AL-‘ALEE-The Most High, The Exalted The Sublime One

The One Who is above and exceeds all others, there is nothing and no-one above Him. His Loftiness is absolutely perfect. He is the Highest. AI-‘Alee is above and surpasses all that has ever been, all that there now is, and all that shall ever be. The One who is clear from the attributes of the creatures.
Allah, Exalted be He, says,
“…He is the Most High, the Magnificent.”

(Surat Al-Baqarah, 2:255). He also says, “He is the Knower of the unseen and the visible, the All-Great, the Exalted.” (Surat Ar-Ra’d, 13:9).

Allah has absolute highness above all else, regarding His Supreme Being, ability, subjugation of His creatures and His attributes. He has established Himself over the Mighty Throne in a manner that befits His majesty and manages all affairs, Glorified and Sublime be He. He is high above His creation and everything and everyone is under His absolute control and superior authority.

Benefits of belief in these names include the following:

Showing total humility to Allah, Exalted be He, out of love and veneration, which are the two pillars of worship in Islam. It is for this reason that when Allah, Exalted be He, revealed the verse, “Glorify the name of your Lord, the Most High…” (Surat Al-A’laa, 87:1), the Prophet (may Allah bless him and grant him peace) said, “Say this in your prostrations.” (Reported by Ahmad and Abu Daawood).
Exalting Allah and humbling ourselves before Him and for the truth He has sent down.
Refraining from exalting ourselves in the land, oppressing people, looking down on them, behaving arrogantly towards them and harming them.
Fearing none but Allah and not fearing anyone no matter how important he may be, for Allah, Exalted be He, is above all.
Declaring Allah free of any imperfections in His Supreme Being, attributes and actions, affirming the attributes of perfection to Him and praising Him for them.

The One Who is above and exceeds all others. The Most High, above whom there is nothing higher.
