Short Surahs and Surah Fatihah: Transliteration and Meanings

Qiṣār as-Suwar are twenty-two short sūrahs occurring at the end of the Qur’ān, from Sūrah adh-Dhuḥā to Sūrah an-Nās. We are pleased to present this booklet to readers unfamiliar with Arabic script to serve as an aid to reading and memorizing these short sūrahs which are commonly recited in prayer. Transliteration into Latin characters assists only to facilitate pronunciation until the time when you are able to read directly from the Arabic text, which should be a priority to learn whenever possible. Reciting Sūrah al-Fātiḥah it is a required part of the prayer (ṣalāh), so to memorize it is of great importance. After the recitation of al-Fātiḥah, it is recommended in the first two rakʽahs of prayer to add some additional verses or sūrahs whenever you are able to do so without difficulty.
