Yasir Qadhi – Ramadan 2014 – Tafsir Surah Al-Fatiha – 09

“And if you should count the favors of Allah, you could not enumerate them.” – [Surat An-Nahl]

In this episode of the Tafsir of Surat al-Fatihah, Shaykh Dr. Yasir Qadhi encourages us to delve on the following points:

  • The fact of the matter that our lives are consistently and completely dependent on the blessings of Allah SWT and the absolute need to comprehend this with utmost reverence and gratitude as opposed to attributing one’s achievements and bounties to the self. 
  • The acceptance of the fact that we will never be able to fully ever count all of the blessings of Allah upon us since they are innumerable.
  • The reason behind Allah choosing the phrase “Alhamdulillah” for Himself.
  • The meaning of “Rabb”.
