Allah’s Name, Al-Mutakabbir, expresses the quality of Supremacy, with rank and attributes that are beyond the rights of everyone else. However, when ‘mutakabbir’ is applied to human beings it takes on a very negative meaning. Allah describes people as ‘mutakabbireen’ (the arrogant) several times in the Quran. It refers to the fact they have arrogance in their hearts and actions towards Allah, by disbelieving in His Signs. Further, they are arrogant to other people by looking down on them. Only Allaah is al-Mutakabbir, in a positive sense. Thus, in understanding the Name ‘Al-Mutakabbir’ as it relates to us, it holds a quality that we should avoid as human beings, one of arrogance and undeserving pride. What is the opposite of kibr (arrogance)? It is humility; the adornment of a believer. Today’s ACTION CHALLENGE will help you practice humility, insha’Allah!
