Meaning of Bismillah ar-Rahman ar-Raheem (In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful)

حدثنا أبي - رحمه الله - قال: حدثنا سعد بن عبدالله، عن أحمد بن محمد بن عيسى، عن القاسم بن يحيى، عن جده الحسن بن راشد، عن عبدالله بن سنان، عن أبي عبدالله عليه السلام قال: سألته عن " بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم " فقال عليه السلام: الباء بهاء االله، والسين سناء الله، والميم مجد الله - وروى بعضهم ملك الله -، والله إله كل شئ، [ و ] الرحمن لجميع العالم والرحيم بالمؤمنين خاصة

My father - may Allah have mercy on him - narrated to us; he said: Sa`d b. `Abdullah narrated to us from Ahmad b. Muhammad b.`Isa from Qasim b. Yahya from his grandfather Hasan b. Rashid from `Abdullah b. Sinan, from Abi `Abdillah (al-Sadiq) [a]. He said: I asked him [a] about Bismillah ar-Rahman ar-Raheem. He replied:
“The baa’ is for Allah’s brilliance (Bahaa’ Allah) and the seen is for Allah’s sublimity (Sanaa’ Allah) and the meem is for Allah’s glory (Majd Allah) -- and some others have narrated: Allah’s Kingdom (Mulk Allah) -- And Allah (means) the God of all things, the Beneficent (Rahman) towards the entire world and the Merciful (Raheem) for the select faithful.”.
