The Mother of the Book and the Protecting Surahs

Surah Fatiha is the first chapter of the Quran and known as the “Umm ul Kitab”, the Mother of the Book. This Surah is recited about 32x a day by believers! This Surah was also never revealed to people before in any of the previous Revelations. Come find out why this Surah is so special and why the prayer itself is considered invalid if you do not recite it.  In addition, you will also learn the deep meanings behind the last 3 chapters of the Qur’an, insha’Allah: Surah Ikhlas, Falaq, and Nas, which are known as the “Protecting Surahs” which protect from all evils, both outward and inward. Dive deep and gain new powerful insights into these short but powerful Surahs, which most Muslims have memorized. Not only will you enhance your understanding, but you will completely transform your prayers for the rest of your life by becoming more connected to the All-Merciful through reflecting on the meanings of these Surahs each time that you pray.
