The Holy Qur'an (Maulana Muhammad Ali)/1. The Opening
1. The Opening (Al-Fatihah)
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.
1 Praise be to God, the Lord of the worlds,
2 The Beneficent, the Merciful,
3 Master of the day of Requital.
4 Thee do we serve and Thee do we beseech for help.
5 Guide us on the right path,
6 The path of those upon whom Thou hast bestowed favours,
7 Not those upon whom wrath is brought down, nor those who go astray.
