Ar Raheem

(The Merciful)  

He who acts with extreme kindness

Ar-Rahmaan and Ar-Raheem (Ar- Rahim) are two of the names of Allah which refer to Allah’s attribute of being Merciful. Although similarly related the meanings are different. Ar-Rahmaan refers to the vastness of Allah’s mercy, and Ar-Raheem refers specifically to His mercy he bestows on His creation.

On the authority of Ibn Abbas (may Allah be pleased with him), from the Messenger of Allah (pbuh):

“Verily Allah has written down the good deeds and the evil deeds, and then explained it: “Whosoever intended to perform a good deed, but did not do it, then Allah writes it down as a completed good deed. And if he intended to perform it and then did perform it, then Allah writes it down as from ten good deeds up to seven hundred times, up to many times multiplied. And if he intended to perform an evil deed, but did not do it, then Allah writes it down as a complete good deed. And if he intended it [i.e., the evil deed] and then performed it, then Allah writes it down as one evil deed.” [Bukhari & Muslim]

“Say: ‘He is the All-merciful’” (Quran 67:29)
