In the name of God, the Gracious, the Merciful.
Praise be to God, Lord of the worlds,
The Gracious, the Merciful,
Master of the Day of Judgment,
Thee alone do we worship, and Thee alone do we ask for help.
Guide us along the straight path,
The path of those upon whom Thou bestowed Thy blessings,
Not of those who incurred Thy wrath,
Nor of those who have gone astray. ” (1:1-7)
