"The Opening"

(Revealed at Mecca, Verses: 7)

In the name of Allah, The Merciful, The All-merciful


Praise be to God, the Lord of the World, (1)

the Merciful, the All-merciful, (2)

the Master of the Day of Recompense. (3)

Thee we serve, and to Thee we pray for help. (4)

Guide us to the Straight Path, (5)

the path of those whom Thou hast blessed,(6)

not of those who incurred wrath, nor of the astray. (7)
