Surah Ar-Rahman is the 55th chapter of the Quran. It comprises 78 verses (ayat) and is a Makki surah, meaning it was revealed in the city of Makkah before the Prophet Muhammad’s migration to Madinah. The chapter is named after the Arabic word “Ar-Rahman,” which translates to “The Most Merciful.”
Surah Ar-Rahman is a deeply profound and poetic chapter that emphasizes the boundless mercy and blessings of Allah. The chapter is characterized by the repetitive refrain “Which of the favors of your Lord will you deny?” It highlights the numerous blessings and wonders of the universe as signs of God’s mercy and creative power. The surah contrasts the mercy of Allah with the consequences faced by those who reject His guidance. It underscores the importance of gratitude, reflection, and recognizing the divine source of all goodness.
