(الرَّحْمَنِ) Ar-Rahmaan in Ch 17

17:0
بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَنِ الرَّحِيمِ
Here ar-rahmaan would be Allah’s womb like protection for his servant in 17/1 , taking him from masjid al-haram to the frontier of the system to witness signs.
17:110
قُلِ ادْعُوا اللَّهَ أَوِ ادْعُوا الرَّحْمَنَ أَيًّا مَا تَدْعُوا فَلَهُ الأَسْمَاءُ الْحُسْنَى وَلا تَجْهَرْ بِصَلاتِكَ وَلا تُخَافِتْ بِهَا وَابْتَغِ بَيْنَ ذَلِكَ سَبِيلا
Here ar-rahmaan is seen to be the name second only to Allah since we are to invoke Allah or ar-rahmaan. All the other beautiful names are mentioned separate from this. Ar-rahmaan here refers to 17/105-109 which is the reception of Quran and the submission to its revelation upon us. Once again, ar-rahmaan is very personal to the Reader.
