( سُورَةُ ٱلْفَاتِحَةِ )

The Opening Meccan

بِسۡمِ ٱللَّهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِیمِ

In the name of God, The Most Gracious, The Dispenser of Grace:

ٱلۡحَمۡدُ لِلَّهِ رَبِّ ٱلۡعَـٰلَمِینَ

All praise is due to God alone, the Sustainer of all the worlds,

ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِیمِ

The Most Gracious, the Dispenser of Grace,

مَـٰلِكِ یَوۡمِ ٱلدِّینِ

Lord of the Day of Judgment!

إِیَّاكَ نَعۡبُدُ وَإِیَّاكَ نَسۡتَعِینُ

Thee alone do we worship; and unto Thee alone do we turn for aid.

ٱهۡدِنَا ٱلصِّرَ ٰ⁠طَ ٱلۡمُسۡتَقِیمَ

Guide us the straight way.

صِرَ ٰ⁠طَ ٱلَّذِینَ أَنۡعَمۡتَ عَلَیۡهِمۡ غَیۡرِ ٱلۡمَغۡضُوبِ عَلَیۡهِمۡ وَلَا ٱلضَّاۤلِّینَ

The way of those upon whom Thou hast bestowed Thy blessings, not of those who have been condemned [by Thee], nor of those who go astray!
