 BISMI-LLAHI-R-RAHAMANI-R-RAHIM

in the name of allah, 
rahman, rahim

"In the name of God, most Gracious, most Compassionate".



Bismillah

To say bismillah is to humbly offer one's self as a vehicle for the glory and majesty of The One.

ir rahman ir rahim

These two terms rahman and rahim refer to attributes of the One. While they are often translated simply as Merciful and Compassionate, the roots of the words point to a deeper meaning.Both rahman and rahim are derived from the Semitic root r-h-m which indicates something of the utmost tenderness which provides protection and nourishment, and that from which all of creation is brought into being. And indeed, the root rhm has meanings of womb, kinship, relationship, loving-kindness, mercy, compassion, and nourishing-tenderness.Thus, both rahman and rahim point toward that which emerges from the source of all creation, while also conveying a sense of tenderness, loving-kindness, protection and nourishment.The term rahman is a very emphatic statement, and then the sentiment is echoed by being immediately followed by the use of another form of the same root-word. Such repetition is a joyful celebration of this Divine attribute, much the same as saying "The One who is the Supreme Loving-Kindness, oh such Loving-Kindness".These two words, rahman and rahim, also express slightly different variations of meaning, as described in the following paragraphs.


 
rahman:The term rahman describes that aspect of the source of all creation which is endlessly radiating, endlessly nourishing, regardless of who or what is receiving the endless flow of blessings.Rahmân conveys the idea of fullness and extensiveness, indicating the great quality of love and mercy which engulfs all of creation without regard to any effort or request on our part.According to Ibn Qayyum (1350 AD), rahmân describes the quality of abounding Grace which is inherent in and inseparable from the Almighty.

 
rahim:
On the other hand, the term rahim describes that aspect of the source which is issued forth only in response to the actions and behavior of the recipient. It is in this manner that God takes ten steps toward us when we take even a single step toward God.Rahîm conveys the idea of constant renewal and giving liberal reward in response to the quality of our deeds and thoughts.According to Ibn Qayyum (1350 AD), ram expresses the continuous manifestation of the Grace in our lives and its effect upon us as a result of our own activities.

 
ir rahman ir rahim:
Rahman points toward the Beneficent One whose endless outpouring of love and mercy are continually showered upon all of creation, while Rahim points toward the Merciful One whose love and mercy are manifested in that which is received as the consequence of one's deeds.So, the phrase ir rahman ir rahim is a recognition and honoring of the very source of all existence, the source of all blessings, the source of all compassion, the source of all mercy who gives endlessly to us and who also responds according to our moral integrity, our harmony with all of creation and our love of the Supreme One Being.

.:Gandhi:.

In honor of Mohandas Gandhi's birth...




There is an indefinable mysterious power that pervades
everything, I feel it though I do not see it. It is this unseen power
which makes itself felt and yet defies all proof, because it is so
unlike all that I perceive through my senses. It transcends the senses.
But it is possible to reason out the existence of God to a limited
extent. Even in ordinary affairs we know that people do not know who
rules or why and how He rules and yet they know that there is a power
that certainly rules.

In my tour last year in Mysore I met
many poor villagers and I found upon inquiry that they did not know who
ruled Mysore. They simply said some God ruled it. If the knowledge of
these poor people was so limited about their ruler I who am infinitely
lesser in respect to God than they to their ruler need not be surprised
if I do not realize the presence of God - the King of Kings.
Nevertheless, I do feel, as the poor villagers felt about Mysore, that
there is orderliness in the universe, there is an unalterable law
governing everything and every being that exists or lives. It is not a
blind law, for no blind law can govern the conduct of living being and
thanks to the marvelous researches of Sir J. C. Bose it can now be
proved that even matter is life. That law then which governs all life
is God. Law and the law-giver are one. I may not deny the law or the
law-giver because I know so little about it or Him. Just as my denial
or ignorance of the existence of an earthly power will avail me nothing
even so my denial of God and His law will not liberate me from its
operation, whereas humble and mute acceptance of divine authority makes
life's journey easier even as the acceptance of earthly rule makes life
under it easier.

I do dimly perceive that whilst everything
around me is ever changing, ever dying there is underlying all that
change a living power that is changeless, that holds all together, that
creates, dissolves and recreates. That informing power of spirit is
God, and since nothing else that I see merely through the senses can or
will persist, He alone is. And is this power benevolent or malevolent ?


I see it as purely benevolent, for I can see that in the midst of death
life persists, in the midst of untruth truth persists, in the midst of
darkness light persists.

Hence I gather that God is life,
truth, light. He is love. He is the supreme Good. But He is no God who
merely satisfies the intellect, if He ever does. God to be God must
rule the heart and transform it. He must express himself in every
smallest act of His votary. This can only be done through a definite
realization, more real than the five senses can ever produce. Sense
perceptions can be and often are false and deceptive, however real they
may appear to us. Where there is realization outside the senses it is
infallible. It is proved not by extraneous evidence but in the
transformed conduct and character of those who have felt the real
presence of God within.

Such testimony is to be found in the
experiences of an unbroken line of prophets and sages in all countries
and climes. To reject this evidence is to deny oneself. This
realization is preceded by an immovable faith.

He who would in
his own person test the fact of God's presence can do so by a living
faith and since faith itself cannot be proved by extraneous evidence
the safest course is to believe in the moral government of the world
and therefore in the supremacy of the moral law, the law of truth and
love.

Exercise of faith will be the safest where there is a
clear determination summarily to reject all that is contrary to truth
and love. I confess that I have no argument to convince through reason.
Faith transcends reason. All that I can advise is not to attempt the
impossible.
