Surah Al-Fatihah: Get Your Sins Forgiven by Saying Ameen

Did you know that researchers have found that Surah Al-Fatihah is being recited every second of every day around the world? 

Muslims repeat the opening chapter of the Quran multiple times daily, not just in prayer but in times of despair and need. But are the words we are reciting reaching our hearts? Are we fully comprehending the words leaving our lips?

In this brief video, Sheikh Yassir Qadhi breaks down the last verse of Surah Al Fatihah. 

{Ghayri Al-Maghđūbi `Alayhim Wa Lā Ađ-Đāllīn}

{The Path of those You have blessed—not those You are displeased with, or those who are astray} (Al-Fatihah 1:7)

In the previous verse, we asked Allah Almighty to guide us to the Straight Path. Now we are asking more specifically to be guided to the path of those Allah favors and not the path of those that anger Him.

What you’ll soon discover is the importance of knowing about the path we don’t want to be on. Because really, we can’t appreciate light without knowing the darkness.

Sheikh Yassir finishes off the video by explaining what ameen means and the proper way to say it. Do we say it out loud or silently? And did you know, that if we say ameen the same time as the angels (who also say ameen when Surah Al-Fatihah is recited), all our sins are forgiven?

Don’t miss this enlightening video as the benefits will be felt as early as your next prayer.
