Dhikr #01
Quranic Dhikr (Chapter 1, Verses 1-7)

Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem

Assalaamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullah Wa Barakatuh

Hello & welcome back my fellow brothers and sisters. Today’s Dhikr is an entire Surah from the Holy Quran. You guessed it right, it’s Suratul Fatiha (The Opening). I have already written a Hadith series on this Suratul, you can find it in the link below:

Suratul Fatiha is the most famous Dhikr in Islamic history with the 3 Quls of course.

Our Prophet instruct us to read this Surah when we are about to go to sleep, when we wake up, and of course in every since unit of prayer and in many circumstances that if I were to enumerate them we will never finish.

Without further ado, let’s begin.

Arabic Text:

”بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ ۝ ٱلْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ رَبِّ ٱلْعَـٰلَمِيْنَ ﴿٢﴾ الرَّحْمَـٰنِ الرَّحِيْمِ ﴿٣﴾ مَـٰلِكِ يَوْ مِ ٱلدِّيْنِ ﴿٤﴾ إِيَّاكَ نَعْبُدُ وَإِيَّاكَ نَسْتَعِيْنُ ﴿٥﴾ ٱهْدِنَا ٱلصِّرَ‌ٰطَ ٱلْمُسْتَقِيْمَ ﴿٦﴾ صِرَ‌ٰطَ ٱلَّذِيْنَ أَنْعَمْتَ عَلَيْهِمْ غَيْرِ ٱلْمَغْضُوبِ عَلَيْهِمْ وَلَا ٱلضَّآلِّيْنَ ﴿٧﴾”

Transliteration:

”Bismil Allahi arrahmani arraheem. Alhamdu lillahi rabbi alAAalameen. Arrahmani arraheem. Maliki yawmi addeen. Iyyaka naAAbudu wa-iyyaka nastaAAeen. Ihdina assirata almustaqeem. Sirata allatheena anAAamta AAalayhim ghayri almaghdoobi AAalayhim wala addalleen.”

Translation:

”In the name of Allah , the Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful. [All] praise is [due] to Allah , Lord of the worlds. The Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful. Sovereign of the Day of Recompense. It is You we worship and You we ask for help. Guide us to the straight path. The path of those upon whom You have bestowed favour, not of those who have evoked [Your] anger or of those who are astray”

Benefits:

Allah responds to the believer when he recites Surah Al-Fatiah. Abu Hurayrah (R.A) who said that the Messenger of Allah (Peace and Blessings of Allaah be upon him) said "Allah, the Glorious and Exalted said, "I have divided the prayer between myself and my servant equally and my servant shall be granted what he asked for". [Sahih Muslim]

So try as hard as you can to memorize (with awesome tajweed & vocalization), understand and teach this Surah to the best of your ability.

I hope this helps us all.

Jazakumullahu Khairan
