Similarly, which it can be inferred that

Similarly, there are
many more verses from which it can be inferred that He is the only authority in
Power to Whom belongs the sovereignty.
As evaluated by Hashim Y. Al-Mallah, the supreme dominion of the Almighty can
be understood through the following dimensions through the Qur’an:

 Universal: “O Allah, Owner of Sovereignty, You give
sovereignty to whom You will and You take sovereignty away from whom You will. You honor whom You will and You humble whom You
will. In
Your hand is all good. Indeed, You are over all things competent.i

Absolute: “Indeed,
Our word to a thing when We intend it is but that We say to it, “Be,” and it is.”ii

Permanent: “Whatever is in the heavens and earth exalts Allah, and He is the Exalted in
Might, the Wise, His is the
dominion of the heavens and earth. He gives life and causes death, and He is over all things
competent, He is
the First and the Last, the Ascendant and the Intimate, and He is, of all
things, knowing.”iii

Indivisible: And
they say, “The Most Merciful has taken a son.” Exalted is He! Rather, they are but honored servants, they cannot precede Him in word, and they act
by His command, He knows
what is presently before them and what will be after them, and they
cannot intercede except on behalf of one whom He approves. And they, from fear of Him, are apprehensive, And whoever of them should say, “Indeed, I am a god besides Him”- that one We would recompense with Hell. Thus do We recompense the wrongdoers.”iv

Inalienable: “He is Allah, who is One, Allah, the Eternal
Refuge, He neither begets nor is born, Nor
is there to Him any equivalent.”v

Further, this
sovereignty subdues the creation to obey His commands as His commands
inevitably are the most high. This supreme law demands an unadulterated submission and any will
against the Divine law is a deviation from the right path. No one can transgress the limits that have been
set by the Almighty for the regulation of human life as it is also asserted in
the Qur’an.vi

Say, “Indeed, the matter belongs completely to Allah.”vii

 

It is not for a
believing man or a believing woman, when Allah and His Messenger have decided a
matter, that they should thereafter have any choice about their affair. And whoever disobeys Allah and His Messenger has
certainly strayed into clear error.viii
