About this episode

Shaykh Dr. Yasir Qadhi unravels the secret to Salah in this episode of the Tafsir of Surat al-Fatihah where he acquaints us in detail with the Hadith Qudsi of the conversation between Allah SWT and the one in prayer. The Hadith is as follows:

Abu Hurayrah RA narrated that the Prophet ﷺ said that Allah SWT said: "I have divided the prayer between Myself and My servant into two halves, and My servant shall have what he has asked for."

Hence, we can extrapolate a few important details from the above:

  • Salah (prayer) is a personal conversation between the slave and his Master between the worshipper and the Lord of the Heavens and the earth.
  • The absolute magnificence of the fact that Allah SWT Himself is responding to us when we recite Surat al-Fatihah in our Salah and the need for us to be in full realisation and awareness of it the next time we perform Salah.
