Suhbah after Fajr

(Video dated 21 July)

A`oodhu billahi min ash-Shaytaani 'r-rajeem. Bismillahi 'r-Rahmaani 'r-Raheem.

Nawaytu 'l-arba`een, nawaytu 'l-`itikaaf, nawaytu 'l-khalwah, nawaytu 'l-`uzlah,

nawaytu 'r-riyaadah, nawaytu 's-sulook, nawayna ‘s-siyaam lillahi ta`alaa fee haadha 'l-masjid.

أَطِيعُواْ اللّهَ وَأَطِيعُواْ الرَّسُولَ وَأُوْلِي الأَمْرِ مِنكُمْ

Atee`oollaha wa atee`oo 'r-Rasoola wa ooli 'l-amri minkum.

Obey Allah, obey the Prophet, and obey those in authority among you. (Surat an-Nisa, 4:59)

The Prophet (s) said:

اذا اراد الله بعبد خير فقهه فى الدين

Idhaa araada’Llaahu bi `abdin khayran faqqahahu fi ’d-deen.

If Allah wants good for His servant, He makes him understand His religion very well.

The Prophet (s) said, “If Allah wants good for His servant, He makes him to understand the religion,”

and to understand the religion is to understand fiqh, which are different understandings of hadith of the Prophet (s) and different verses of the Holy Qur'an. And it has been explained that like a chestnut, there is the shell and there is the fruit inside; the shell protects the fruit and if there is no shell the fruit will disappear or go bad because there is no shell to protect it. The shell is necessary and the fruit is necessary. Fiqh is the shell and the fruit is the understanding of the spiritual aspect of the hadith of the Prophet (s).

If some people say, “We only want to learn fiqh,” which is very good, but it is not enough. You might learn fiqh and become a scholar, but it is not going to change you or your characters; there might be small changes, but the Moral Excellence, if it was not important, then why did the the Prophet (s) teach the Sahaabah (r) about Tazkiyyatu ‘n-Nafs, Purification of the Self? He would have kept it, when Jibreel (a) asked about imaan, he would have kept it at Five Pillars, which is fiqh; the Five Pillars are fiqh. So the fiqh is for the structure of the building, it is the foundation of the building on which you build, and Imaan is necessary because it is the `Aqeedah. Ihsaan is the Level of Purification, to get rid of all bad characters from us, then that jewel inside us will appear.

That light that Allah (swt) has put in us, as we mentioned in the previous session, there are three kinds of hearts. The best kind is the heart of a person who does not allow gossips and whispers of Shaytan inside it; that one is the perfect heart. The others, as we mentioned, that one is already dark, there is zhulmah in it, there is no benefit from it and Shaytan doesn’t bother to enter it as it is already dark. The second heart is the one where one day you are on imaan and another day you are on the other side. That is the heart that Shaytan can enter, and he goes in and tries to fight you. The third is the heart that Shaytan cannot enter, as it is protected. By Whom is it protected? By Allah (swt), because you have achieved the understandings from the knowledge of Islam, of Shari`ah, of fiqh, so the shell begins to get ripe and you open it to get the fruit inside it.

What is the fruit of the heart? This light that we put on, we can see with it and if you put it off, you see nothing. The heart can see, it can understand and talk, and it can relate. It can teach, because of what? From what Allah (swt) put in the heart of that person. And what did He put? It is mentioned by Wahb ibn Munabbih (r):

لست أسكن البيوت ولا تسعني , وأي شيء يسعني وأي بيت يسعني والسموات حشو كرسي ولكن أنا في قلب الوادع التارك لكل شيء سواي

Lastu askunu ‘l-buyuoota wa laa tas`anee wa ayyu shayyin yasa`unee wa ayyu baytin yasa`unee wa ayyu bayti yasa`unee wa ‘s-samaawati hashwi kursee. wa laakin anaa fee qalbi ‘l-waadi` at-taarak li kulla shay’in sawaa.

I do not dwell in houses nor can they contain me; and what thing can contain Me and what house can contain Me, and the skies are the padding of My Kursi. But I am in the heart of the waadi`, the one who abandons everything besides Me.

“Lastu askunu ‘l-buyuoota, I don’t inhabit the houses,” the houses here refers to the heart, “I don’t inhabit the hearts that cannot contain Me, that cannot fit Me. Wa ayyu shay’in yasa`uni wa ‘s-samaawati hashwi kursee? How is it possible that anything can be spacious to accept Me? As nothing can fit Me, because the Heavens and Earth are hashwi kursee, like the stuffing of My Chair, wa see`oo kursee hu ‘s-samaawati wa ‘l-ardh, where the Chair has encompassed and contains everything in the universe.” That Chair is bigger, like when you throw a ring in a desert. This whole universe, together with Heavens can be thrown in the Chair and it will disappear and Allah’s Chair is bigger than that. How then can, “The heart contain Me”? Open your eyes and open your mind! And He said, “I am in the heart of that one who left everything for Me, he left all his desires, everything he owns, he left it for Me. That is the one whose heart will fit Me.” This is the meaning of the other saying:

ما وسعني أرضي ولا سمائي ولكن وسعني قلب عبدي المؤمن

Maa wasi`anee ardee wa laa samaa'ee wa laakin wasi`anee qalbi `abdee al-mu'min.

Neither My Heavens nor My Earth contain Me, but the heart of My believing servant contains Me.

(Hadith Qudsi, Al-Ihya of Imam al-Ghazali)

“The heart of My servant who is learning fiqh, learning Shari`ah and learning Tazkiyyatu ‘n-Nafs, Purification of the Self, that one has a place for My Light in his heart.” Allah does not send His Light to a place that is dirty.

That is why we mentioned the hadith of Al-Haris in the previous session, regarding Sayyidina Yahya (a) and the Five Orders that Allah (swt) gave him. Allah (swt) ordered Sayyidina Yahya (a) to mention five words, first: an ta`abud Allah, to worship Allah, no shirk. Second as-salaat, we explained that. Now as-siyaam, so anyone who is doing these five obligations, tawheed, ash-shahadu an laa ilaaha ill-Allah wa ashadu anna Muhammada ’r-Rasoolullah, wa iqaamu salaati wa eetaa’u zakaati wa sawmu ramadaan wa hajju ’l-bayt, to those people the Light of Allah (swt), from His Light He throws in their hearts because their hearts become clean. That’s why He said, “In the heart comes everything, goes everything,” and that’s why Prophet (s) said:

الا وان في الجسد مضغة اذا صلحت صلح الجسد كله، واذا فسدت فسد الجسد كله، الا وهي القلب‏.

Alaa inna fi’l-jasadi mudghata idha saluhat saluh al-jasad kullihi wa idhaa fasudat fasad al-jasad kullahu. alaa wa hiya al-qalb.

In the body there is a small piece of flesh; if that piece of flesh is rectified then the whole body will be rectified and if it becomes corrupt then the whole body will become corrupt, and truly that is the heart. (Bukhari and Muslim)

The heart is the main important organ in the body, and Allah (swt) made it so that through it the blood has to come to the heart to be cleaned, and then be pumped away. So that circulation of the blood, the pump of the blood of the body is the heart, which is pumping that blood to all of the body. So if it is correct...because it can pump anything bad, and if you are protecting the heart with fiqh and Shari`ah then it will be pumping in a situation that brings the Light of Allah inside and throws Shaytan outside.

And that’s what we need and Prophet (s) has mentioned in many ahadeeth, that we will mention a little bit later, in order to make people feel that...people today say, “Oh! We are fasting and the smell of our mouth is bad.” Some people by mistake brush their teeth when they wake up, although they are fasting, which is not allowed; it is completely prohibited to brush your teeth, because you are erasing the smell of musk from your body. The Prophet (s) mentioned, we will mention the hadith later, that the saliva or the smell of the mouth of a fasting person is better than the smell of this whole dunya and universe. Prophet (s) described it as “the musk of Heavens.”

Today in dunya they look for the musk, which is very expensive, the real musk, and Allah (swt) is saying the saliva of a mu’min who is fasting is more important and nicer to Allah (swt) than that. To the saliva of the mu’min Allah gives the smell of musk; that is what Allah (swt) is rewarding His servant with for their fasting. It means when your mouth--because through the mouth comes everything, through the tongue comes everything, all kinds of backbiting and fitna, confusions, fightings comes through the mouth--so when you are fasting you are preventing all this, you are cutting it and not letting Shaytan play with you through these bad characters. So Allah described the person who is fasting, “His smell of the mouth is better than the smell of the musk,” because in the time of the Prophet (s) the best perfume was musk and so Allah is giving that as an example as the best smell of a fasting person. And that fasting musk is not the musk of dunya, but the musk of Akhirah. And about the musk of Akhirah it is mentioned that if Allah allowed one Houri to open her finger and put it in dunya, the smell of the musk of one fingertip will make everyone faint from that beautiful smell. That is in the mouth of a fasting person!

What did the Prophet (s) say? He mentioned in many places that fasting is so important to Allah (swt). How it came, fasting, from the beginning?

قَالَتْ كَانَ يَوْمُ عَاشُورَاءَ تَصُومُهُ قُرَيْشٌ فِي الْجَاهِلِيَّةِ، وَكَانَ النَّبِيُّ صلى الله عليه وسلم يَصُومُهُ، فَلَمَّا قَدِمَ الْمَدِينَةَ صَامَهُ وَأَمَرَ بِصِيَامِهِ، فَلَمَّا نَزَلَ رَمَضَانُ كَانَ رَمَضَانُ الْفَرِيضَةَ، وَتُرِكَ عَاشُورَاءُ، فَكَانَ مَنْ شَاءَ صَامَهُ، وَمَنْ شَاءَ لَمْ يَصُمْهُ‏.‏

`An `Ayesha (r) qaalat kaana yawmu `aashooraa tasoomuhu qurayshun fi ‘l-jaahiliyyati wa kaana an-nabiyyu (s) yasoomuhu falammaa qadima ‘l-madeenata saamahu wa amara bi-siyaamihi falammaa nazala ramadaanu kaana ramadaanu ‘l-fareedah. wa turika `aashooraa fa-kaana man shaa’ saamahu wa man shaa’ lam yasumhu.

During the pre-lslamic Period of Ignorance, the Quraysh used to observe fasting on the day of `Ashura and the Prophet (s) himself used to observe fasting on it, too, but when he came to Madinah, he fasted on that day and ordered the Muslims to fast on it. When (the order of compulsory fasting in) Ramadan was revealed, fasting in Ramadan became an obligation and fasting on `Ashura was given up and whoever wished to fast (on it) did so, and whoever did not wish to fast on it did not fast. (Bukhari)

The people of Quraysh in Mecca used to fast only the day of `Ashura in Jaahiliyya, and then Prophet (s) ordered the Muslims to fast the day of `Ashura. After that, when Allah (swt) ordered Ramadan, hattaa foorida Ramadan faqaala rasoolillah ... When Allah ordered fasting for Ramadan, Prophet (s) said, “You are free to fast `Ashura or not to fast it, it’s up to you, but you have to now fast thirty days.” This was the beginning of fasting in the time of the Prophet (s).

Allah (swt) said, faman shahida minkum ash-shahr fal-yasum, “Anyone see the moon let him fast for Ramadan,” fa rasoolillahi annahu qaal--and all these are ahadeeth Bukhari or muttafaqan `alayh--anna rasoolu (s) qaal:

إذا دخل رمضان فتحت أبواب الجنة وغلقت أبواب النار وسلسلت الشياطين

Idhaa dakhala ramadaan futihat abwaab al-jannah wa ghuliqat abwaab an-naar wa sulsilati ’sh-shayaateen.

When Ramadan begins, the doors of Paradise are opened and the doors of Hell are closed and the shayateen are tied with chains. (Bukhari and Muslim)

“When Ramadan enters, the doors of Heavens will open and the doors of Hellfire will close.” May Allah (swt) make all our days Ramadan because, “the one who is fasting” means the doors of Jahannam are closed for him and the doors of Heavens are opened for him, and the shayaateen cannot reach him even though they whisper. When you are fasting you still get whispering in your ears when you are praying. As soon as you say, “Allahu Akbar,” all different things come from outside to your ears from Shaytan, but in Ramadan, even though they come they are chained and cannot harm you and Allah protects you from that whisper.

«كل عمل ابن آدم يضاعف الحسنة عشرة أمثالها إلى سبعمائة ضعف. قال الله عز وجل: إلا الصوم، فإنه لي وأنا أجزي به. يدع شهوته وطعامه من أجلي. للصائم فرحتان: فرحة عند فطره، وفرحة عند لقاء ربه. ولخلوف فيه أطيب عند الله من ريح المسك» رواه مسلم

Kullu `amali ibni Aadam yuda`fu ’l-hasanatu bi `ashri amthaaluhaa, ilaa sab`a miata da`f. Qaala ’Llaahu ta`ala: illa as-sawma fa innahu lee wa anaa ajzee bih. yada`a shahwatahu wa ta`amahu wa sharaabahu min ajlee. Li ’s-saaim farhataan: farhatan `inda fitratihi wa farhatan `inda liqaai rabbih. Wa la-khuloof feehi atyabu `inda ’Llah min reeha ’l-misk.

It is narrated by Imam Muslim from Abi Hurayrah (r), the Prophet (s) said that Allah (swt) said:

All the deeds of the Children of Adam are multiplied so that there are ten rewards for each good deed increasing up to 700, and Allah said, “Except fasting, for it is done (purely) for Me and I reward for it. He gives up his food and his drink and his sexual desire for My Sake. There are two occasions of joy for one who fasts: a joy when he breaks it and a joy when he meets his Lord. And the breath (of an observer of fast) is sweeter to Allah than the fragrance of musk.” (Muslim)

“Every `amal the Children of Adam do, Allah will increase, multiply it by ten until 700 times,” Qaala ’Llaahu ta`ala: illa as-sawma, He said, “Except fasting. I am allowing everything, I am multiplying your `amal even 700 times, I reward you even 700 times more, but not fasting. Fasting is for Me, everything else is for you. I’m giving you what you like, but Ramadan fasting is for Me,” fa innahu lee wa anaa ajzee bih, “It is for Me and I reward for it.” There He rewards 700 times, but in Ramadan it’s not limited and if you limit it, you are making a sin. Yada`a shahwatahu wa ta`aamahu wa sharaabahu min ajlee, “He leaves his food and his drink for My sake,” Li ’s-saaim farhataan, “For someone who is fasting he has two happinesses: one happiness, `indaa fitri when he breaks fast.” What kind of happiness? When you break fast you will be happy? Some people might not be happy when they break fast. What is the happiness that Allah (swt) is mentioning? “O mu’mins, Muslims, I am giving you happiness in Akhirah! I will open for you what is not opened, I will open for you My Treasures so take what you want!”

Li ’s-saaim farhataan farhatan `inda fitratihi, he has two happinesses: one when he breaks his fast, which means, “What I will reward him as soon as he kept his fasting until Maghrib and break the fast there, for that time that is obligation for him to fast, I am going to reward him a reward that makes him happy in dunya and Akhirah.” Allahu Akbar! And He compared the happiness when he breaks fast like the happiness when he will meet with Allah (swt) where He said, “The other happiness: wa farhatan `inda liqaai rabbihi, when he will meet with his Lord.” Allahu Akbar! It means, the one who is fasting Ramadan is going to meet with his Lord, means on every time you break fast, Allah gives you happiness like the happiness when you are going to meet Him in Akhirah! And all this He gave a description of what you think to yourself that you feel bad about it and you don’t like that character and you don’t like that way, but Allah likes it. You try to perfume yourself with all kinds of perfumes, but Allah doesn’t like that, He likes the smell of your mouth, He likes the smell of the one who is fasting. That is why He said, wa la-khuloof feehi atyabu `inda ’Llah min reeha ’l-misk, “The smell of the mouth or the saliva of the mouth is more precious to Allah (swt) than the smell of heavenly musk,” for that one who is fasting.

So imagine how much Allah is giving people who are fasting! Every day that you fast, you are getting a happiness like the happiness when you meet Allah (swt), and you are getting a smell that angels will run for it to carry your `amal to Allah (swt)! If you are fasting, whatever you did throughout the day the angels will come and approach you, because you have a good smell. It is like having a nice perfume and everyone says, “Put for me a little bit to smell nice.” Why? To smell nice. Today they put under their arms to smell nice. So everyone now today is so concerned about their makeup, men or women. Men have a special makeup now, we never saw that before, and women have special makeup a hundred times more, in order to smell nice.

So, don’t brush your teeth in the morning after suhoor; suhoor is the last moment to brush your teeth and finish. I am seeing people waking up and brushing their teeth, if something goes inside what you do, you lose your fast? In the time of the Prophet (s) they were using miswaak, but Allah (swt) is saying, “No, leave it, I like it, to Me it is better than the smell of musk and you will have happiness, don’t do it.”

The Prophet (s) said:

عَنْ عَمْرِو بْنِ عَبَسَةَ قَالَ سَمِعْتُ رَسُولَ اللهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم يَقُولُ مَنْ صَامَ يَوْمًا فِي سَبِيلِ اللهِ بَاعَدَهُ اللَّهُ مِنَ النَّارِ سَبْعِينَ خَرِيفًا

Man saama yawmun fee sabeelillahi ba`ada ’Llaahu`azza wa jalla min an-naari sab`eena khareefaa.

Whoever fasts one day in the cause of Allah, Allah the Mighty and Sublime will separate him from the fire by (a distance of) seventy autumns. (Sunan an-Nasaa'ee )

Anyone who fasts one day for Allah other than Ramadan, he did it for Allah’s sake, Allah will take his face away from punishment that day, when you fast one day.

من صام رمضان إيمانا واحتسابا غفر له ما تقدم من ذنبه

Man saama ramadaana imaanan w ’ahtisaaban ghufira lahu maa taqaddama min dhanbih.

Whoever fasts during Ramadan with faith and seeking his reward (from Allah), all his past sins will be forgiven. (Bukhari and Muslim)

If someone fasts Ramadan with faith and with good characters, with good behavior, Allah will forgive all the sins that were before from childhood up to the present day. Like today is the tenth, then at the end of this Ramadan Allah will forgive all your sins, as Prophet (s) mentioned in that hadith that you will be forgiven every sin you committed.

الصوم لي وانا اُجزي به

As-sawmu lee wa anaa ajzee beeh.

Fasting is for Me and I will reward it. (Hadith Qudsi)

Allah will reward and will forgive all your sins and this is important for everyone to know. That is why people say, “Why is fiqh important?” Wa `an Ayesha (a) qaalat kaana Rasoolullah (s) yudriku ‘l-fajr wa huwa junoob min ahlihi thumma yaghtasilu wa yasoom, Sayyida `Ayesha, alayha ridhwaan, said, “Sometimes the Prophet (s)...” and this is for us, to teach us by showing us different ways, that “Fajr came, the adhaan was called and he needed a shower, because he slept with his wife, so he used to take shower and then fast.”

وعن عائشة رضي الله عنها قالت‏:‏ كان رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم يدركه الفجر وهو جنب من أهله ثم يغتسل ويصوم ‏(‏‏(‏متفق عليه‏)‏‏)‏

Wa `an Ayesha (r) qaalat kaana Rasoolullah (s) yudriku ‘l-fajr wa huwa junubun min ahlihi thumma yaghtasilu wa yasoom.

`Ayesha (r) reported that the Messenger of Allah (s) woke up at Fajr time in a state of sexual impurity from relations with his wife, so he took a bath before dawn and observed fasting. (Bukhari and Muslim)

So it means here, that gives us an understanding that you can sleep at night with your wife and do as normal human beings and delay the ghusl until Fajr, because Fajr would come and Prophet (s), yudriku ‘l-fajr wa huwa junub, would still need a shower. Some people might rush quickly when they are at the early time of sleeping to take a shower, but you are allowed to keep until Fajr time; however, it is better to take a shower before.

Anas ibn Malik (r) related that the Prophet (s) said:

تَسَحَّرُوا فَإِنَّ فِي السَّحُورِ بَرَكَةً ‏"‏

Tasahharoo fa inna fi ‘s-suhoori barakah

Eat sahoor, for in sahoor there is blessing. (Bukhari and Muslim)

Prophet (s) said, “Eat suhoor,” don’t say, “I don’t need it, it’s okay I will drink water,” no. He said, “Eat as there is barakah in suhoor.” Allah (swt) will open for you what you might not know, He might open treasures for you. That means, he wants us to make suhoor, as suhoor is important for us. The Prophet (s) described the one fasting as one holding a surrah, a sheet or towel that he wraps and has something in it. He is describing the smell of the fasting person, the smell of his mouth is like a sheet of cloth and inside is a piece of musk. He is hiding it and doesn't open it, but a nice smell is coming out from it. It is giving vapor, but you don’t see it as it is inside a piece of cloth. It is hidden, because of its high value. What do you do with anything whose value is high? You hide it.

So Allah (swt) wants to show His servants through the hadith of Prophet (s) that a smell of a fasting person is so dear to Allah (swt) that Prophet (s) is describing it as a piece of perfume, a musk that is put into a sheet and wrapped. Similarly, the smell of our mouth is hidden in our mouth, it doesn’t come out, but people will smell that scent of musk. Allah will turn that smell of the mouth, that saliva and all the fluid in your body into the smell of musk. Then at that time, you will be welcomed for heavenly enlightenment and since your smell is good, angels can approach you and dress you with the Dresses of Knowledge, as for Sayyidina Khidr (a), where Allah (swt) said:

وَعَلَّمْنَاهُ مِن لَّدُنَّا عِلْمًا

Wa `allamnaahu min ladunna `ilma.

And We had taught him knowledge from Our Own Presence. (Surat al-Kahf, 18:65)

“We taught him from a Heavenly Knowledge,” because he was always in a good smell before his Lord, and this is the type of people who are fasting. It is hidden from people, because when you pray, everyone can see, but if you don’t tell no one knows that you are fasting, so it is a hidden obligation that Allah (swt) ordered us for that hidden thing to be known.

Allah (swt) said:

كنت كنزا مخفياً فأحببت أن أعرف فخلقت الخلق

Kuntu kanzan makhfiyyan fa ahbabtuhu an u`rafa fa khalaqtu ‘l-khalq.

I was a Hidden Treasure (and) I wanted to be known, so I created Creation. (Hadith Qudsi)

“I was a Hidden Treasure and I wanted to be known, so I created Creation.” Here, fasting is a hidden treasure from that divine inheritance, tajalli of the Manifestation on us. That is why Allah said, as-sawmu lee, “Fasting is for Me.” That hidden thing is not known; Allah alone knows if that person is fasting or not and He will reward that person. “He left his food and drink for Me and if he talks, he doesn’t says anything to make people upset.” Fa sawmahu sawm al-jawaarih, “Fasting is the fasting of limbs,” all parts of a human body must be fasting, not only from eating and drinking, but it must be a real fasting. And he said:

رب صائم حظه من صيامه الجوع والعطش

Rubba saaimin hazhahu min siyaamihi ‘l-joo`i wa ‘l-`atash.

Perhaps a person fasting will receive nothing from his fasting except hunger and thirst.

(Ibn Majah, Ahmad)

It may be that the fasting person only gets hunger and thirst, because he is not doing what Allah (swt) wants him to do from dealing with bad manners and listening to Shaytan.

فَوَالَّذِي نَفْسُ مُحَمَّدٍ بِيَدِهِ لَخِلْفَةُ فَمِ الصَّائِمِ أَطْيَبُ عِنْدَ اللَّهِ مِنْ رِيحِ الْمِسْكِ

W ‘alladhee nafsu Muhammadin bi yadihi la-khilfatu fami ‘s-saaimi atyabu `inda’Llaahi min reeha ‘l-misk.

By Allah in Whose Hand is the life of Muhammad, the breath of the observer of fast is sweeter to Allah than the fragrance of musk. (Muslim)

The Prophet (s) is giving an oath. W ‘alladhee nafsu Muhammadin bi yadihi, “The One that has the soul of Muhammad in His Hand,” la-khilfatu fami ‘s-saaimi atyabu `inda’Llaahi min reeha ‘l-misk, “The breath of the observer of fast is sweeter to Allah than the fragrance of musk.” Meaning to Allah that fasting person is so important. May Allah make us to fast as much as we can and to be in good manners and moral excellence! We will continue next time.

Wa min Allahi 't-tawfeeq, bi hurmati 'l-Fatihah.

Allah gives us lots of things that we don't know. He blesses with what He likes us to be. First of all, He made us Muslims. It is not because you converted and became Muslim, it is Allah’s Generosity that He reminded you, “You are Muslim, come back,” and there are many still coming back up to the Day of Judgment. Those who are coming as converts are better than those who are raised Muslim as their sins have been erased of whatever they have done before Islam, but Muslims will be questioned for every sin they have done in their life!

May Allah (swt) forgive us for the barakah, the sake of Sayyidina Muhammad (s).

Wa min Allahi 't-tawfeeq, bi hurmati 'l-Fatihah.
