01- al-Fatiha- 1-7- Seekers Quran-Tafsir- Shaykh Abdul-Rahim Reasat

n this episode, Shaykh Abdul-Rahim Reasat begins a series on the tafsir of the Qur’an. It covers the key themes and discussions of the Fatiha, and he encourages us to reflect on the Qur’an through our understanding.
He covers the major themes of the sura as expressed by its verses, names, and linguistic meanings. To explain these concepts further, he adds commentary from hadiths, tafsir collections, and the sciences of the Arabic language.
Each word of the verses provides a unique, beautiful meaning which indicates Allah’s qualities and relationship with creation. It is for this reason that scholars understand the Fatiha to not only open the Book of Allah but also to define the purpose of our lives in relation to our Creator. We ask Allah’s help to guide us to the straight path and to pursue knowledge that will benefit us in this world and the next.
