The Significance of Surah Fatiha

Surah Fatiha is the opening of the Quran. The Quran starts with this beautiful surah that summarizes the entire Quran in few verses. That’s why it is called as “The Opening” of the Quran. Besides having the honor of starting the Quran, It also has some very great significance and benefits of reading it.

Prayer (Namaz)

It is a necessary component of namza. Without it namaz is not complete. So, out of the 114 surahs only surah fatiha gets recited in every namaz.

Allah answers the recite

During the recitation of this surah Allah himself answers the recite, which in itself is a great honor. – See more at:

Abu Huraira has heard God’s messenger declare that God most high had said, “I have divided the prayer into two halves between me and my servant, and my servant will receive what he asks.”

When the servant says, “Praise be to God, the Lord of the universe,” God most high says, “My servant has praised me.”

When he says, “The compassionate, the Merciful,” God most high says, “My servant has lauded me.”

When he says, “Possessor of the day of judgment,” He says,” My servant has glorified me.”

When he says, “Thee do we worship and of Thee do we ask help,” He says, “This is between me and my servant, and my servant will receive what he asks.”

Then when he says, “Guide us in the straight path, the path of those to whom Thou art generous, not of those with whom Thou art angry nor of those who go astray,” He says, “This is for my servant, and my servant will receive what he asks.”
