Do you know Allaah The Almighty?

This is Allaah The Almighty

This is Allaah, The One who has no partners: Allaah The Almighty says:

{Say, "He is Allah , [who is] One, Allah , the Eternal Refuge. He neither begets nor is born, Nor is there to Him any equivalent.}[Al-Ikhlaas: 1-4]

This is Allaah …The Most Gracious, The Most Merciful

You will find that He loves to make His worshipers know about His Mercy. Allaah The Almighty says:

{[O Muhammad], inform My servants that I am the one who is the Forgiving, the Merciful.}[Al-Hijr: 49]

And that His Mercy encompasses all things. Allaah The Almighty says:

{But My mercy encompasses all things.}[Al-A‘raaf: 156]

Moreover, you find Him More Merciful than the mother to her child.

It was narrated that ‘Umar ibn al-Khattaab, may Allaah be pleased with him, said: “There was a woman among the prisoners who was searching. When she found a child among the prisoners, she took him, embraced him and put him to her breast. The Messenger of Allaah, peace and blessings be upon him, said to us, ‘Do you think that this woman would throw her child in the fire?’ We said, ‘No, by Allaah.’ The Messenger of Allaah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “Allaah is More Merciful to His slaves than this woman is to her child.”[1]

Hammaad ibn Salamah said: “It does not please me that may matter, on the Day of Resurrection, will be referred to my son for surely my Lord is More Merciful to me than my son.”

If the Kaafir [disbeliever] knew how great the Mercy Allaah is, he would have hope in His Paradise:

It was narrated that the Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, said: “If the Kaafir knew how great the Mercy Allaah is, he would not lose hope of Paradise.”[2]

His Mercy makes the beasts, insects and other moving creatures merciful to each others.

It was narrated that the Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, said: “Allaah has one hundred parts of mercy, of which He sent down one between the jinn, mankind, the animals and the insects, by means of which they are compassionate and merciful to one another, and by means of which wild animals are kind to their offspring.” And in another narration, the Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, said: “…so that even the mare lifts up its hoofs away from its baby animal, lest it should trample on it. And Allaah has kept back ninety-nine parts of mercy with which to be merciful to His slaves of the Day of Resurrection.”[3]

He descends every night and calls upon His worshippers to bestow mercy upon them.

It was narrated that the Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, said: “Our Lord The Almighty and The Exalted descends every night to the lowest heaven when one-third of the night remains and says: ‘Who will call upon Me, that I may answer Him? Who will ask of Me, that I may give him? Who will seek My forgiveness, that I may forgive him?”[4]
