Al Fatiha The Opening

Bismil l-Allahi-r rahmani-r raheem – Alhamdul lil-lahi rab-bil 'alameen – Ar rahma nir-raheem Maliki yawmid-deen – Iyyaka na'budu wa iyyaka nasta'een – Ihdinas siratal mustaqeem – Siratal Lazeena an'amta 'alayhim – Ghai-ril maghdubi 'alayhim – Walad dal-leen. Ameen

Praise is only for Allah, Lord of the Universe – The most Kind, the most Merciful – The master of the Day of Judgement – You alone we worship and to you alone we pray for help – Show us the straight way – The way of those whom you have blessed – Who have not deserved your anger – Nor gone astray.

Al Asr Epoch

Wal-'asr – Innal-'insana lafee khusr – Illal-'ladheena amanoo wa amilos-'salihatay wa tawa sao bil haqqe wa tawa sao bis-sabr

By the declining day! – Man is surely in loss – Except those who believe and do good, and enjoin on each other truth, and enjoin on each other patience.

Al Ikhlas Sincerity

(1)• Qul hu Allahu Ahad, (2) Allah-us Samad, (3) lam yalid wa-lam yuulad, (4) wa lam ya-kul-lahu kufu-wan aahad

Say: He is Allah, the One and Only; – Allah is He on Whom all depend. – He begets not, nor is He begotten. – And there is none equal to Him.

Al Qadr The Power

Inna anzalnahu fee laylati alqadri – Wama adraka ma laylatu alqadri – Laylatu alqadri khayrun min alfi shahrin – Tanazzalu almalaikatu waalrroohu feeha biithni rabbihim min kulli amrin – Salamun hiya hatta matlaAAi alfajri

We have indeed revealed this (Qur'an) in the Night of Al-Qadr(Power) – And what will make you know what the night of Power is? – The Night of Power is better than a thousand months(83y 4months) – Therein descend the Angels and the Spirit(Gabriel) by Allah's permission with all decrees – All that night, there is peace(and goodness from Allah to His believing slaves) until the appearance of dawn.
