  • Highlights On the meaning of Al-Fatiha


  • أمين

    This word means 'O God, respond positively to me and accept my prayers and supplications'. This concluding part is not part of the sura. However, Muslims are recommended to say 'Amen' after the supplication, which ends this short sura. The Prophet Muhammad was quoted as saying: "When you hear the last verse of the Fatiha, you should say 'Amen' for when the angels hear the verse, they say 'Amen' (Al-Bukhari Vol.6 Hadith No.2). The sura ends with supplication to Allah to guide all human beings to righteousness and truthfulness. lt is a short sura that sums up the whole Qur'an and deals with all the basics of the religion of Islam.

    Notes

    1) When a quotation is taken from the Qur'an, the first number refers to the number of the chapter or sura and the second number refers to the number of the verse.
