The Director to the Right Way, The Appointer of the Right Path, The Unerring Director
The One who unerringly decrees, appoints or ordains the right way. The One who is the supreme director to the right path and right belief.
The One who perfectly and righteously directs all matters toward their proper
conclusion. The One who needs no aid to direct all affairs rightly.
From the root r-sh-d which has the following classical Arabic connotations:
The name Rashīd is not specifically used as a Beautiful Name in the Qur'ān.
The name al-Rashīd, according to the dictionary Lisān al-'Arab by al-Mukarram, denotes:
Rashīd refers primarily to being directed to, or set upon, the appointed right path with supreme certainty of the intended outcome, while Hādī refers primarily to the continuing guidance, leadership and direction that is kindly provided to reach the path and also along the path until the goal is achieved.
The word murshid, meaning a director to the right path, is also derived from this same r-sh-d root.
(Also written as al-rashid, al-rasheed, Director to the Right Path: ya rashid, ya rasheed)
