Sahih Muslim records on the authority of Abu Hurayrah (R) who said that the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) 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”. Therefore, when the servant says, “All praises and thanks are due to Allah, the Lord of the worlds’ ALLAH says, My servant has praised Me. When he says, ‘The All-Merciful, the Most Merciful, ‘ALLAH says, ‘My servant has extolled Me.

Saheeh Al Bukhari

Saheeh Muslim

  1. Seven often repeated verses recited in every unit of prayer. It is also named so because Surah Al Fatihah’s seven verses are regularly recited at the start of each rakaah of prayer.

  2. A cure for the heart. Surah Al Fatihah contains a supplication for protection from misguidance and from the anger of ALLAH. This thus protects the heart from corrupt knowledge and evil intentions. The hidden cure to both these illnesses is also found in the verse “You (Oh ALLAH) we worship and from you do we seek help”
