Quran Miracle: It Introduces God As Rahman, Rahim and Ghafur
Mercy & Beneficence Of God: Universal Application
Quran introduces God
As Rahman, Rahim and Ghafur. This totally matches with the conformity and consistency required for the operation and survival of a universe
as we live in. This trait is a must must for the uniformity of the physical laws and continuity of complex cosmological processes and the existence of living beings.
O people always thank that your Lord is Gracious and Merciful and not like any powerful person or king of this world. Just think if God would not be like the way He is. Then what would be the situation? Imagine a king or even a powerful authoritative average person around you. How their mood swings, how they change their behaviours, their words, their promises. How forgiving someone totally depends on their mood. How they become angry on their insults. While your Lord listens to all those insulting words, people say against Him day and night.
Although He is All-powerful, He has given the freedom and free will
not believe in Him and do all that you want to do against Him. He has made a precise method of accounts that whoever will do righteous
deeds He will forgive him. He never breaks His promise. Thanks that He is like this. Not even this but for those who do not have good deeds in their accounts He gives them a clear hope by this verse, “Say, O My slaves those who have transgressed against themselves, do not despair of the Mercy of God. Indeed, God forgives all sins. Indeed, He is the Oft-Forgiving, the Most Merciful”
حَدَّثَنَا الْحَكَمُ بْنُ نَافِعٍ، أَخْبَرَنَا شُعَيْبٌ، عَنِ الزُّهْرِيِّ، أَخْبَرَنَا سَعِيدُ بْنُ الْمُسَيَّبِ، أَنَّ أَبَا هُرَيْرَةَ، قَالَ سَمِعْتُ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم يَقُولُ “ جَعَلَ اللَّهُ الرَّحْمَةَ مِائَةَ جُزْءٍ، فَأَمْسَكَ عِنْدَهُ تِسْعَةً وَتِسْعِينَ جُزْءًا، وَأَنْزَلَ فِي الأَرْضِ جُزْءًا وَاحِدًا، فَمِنْ ذَلِكَ الْجُزْءِ يَتَرَاحَمُ الْخَلْقُ، حَتَّى تَرْفَعَ الْفَرَسُ حَافِرَهَا عَنْ وَلَدِهَا خَشْيَةَ أَنْ تُصِيبَهُ ”.
Abu Huraira said that I heard Prophet of God saying, Allah divided Mercy into 100 parts. He kept its 99 parts with Him and sent down its one part on the earth, and because of that, its one single part, His creations are Merciful to each other, so that even the mare lifts up its hoofs away from its baby animal, lest it should trample on it.”

عَنْ سَلْمَانَ قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ إِنَّ اللَّهَ خَلَقَ يَوْمَ خَلَقَ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضَ مِائَةَ رَحْمَةٍ كُلُّ رَحْمَةٍ طِبَاقَ مَا بَيْنَ السَّمَاءِ وَالْأَرْضِ فَجَعَلَ مِنْهَا فِي الْأَرْضِ رَحْمَةً فَبِهَا تَعْطِفُ الْوَالِدَةُ عَلَى وَلَدِهَا وَالْوَحْشُ وَالطَّيْرُ بَعْضُهَا عَلَى بَعْضٍ فَإِذَا كَانَ يَوْمُ الْقِيَامَةِ أَكْمَلَهَا بِهَذِهِ الرَّحْمَةِ
