A contemporary translation of al-Fatiha

In the name of the Beloved One,

The Infinitely Compassionate, the Infinitely Merciful.

All praise is due to Allah, the Sustainer of all the Worlds,

The Infinitely Compassionate, the Infinitely Merciful,

The Sovereign of the Day of Resurrection.

Thee alone we worship and to Thee alone we pray.

Guide us to the Straight Path
of self-cultivation to the Gardens of Paradise,

the path of those upon whom
Thou hast bestowed blessings, favors and Grace,

not of those who are consciously or unconsciously immersed in Sacred Chaos,

Nor of those of who have lost their way.

~ Rendered by Dr. Jalaledin Ebrahim
