AA In the name of Allah, most benevolent, ever-merciful. ALL PRAISE BE to Allah, Lord of all the worlds,

NQ In the Name of Allâh, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful.

PK In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.

SH In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.

YU In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.

Beneficent: Characterized by or performing acts of kindness or charity.

Merciful: Full of mercy; compassionate.

Mercy: leniency and compassion shown toward offenders.

Compassion: Deep awareness of the suffering of another coupled with the wish to relieve it.

Jesus (the god of Christianity) outwardly displayed both of these ‘attributes' during the course of His earthly ministry – as documented in the Gospels. While Muhammad/Allah ‘talk a good talk' they ‘walk a decidedly perverse walk' – as documented in the Quran/Hadiths. Muhammad/Allah was unable to work a single miracle – Muhammad/Allah was unable (or at least disinclined) to forgive a single sin. Where is the evidence of the beneficent merciful attributes of Muhammad/Allah?
