rahman    Al-Rahman (1:3)

The Gracious means that God provides not only all the necessary means, but also all the faculties needed for the development of man.

This attribute signifies that after creating man, God endowed him with the best capacities and capabilities, and provided the means and material needed for his physical, social, moral and spiritual development.

The Gracious is One who shows mercy gratuitously and extensively to all creation without regard to effort or work.

The abundance of everything which we enjoy in this life, which is indeed all a favor of God, is provided for us before we do anything to deserve it, or even before we are born.
