When I listen to the first Sura in the Quran, Sura Al-Fatihah, I hear some words at the beginning which are not part of the text in my Quran:
What do these words mean? After trying to listen to what it is saying, and searching a bit, I find a transliteration like "Audzubillah Himinas Syaiton Nirojim". Apparently the first word means "we seek refuge in Allah", and then there is something about evil maybe?
By contrast, the mp3 for the next Surah, Al-Baqarah, just starts with the "Bismillah" as it is written in my Quran.
What is being recited before the Bismillah in Surah Al-Fatihah?
