Opening the Heart

We begin in the Name of God,
Everlasting Mercy, Infinite Compassion.

Praise be to God, Loving Lord of all the worlds.
Everlasting Mercy, Infinite Compassion.
Eternal Strength of every living being,
Whose Majestic Power embraces us on the day of the great return.

Only You do we adore, and to You alone do we cry for help.
Guide us, O God, on the path of Perfect Harmony,
the path of those whom You have blessed
with the gifts of Peace, Joy, Serenity, and Delight,
the path of those who have not been brought down by anger,
the path of those who have not been lost along the way.

(a new English translation of the Fatiha, translated by Bilal Hyde)
