Ramadan Day 15: Resetting our Soul


(The All-Prevailing One)
The Dominantor, The Irrestible, The Subduer
1. Allah سُبْحَٰنَهُۥ وَتَعَٰلَىٰ is Al-Qahhar (in Arabic: ٱلْقَهَّارُ), meaning the one who prevails over all creation.
2. The universe runs according to the laws laid down by Allah سُبْحَٰنَهُۥ وَتَعَٰلَىٰ.
3. He is dominant, the master of all, and is victorious over all opposition.
4. He has the perfect Power and is not unable over anything.

Arabic Root:
1. From the root qaf-ha-ra (ق ه ر), which has the following classical Arabic connotations: to overcome, conquer to overpower, master to dominate over, prevail to subdue, subjugate, to compel against one’s wishes.
2. The names Al-Qahhar and Al-Qahir:�There are two names, Al-Qahir, and Al-Qahhar. The name Al-Qahir is the base form meaning “the irresistible.” On the other hand, Al-Qahhar is more emphatic, the one who is all over-powering, all-prevailing.
3. Al-Qahir is mentioned twice in the Qur’an in Surah al-An’am verse 18 and verse 61. while Al-Qahhar is used more intensively, mentioned a total of 6 times.

1. In using this beautiful name of Allah سُبْحَٰنَهُۥ وَتَعَٰلَىٰ in your supplication, you can have the assurance that the most powerful is with you.
2. If Allah سُبْحَٰنَهُۥ وَتَعَٰلَىٰ is with you, just as He was with Prophet Musa (as) when he stood against Firawn, or when Prophet Muhammad ﷺ was being persecuted by the Meccans, or when Prophet Dawud (as) fought and won the battle against Jalut, then nothing can overpower you. “If Allah should aid you, no one can overcome you.

How we call upon Al-Qahhaar ,The Subduer, The Ever-Dominating
* O Allah, Al-Qahhaar, we know that You overpower everything.
* Ya Allah! You are Al Qahhar . Make us of those who bow to You in Islam and adorn us with apprehension of You
* Ya Allah ! Aid us to surrender our hearts and our actions to You only. Make us ponder Your power, abandon our sins, and be kind to the weak, Ameen!
