The following is a translation of Dr Fadhel al Samarrai’s Tafseer of Surah Fatiha. Sub-headings have been added for ease of reading. This tafseer gives an insight in to the miraculous nature of the Qur’anic Arabic. Is it recited: مالِكِ يَومِ الدّينِ or ملِكِ يَومِ الدّينِ ? The meaning of this verse is Owner of the day of recompense (مالك يوم الجزاء). مَلِك is also recited instead of مالِكِ and it is a mutawatir (continuous) recitation. There is difference of opinion in the first of the two recitations. Some scholars preferred the recitation of مالك and some of them preferred the recitation of ملِك.
The following is a translation of Dr Fadhel al Samarrai’s Tafseer of Surah Fatiha. This tafseer gives an insight in to the miraculous nature of the Qur’anic Arabic. The All-Merciful (ٱلرَّحْمـٰنِ) is on the pattern of فَعْلان from الرحمة, and the Most Merciful (ٱلرَّحِيمِ) is on the pattern of فعيل. The pattern فعلان indicates upon occurrence and renewal in the same manner as the attributes thirsty, hungry and angry, and it does not indicate upon permanence. The description also informs of the attribute’s fullness.
The House of Representatives (Majlis al-Ummah) is an elected council whose members can be Muslim, non-Muslim, men or women. These members represent the interests of their constituencies within the state. The Majlis has no powers of legislation like in a democratic parliament but it does have many powers that act as a counterbalance to the executive powers of the Caliph.

At least 29 people have been killed in a blast inside the Coptic church of Marjeres in the Egyptian city of Tanta. A second blast later at a church in Alexandria killed 18 more. This is not the first bombing of Copts in recent years. Back in January 2011 another Egyptian church was bombed in Alexandria. In response we published an article Egypt’s Copts need the Caliphate which covered a number of points related to how Islam orders the good treatment of dhimmi (non-Muslim citizens of an Islamic State) and prescribes severe punishment for those who harm them.
وَمَا نَقَمُوا مِنْهُمْ إِلاَّ أَن يُؤْمِنُوا بِاللَّهِ الْعَزِيزِ الْحَمِيدِ “The only reason they punished them was because they had iman in Allah, the Almighty, the All-Praiseworthy” (Al-Buruj: 8)
