Allah calls himself AR-RAHMAN in 55 occasions in the Quran. Ar-Rahman in the one whose intense and perfect mercy embraces the whole creation!
Explaining the mercy of Allah, Prophet Muhammad(PBUH) said: “Allah has divided mercy into 100 parts, and He retained with Him 99 parts, and sent down to earth one part. Through this one part creatures deal with one another with compassion, so much so that an animal lifts its hoof over its young lest it should hurt it.” The Prophet(PBUH) also said, When Allah created the creatures, He wrote in the Book, which is with Him over His Throne: “Verily, My Mercy prevailed over My Wrath.”[Al-Bukharee]
You will not enter Jannah because of your deeds, but by the rahmah of Allah only.
How can you live by this name?
1. Never despair : No matter how many sins you commit, Allah can have mercy on you only if you turn to him!
2. Be merciful to others : The Holy Prophet said : “Allah will not be merciful to those who are not merciful to others!” 3. Keep family ties : The Holy Prophet said : “The womb (rahm) is derived from the Merciful, so whoever keeps relations with his family then Allah will keep relations with him, and whoever abandons his family then Allah will abandon him.”[At-Tirmidhee]
4. Be good to your parents : Daily ask Ar-Rahmaan to have mercy on your parents! Ar-Rahmaan instructs you: And your Lord has decreed that you not worship except Him, and to parents, good treatment.
5. Recognize mercy and be grateful. .
