Allah is Ar-Rahmaan Ar-Raheem: the most loving, compassionate and merciful.
That is God’s first introduction of himself in the Qur’an: 1:2. That is Surah 1, Aayat 2.
Have you heard of a One-Two Punch? This is it. Left followed by Right, like lightening follows thunder, except that in this case – coming from Allah and involving Allah – both are Right.
Kiltaa Yadaahu Yameenataani.
A divine one-two punch for love – and mercy and compassion – from the maker of the world to the world he made.
Sent down at the hands of a man, Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam, whom he calls love and mercy: Rahmat.
For, when the Muslims – I am sorry I have to say “True” and “Real” Muslims – are done building a Better World, it will be, God Willing, a world that is the best for everyone.
And by that I mean every Jew, Christian, Hindu, Muslim, believer, nonbeliever, man, woman, child, bird, beast, plant and everything else on this earth.
For, it will reflect the kindness and compassion of a Rabb that is Rahmaanur Raheem and a Rasul, Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam, that is Rahmat.
The time has come for the world to feast on that Manna of Rahmat from Heaven – once again.
And that time is now.
And we, Bi-Idhnillahi, are the people to do it.
Waffaqanallahu Lima Yyuhibbu Wa Yardwa.
May Allah guide and help us to do and say what is right and true and good – for all of God’s creation.
