You've basically answered your own question all I need to do is correct a few transliteration msitakes and put things together and explain. What you've heard before the recitation of al-Fatihah was the du'a (supplication) to take refuge by/in Allah from Satan the expelled which is recommended to do before beginning the recitation of the Qur'an as usually no ...

For finding answer, other Qur’anic verses along with hadiths (narrations) of Prophet help us. As for what the straight path and those who follow it are there are two relevant Qur'anic verses: وَأَنْ اعْبُدُونِي هَذَا صِرَاطٌ مُّسْتَقِيمٌ and that you worship me? Surely, that is the straight path. Ya-seen This identifies the straight path with ...

The answer based on fatwas is clearly that it is a bida'h as it was not reported by anybody that the Messenger of Allah () nor any of his sahaba did so.

I am from a country where alot people wrongfully pronounce the TH sound from ذ as a Z like sound but this is not TH sound it is a Tha ظـ which makes the D/TH sound. The Z sound is from letter zay ز.

Reciting al-Fatihah in several cases and situations in groups is an innovation which was not done by the prophet nor do we have any backup for that. As for expressing condolence it is a highly recommended deed for both men and women. However many on fatwa-sites they say it is disliked for a young women to go visit and express condolence to a men who is ...

For example read in: In the following I will translate from Arabic, these translations are of my own -unless I quoted a source- take them carefully ...

It appears that the website has a typo. The narration from Ad-Daraqtani is as follows: إذا قرأتُمُ{الْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ} [الفاتحة: ٢]، فاقرَؤوا{بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَنِ الرَّحِيمِ} [الفاتحة: ١]، إنَّها أُمُّ القُرآنِ، وأُمُّ الكِتابِ، والسَّبعُ المَثاني، و{بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَنِ الرَّحِيمِ} [الفاتحة: ١] إحدى آياتِها. (Sunan Ad-Daraqtani) If you recite ‘...

The right path is right after the first surah (surah fateha). 5 ayah of surah baqrah. (1) This is the Scripture whereof there is no doubt, a guidance unto those who ward off (evil). (2) Who believe in the Unseen, and establish worship, and spend of that We have bestowed upon them; (3) And who believe in that which is revealed unto thee (Muhammad) and ...
