Tafsir Surah Al-Fatihah
This surah is called Surah al-Fatihah either because of it being the opener of the AI-Qur’an as AI-Qur’an starts with this Surah or because of it being the opener of Salah, As-Salah also begins with the same surah. Fatihah is an Arabic word, which means the opener or beginner. Out of all the surahs of AI-Qur’an, Surah al-Fatihah was the first surah which was revealed as a complete surah whereas other surahs were revealed piecemeal. The book is a commentary on this very Surah.
