The Qur'an mentions God's compassion and mercy 192 times, as opposed to God's wrath, which is mentioned only 17 times.

Two of God's main attributes are the "Compassionate" and the "Merciful." Both of these names denote God's love and care for all creation. These are the two most often mentioned names of God since all but one of the 114 chapters in the Qur'an begin with "In the name of God, the Compassionate, the Merciful."

The Qur'an cites 99 different names or attributes of God, many of which also emphasize these characteristics, including "the Loving," "the Giving," "the Forgiving" and "the Kind."
