​The meaning of “Subhaan-Allaah”

​The meaning of “Subhaan-Allaah”


بسم الله والحمد لله والصلاة والسلام على رسول الله ، وبعد

Shaikh Ibn al-`Uthaymeen رحمه الله:

Those who recite this Du`aa are many, but no one understands its meaning except for a very few.

“Subhaanakallaahumma”, meaning: I Glorify you O Allaah! The Glorification means Tanzeeh: to declare Allaah to be free of all imperfections and everything that is falsely attributed to Him and that does not suit His Majesty (such as attributing to Him a son, or trinity etc.).

There are two things which does not befit Allaah:

1) Equating Allaah with the creation.

2) Denying Allaah’s Attributes.

So when you say “Subhaanakallaahumma”, it is like saying: O Allaah! I declare you free from having any likeness with the creation or having any deficiencies in Your Attributes.
