Key to al-Fatihah analyses basic concepts contained in the keywords of the opening chapter of the Glorious Qur'an. The dominant vocabulary in the modern world is that of the secular-Christian and Western ideology and its institutions. In order to appreciate the message of the Qur'an understanding the concepts which each Qur'anic term conveys is essential. Unless these concepts are fully understood one cannot benefit and be inspired by the Divine Book of Guidance. Brief notes on the keywords will help to clarify and provide understanding about the dynamic ideas portrayed in the Majestic Qur'an.
