A Prayer for Those Who Perished on September 11, 2001

We condemn all violence, and offer this prayer for those who perished in the September 11 attack on the World Trade Center, and the Pentagon:

In the name of Allah (God), Most Gracious, Most Merciful.

Praise be to Allah, the Cherisher and Sustainer of the worlds;

Most Gracious, Most Merciful;

Master of the Day of Judgment.

Thee do we worship, and Thine aid we seek.

Show us the straight way,

The way of those on whom Thou hast bestowed Thy Grace, those whose (portion) is not wrath, and who go not astray.

This prayer, the Opening Chapter of The Quran, Al-Fatiha, is recited by Muslims during daily prayers, and at other occasions such as death.
