Answer:
Praise be to Allaah

It is obligatory, as the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “pray as you have seen me praying.” Narrated by al-Bukhaari. And he (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “There is no prayer for the one who does not recite the Opening of the Book [al-Faatihah].” Saheeh – agreed upon. 

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
