AL-QAHHAR-The Subduer, The Ever-Dominating The All-Prevailing One

The One Who dominates everything in His kingdom. He is the One before whom the whole creation has humbled itself, and submitted before His Grandeur, power and perfect strength. He is the Vanquisher without ever being unfair. The One who has the perfect Power and is not unable over anything.
Allah, Exalted be He, says, “He is the Irresistible, [reigns Supreme) Above His servants.” (Surat Al-An’aam, 6:61); Say: “Allah is the Creator of everything, and He is the One, the All- Dominant.’ ” (Surat Ar-Ra’d, 13:16)
Allah overcomes all obstacles and prevails over all His creation. Everything is subjected to His will and authority. These names include the attributes of power, honour and omnipotence.

Benefits of belief in these names include the following:

>Allah is One and has no equal. This requires that we should do everything for His sake and worship none but Him.
Having one’s heart attached to Allah alone, relying completely on Him in all matters and not blindly relying on material means.
Extolling Allah and fearing Him alone.
Admitting one’s weakness before Allah, the All-Dominant, the Irresistible. This requires that we should humble ourselves before Allah and refrain from behaving arrogantly towards His slaves.
The verse “He is the Irresistible, [reigns Supreme] Above His servants” indicates that Allah, Exalted be He, is high above His creation.

The One who is victorious over any opposition. The One whose will is irresistible.

The One who is dominant. The Ever-Dominating One.
