رحمن

See also: زحمن

ArabicEdit

Etymology 1Edit

Of the root ر ح م(r-ḥ-m). Compare Aramaic רַחְמָן‎ / ܪܚܡܢ(raḥmān), Hebrew רַחְמָן(raḥmān). It is usual to believe the Arabic form borrowed from either, immediately or through the mediation of Old South Arabian, due to occurrence of the word in but this specific context of epithetizing the monotheistic god الرَّحْمٰن(ar-raḥmān), the defective spelling even of which in the previously converted language communities is mirrored.
