What is the relationship between Lordship and Mercy of Allah سبحانه وتعالى?
Though Allah (سبحانه وتعالى) is the Lord of all the worlds, ‘رَبِّ الْعَالَمِينَ’, He reminds us that He is الرَّحْمَـٰنِ and الرَّحِيمِ. So, at the same time, He is Most Merciful. When man becomes powerful and is the lord over the realm, his nature is such that he becomes corrupt and misuses his power. He tends to become unfair, abusive and oppressive. But in spite of Allah (سبحانه وتعالى)’s Greatness in that regard, being the Lord over all, He is the Beneficent, the Most Merciful.< Back to Questions
