We all have problems - big or small - whether they be personal, family, social, national or global in nature. Sometimes they are simple and easily solvable and at other times they are complex and seems unsolvable. However wouldn't it be wonderful to know a way to solve any problem - simple or complex - with 100% confidence? There is actually a way and it is through Prayer (Salah). The Qur'an states <<Seek help through Patience and Prayer>> [Qur'an 2:45]. This is the reason why whenever the Prophet (SAW) had difficulty he would turn to Allah through Prayer.
What is Prayer? Prayer has many aspects to it but the most fundamental part of the Prayer is Surah Al-Fatiha. In fact the Prophet (SAW) referred to Al-Fatiha as The Prayer in a Hadith (read the full hadith here) emphasizing the importance of it in the Prayer. So if anyone wishes to access divine solutions through Prayer they should first examine their level of understanding of Al-Fatiha because that is the essence of Prayer. Sadly many Muslims have no understanding of Al-Fatiha except its basic translated meaning. So no wonder that our Prayer is lifeless and devoid of its potential.
But it is never too late. A unique one-day seminar titled Exploring The Pearls of The Qur'an is coming up this Saturday which explores the most often recited surahs in the Prayer - Al-Fatiha and The Last Ten Surahs. This is your best and perhaps the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to elevate your Prayer to heights that you have never seen before. So why wait, register now for the last few places available to begin your journey of accessing divine blessing, aid and solutions through Al-Fatiha - The Prayer.

"Shaykh Mohammad Akram Nadwi is a great asset to the Muslims in the UK and his 57 volume work on al-Muhaddithaat (The Women Scholars of Islam) is no doubt going to be a lasting legacy of this great man. I had the blessed opportunity of spending a day with him recently; he is one of those few individuals who in a short period of time can change your entire thinking. May Allah bless the brothers and sisters in Cambridge and those in Oxford who organise and help the Shaykh in his works." - Nasar Ishfaq, Manchester
