[26:192]

ALLAH'S Name al-'Azîm 


The Supreme Glory, The Mighty Splendor, The Most Grand, The Greatest

The One who is greatest, mightiest, grandest and above all.

The One who is of the greatest importance.

The One who is magnificent, vast and most revered.

The One who is of perfect and absolute greatness.


From the root 'a-z-m which has the following classical Arabic connotations:

to be great, large, big
to be vast, huge, enormous
to be great in rank, importance or dignity
to be imposing, powerful, superior
to be magnificent, honored, revered, sublime
to be immense, stupendous, lofty
to be above imperfection

This name is used in the Qur'ân. For example, see 2:255

Note that the Arabic letter z sounds nothing at all like the English letter z, but rather is a open-jaw "th" sound.
