Ramadhan desserts ( part 3)
أبو حنظلة محمد زهري
After knowing His greatness, grandeur and his perfect control on the worlds, let's move on to the next verse,
الرحمٰن الرحيم : most beneficent , most merciful
These two words came from the رحم which means mercy. And these 2 words are in the form of 'shigathul mubalaghah' and ' sifatul mushabahah' which means that the abundance of mercy and the everlasting mercy. From here we can realize that Allah swt with all his might, power and greatness controlling all the worlds , yet is the most merciful to His creations. In one hadith The Messenger of Allah, peace be upon him, said: “Indeed, Allah has one hundred (portions of) mercy; because of one there is compassion between creation, and ninety-nine are reserved for the Day of Resurrection.” So after giving praise and thanks to Him and realizing His greatness we get to know Him for his great mercy and will not lose hope for His blessings and forgiveness. And this is the characteristic of a muslim, he is grateful, conscience of Allah swt greatness and merciful as He is merciful to those who are merciful to others.
Also in making doa, we are taught to pray by mentioning His Asmaul Husna and arrahman arrahim are one of His beautiful names. So use these names in our doa when we are asking for His help, mercy and compassion......
