quran which has been given to me.”
[Sahih Al-Bukhâri, Vol.6, Hadith No. 1].

Surah Al-Fatihah is the first chapter of the Quran and must be recited in every prayer:

Narrated ‘Ubâdah bin As-Sâmit Allâh’s Messenger said:
"Whoever does not recite Sûrat Al-Fâtihah in his prayer, his prayer is invalid."
[Sahih Al-Bukhâri, Vol.1, Hadîth No. 723]

The Surah appears below in its entirety:

1. In the Name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful.

2. All the praises and thanks be to Allah, the Lord of the Alameen (mankind, jinns and all that exists).

3. The Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful.

4. The Only Owner (and the Only Ruling Judge) of the Day of Recompense (i.e. the Day of Resurrection)

5. You (Alone) we worship, and You (Alone) we ask for help (for each and everything).

6. Guide us to the Straight Way

7. The Way of those on whom You have bestowed Your Grace, not (the way) of those who earned Your Anger, nor of those who went astray.
(AAMEEN)
[Quran, Surah Al-Fatihah]

Yes, either praying behind the Imam or individually, recitation of Surat Al-Fatihah is a must. There is no prayer without Surat Al-Fatihah including Funeral prayer.

SURAH AL-FATIHAH.

IF OFFERING PRAYER BEHIND THE IMAM THEN IMAM IS RESPONSIBLE FOR ALL PEOPLES PRAYER, SO NO NEED TO RECITE SURAH AL-FATIHAH WHEN WE ARE BEHIND THE IMAM WHILE OFFERING NAMAZ WITH JAMAAT. PLS YOU HAVE CONFIRM WITH ULMA. JAZAKALLAH.

Request to Siasat Editors

A Sincere Request to Siasat Editors

Assalaam Alaikum!

I think Siasat people should Check what comments are allowed to be posted at least in this Section by a Person with Religious Knowledge. We Love this section which is a source of Inspiration and Knowledge for us.

Is This Site a Blog of Open Discussion about Religions or Aqaid?

Take an Example of this post about a Surah of Quran. An unbiased article explaining the fazail of Surah Al-Fatiha. But given chance a Barelvi has an opinion while a deobandi has another or a Salafi is more worried about Hadith No. or authenticity or a Shia trying to put doubts about authenticity of Sahabah and all in all the now the Non-Muslims are commenting when there is No Aalim sitting here to clarify these Biased or Unbiased comments!

Hence I Request Siasat to remove the comments section from ISLAMIC HUB, PLEASE!

It is Not that we don't have answers.. But Here, siasat has not appointed an AALIM to address these comments. Usually comments are from foolish youngsters and the ones who get influenced are also youngsters or the non Muslims who do know what is the Truth or a false comment.

Assalaamu Alaikum!

1000% Disagree with you.

Dear Brother,

Don’t belittle your own brotheran. It is haram.
You have no evidence of youngsters posting comments. If you don’t like a comment you can either correct it leave it in the hands of Allah(swt).
Are you trying to shut down non-Muslims from commenting or clearing doubts? Why? This is haram. We are supposed to be open to Muslims and non-Muslims in the similar fashion.

Please don’t forget Islam is the religion for entire mankind and everyone is welcome to comment here.

Agree

I will agree with your comment. Siasat team pls. take a note on this issue. Jazak Allahu Khair.

I agree

I agree 100%

Assalamalaikum

Ameen
