The reasons that Allah call himself to be the most merciful:

a) ALLAH IS THE ONE THAT CREATED ALL THE PEOPLE AROUND THE WORLD AND THAT INCLUDES YOU AND I

Quran 2:21, "O men! serve your Lord Who created you and those before you so that you may guard (against evil). "

If Allah never created you, you are not in existence. How do you feel if Allah did not create you, is it horrible to you since you are not in existence at all? As Allah did create you on the earth, this shows that he is merciful to you so that you could live on this earth.

2) ALLAH IS THE ONE THAT CREATED HEAVEN AND EARTH

Quran 2:29, "He it is Who created for you all that is in the earth, and He directed Himself to the heaven, so He made them complete seven heavens, and He knows all things. "

As Allah has created all that is in the earth, this shows that Allah is merciful to you since Allah not only allows muslims to enjoy the beauty of nature, he also allows you, non-muslim, to enjoy the beauty of nature too.

Allah is the one who created heaven. If Allah did not create heaven, do you think there is so called, paradise, in heaven for believers? Certainly! Allah is merciful to believers to creates paradise for them to enjoy.

3) ALLAH IS THE ONE THAT CREATES RAIN AND SENDS IT DOWN FROM SKIES; HE IS THE ONE THAT PROVIDES FRUITS TO FEED YOU

Quran 14:32, "It is Allah Who hath created the heavens and the earth and sendeth down rain from the skies, and with it bringeth out fruits wherewith to feed you; it is He Who hath made the ships subject to you, that they may sail through the sea by His command; and the rivers (also) hath He made subject to you. "

Allah is merciful since he is the one that created the sky. If Allah did not create the sky for you, non-muslim, as well, there would not be any sun in the sky and you would also be living in darkness. As Allah is merciful, there is sun so as to distinguish day and night throughout 24 hours.

Allah is the one that creates rain for you, non-muslims, as well as muslims too, If Allah is not merciful to create rain, you would not be able to drink water as and when water on the lands dry up.

Allah is the one that brings fruits to feed you. Imagine Allah does not/will not send down rain now and foever in the future, all the plants will die. Even if you, non-muslims, have money, you could not buy fruits to eat since all the plants die without water as a result of a long period without raining. As Allah is the one that sends down rain, indirectly you could say that he is the one that bings fruits to feed you. Without the mercy of Allah, you would be thirst like hell and there would not be any choice for you to eat any fruits without him to send rain to you and this shows that Allah is the most merciful.

Allah is the one that sends knowledge to the inventor of ships so that he could invent ships and we could sail from one place to another by means of Allah's kindness. As Allah is the one that gave knowledge to the inventor of ships to invents ships, we could indirectly say that he is the one that made the ships since all knowledge of making ships is from him and this shows his merciful. If Allah is not merciful, he would not give knowledge to the inventor of ships to invent ships and there would not be any possbility for us to sail from one country to another by sea transportation.

4) ALLAH IS THE ONE THAT CREATED COLOURS FOR US TO ENJOY

Quran 16:13, "And the things on this earth which He has multiplied in varying colours (and qualities): verily in this is a sign for men who celebrate the praises of Allah (in gratitude). "

If Allah did not create various colours, the world would look dull since all the places are in the same colour. This is Allah's merciful that allows you, non-muslims, to be able to enjoy.

5) ALLAH ACCEPTS REPENTANCE FROM NON-MUSLIMS

Quran 25:70, "Unless he repents, believes, and works righteous deeds, for Allah will change the evil of such persons into good, and Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful, "

If Allah does not accept repentance from non-muslims to be muslims, all non-muslims would die. As Allah is merciful, he accepts repentance from non-muslims and he demands muslims to preach for their repentance for the hope to be saved from the Last Judgment Day.

6) ALLAH IS MERCIFUL SINCE HE WILL FORGIVE

Quran 5:39, "But whoever repents after his iniquity and reforms (himself), then surely Allah will turn to him (mercifully); surely Allah is Forgiving, Merciful. "

If Allah is so cruel that he would not forgive if non-muslims and muslims repent, all of us would perish on the Last Judgment Day.

7) LASTLY ALLAH IS THE ONE THAT SENT THE INSPIRATION TO MUHAMMAD FOR THE WRITE-UP OF QURAN

If Allah is not merciful, he would not send inspiration to Muhammad to provide the infomation how to be saved from the Last Judgment Day and we would definitely be condemned and perished on that day..
