Supplication and Surah Al-Fatihah

Supplication and Surah Al-Fatihah

Supplication has a great position in Surah Al-Fatihah. It is the key to all good, and Allah Almighty loves his servant to supplicate Him. The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings be upon Him) used to supplicate Allah Almighty all time.

Surah Al-Fatihah includes the etiquettes and conditions of supplication:

1-Devotion to Allah Almighty

There is no mediator between the servant and his Lord in supplication, but it is from the servant directly to Allah Almighty because Allah Almighty is near and responds to the invocation of the supplicant when he calls upon Him as Allah the Almighty said:

‘When My servants ask you ‘O Prophet’ about Me: I am truly nearby. I respond to one’s prayer when they call upon Me. So let them respond ‘with obedience’ to Me and believe in Me, perhaps they will be guided ‘to the Right Way.

Follow up to the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings be upon Him) by making dua’ with the legal supplications that came in the Qur’an and the Sunnah, and every path to Paradise is blocked except for the path of the Noble Messenger (PBUH).

The supplication of a servant continues to be granted as long as he does not supplicate for a sinful thing or for something that would cut off the ties of kinship and he does not grow impatient.

2- Make your request definite and be assured of being answered

He reported Allah’s Messenger as saying, “When one of you makes supplication he must not say, ‘O Allah, forgive me if You want, show mercy to me if You want, provide for me if You want, but must make his request definite, for He does what He wills and there is no one to impose compulsion on Him.” Bukhari transmitted it.

3- Presence of the heart and not being neglectful when supplicating

Supplicate Allah Almighty when you are assured of being answered and Allah Almighty doesn’t answer the supplication from a careless and inattentive heart.

And we will learn from Surah Al-Fatihah the etiquette of supplication by starting to praise Allah as in His saying (All praise is to Allah, Lord of the Worlds) (The Most Compassionate, Most Merciful) (Master of the Day of Judgment) and then supplicate in His saying (Guide us along the Straight Path).

4-The invocation to Allah Almighty, the Blessed and Exalted

We should supplicate Allah the Almighty by legitimate means with His Names and Attributes, and with good deeds, faith, and your worship of Allah the Almighty.

5-The invocation to Allah Almighty with the living righteous people who are present

By saying to a man in front of you that you think he is among the people of goodness and righteousness, to say to him: “Supplicate Allah for us” or “Supplicate Allah Almighty for me and the Muslims.”

6- Supplicating with words that are concise but comprehensive in meaning

Muslim supplicate to Allah the Almighty in each prayer during reciting Surah Al-Fatihah, saying: (Guide us along the Straight Path).

7- The supplicant combines fear and hope in his supplication.

Fear without hope means despair, and no one loses hope in Allah’s mercy except those with no faith.

8- Purity and performing ablution before making a supplication ‘ dua’ ’

It is not a condition, but rather it is complete etiquette before making a supplication.

9- That supplication should be preceded by repentance, and seeking forgiveness

Allah the Almighty grants you a good provision and graciously rewards the doers of good.
