      Owner of The Payback - At the end of a show or performance or end of year assembly when people are given their certificates, medals and awards ... for their efforts and achievements.

      Such is the likeness of Judgement Day - Who is the Owner? Allah (SWT) - So the One Who Owns the process is the One Who Gives the Payback ... Even the ones whom we seek intercession are themselves "asking" on our behalf ... The giving is Given by Him Alone.
      The Prophet(SAW) said:
      "I am leaving you two things and you will never go astray as long as you cling to them -- they are the Book of Allah and my Sunnah." [Reported by Al- Haakim - Sahih].

      1- Day of Recompense is that day where no one owns anything that they used to own in the world. Therefore the 'Day of Recompense' for the creatures, meaning the Day Judgment. On that Day, Allah swt will reckon the creation for their deeds, evil for evil, good for good, except for those whom He pardons.

      2- Recompense for the creatures.
      3- All creation

      In this verse the type of speech here changes from the third person to direct speech by using the 'Kaf' in the statement 'Iyyaka (You)'. This is because after the servant praised and thanked Allah, he stands before Him, addressing Him directlly as stated in Quran Chapter 73 verse 9:

      'So take Him alone as Disposer of your affairs (wakil)'.

      The first part is a declaration of innocence from polytheism, while the second negates having any power of strength, displaying the recognition that all affairs are controlled by Allah alone. This meaning is reiterated in various instances in the Quran. For instance, Allah said:

      'So worship Him (O Muhammad) and put your trust in Him. And your Lord is not unaware of what you (people) do'. (11:123).

      and

      'Say: He is the Most Gracious (Allah), in Him we believe, and in Him we put our trust." (67:29).

      Iyyaka na'budu - This is formed from grammar as "Na'buduka" - the term Iyya allows the ka to be brought forward before the verb and hence makes the term specific - "It is ONLY you ... we worship, and so on"

      IhdinaSiraatalMustaqeem = This is the heart of the Surah

      In this verse the actual "supplication" is being made ... It teaches us the manner in which we should ask from Allah (SWT) ... First to invoke His Attributes in Praise, then to state your relationship to Him, then to make the plea ... and then to provide declaration your separation from those who are not like you want to be like.

      Ihdina is a fi'l al amr - It's an instruction in the grammatical sense ... Although we do not instruct Allah (SWT) - but we do plea - a plea is like an instruction, but with humility and the subordinate mood. Another reason for instructing is that it would be highly inappropriate to ask Allah like this "Oh, can you do this for me?" - it can be confused for being a statement of "possibility" - to avoid that and reflect the true level of conviction we ask from Allah (SWT) directly and without questioning His ability.

      There is a riwaya saying that Allah (SWT) grants the wisher his du'a to the level he believes Allah (SWT) is going to grant it ... So if our hearts question Allah (SWT) in our du'as this is a weakness and should be avoided.

      Peace psyah,

      The above is one of the best post ever I cam across. Its clean and immaculate to me. However I was thinking if a person (lets assume a non-muslim) read and think (as written at post#25) what will be the simplest answer.

      Isn't Ihdina means 'guide us' but starting from 'please' like a person requesting for something that could be easily taken away if not found. If we see in our every 'namaaz' we repeatedly read Surah Fatiha twice time where Ihdina automatically repeated twice but any other Surah just once. So here if we understand the meaning of wording in true sense then we are requesting, begging, the Ar-rahman and Ar-raheem to again and again (while offering namaaz) that guide us the right path so the true guidance shall not vanish away from us or we go astray.

      What differentiate Muslims from others that is 'Namaaz' and that is why 'Namaaz' is very importance.

      Peace LLK

      Ok ... 1) Only those will ask for guidance whoever:

      a) Has realised that God gives Guidance
      b) Humble enough to beg and ask for Guidance
      c) Realised that they need to be Guided
      d) Realised that they need to be kept on Guidance

      In a nutshell the ones who "ask for Guidance" are usually the ones who are Guided ... It is a self-reciprocating and inflating cycle ... The beginning of this cycle starts when we humble ourselves ... Now imagine we are reading these words as children then we are working on this pattern with out mouths without true understanding, but with the Mercy of Allah (SWT) - it is our belief that even uttering the words will start the ball rolling and gradually getting into better and better levels of guidance.

      2) The path that is straight - means straight up to Allah (SWT) in the straightest way, but this is often the hardest way ... it is littered with obstacles. The life of Sayyiduna Muhammad (SAW) is the example that we need to avoid the hurdles and pass the tests. Loving him is the key to following him (SAW).

      u-l-mustaqeem

      The root word of this phrase is "Qaama-Yaquumu" - We say in urdu "ussey qaim kar do" - To "establish" something ... In the Holy Qur'an - the term qama/qaim/etc is used for the salah ... (namaz) ... In the prayer there is a position called the "qiyam" ... which literally means "standing up" ... so we can gather a very symbolic meaning from these iterations of the word above ...

      That Sirat-ul-Mustaqeem is the bridge that takes us upwards ... it is the Straight Way ... It is the Way of Prayer ... That Prayer is the Way that is Straight .... That Prayer is the Bridge that takes us upwards ... uprightness means to be honest and good in almost every language ... We say in Urdu "Wo seedha saadha banda hai" meaning he is honest and simple ... did we even know that every worldly language shows that there is a link to the idea of "straightness" being good and honest?

      Think what does it means "he is bent" ???

      For number 1, if I remember correctly Quran refers to such people as ulul-albaab (end of surah aal imran)
      Khuda Karey K Meri Arz-e-Pak Par Utrey
      Wo Fasl-e-Gul Jisey Andesha-e-Zawal Na Ho
      Khuda Karey K Meray ek Bhi Hum Watan K Liye

      Sirata allatheena anAAamta AAalayhim ghayri almaghdoobi AAalayhim wala addalleen

      The path of those upon whom You have bestowed favor, not of those who have evoked [Your] anger or of those who are astray.

      ان لوگوں کے رستے جن پر تو اپنا فضل وکرم کرتا رہا نہ ان کے جن پر غصے ہوتا رہا اور نہ گمراہوں کے
      I observed:

      1- Path of those? [who are they?] whom HE bestowed favor?
      2- Who are those who invoke YOUR anger? who were astrayed?

      In previous verse we discussed about 'guidance'.

      These verses are covering the concept of action with intent ...

      An-Nawawi

      The straight path here is righteous action with noble intent ... What other combinations are there?

      Bad actions with bad intentions - x
      Good actions with bad intentions - y
      Bad actions with good intentions - z

      X and Z are possible, but Y is not possible. If the intent is bad, then the act cannot be good. For example riya, to pray in order to be seen to be good by people, this has been described as a shirk that is like a black insect on a black stone on a dark night ... So we are left with only 2 options.

      Sh. Ibn Kathir has described the people who earned Wrath as the Jews, and the people who went astray as the Christians. We can see many things the Jews did were to compromise the religion, trying to claim to be religious at the same time. On the other side no one could doubt the sincerity of the Christians, but their actions became too flamboyant and they stopped praying and started to eat forbidden foods and so on ...

      Law versus Love (Jews vs Christians)

      The straight path is taken by those who (love the law, and utilise the law, by loving others)

      Within Islamic sects we can see the groups that operate a way to please people and fail to observe Islamic fundaments, but at the same time we see other sects that are zealous with the law and have an constrained view to how it should be implemented and will give no regard to others.

      Tariqah and Shariah

      We hear there is no Tariqah without Shariah ... Ikhlas (sincerity) governs our initial motive to be on the Straight Path then we need to follow appropriately.

      Peace psyah,

      I think there must be a hidden logic beyond our understanding about the three letters (words) A ...L ... M ...

      > Book - The Holy Qur'an

      Agreed ... Although no one can say what they mean ... There are some interesting reflections about these letters ...

      Firstly they were uttered by Muhammad (SAW), when he was unlettered.

      Some have said that ALM when spoken produce sound from open mouth, A, middle mouth, L, and front of mouth, M.

      More later inshaAllah ..
      The Prophet(SAW) said:
      "I am leaving you two things and you will never go astray as long as you cling to them -- they are the Book of Allah and my Sunnah." [Reported by Al- Haakim - Sahih].
