Interpretation: In the name of God, Whose mercy is comprehensive, Whose mercy is specific. Thankful praise belongs to God, the Lord of the universe, the comprehensively merciful, the specifically merciful, the possessor of the day of reward. You we worship and You we ask for help. Guide us [to, on] the straight road, the road of those on whom You have bestowed Your blessings—not those who bear Your anger, nor those who stray.
