Surat al Fatihah is the Opening of the Quran and known as the Mother of the Quran. This Surah which was revealed in the Makkah (Period of revelation) was not the first of revelation. So why did Allah choose for this to be the Opening Surah of the Quran and why is it so Significant?

Allah begins this verse because the key to the heart. The Most significant lesson that we will derive from this Surat comes from the first Ayah:

All Praise is due to Allah, The Lord of the Worlds.

Allah found it only befitting that this Book, the final revelation should begin with acknowledging the Lord of the worlds, showing Him eternal gratitude. In this is a lesson for the happiness of all humans.

Modern scientists are raving about the benefits of gratitude and how it gives you a dopamine hit, which causes you to feel happy. Sounds great and it’s actually very interesting that you experience this chemical reaction when you’re grateful. However, Allah the Most High is the one that created us and pointed us to gratitude long before any Neuroscientist came along with this explanation of happiness.

Surah Al Fatihah is so important for many reasons, but most of all its practical benefits have a direct effect on the happiness of any and every person. Gratitude is a key that opens up the heart to true happiness.
