Surah Al-Fatihah

The (Seven Mathani) is the name of Surah Al-Fatiha, the word “seven” refers to the number of its verses, and the word “Mathani” means that Muslims praise Allah, or it may mean that Muslims repeat it in each rak’aa.

 Surah Al-Fatiha must be read in every single raka’a in the Muslim’s prayer, as prophet Muhammad-peace and blessings be upon him- said :(No prayer for those who didn’t recite the opening of the book)

And he also said: (Each prayer that the opening of the book is not being read in, is a pre-maturity). When you start to learn Surah Al-Fatiha, you will find that it is a dialogue between the servant and Allah the Almighty, as Allah the Almighty said in Hadith Qudsi:(The prayer was divided between me and my servant, and I respond to what my servant asked. So, if the servant says: (praise be to Allah, the lord of the worlds) 

Allah says: (My servant praises me).

And if he says: (Al-Rahman, the most merciful),

God Almighty says: (My servant pays tribute to me).

And if he says: (The owner of the day of Judgment),

Allah says: (My servant glorified me).

And if he says: (We worship you, and we seek for your help),

Allah says: ( This is between Me and My servant).

And if he says: (Guide us to the straight path, the path of people who you’ve blessed them, and you are not angry with them and they are not being lost),

He says: (This is for my servant, and I respond to all my servant asks).
