    Re: Meanings



    Both are phrases often used after mentioning any Islamic personality who came after the sahaaba (radiallaahu ta'aalaa 'anhum ajma'een).

    Rahimahullah means: Allah have mercy upon him.

    Rehmatullah alaih means: May the Mercy of Allah be upon him.

    So they both mean the same thing. From personal observation, rahimahullah tends to be used more in the Arab world, whereas rehmatullah alaih tends to be used in the Indian subcontinent. Other than that there's no difference. It doesn't really matter which phrase you choose.

    Allah knows best.

    Re: Meanings

    Rahim is a quality of "being merciful" (=adjactive!???)... rehmat is noun, "Mercy"..
