Praise be to God, the Lord of the Worlds, The Merciful One, the Compassionate One, Master of the Day of Doom. Thee alone we serve, to Thee alone we cry for help. Guide us in the straight path The path of them Thou hast blessed. Not of those with whom Thou art angry Nor of those who go astray. The Fattiḥa, the "Lord's Prayer" of Islam, is the opening sūra of the Qur’ān. It is recited for each new beginning.
