Why Was Surah Al Fatiha Revealed (Asbab al-n-Nuzul)?

One among the first Surahs of the Quran to be revealed.
Allah bless him and give him peace, whenever he went out, used to hear someone calling him ‘O
Muhammad!’ And whenever he heard this, he used to flee.

Waraqah ibn Nawfal advised the Prophet to remain in his place when the caller calls him so that he hears what he has to tell him. And so when he went out, he heard the calling: ‘O Muhammad!’ He said: ‘Here I am! At your service!’ The caller said: ‘Say: I bear witness that there is no god but Allah and I bear witness that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah’.

Tafseer of Surah Al Fatiha Meaning in English (Verse by Verse)

(بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَٰنِ الرَّحِيمِ( ١

In the Name of God, the Compassionate, the Merciful:

  (الْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ رَبِّ الْعَالَمِينَ ( ٢ 

Praise be to God, is a predicate of a nominal clause, the content of which is intended to extol God [bynstating that]: He possesses the praise of all creatures, or that He [alone] deserves their praise.

God is a proper noun for the One truly worthy of worship; Lord of all Worlds, that is, [He is] the One Who owns all of creation: humans, jinn, angels, animals and others as well, each of which may be referred to as a ‘world’; one says ‘the world of men’, or ‘world of the jinn’ etc.

(3) الرَّحْمَٰنِ الرَّحِيمِ

The Compassionate, the Merciful: that is to say, the One who possesses ‘mercy’, which means to want what is good for those who deserve it.

 (4) مَالِكِ يَوْمِ الدِّينِ

Master of the Day of Judgement: that is, [the day of] requite, the Day of Resurrection. The reason for the specific mention [of the Day of Judgement] is that the mastery of none shall appear on that Day except that of God, may He be exalted,

as is indicated by [God’s words] ‘Whose is the Kingdom today?’ God’s’ (if one reads it Malik [as opposed to Malik], then this signifies that He has possession of the entire affair on the Day of Resurrection,

 (5) إِيَّاكَ نَعْبُدُ وَإِيَّاكَ نَسْتَعِينُ

You [alone] we worship, and You [alone] we ask for help: that is to say, we reserve worship for You
[alone] by way of acknowledging Your Oneness (Tawhid) and so on, and we ask for [Your] assistance in worship and in other things.

(اهْدِنَا الصِّرَاطَ  الْمُسْتَقِيمَ ﴿ 6

Guide us to the straight path: that is, ‘show us the way to it’. This is substituted by:

 صِرَاطَ الَّذِينَ أَنْعَمْتَ عَلَيْهِمْ غَيْرِ الْمَغْضُوبِ عَلَيْهِمْ وَلَا الضَّالِّينَ  (7)

Tthe path of those whom You have favored, with guidance (from Alladhina together with its relative clause is substituted by [ghayri l-maghdūbi ‘alayhim]) not [the path] of those against whom there is wrath, namely, the Jews, and nor of those who are astray, namely, the Christians.

The subtle meaning implied by this substitution is that the guided ones are neither the Jews nor the Christians.
