I have a question regarding the meaning of The Seven Mathani (Seven of the Oft-repeated) in Verse 15:87. I know that most of the scholars consider it as to be Al-Fatiha or the seven long Surahs. Now I found a Hadith, which could lead to an interpretation that the Quran itself is meant by it:
... this is what Al-Daraqutni reported from the Hadith of Abu Hurairah that The Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam) said: “If you recite ‘Al-hamdu Lillahi Rabi Al-Alamin’, you have to recite ‘Bismi Allahi Arrahman Arrahim; this Surah is the mother of the Qur'an, and the mother of the Book, and the mother of the seven Mathani, and ‘Bismi Allahi Arrahmani Arrahim’ is one of its verses”.

I know there are other hadiths, which shows, that Al-Fatiha is meant by it. The point here I want to make, is, that the Hadith states: „the mother of the Seven Mathani“, so it shows that Al-Fatiha is the mother of the Seven Mathani, also of the Book and of the Quran. So it is mentioned in an enumeration of maybe the same thing. Otherwise al-Fatiha would be the mother of itself, or am I overlooking something.
So I am not a scholar, but I trust our scholars. I also don’t know, whether the hadith is authentic, but my question is: Am I observing something completely wrong here or what it the approach to the mentioned hadith?
Allah knows best and may he protect us from the whispers of Shaitan.
