No Surah like Surah Fatihah has ever been revealed

Is this Hadith authentic?

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said regarding Surah Fatihah:

“By the One in Whose Hand is my soul! The like of it has neither been revealed in the Tawrah, nor the Injil nor the Zabur, nor in the Furqan [Quran].”


Imam Tirmidhi (rahimahullah) has recorded this as part of a longer narration on the authority of Sayyiduna Abu Hurayrah (radiyallahu ‘anhu). He has declared the Hadith authentic (hasanun sahih)

(Sunan Tirmidhi, Hadith: 2875)

Also see: Sahih Bukhari, Hadith: 4474, 4703

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
