Explanation of Al-Qahhaar from Understand Quran Academy + How to apply it to our lives:


The names Al-Qahhaar and Al-Lateef (subtle, refined) are sometimes used together to honor and reveal the opposing yet complementary ways of the One. He is The Subduer, but also The Most Wise and the Most Just. He’s never unfair, so be reassured. …more.

Explanation of Al-Qahhaar by Ilm Fruits


The root word for ٱلۡقَهَّارُ is قَهر which is defined as:

  1. to compel something or someone against his/her wishes
  2. to subdue
  3. to overcome
  4. to force [1]

Thus, with regards to Allah (سبحانه وتعال), the noble name Al-Qahhar can be translated as “the Subduer, i.e. the Subduer of His creatures by His sovereign authority and power and the Disposer of them as He pleases, with and against their will.”  …more

Duaa mentioning the Name, Al-Qahhaar:


Aisha narrated that the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) used to say at night if he turned during sleep:

“None has the right to be worshipped except Allah, The One, The Subjugator. Lord of the heavens and the Earth and all between them, The Exalted in Might, The Oft-Forgiving.

Note: The Subjugator; Al-Qahhar means the One Who has subdued all of creation and Whom all of creation are subservient to. All movements occur by His will.”


Laa ilaaha ill-allaahul-waaḥidul-qahhaar, rabbus-samaawaati wal-arḍi wa maa baynahumal-‛azeezul-ghaffaar.  …more.
