Rasulullah (pbuh) has said: “There can be no prayer which does not have Suratul Fatiha as its basis.”
The sura can be divided into three sections: The first is an exposition of reality and awakening to His attributes. The second section is where the heart cries out in recognition of the relationship of the Creator and the created and makes a request for guidance. The third part is like the echo of reality in order to confirm the request and answer it.
