Surat Al-Fatiha in English translation

~ Opening the Heart ~
We begin in the Name of God,
Everlasting Mercy, Infinite Compassion.
Praise be to God, Loving Lord of all the worlds.
Everlasting Mercy, Infinite Compassion.
Eternal Strength of every living being,
Whose Majestic Power embraces us
on the day of the great return.
Only You do we adore, and to You alone do we cry for help.
Guide us, O God, on the path of Perfect Harmony,
the path of those whom You have blessed with the gifts
of Peace, Joy, Serenity, and Delight,
the path of those who have not been brought down by anger,
the path of those who have not been lost along the way
So be it.
Translation by Imam Bilal Hyde
