Ar-Rahman = The All-Compassionate

The Most Gracious has imparted this Qur’an unto man.
He has created man: He has imparted unto him articulate thought and speech.
At His behest the sun and the moon run their appointed courses; before Him prostrate themselves the stars and the trees.
And the skies has He raised high, and has devised for all things a measure, so that you too, O men, might never transgress the measure of what is right: weight, therefore, your deeds with equity, and cut not the measure short!
and the earth has He spread out for all living beings, with fruit thereon, and palm trees with sheathed clusters of dates, and grain growing tall on its stalks, and sweet-smelling plants.
Which, then, of your Sustainer’s powers can you disavow?

Ar-Rahman 55:1-13, tr. Asad

My name is (Abdul) Rahman !

For non Muslims, Rahman is one of the 99 names of Allah.

So the Muslims who choose to take one the 99 names of Allah must put Abdul in front, meaning servant of Allah. So it is inappropriate to cal me Rahman or Dr. Rahman. We need to call Abdul Rahman or at least A. Rahman may be acceptable.

(From Wikipedia) The 99 Names of Allah, also known as The 99 Most Beautiful Names of God (Arabic: أسماء الله الحسنى‎ ʾasmāʾ allāh al-Ḥusnā), are the names of God (specifically, attributes) by which Muslims regard God and which are traditionally maintained as described in the Qur’ān, and Sunnah, amongst other places.[1] There is, according to hadith, a special group of 99 names but no enumeration of them. Thus the exact list is not agreed upon, and the names of God (as adjectives, word constructs, or otherwise) exceed 99 in the Qur’ān and Sunnah. Some of the names of God have been hidden from mankind, therefore there are not only 99 names of God but there are more.

Below is the list of the 99 Names of God according al-Walid ibn Muslim.

#↓ Arabic↓ Transliteration↓ Translation (can vary based on context)↓ Qur’anic usage↓
1 الرحمن Ar-Rahmān The Compassionate, The Beneficent, The Gracious Beginning of every chapter except one, and in numerous other places. Name frequently used in Surah 55, Ar-Rahman.

Personal names  (from Wiki)

According to Islamic tradition, a Muslim may not be given any of the 99 names of God in the exact same form. For example, nobody may be named al-Malik (The King), but may be named Malik (King). This is because of the belief that God is almighty, and no human being is the equivalent of God, and no human being will ever be the equivalent of God. Muslims are allowed to use the 99 names of Allah for themselves but should not put ‘Al’ at the front of them.

However the names/attributes of God can be combined with the word “‘Abd” which means “servant/slave” (of God) and are commonly used as personal names among Muslims. For example ‘Abd ar-Raḥmān (“Servant of the Most Compassionate/the Beneficent”). The two parts of the name may be written separately (as above) or combined as one transliterated name; in such a case, the vowel transcribed after ‘Abd is often written as u when the two words are transcribed as one: e.g., Abdurrahman, Abdul’aziz, “Abdul-Jabbar”, or even Abdullah (“Servant of God”). (This has to do with Arabic case vowels, the final u vowel showing the normal “quote” nominative/vocative case form: ‘abdu.)

Sarawak’s current Yang di-Pertua Negeri Tun Abdul Taib Mahmud, who is Rahman’s nephew, said he was greatly saddened by his uncle’s passing.

Abd ar-Rahman I (Arabic: عبد الرحمن الداخل; known as “the Immigrant”, also the “Falcon of Andalus” or “The Falcon of the Quraish”[1]; 731 – 788) was the founder of the Umayyad Emirate of Córdoba (755)[2], a Muslim dynasty that ruled the greater part of Iberia for nearly three centuries (including the succeeding Caliphate of Córdoba). The Muslims called the regions of Iberia under their dominion al-Andalus. Abd ar-Rahman’s establishment of a government in al-Andalus represented a branching from the rest of the Islamic Empire, which had been usurped by the Abbasid overthrow of the Umayyads from Damascus in 750. Variations of his name include Abd al-Rahman I and Abderraman I.

Abd ar-Rahman II (Arabic: عبد الرحمن الثاني‎; 788 – 852) was Umayyad Emir of Cordoba in the Al-Andalus (Moorish Iberia) from 822 until his death.

In 844 Abd ar-Rahman repulsed an assault by Vikings who had disembarked in Cadiz, conquered Seville (with the exception of its citadel) and attacked Córdoba itself. Thereafter he constructed a fleet and naval arsenal at Seville to repel future raids.

He responded to William of Septimania’s requests of assistance in his struggle against Charles the Bald’s nominations.

Called al-Nasir (“the Defender [of the Faith]”), he ascended the throne when he was twenty-two years of age and reigned for half a century as the most powerful prince of Iberia.[2] Although under his rule, people of all creeds enjoyed tolerance and freedom of religion, he repelled the Fatimids, partly by supporting their enemies in Ifriqiya, and partly by claiming the title Caliph (ruler of the Islamic world) for himself.

Abd ar-Rahman IV Mortada (عبدالرحمن) was the Caliph of Cordoba in the Umayyad dynasty of the Al-Andalus (Moorish Iberia), succeeding Suleiman II, in 1018. That same year, he was murdered at Cadiz while fleeing from a battle in which he had been deserted by the very supporters which had brought him into power. His brief reign was similar to that of Abd ar-Rahman V Mostadir.
