Sura Ar-Rahman (55) 18/09/2016


With the name of Allah Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Sura 55 (Ar-Rahman)

Allah SWT teaches the Quran

Verse 1 and 2

“The Beneficent Allah, He has taught the Quran”.

Allah SWT commences this sura with His attribute of mercy. He associates this attribute (of His mercy) with revelation. In other words it is through His mercy that He has revealed the Quran and has endowed human beings the faculties to absorb and grasp the message. When it’s message is understood and practiced upon, human beings will experience Allah’s true mercy. If however they do not practice on its teachings they will experience conflict and turmoil.

Cross reference:

6.155 – And this is a Book We have sent down, blessed; so follow it closely and be God-conscious that possibly you would be (granted) mercy.
