A Series of Guidelines taken from Surah al-Fatihah
So if we need pondering and reflecting over the Qurʾān and understanding it, then our need for due contemplation over al-Fātihah — which is the Mother of The Qurʾān, the best chapter in the Qurʾān and the one generally containing what the entirety of the Qurʾān covers —is more dire and severe. This is why it needs every believing servant to give this magnificent Sūrah what it deserves from the contemplation and understanding of its meanings and proofs so that he can benefit and ascend by the grace of the King and the Giver of All (Allāh). contains a reference to some of the guidelines of this blessed Sūrah, along with its tremendous benefits and abundant goodness — the origin of which are lessons that I gave and then later revised, summarized, and released in this form. I hope that Allāh brings about religious and worldly gains and benefits through it. I firstly and lastly praise Allāh, and I thank Him inwardly and outwardly. I cannot let this moment pass to extend my gratitude to my brother, the virtuous Shaykh, "Abdul-Hādī Ibn Hasan Wahabī, for his appreciated efforts and noble work to produce this book. May Allāh reward him with good and place this (his endeavors) on his scale of good deed. I ask Allāh, the Most Generous for Tawfīq (ability to be successful) and acceptance. May He elevate the rank of our Prophet Muḥammad and send peace upon him, his family, and companions.
