Did Abraham recite the Fãtehah in his Salat?

While we do not know what language Abraham spoke, it is interesting how similar the languages of the Abrahamic religions are to one another: Hebrew, Aramaic, and Arabic.

I was looking for a translation of the Fãtehah in Hebrew and stumbled on a Submitters Perspective article from January 2004 which had the HA PATCHAH prayer were it took passages out of the Old Testament and Jewish prayers that correspond with the verses from the Fãtehah and the similarities in language are very obvious.

HA PATCHAH (THE OPENING PRAYER)

BE SHEM ELAH HA RAHAMIM
In the name of God, the Most Gracious (Ezr.5:1; Dan.9:9)

ELOHEINU RIBOHN HA-OLAMIM
All praise be to God, Lord of the universe (Jewish liturgy)

HA RAHAMIM
The Most Gracious (Dan.9:9)

MELEK YOM HA DIN
Master of the Day of Judgment (Jewish terminology)

ELEKHA ADONAY EQARA WE EL ADONAY ET HANAN
To you, O Lord, I implore; and to my Lord, I seek help (Psalm 30:9)

HEHENI BE ORACH MISHOR
Guide us to the straight path (Psalm 27:11)

ALEKHET BE DEREHU WE LEYAREH ITTO
The way of life according to His path by reverencing Him (Deut 8:6)

LE HALAK BE ETSAH RISHAH WE LA SAGHAH
Not by the advice of the cursed, nor of the strayers (Psalm 119:21)
