Answer 4: It is Sûrah al-Fâtihah, the first sûrah of the Qur’ân.

Ibn ‘Abbâs  reported: When Jibra’îl, peace be upon him, was seated near the Prophet , he heard a voice from above. He raised up his head and said, “It is a door from heaven which has been opened today and which was never opened before except today.” Then an angel descended from it. He said, “It is an angel who has come down to the earth today and who did never come down before.” He greeted and said, “Give good news of two lights which you have been given and which no prophet before you was given: the Opening of the Book (al-Fâtihah), and the last portion of Sûrah al-Baqarah (2:284-6). You will never read a letter from them for which you will not be given [reward] thereof.” [Muslim, Mishkât (Al-Hadis III:677)]

Abu Hurairah  reported that the Messenger of Allâh  asked ‘Ubay ibn Ka’b: “How do you read (the Qur’ân) in prayer?” Then he read “the Mother of the Qur’ân” (i.e. Sûrah al-Fâtihah). The Messenger of Allâh  said: “By the One in whose hand there is my life, the like of it was never revealed either in the TorahInjîlZabûr, or in the Qur’ân; and it is the ‘seven oft-repeated verses’ and the ‘great Qur’ân’ (see 15:87) which I have been given.” [Tirmidhi, Mishkât (Al-Hadis III:682)]
