In the name of Allah, the Benevolent, the Merciful

Praise be to Allah, Lord of the Worlds

The Benevolent, the Merciful

Master of the Day of Judgment

You do we serve; You do we ask for help

Guide us on the right path

The path of those You favor

Not those who earn Your wrath

Nor those who go astray

-Al Fatihah

Exquisite, is not it?

We recite this every day, seventeen times per day at least and it could be limitless. If we really mean what we utter wouldn’t our lives be that beautiful? But the fact is it is not. Why?

Because we didn’t mean what we say.

Let me tell you and I something. Something from the first verse-In the name of Allah. This- He is teaching us a manner to be practiced, that is to start everything with ‘In the name of Him, In the name of Allah’. And this means a lot.

Ones do not simply say, in the name Allah when they are about to do bad things. They will be ashamed of that. They do not recite in the name of Allah before go flirting, before watching porns, before smoking, before cheating and the list goes. They do not.

And this verse remarks a separation line. It separates good and bad deeds. And if we really mean what we say, all the times, we are separating ourselves from the bad things, away from the wrong path. Can you imagine how exquisite is that? Can you see how He tries to guide us? Can’t you just open your eyes and heart for once and see the beauty of this?

And this is just the beginning of the chapter.
You and I, we have lots more to discover.

But do we really mean what we say?
