As-Subūh (The All-Glorious)

‘Abdullah ibn Mushabbib al-Qahtāni

Scholars said that Tawhīd of the names and attributes of Allah rests upon two foundations, which are the core of monotheism:

1. Establishing perfection in the names, attributes, and actions of Allah Almighty.

2. Exalting Allah far above any deficiency or defect that contradicts His perfect essence, attributes, and actions.
Out of Allah’s mercy towards us, He taught us how to extol and glorify Him. He says:

{And glorify Him in the morning and in the fternoon.}

[Surat al-Ahzāb: 42]

Glory be to the One Who is constantly glorified!

Glory be to the One Whose remembrance brings contentment!

Glory be to Him alone, and never to anyone else!

The Prophet (may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him) used to say during his bowing and prostration in prayer:

“Subbūhun Quddūs, Rabbu al-malā’ikati wa ar-rūh (the All-Glorious, the Most Holy, Lord of the angels and of the Spirit).” 

[Narrated by Muslim]

When we glorify Allah Almighty, this means we declare Him free from any deficiency or defect.

Indeed, our Lord is exalted above any defect or evil. To Him belongs the ultimate perfection
