Al-Qaahir: The Supreme!

 

Suuratul An’aam Verse 61.

وَهُوَ ٱلْقَاهِرُ فَوْقَ عِبَادِهِۦ ۖ وَيُرْسِلُ عَلَيْكُمْ حَفَظَةً حَتَّىٰٓ إِذَا جَآءَ أَحَدَكُمُ ٱلْمَوْتُ تَوَفَّتْهُ رُسُلُنَا وَهُمْ لَا يُفَرِّطُونَ ﴿٦١

61. He is the Irresistible, Supreme over His slaves, and He sends guardians (angels guarding and writing all of one’s good and bad deeds) over you, until when death approaches one of you, Our Messengers (angel of death and his assistants) take his soul, and they never neglect their duty.

Tafsir Ibn Kathir

Allah’s statement,

 

﴿وَهُوَ الْقَاهِرُ فَوْقَ عِبَادِهِ﴾

 (He is the Qahir over His servants.)

 

The Qahir means, the one who controls everything, all are subservient to His supreme grace, greatness and majesty,

 

﴿وَيُرْسِلُ عَلَيْكُم حَفَظَةً﴾

(and He sends guardians over you,) angels who guard mankind.

 

In another Ayah, Allah said;

﴿وَهُوَ الْقَاهِرُ فَوْقَ عِبَادِهِ﴾

 (And He is the Irresistible, above His servants,)

 

meaning to Him the necks are subservient, the tyrants humble before Him and He has complete control over all things. The creatures have all bowed to Allah and are humbled before His grace, honor, pride, greatness, highness and ability over all things. The creatures are insignificant before Him, for they are all under His irresistible decision and power.
