The surah that is The Opening to the Quran and the straight way of God
Surah 1 / 7 Verses / Revealed At Makkah

Al-Fâtiḥah

1:1 In the name of God,
the All-Merciful,
the Mercy-Giving.
1:2 All praise is for God ˹alone˺,
Lord of ˹All˺ the Worlds,
1:3 the All-Merciful,
the Mercy-Giving,
1:4 Master of the Day of Judgment.

1:5 It is Your ˹alone˺
we worship
And it is You ˹alone˺
we ask for help.
1:6 Guide us
along the straight way —
1:7 the way of those
upon whom
You have bestowed grace,
not those upon whom
there is wrath,
nor those astray.
