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.

My Islam - 2022 In Review (impact report)
Alhamdulillah – we had a busy year.
First and foremost, to all the readers and supporters of MyIslam.org, we want to express our sincerest gratitude as we welcome another blessed Ramadan. None of this would be possible without your support.
Let’s begin with the goal of this site:
The intent behind myislam.org is to create one of the most useful Islamic website for Muslims and non-muslims alike. Our approach is to research and write high-quality content and create online applications (Qur’an reader online, games, tools, resources, etc.).
We want to share and summarize the six major projects we’ve completed since last Ramadan, and then we’ll look at the impact our site has had with some website statistics.
(#1) 99 Names of Allah:
1. Published the 99 names of Allah (سُبْحَٰنَهُۥ وَتَعَٰلَىٰ) for free on our site for all to read. A 110,000+ word long guide elucidating the beautiful names of Allah (swt) and read by over 30,000 people every month!
2. Along with this series, we had a real-time email course that spanned eight months and went out to over 70,000 people every week. We received over 900+ reviews and comments for feedback and averaged 4.57/5.00 stars.
3. Developed 99 names of Allah guessing game, played over 40,000 times, and was shared over 867 times.
(#2) Qur’an v3.0:
Listen and Understand the Qur’an (see it here)
1. Includes both Arabic and English Audio-playback with the ability to playback as Arabic only, English only, or you could listen to both.
2. Word-by-word karoke style highlighting.
3. 8 different relaxing thematic backgrounds (4 videos & 4 wall-papers).
4. Ambient background sounds (fan, water, nature, fire).
5. 280% faster than v2.0.
6. Select the word to reveal it’s English meaning + audio for pronunciation.
(#3) Qur’an PDFs
1. 114 Beautifully designed PDFs, ornamental frame, and also free.
2. Includes Arabic, Transliteration, and Sahih International Translation.
3. Made primarily for offline use, can be used in kindle or other PDF readers.
4. Made interactive, click on any ayah in the PDF, and it will transport you to the tafsir page on our website for that verse.
5. Distributed over 29,601+ copies to people in the last year alone.
(#4) Islamic Coloring Book Application
We developed an online coloring book application and released the first book for children and adults. It includes a complete audiobook on the ninety names of Allah to follow along. This one is exciting because the core technology is developed, and we can now publish an entire series of educational books to make learning important Islamic content and life principles fun and engaging.
• Download and sign your artwork to save on your device
• Can expand the text to read the full description
• Listen to the audiobook version
• Drawing Tool
• Paint Bucket Tool
• Textured Patterns
• Undo/Redo button (keyboard shortcuts on desktop)
• Set custom colors
Insha-Allah, with time, we’ll have a whole library of educational content for you to use on a single device. This would be like carrying a whole library of books but available to you everywhere you go… with an interactive element that can be far better for learning. The savings we’ll be passing on to users is quite large, a single book + audiobook can cost upwards of $20.00, if we can publish 20 books indepdently and make it available for free, that’s $400.00 in educational content for every person.
(#5) Qibla Augmented Reality
We offer three experiences to help you find the exact location of the Kaaba. The first is the coolest of the three with AR (augmented reality). We teleport you directly from your home to being in Masjid Al-Haram where you can look around to find exactly where the Kaaba would be.
(#6) Who wants to be a scholar – 99 Names of Allah
A fun and exciting game to test your knowledge. With over 146 unique questions that get harder the further you go, you’ll slowly advance to becoming a true scholar. With each wrong answer you’ll have an opportunity to learn something new. As we write more guides, we’ll create more quizzes to test a person’s knowledge on that subject.
Year in review – statistics:
It’s fun to look at the stats, but evaluating the impact the right message could have on a single person delivered at the right time is hard. What would that be worth? What would the butterfly effect be for their community, family, and neighborhood? I am not sure, and it’s impossible to measure. So, although one of the site’s goals is to continue to grow and reach a larger audience – it’s not all about the views.
Updated Results For This Year:
We’re grateful for all the support. Our request to you is if you are able and like the work we’ve done thus far, please consider donating. Because of the generosity of a small group, we’ve released all our projects for free. It’s the way we think that helps the most people and Insha-Allah we can continue down this path.
