The benefits of reciting Surah Fatiha are described in the following hadith3 of the the Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him):

 

Abu Huraira has heard Allah’s messenger Sallellahu alaihuwa sallam(peace be upon him) 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.”
 
 
 
 

 

Surah Faatihah is among the greatest gifts which were bestowed upon the Holy Prophet Muhammad Sallellahu alaihuwasallam (peace be upon him) according to the following verse of the Holy Qur’an4:

 

Wa laqad ‘aataay-naaka Sab-’am-minal-masaanii wal-Qur-’aanal-’Aziim. (15:87) “We have given thee seven of the oft-repeated (verses) and the great Qur’an” (15:87)

 

The Status of Surah Fatiha described in the above ayat of the Holy Qur’an has been explained in the following hadith5:

 

Abu Huraira told that when Allah’s messenger Sallellahu alaihuwa sallam(peace be upon him)once asked Ubayy b. Ka’b how he recited the course of prayer and he recited Umm al-Qur’an, he said, “By Him in whose hand my soul is, nothing like it has been sent down in Torah, the Injil, the Zabur, or the Qur’an and it is seven of the oft-repeated verses and the mighty Quran which I have been given.”

    SubhanAllah, such valuable information you’ve shared with us. No wonder we are told to recite Surah Faatiha slowly and to pause after each verse during prayers.

    Thanks, sweetheart!

    MashAllah, inspires me to work harder on getting better at reciting it. Sadly I’m still pretty tongue tied when it comes to prayer.

House in Paradise!

Narrated AbuUmamah: The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) said: I guarantee a house in the surroundings of Paradise for a man who avoids quarrelling even if he were in the right, a house in the middle of Paradise for a man who avoids lying even if he were joking, and a house in the upper part of Paradise for a man who made his character good.(Sunan Abu Dawood,Book 41, Number 4782)
