THE OPENING (al-Fatihah) – Translation

This series of posts will include a translation of select verses from the Surahs in the Quran. This will be a selection of verses that I thought carried one or more of the following attributes:

They were direct commandments.

They hinted upon action and behavior that is deemed superior by the Almighty.

They were a reflection of a way to live our lives on this planet.

They provided an answer to some of society’s most burning religious and social questions.

They offer a stark contrast to some extremist agenda often attached to the religion Islam.

They shed light on morality, peacekeeping, intention, and integrity.

Translation with verse number in brackets:

  1. In the name of God, the Gracious, the Merciful.
  2. Praise be to God, Lord of the Worlds.
  3. The Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
  4. Master of the Day of Judgment.
  5. It is You we worship, and upon You we call for help.
  6. Guide us to the straight path.
  7. The path of those You have blessed, not of those against whom there is anger, nor of those who are misguided.
Disclaimer: All the translations of the verses in the posts will be directly from the translation by Talal Itani which can be found at this link. Furthermore, all posts will be a selection of verses taken from the Quran. If you feel like you need a contextual reference, the verse numbers will help you locate it in the Surah’s translation found at the link mentioned before.
