Surah Fatiha

Surah Al-Fatiha is a great form of supplication to the Almighty God. There are some recitations like sending Durood e Pak on Rasulullah ﷺ, which result in acceptance of entreaty at once. Umm ul-Quran (Surah Al_Fatiha) is also such narration that leads towards getting the attention of Allah SWT while praying to Him:

Abu Hurairah (R.A) reported that the Holy Prophet ﷺ once said:

Allah, the Exalted, said,

“I have divided the prayer (Al-Fatiha) into two halves between Myself and My servant and My servant shall have what he asks for.

If he says, [ ﺍﻟْﺤَﻤْﺪُ ﻟﻠَّﻪِ ﺭَﺏِّ ﺍﻟْﻌَـﻠَﻤِﻴﻦَ ]

Allah says, `My servant has praised Me.

‘ When the servant says, [ ﺍﻟﺮَّﺣْﻤَـﻦِ ﺍﻟﺮَّﺣِﻴﻢِ ]

Allah says, `My servant has glorified Me.

‘ When he says, [ ﻣَـﻠِﻚِ ﻳَﻮْﻡِ ﺍﻟﺪِّﻳﻦِ ]

Allah says, `My servant has glorified Me,’ or `My servant has related all matters to Me.

‘ When he says, [ ﺇِﻳَّﺎﻙَ ﻧَﻌْﺒُﺪُ ﻭَﺇِﻳَّﺎﻙَ ﻧَﺴْﺘَﻌِﻴﻦُ ]

Allah says, `This is between Me and My servant, and My servant shall acquire what he sought.

‘ When he says, [ ﺍﻫْﺪِﻧَﺎ ﺍﻟﺼِّﺮَﺍﻁَ ﺍﻟْﻤُﺴْﺘَﻘِﻴﻢَ – ﺻِﺮَﺍﻁَ ﺍﻟَّﺬِﻳﻦَ ﺃَﻧْﻌَﻤْﺖَ ﻋَﻠَﻴْﻬِﻢْ ﻏَﻴْﺮِ ﺍﻟْﻤَﻐْﻀُﻮﺏِ ﻋَﻠَﻴْﻬِﻢْ ﻭَﻻَ ﺍﻟﻀَّﺂﻟِّﻴﻦَ ]

Allah says, `This is for My servant, and My servant shall acquire what he asked for.”
