The Most Beneficent And Merciful
A Muslim believes that God of the whole universe and of each and every thing is only Allah Almighty. Allah Almighty has beautiful names and His every name has unique meanings. His names teach us and make us understand about His majesty. His all names are great and blessed. When we recite them we feel comfort and serenity in our heart and body. Allah Almighty told us about His great names in the blessed Quran let us read blessed Ayah about the great names of Allah Almighty;
“And for Allah only are the best names, so invoke Him with them;”
(Surah Al-Aaraaf, Ayah 180)
رحمن and رحيم are two attributive names of Allah Almighty; رحمن means “that being, as well as being one that bestows blessings, which is very merciful”, and رحیم means “the one who shows great mercy.”
One should remember that it is only the being of Allah Almighty, in reality, which grants blessings and bounties. It is His being alone that does not seek reward for showing mercy. Every small, large, seen, unseen, physical, spiritual, wordly and heavenly blessing or bounty is bestowed by no other than Allah Almighty, any blessing that has reached anyone in the world is due in fact to the mercy of Allah Almighty as creating the urge in the heart of someone to be merciful, the power to enact that mercy, the very existence of blessings and bounties and the presence of someone to receive the blessing and benefit from it by having been granted soundness and completeness in body and limbs comes all from Allah Almighty.
Let us read few sublime sayings of the beloved Rasool صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم regarding the blessed and best names of Allah Almighty and make our mind to memorize them.
عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ، رِوَايَةً قَالَ" لِلَّهِ تِسْعَةٌ وَتِسْعُونَ اسْمًا، مِائَةٌ إِلاَّ وَاحِدًا، لاَ يَحْفَظُهَا أَحَدٌ إِلاَّ دَخَلَ الْجَنَّةَ، وَهْوَ وَتْرٌ يُحِبُّ الْوَتْرَ "
Abu Hurairaرضی اللہ عنہ narrated that the beloved Rasool صلي الله عليه وسلم said: Allah has ninety-nine Names, one hundred minus one, and whoever memorize them will enter Paradise; and Allah is witr (one) and loves 'the witr' (i.e., odd numbers). (Sahih Bukhari, Kitab ul Dawat, Hadees No 6410)
عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ، عَنِ النَّبِيِّ صلى الله عليه وسلم قَالَ" إِنَّ لِلَّهِ تِسْعَةً وَتِسْعِينَ اسْمًا مَنْ أَحْصَاهَا دَخَلَ الْجَنَّةَ "
Abu Huraira رضی اللہ عنہ narrated that the Prophet صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم said: “Indeed, Allah has ninety-nine Names, whoever counts them shall enter Paradise.” (Tirmizi, kitab ul Dawat, Hadees no 3508)
