The Messenger of Allah (sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) said, “The uttering of the words: “Subhan-Allah (Allah is free from imperfection), Al-hamdu lillah (all praise is due to Allah), La ilaha illallah (there is no true god except Allah) and Allahu Akbar (Allah is the Greatest)’ is dearer to me than anything over which the sun rises.”
Arabic/English book reference: Book 16, Hadith 1409
There is a Surah that we read 17 times a day at least in which we ask Allah amongst other things for something very powerful, something more valuable than anything in this dunya: guidance. In every rak’ah of every prayer we recite Surah Fatihah and in one of these ayahs we beg Allah: “Guide us to the straight path”. [1:5]
In the ayah before this, we ask Allah for help and right after, the first thing we beg Allah for is guidance- not forgiveness, not rizq or anything else but rather we ask for guidance because if a person has that, everything else is set right and taken care of. How many people’s lives have changed, flipped completely because they asked and begged sincerely for guidance from Allah? It’s truly mind blowing!
One really interesting thing about this ayah is that the word used for “guide” is plural, indicating that instead of Allah commanding us to say “guide me”, we are saying “guide US” to a path that is straight. This really shows us the importance of living as a Muslim community, as part of an Ummah, as “one-body”. Seventeen times a day we ask not just ourselves but ALL of us to be guided, collectively. It’s so amazing that we beg Allah for this over and over again, through out our entire life, in every prayer, in every rak’ah.
In his tafseer over Surah Fatihah, Nouman Ali Khan explains how “it’s as if we ask Allah for guidance at Fajr, in case we get misguided by noon, we ask Allah for guidance at Dhuhr in case we forget by the afternoon, and we do so again at Asr time and so on”. This is because guidance is from Allah and whoever Allah guides, there is nothing and no one that can misguide them.
What we are asking Allah to guide us to is also very beautiful and powerful. We’re not just asking Allah to guide us to the straight path, but if you read the tafseer, it indicates that based on the words used, we ask Allah to guide us to a path that is straight, without short cuts, without deviations, a wide path that can accommodate many people straight to Him. This path, this spiritual journey is not an easy one, this path is like a ladder that is heading upwards- the higher up you go, the stronger the effect of gravity, the more difficult it is to fight the dunya and its illusions and temptations.
That’s what we are asking Allah to be guided to every time we read Surah Fatihah. Next time we read this in our salah, let’s put our heart into this du’a that we ask Allah, may Allah guide us all towards a path that is heading up to Him, closer and closer to Allah inshAllah!
