‘Atâ’ narrates that there used to be a young man who used to go to Mother of the Believers
‘Â’ishah (may Allah be pleased with her) to ask her questions and she would narrate to him. One day, he came to her to ask her some questions. She said, “Son, have you put into practice what you hear from me yet?” He replied, “No mother, I have not.” So she said, “Son, why do you then seek to increase Allah’s proof against us and you?!”

Narrated ‘Ubada bin As-Samit: Allah’s Messenger (peace be upon him) said:
“Whoever does not recite Al-Fatiha in his prayer, his prayer is invalid.”
عبادہ بن صامت (رضی اللہ عنہ) روایت کرتے ہیں کہ نبی صلی اللہ علیہ وآلہ وسلم نے فرمایا اس شخص کی نماز نہیں ہوتی جو سورت فاتحہ نہ پڑھے۔
[Sahih Al-Bukhari, Book of Adhan (Call to Prayer), Hadith: 756]
Chapter: Recitation of the Qur’an (Surat Al-Fatiha) is compulsory for the Imam and the followers, at the home and on journey, in all As-Salat (the prayers) whether the recitation is done silently or aloud.
Narrated Mustawrid رضي الله عنه: Allaah’s Apostle صلى الله عليه وسلم said:
❝By Allaah, this world (is so insignificant in comparison) to the Hereafter that if one of you should dip his finger in the ocean (and pull it out) and then he should see how much water sticks to it.❞
[Saheeh Muslim (6843)]
