A concrete explanation of the two names most often repeated Allah Ar – Ar Rahman – Rahim , and the nature of perfect and harmonious Mercy of God
If someone asked , “Who is your God ? A Muslim response would be: ” The Beneficent, the Merciful . . “According to Islamic sources , the prophets , while insisting on the judgment of God, as proclaimed mercy in the Muslim scripture , God is presented as :
” He is God, besides Whom there is no deity , Knower of the unseen and the testimony is the – .. Compassionate , the Merciful ” ( Quran 59:22 )
Vocabulary in the Islamic al- Rahman al- Rahim and are personal names of the living God . Both are derived from rahma name , which means “mercy” , “compassion” and ” tenderness ” . Ar – Rahman describes the nature of God to be merciful , and AR – Rahim describes his acts of piety provided its creation , a subtle difference , but it shows all the universal mercy .
” Say: ” call upon God , or call Merciful ( Ar – Rahman ) , as his name is called – to Him belong the Most Beautiful Names …. ” ( Quran 17:110 )

(Jewish Encyclopedia, ‘Names of God,’ p. 163)] A greater sense vehicle . kindness, the Prophet said :
” In fact , God is good and loves goodness. Agrees with what kindness does not agree with the harshness . ” ( Sahih Muslim)

“Praise be to Allah , the Lord of all the worlds . Compassionate, the Merciful ” ( Quran 1:2-3 )
In a prayer that Muslims recite at least seventeen times a day , starting to say :
“In the name of God , the Compassionate , the Merciful . Praise be to Allah , the Lord of all the worlds, the Beneficent, the Merciful ” ( Quran 1:1-3 ) .
These powerful words evoke a divine response :
” When the servant says: ” Praise be to Allah , the Lord of all the worlds , I ( God ) said: ” My servant has praised Me . When he says : ” Most Gracious, Most Merciful , I ( God ) said: ” My servant has praised me . ” ( Sahih Muslim)
These names constantly remind Muslim divine mercy surrounding . All but one of the chapters of the Muslim scripture begins with the phrase : “In the name of God, the – Compassionate , the Merciful . ” Muslims begin in the name of God to express their ultimate dependence on it and remember mercy God every time I eat , drink , write a letter or do something important. Flowers spirituality banal. invocation at the beginning of every common act , it is important to call God’s blessing on this law and enshrines . the formula is a popular decorative motif of manuscripts and architectural ornamentation .
Distribution requires someone mercy mercy shown . He who shows mercy to be in need . Perfect thank you to care for the needy , then infinite mercy extends to those who need or do not need , the extension of this world wonderful life after death .
In Islamic doctrine , human beings in a personal relationship with the God loving, merciful , always ready to forgive our sins and to answer prayers , but there is no mercy in the human sense of feeling pain and sorrow for one trouble. God becomes human to understand suffering . Instead, God’s mercy is an attribute worth his holiness , bringing divine favor and help.

Extend all existence :
” … My mercy encompasses all things …. ” ( Quran 7:156 )
Creation itself is an expression of divine grace , mercy and love. God invites us to observe the effects of mercy around us :
” Here, then , (O man) , the signs of God’s mercy – how He gives life to the earth after its death ! … ” ( Quran 30:50 )

” And (thus ,O Prophet ) you have sent you as [ an evidence of Our ] mercy to all the worlds. ” ( Quran 21:107 )
As they believe that Jesus was God’s mercy to people :
” And you can do a symbol of humanity and an act of mercy for us. ” ( Quran 19:21)
A daughter of the Prophet Muhammad , peace and blessings of God be upon him , sent for her sick child. He reminded that God is the giver, He is the one who takes , and each has a specific duration. Recalled that is patient. When the news of the death of his son succeeded him , tears ran from his eyes compassion . His colleagues were surprised . The Prophet of Mercy said :
” This is the compassion that God has placed in the hearts of his servants . Of all His servants, God will have mercy and compassion. ” ( Sahih al- Bukhari)
