We find in Surah al-Fatihah: غَيْرِ الْمَغْضُوبِ عَلَيْهِمْ {not of those who have earned [Your] anger}.

So we ask of Allah’s guidance (to the straight path) and seek refuge from being of the “maghdoobi ‘alayhim” [earned Your anger]. Who are these maghdoobi ‘alayhim [earned Your anger]? They are the Yahood [Jews].

Allah says, قُلْ هَلْ أُنَبِّئُكُمْ بِشَرٍّ مِنْ ذَلِكَ مَثُوبَةً عِنْدَ اللَّهِ مَنْ لَعَنَهُ اللَّهُ وَغَضِبَ عَلَيْهِ وَجَعَلَ مِنْهُمُ الْقِرَدَةَ وَالْخَنَازِيرَ وَعَبَدَ الطَّاغُوتَ أُوْلَئِكَ شَرٌّ مَكَانًا وَأَضَلُّ عَنْ سَوَاءِ السَّبِيلِ

{Say, “Shall I inform you of [what is] worse than that as penalty from Allah? [It is that of] those whom Allah has cursed and with whom He became angry and made of them apes and pigs and slaves of ṭāghūt [idolatry]. Those are worse in position and further astray from the sound way.”} (5:60) And those being referred to here are the Yahood [Jews].

وَلا الضَّالِّينَ {or of those who are astray} Who are the dalleen [of those who are astray]? They are the Nasara (Christians). This is mentioned by al-Imam ibn Kathir (may Allah have mercy on him) and others.

Isn’t it amazing that we ask this a minimum of 17 times a day, yet we try to imitate and be like them day and night?
