From my perspective, being a Christian, it would have to be the salvation given us through Jesus Christ.

God's mercy enables us to be in relationship with him - despite our weaknesses and faults.

Salvation in the Day of Judgment is the weight of your good deeds, Do good and God will reward you and get you into paradise.

Greetings, Mohjack

Barney has invited us in this thread to explain what we personally believe is God's greatest mercy to mankind.
It's an invitation to people from different religions, therefore the answers may differ, depending on our faiths and/or our personal views.

Keltoi is a Christian and believes that God's greatest mercy to us is the salvation through Jesus Christ.

What do you as a Muslim believe is God's greatest mercy to us all?

peace :)

Greetings and peace be with you barney

I believe it only makes sense that for God to be merciful, he must also be fair and just.

It seems pointless being merciful if he is evil.

In the spirit of searching for a loving God

Sending Prophet Muhammed as a mercy to the whole of mankind, who was drowning in the depths of ignorance. Through the prophet (PBUH) God showed us the right Path - so we could save ourselves. I can't think of a greater mercy than this. Allahu Akbar!

As Salaam Alaykum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuhu and Greetings.

Verily, there are one hundred (parts of) mercy for Allah Ta'ala, and it is one part of this mercy by virtue of which there is mutual love between the people and ninety-nine reserved for the Day of Resurrection.

So we can only see 1 of 100 of Allah Mercy on Earth but on the day of Judgment we will see 99 Parts of his Mercy. We read every Bis-millah-nir-Rahman nir-Raheem. 112 in the Quran it is Mentioned. Rahman is for this World. Raheem is for the Next World.

'Allah will not be Merciful to those who are not Merciful to mankind' So as Muslims we need to always be polite, humble, patient, loving and well mannered when he/she deals with others, whether they were Muslims or non-Muslims.

It's a hadith, brother.

The prophet peace be upon him said, "Allah has divided mercy into 100 parts, and He retained with Him 99 parts, and sent down to earth 1 part. Through this one part creatures deal with one another with compassion, so much so that an animal lifts its hoof over its young lest it should hurt it." (Al-Bukhari)

edit- i hate my slow internet. :(

The Qur’an says several times that Allah is the most Merciful. In fact all the 114 Surahs i.e. chapters of the Glorious Qur’an except for Surah Taubah chapter 9, begin with the beautiful formula, Bismillah-hir-Rahman-nir-Rahim, which means, "In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful".

Reminds me of these Quranic verses:

And if you should count the favors of Allah , you could not enumerate them. Indeed, Allah is Forgiving and Merciful. (16:18)

And if you count the Blessings of Allah, never will you be able to count them.(14:34)
