Tafsir Surah Al-Fatiha - Taken from the great exegetes of the Quran - Muslimlife
Surah Al-Fatiha is the largest chapter of the Quran. It has no equal, whether in the rest of the Book or in the Scriptures that preceded it. It is a light which was granted to the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) and which was not attributed to any other Prophet or Messenger before him.
Some Pious Predecessors claimed that when this surah was revealed, Satan let out a huge cry of lamentation. It holds a central place within daily prayer and therefore within the life of the Muslim.
