In the Name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.

Praise be to God, the Cherisher and Sustainer of the worlds,

The most Gracious, Most Merciful,

Master of the Day of Judgement.

Thee do we worship, and Thine aid we seek.

Show us the straight way.

The way of those on whom Thou hast bestowed Thy Grace, those whose (portion) is not wrath, and who go not astray.
