Al-Quddūs (The Most Holy)


Abdullah ibn Mushabbib al-Qahtāni

Go and buy today while the market is still there, while you can pay the price, and while the commodities cost little. There will come a day when this market and these commodities will not be available at any cost.

{...That is the Day of Deprivation...}[

Surat at-Taghābun: 9]

{And the Day the wrongdoer will bite on his hands [in regret]...}

[Surat al-Furqān: 27

If you depart without a provision of piety, you will be in deep regret.

naturally as breathing.

{Their call therein will be, “Glory be to You, O Allah,” and their greeting therein will be: “Peace.” And the last of their call will be: “Praise be to Allah, Lord of the worlds!”}

[Surat Yūnus:10]

Ibn Rajab (may Allah have mercy upon him) said:“Every deed comes to an end, except for the remembrance of Allah, which does not come to a halt. All deeds cease when the world ceases to exist,

and nothing of it will remain in the Hereafter, except for the remembrance of Allah. The believer lives, dies, and gets resurrected  upon the remembrance of Allah.” Glory be to the One Who is glorified by all creatures and all tongues. 

Glory be to Him for the favors He bestow supon us.Glory be to the One Who is glorified by those who knew that glorification of Him is one of the best means of protection. 

Glory be to the One Who disgra ces the sinners or forgives grave sins and minor ones if He so wills.

Glory be to the One from Whom we ask the forgiveness of a Mighty Lord and seek refuge from severe retribution.

May Allah make us among those who glorify Him and extend praise to Him, and among the believers in His names and attributes who believe in His Oneness and extol Him; indeed, He is All-Hearing, Near.

{So glorified is Allah when you reach the evening and when you reach the morning.And to Him is all praise throughout the heavens and the earth. And [glorified is He] at night and when you are at noon.}

[Surat ar-Rūm: 17-18]

Al-Quddūs (The Most Holy) Go and buy today while the market is still there, while you can pay the price, and while the commodities
cost little. There will come a day when this market and these commodities will not be available at any cost.

{...That is the Day of Deprivation...}

[Surat at-Taghābun: 9]

{And the Day the wrongdoer will bite on his hands [in regret]...}

[Surat al-Furqān: 27] 

If you depart without a provision of piety, you will be in deep regret.

And on the Day of Resurrection you will see those with adequate provisions and know that you did not work for this day.

Let us spend some time with one of the beautiful names of Allah that brings us closer to Him, comprises the essence of monotheism, and constitutes one of the two pillars of the Tawhīd of names and attributes; namely “Al-Quddūs” (the Most Holy).

Allah Almighty says:

{He is Allah, there is no god but Him, the King, the Most Holy...}[Surat al-

Hashr:23]

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

“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]

It is also reported that when the Prophet (may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him) finished the Witr prayer, he would say:

“Subhān Al-Malik Al-Quddūs,subhān Al-Malik Al-Quddūs, subhān Al-Malik Al-Quddūs (Glory be to the King, the Most Holy; glory be to the King, the Most Holy; glory be to the King, the Most Holy).” He would raise his voice in the third time.

[Narrated by Ahmad; Sahīh (authentic)]

Linguistically, “Quddūs” means purity and integrity. It also means the blessed one.

Our Lord is the Most Holy, the One free from deficiencies and defects and exalted above having a wife, children, or equals. He is praised with the mention of His virtues and merits and His perfect attributes.

Our Lord is the source of all blessing, Whose favors and gifts exist on earth and in the heavens in abundance and at all times. Blessed is His name and blessed are His act ions, essence, and sublime attributes. He is the One Who purifies whomever He wills from among His servants according to His wisdom.

{...Allah intends only to remove from you the impurity [of sin], O people of the [Prophet’s] household, and to purify you with [extensive] purification.}[Surat al-

Ahzāb: 33]
