1. In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.

2. Praise be to God, the Cherisher and Sustainer of the worlds; 3. Most Gracious, Most Merciful; 4. Master of the Day of Judgment.

5. You do we worship, and Your aid we seek.

6. Show us the straight way, 7. The way of those on whom You have bestowed Your Grace, those whose (portion) is not wrath, and who go not astray.
