The Meaning of Surah Al- Fatihah- the "Essence" of the Holy Qur'an

In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful. (Muslims begin with this phrase before saying/doing anything).

Praise be to Allah The Cherisher and Sustainer of the Worlds;

Most Gracious, Most Merciful;

Master of the Day of Judgement.

You do we worship, And You do we call on for help.

Guide us along the straight way,

The way of those upon whom You have bestowed Your Grace,

Not those whom You are angry with. And not those who are lost. (Or go astray)
