Surah Fatiha ayat 5-6
About this Surah:
Surah Fatiha is called “the opening” for being the first Surah of the Qur’an. It is regarded by most to be an early Meccan surah because its required reading in daily prayer. One of the leading schools believe it was revealed in Medina, however, this is generally less likely.
Some refer to this Surah as Umm al-Kittab meaning “Mother of the Book” because it is believed to contain the entire message of the Qur’an. Narrated Abu Hurairah: that the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said: “Al-Hamdulillah is Umm Al-Qur’an and Umm Al-Kitab and the seven oft-repeated.” (Jami` at-Tirmidhi 3124)
Among other names, Surah fatiha is called al-Shifa meaning “the cure” for it’s perceived healing of the body and soul. There is hadith in Bukhari which corroborates this notion.
Narrated Abu Sa`id Al-Khudri: Some of the companions of the Prophet (ﷺ) came across a tribe amongst the tribes of the Arabs, and that tribe did not entertain them. While they were in that state, the chief of that tribe was bitten by a snake (or stung by a scorpion). They said, (to the companions of the Prophet (ﷺ) ), “Have you got any medicine with you or anybody who can treat with Ruqya?” The Prophet’s companions said, “You refuse to entertain us, so we will not treat (your chief) unless you pay us for it.” So they agreed to pay them a flock of sheep. One of them (the Prophet’s companions) started reciting Surat-al-Fatiha and gathering his saliva and spitting it (at the snake-bite). The patient got cured and his people presented the sheep to them, but they said, “We will not take it unless we ask the Prophet (whether it is lawful).” When they asked him, he smiled and said, “How do you know that Surat-al-Fatiha is a Ruqya? Take it (flock of sheep) and assign a share for me.”
The contents of this Surah itself are about the nature of Allah (سُبْحَٰنَهُۥ وَتَعَٰلَىٰ) in the first four verses. It begins with the bismillah, claiming his merciful nature, then recognizes and praises His disposition as being the Lord of the worlds, and the king of the day of judgment. The middle part of the Surah deals with our relationship to the creator, it is he we worship. We put our complete trust in Him, and we ask for his help alone. In the last two verses, it asks for guidance, if Allah (سُبْحَٰنَهُۥ وَتَعَٰلَىٰ) is to bestow his favours on us nothing can befall us, we can’t be led astray.

The path of those upon whom You have bestowed favor, not of those who have evoked [Your] anger or of those who are astray.
The way of those on whom Thou hast bestowed Thy Grace, those whose (portion) is not wrath, and who go not astray.
The way of those whom You have favoured, who did not incur Your wrath, who are not astray.
The Way of those on whom You have bestowed Your Grace, not (the way) of those who earned Your Anger, nor of those who went astray.
The path of those whom Thou hast favoured; Not the (path) of those who earn Thine anger nor of those who go astray.
The Path of the ones whom You have favored, other than that of the ones against whom You are angered, and not (that of) the erring. (It is customary to say “amîn” “amen” at the end of this Surah).
the path of those You have blessed, those who incur no anger and who have not gone astray.
ان لوگوں کی راه جن پر تو نے انعام کیا ان کی نہیں جن پر غضب کیا گیا (یعنی وه لوگ جنہوں نے حق کو پہچانا، مگر اس پر عمل پیرا نہیں ہوئے) اور نہ گمراہوں کی (یعنی وه لوگ جو جہالت کے سبب راه حق سے برگشتہ ہوگئے)
