Al Fatiha

Surah Fatiha – The Opening Chapter

It is connected with both the Mecca and Madina. So it is called a Makki and Madini Surah of the Holy Quran, which means few verses were discovered on the Apostle of God (Allah) while he was in Makkah, that is, before the migration to Madina and few after migration to Madina. Al-Fatiha itself means “The opening” since this chapter appears right at the beginning of the Holy Quran and serves as a gateway to read the Qur’an Majeed. On the other hand, it also serves as a supplication prayer in the beginning of Salah.

It is necessary to recite it in the salah. Initially, it was the fifth chapter that was revealed, but after Furqan e Hameed was gathered, it was placed at the beginning. It also has the honor of being the first Surah to be fully known. Although it only consists of 7 verses, but still explains the greatness of the Almighty ALLAH in a very comprehensive way and it is also a great means of supplication to ask Allah to keep us on the right path.
