"There is no one in the heavens and the earth but will come to the Beneficent Allah as a servant" (Quran, 19:93).
"Al-Rahman al-Rahim" are two of the Attributes of Allah which remind people of His mercy, of the fact that His act of affecting goodness and rewards reach whomsoever He pleases, thus warding off evil from them. "Al-Rahman" and "al- Rahim" are two concurrent Attributes of His each conveying more meanings of mercy than the other. "Al-Rahman" is an Attribute specifically relevant to Allah; none besides Him can be called or referred to as such, whereas "al-rahim" can be applied to people: One may be described as "rahim," merciful or kind, but a human cannot be "rahman".
In the Holy Quran, we read:
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful. and The Beneficent Allah is firm in power. (20:5)
It is an Attribute demonstrating that mercy can be possible only through Him. It means "the One Who grants mercy beyond which there is no other mercy at all and the like of which does not at all exist."
Though derived from mercy, "al-Rahman" is both a noun and an adjective. Neither contradicts the other. It is commonly known that mercy means: one's desire or power of will to bring goodness to one who is much less than him in status.
And your Allah is one Allah! There is no god but He; He is the Beneficent, the Merciful. (2, 163)
