Explanation of the Name, Al-A’laa, from Ahadun Ahad:

Excerpt:

The Most High One who is above all others. There is no one who is equal or even comparable to Him. He is also free from any supposed evil, and from what heretics and disbelievers may say about Him. To Him belongs highness in all of its aspects: Highness of His Essence, Highness of His Attributes and esteem, Highness of Strength and Power. He is the One Who has risen over His Throne and the One Who Has encompassed the dominion. He is the One in Whom all the attributes of greatness, grandness, magnificence and beauty find perfection and fulfillment. The One Who is Most High; an absolute Highness in every sense.

His Self is High above His creation—He ascended the ‘Arsh (Throne). His Attributes are High in degree, rank, magnificence, and are evident in their perfection. He has the Highest, greatest level of all of them, and there is nothing like unto Him in all of His Attributes. No one comprehends the state or the manner of any of His Attributes. He is Most High by being dominant over all His slaves; the One Who Has subdued all of His creatures—everything is subservient to His will and authority. Nothing occurs nor ceases to occur except by His leave. His subduing necessitates His Living, His Might, His sovereign authority, ability, wisdom, and knowledge, all of which are His Attributes.
