Al Fatihah – Opening chapter of the Holy Quran

In this podcast Dr Jahangiri explains the significance of Eid ul Adha in the light of the Al Fatihah and shows that Islamic devotions and rituals have both physical and spiritual aspects. Allah Commands us to keep both in mind when undertaking physical devotions. Performing physical devotions without achieving spiritual benefits is meaningless.

Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad explains that when in Surah Fatihah we ask for Divine favours this really is a supplication to allow us into the company of the prophets, truthful ones, martyrs and the righteous. This should allow us to emulate their qualities in our own character.
