Not quite, haha!
"Rahman" is a word that's there because of a faulty translation; it only means "merciful" in Arabic. I don't know why that's there. Just like why the translator would choose "Allah" instead of "God". It bugs me when a foreign word is used in a place where there is a clear translation.
The passage should read, "Say: 'Call upon God or call upon The Merciful, by whatever name you call upon Him, (it is well) for to Him belong the Most Beautiful Names.'"

Allah has got 99 names, Ar-Rahman is one of them which mean "The Compassionate, The Beneficent"

I think "The Merciful" is actually "Ar-Raheem" which is different from "Ar-Rahman", I think you've mixed them...or have I?

Ah, perhaps I should've said "Compassionate/Gracious/Benificent".
They both mean a similar thing, though. I just think of the whole "In the name of God, the Compassionate/Gracious/Benificent, the Merciful".

Those who reject our Signs, We shall soon cast into the Fire: as often as their skins are roasted through, We shall change them for fresh skins, that they may taste the penalty: for Allah is Exalted in Power, Wise. (004:056 Yusufali )


Indeed, Allah forgives all sins. Truly, He is Most Forgiving, Most Merciful.

78:1 About what are they asking one another?
78:2 About the great news -
78:3 That over which they are in disagreement.
78:4 No! They are going to know.
78:5 Then, no! They are going to know.
78:6 Have We not made the earth a resting place?
I really love the repetition in verses 3 and 4
also i like
80:17 Cursed is man; how disbelieving is he
80:18 From what substance did He create him?
80:19 From a sperm-drop He created him and destined for him
thank you for this lovely thread

Default The Light

"Allah is the Light of the heavens and the earth. The similitude of His light is as a niche wherein is a lamp. The lamp is in a glass. The glass is as it were a shining star. (This lamp is) kindled from a blessed tree, an olive neither of the East nor of the West, whose oil would almost glow forth (of itself) though no fire touched it. Light upon light. Allah guideth unto His light whom He will. And Allah speaketh to mankind in allegories, for Allah is Knower of all things."

it's beautiful
