Meaning name arham

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.


The Arabic word and term ‘Arham’ is a derived of the Arabic root word ‘Rahm’ which literally means the womb of a mother and thus ‘mercy’.  Literally the term ‘Arhaam’ is the plural of ‘Rahm’ and it would mean and imply ‘one who is merciful’.


Even the Blessed Names and Attributes of the Lord Most Majestic ‘Ar-Rahmaan’ (The Continuously Merciful) and ‘Ar-Raheem’ (The Most Merciful) are derived from the same Arabic root word ‘Rahm’ which literally means the womb of a mother, and thus ‘mercy’.


Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah’s Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone.  Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.


Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
