Holy Quran Verses from Pickthall and Yusufali's Translation

Surah Faatihah: The Opening

In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Yusufali:    Praise be to God, the Cherisher and Sustainer of the world;
Pickthall:   Praise be to Allah, Lord of the Worlds,
Yusufali:    Most Gracious, Most Merciful;
Pickthall:   The Beneficent, the Merciful.
Yusufali:    Master of the Day of Judgment.
Pickthall:   Master of the Day of Judgment,
Yusufali:    Thee do we worship, and Thine aid we seek.
Pickthall:   Thee (alone) we worship; Thee (alone) we ask for help.
Yusufali:    Show us the straight way,
Pickthall:   Show us the straight path,
Yusufali:    The way of those on whom Thou hast bestowed Thy Grace,
Pickthall:   The path of those whom Thou hast favoured;
Yusufali:    those whose (portion) is not wrath, and who go not astray.
Pickthall:   Not the (path) of those who earn Thine anger nor of those who go astray.


Let us pray (Sura 20, Ayat 114) 'Ya Rabbi Zidni Ilma!' ('O Lord! Increase me in knowledge.') and seek spiritual help (ta'yid) to understand our great faith.
