Al-‘Azīz (The All-Mighty)


Abdullah ibn Mushabbib al-Qahtāni

Al-Hākim mentioned in Al-Mustadrak that when ‘Umar ibnal-Khattāb (may Allah be pleased with him) reached the Levant, he came across a ford. Thereupon, he dismounted, took off his shoes, held the halter of his riding animal, and crossed the ford.

Seeing him, Abu ‘Ubaydah ibn al-Jarrāh said to him: “O Commander of the Believers, you have done something serious in the sight of the dwellers of the land! You have taken off your shoes, walked before your riding animal, and crossed the ford.”

In response, ‘Umar hit Abu ‘Ubaydah’s chest with his hand and said: “If only someone other than you had said it, O Abu ‘Ubaydah! 

You were the lowest of people, and Allah honored you with Islam. So, if you seek honor anywhere else, Allah Almighty will humiliate you.” 

Allah Almighty says:

{Whoever desires honor-then to Allah belongs all honor...}

[Surat Fātir: 10]

Praising Himself, Allah Almighty says:

{And indeed, your Lord -He is the All-Mighty, the Most-Merciful.}

[Suratash-Shu‘arā’: 9]

{...There is no god except Him, the All-Mighty, the All-Wise.}

[Surat Ᾱl-‘Imrān: 6]

Allah Almighty commands us from above the seven heavens to know that and take it for sure:

{...And know that Allah is All-Mighty, All-Wise.}

[Surat al-Baqarah: 260]

Our All-Mighty Lord, Who combines all meanings of honor in its most sublime and perfect form, says: 

{Whoever desires honor-then to Allah belongs all honor...}

[Surat Fātir: 10]

To Him belongs honor by way of dominance, as He is the Vanquisher of His enemies.

To Him belongs honor by way of invincibility, as none can reach Him for He is Self-Sufficient.

And to Him belongs honor by way of power, as all difficulties and hardships are humble and easy before Him for His strength.

He is the All -Mighty Lord Who grants might and honor to whomever He wills of His servants.

He is the All-Mighty Lord Whose close servants and allies cannot be defeated or humiliated.

He is the All-Mighty Lord, the Vanquisher, the Dominant, the Owner of absolute and perfect power. None can target Him with any harm or overcome Him.

How could anything target the All-Powerful Lord with any harm or overcome Him?! He is the All-Mighty, and His might and honor are  perfect in every way and free from any deficiency.
