The outstanding depths of analysis offered by Allama Ghulam Rasul Sa'idi here is testimony to his knowledge, insight and wisdom. Without excessive deviation from the Surah itself, the author offers a comprehensive analysis of countless issues pertaining to fiqh (jurisprudence) and aqida (Islamic Doctrines), such as reading Bismillah in Salah, the legitimacy of Wasila in Islam, Shariah on conceitedness and reading Amin loudly in Salaah. The key words in Surah Fatiha - such as Hamd, Alamin, Din, Rahman, Rahim - have been meticulously defined and backed with references from reliable and relevant sources. It is hoped that readers of all ages and ability will be able to benefit from this commentary of the most read Surah in the world.---Ather Hussain al-Azhari.
