“He is Allah, other than whom none has the right to be worshipped. The King, the Holy, as-Salam, the Giver of Security, the Ever Watcher, the Almighty, the Compeller, the Supreme. Glory be to Allah! [High is He] above all that they associate as partners with Him.” (Surah al-Hashr :23)
All praises be to Allah, who is known by the Beautiful Name, al-Mutakabbir, the Supreme. He is the one who is above any evil, defect and deficiency due to His greatness and grandeur. He is the One who has power over everything. He reveals His greatness and power at every moment and in every incident. It is He Who gives life and death. He causes the earth to revolve around the sun, and the moon to revolve around the earth, at just the right speed and distance to sustain life. He can submerge an entire city in water in moments, or bring it to ruin with a devastating earthquake. We are powerless in the face of Allah’s supreme overwhelming power. He is al-Mutakabbir, the sole authority before Whom all will prostrate.
