Ramadan Diary: Post #6

Assalam u alaikum (peace be upon you)!

Allah's mercy is a very beautiful thing indeed, if one was to contemplate.


Every surah in the Quran (except one) starts with the beautiful phrase "bismillah ir rehman ir raheem (in the name of God, the Merciful, the Giver of Mercy/Compassionate)," this phrase is second nature to Muslim's and is one of the first phrases we learn as Muslim's.

As my day was going along today, I started to think about this particular phrase-- most importantly the part "ir rehman (the Merciful)."  I noticed how beautiful it is that right after we recite the words "in the name of God" Allah tells us he is "the Merciful."  Just from this one beautiful phrase you see how much Allah loves us, and tells us that he is "the Giver of Mercy."  While we are humans, we will make mistakes and sin, but Allah, the All Mighty is so Forgiving and so Merciful that he knows this already and he want us to always turn to him because he is "the Merciful."  We are reminded this every time we recite the phrase "bismillah ir rehman ir raheem."  So, next time you say this beautiful phrase--really reflect on what Allah is telling you. 

Allah is Love, He is the Compassionate and His Mercy far exceeds His wrath.  He is the One, the Only and the Absolute.

Alhamdulillah (All praise belongs to God)
