The answer to your question is as follows:

Doing Fatihah is unlawful because it is not found in the Qur'an and Hadith. Doing something which is not mentioned in the Qur'an and Hadith nor in the life of the blessed Companions is innovation (BidĄŻah) najaiz & unlawful. So if one does Fatihah, he must prove it from Hadith, Qur'an or companionsĄŻ action. Hadith says: "Beware of matters newly begun, for every matter newly begun is innovation, every innovation is misguidance, and every misguidance is in hell." According to Fatwa ruling, those, who say it is lawful, are responsible to carry a Hadith in support.
