The Wisely Mighty because Al-Hakim is an adjective which describes Al-Azeez.
- The Arabic word Azeez signifies a mighty and powerful Being Whose decrees cannot be prevented from being enforced by any power in the world. Whom no one can oppose and resist. Who has to be obeyed by everyone whether one likes it or not. Whose rebel cannot escape His accountability and punishment in any way.
- Ibn Al-Qayyim wrote: “And He is Al-Azeez whose (status) cannot be reached (overcome). How can He be reached, the Owner of all power? And He is Al-Azeez, the Overpowering (Al-Qahir), the Subduing Overcomer. Nothing overcomes Him, and He is Al-Azeez, with Strength (Quwwah), the One Who is devoid of any deficiency.”
- The Arabic word Hakim signifies that whatever He does, He does it wisely. His creation, His administration and rule, and His commands and guidance all are based on wisdom. None of His works is tarnished by any trace of folly or ignorance.
