Lesson 3 for Children : Salah (Part 02 – Al-Fatiha)

بِسْمِ اللّهِ الرَّحْمَنِ الرَّحِيمِ

Bissmillahi Rahmani Raheem

(In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.)

Assalamoalaikum, I know this is late but here comes the third lesson. Normally I would take it slow. It was only 3 days ago when my son finally learnt the lesson 2. Sorry for the delay,InshaAllah the rest will follow sooner as we are ahead of schedule at home…

Al Fatiha:

We have to recite the surah from Quraan called Al Fatiha or “The Opening” in every rakat of the prayer. We start our first rakat from the verses we learnt previously and then we recite Al Fatiha.  It is always followed by another chapter from the rest of the Quran. Today we will learn Al Fatiha, InshaAllah.

Bissmillahi Rahmani Raheem.

Alhamdolillahi Rabbil ‘Alameen

Ar Rahmani Raheem

Maaliki Yomiddeen

Iyyaka na’budu wa iyyaka nasta’een

ihdinassiratal mustaqeem

siratwal ladheena an’amta ‘alaihim

ghairil maghdoubi alaihim



بِسْمِ اللّهِ الرَّحْمَنِ الرَّحِيمِ
In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.

الْحَمْدُ للّهِ رَبِّ الْعَالَمِينَ
Praise be to Allah, the Cherisher and Sustainer of the worlds;

الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيمِ
Most Gracious, Most Merciful;

مَلِكِ يَوْمِ الدِّينِ
Master of the Day of Judgement.

إِيَّاكَ نَعْبُدُ وإِيَّاكَ نَسْتَعِينُ
Thee do we worship, and Thine aid we seek.

اهدِنَا الصِّرَاطَ المُستَقِيمَ
Show us the straight way,

صِرَاطَ الَّذِينَ أَنعَمتَ عَلَيهِمْ غَيرِ المَغضُوبِ عَلَيهِمْ وَلاَ الضَّالِّينَ
The way of those on whom Thou hast bestowed Thy Grace, those whose (portion) is not wrath, and who go not astray.

We recite Al fatiha while we tie our hands across our tummy, holding left hand with our right hand.

( Note to parents, please show the kids the way to stand during salah while reciting Al fatiha and if it is possible please teach the proper pronunciation to your kids, the ain shown by ” ‘a ” the dh is a bigger n fuller z sound etc… I couldn’t write the sod sound so just wrote s)
