Surah al-Fatiha was revealed in Makkah. The most glorified of Surahs, Surah al-Fatiha incorporates the sum and substance of the whole Quran. It was revealed in the nascent years and is the first complete Surah revealed to our Blessed Prophet sallallahu alaihi wa sallam. Though many ayahs were revealed before Surah al-Fatiha, none came as complete surahs. Surah al-Fatiha has many names. Imam Suyuøi rahmatuallah alaih mentioned 25 names in al-Itqan some of which are al-Fatiha, Umm al-Quran, Umm al-Kitab, al-Sabi al-Mathani.
