“An interpretation is that Ar-Rahman is a title addressing Allah’s Rahmah in this world, and it’s counterpart, Ar-Raheem is for the next world. This world is a manifestation of Allah’s Rahma and the next world, Jannah for the believers, is a manifestation that Allah is Ar-Raheem. Another complementary interpretation is that Ar-Rahman describes the nature of Allah and Ar-Raheem describes the actions of Allah”.
