Those who earned Allah’s U anger are those who go astray and take others astray with them. These are much worst then the obstinate who are satisfied with their obstinacy. This is because, for those who went astray, there might come to them the people of righteousness who will help guide them back to the straight path. We pray that Allah U save and protect us from being with those who go astray and lead others astray too. Instead, we pray that Allah U make us be amongst those upon whom He bestowed His grace and guidance towards the straight path, Ameen.
After the end of this chapter (al-Fatihah), we recite ‘Ameen’ (آمين), a word that does not originate from the Arabic Language nor is it Latin in origin. Rather, it is the language of the Angles that means: “Oh Allah, please accept our prayers.” The angles support and ratify the prayers of the children of Adam. It is explained in one of the prophetic traditions, that the Messenger r said:
((إِذَا قَالَ أَحَدُكُمْ آمِين، وَقَالَتِ الْمَلَائِكَةُ فِي السَّمَاءِ آمِين، فَوَافَقَتْ إِحْدَاهُمَا الْأُخْرَى، غُفِرَ لَهُ مَا تَقَدَّمَ مِنْ ذَنْبِهِ))
“If anyone of you says: ‘Ameen and the angles in Heaven say ‘Ameen’, and the one coincides with the other, his previous sins will be forgiven.”
