"Verily this Brotherhood of yours is a single Brotherhood and I am your Sustainer; therefore serve Me alone." (S.21, v. 92)

Infinite Mercy: Ar-Rahman

0

“Allah Guides to His Light Whom He Wills.”

Bismillah-ir-Rahman-ir Raheem.

Allah’s (subhana wa ta’ala) Rahma is infinite. In less than the blink of an eye, His Rahma renews itself and further penetrates existence.

Take a moment.

Look at your hands – touch them. What do you feel? Smooth skin, bones, joints, and veins. Look how Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) constructed your hands. The small veins of your hands lay on the service, while larger veins lay deeper. His Rahma is reflected in this, as if it were that your larger veins lay on the surface, you would be in grave danger of injury.

Take another moment.

Think about your sight. Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) has limited your sight, but this limitation is His Rahma. If you were to see all that there was to see, you would not be able to even drink spring water from a store bought bottle, as all the microscopic elements of water would be transparent to you, moving around in the bottle.

Take yet another moment.

Think about your hearing. Allah (subhana wa ta’ala), from His Rahma, has limited your hearing as well. Every process in your body makes as sound, but yet we are unable to hear the closest sounds to us! If our hearing was not limited, we would constantly imbued with sounds from within our own body.

We must think and reflect on His endless Rahma. His Rahma is our only constant, and the only constant that increases consistently; the more we think and reflect, the more we will begin to realize His all-encompassing Rahma.

May Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) raise your maqam, and May He envelope you always in His Rahma.
