In this paper, the problem of Magnetohydrodynamic stagnation point flow over a stretching sheet with fluid rotation and heat generation was considered and presented. The Partial differential equations were transformed using similarity variables to set of transformed, ordinary nonlinear coupled differential equations. The approximate solutions were presented using the Adomian decomposition method. However, the results presented were validated with the literature and a good agreement was observed.  The effects of various dimensionless parameters like rotational parameter, thermal Grashof number, concentration Grashof number, Prandtl number, heat generation, Schimidt number, stretching parameter and suction/injection parameter that appeared were graphically presented. Meanwhile, the boundary was found to enhance the velocity profile because of buoyancy effect and it dropped in the other profile because of drag force. Conclusively, the graphs presented in this work clearly satisfy the boundary conditions, which imply that the problem is well posed and the point of stretching. α = 0.6

Keywords: Fluid rotation, stagnation point flow, magnetohydrodynamics, stretching sheet, adomian decomposition method (ADM)
