Sura 1: Opening / Fatiha
Of Mecca

In the name of the merciful and compassionate God.

1 Praise belongs to God, the Lord of the worlds,

2 he the merciful, the compassionate,

3 he, the ruler of the day of judgment!

4 Thee we serve and Thee we ask for aid.

5 Guide us in the right path,

6 the path of those Thou art gracious to;

7 not of those Thou art wroth with; nor of those who err.
