Al-Majid – The Majestic One

In Arabic language, "majid" is glory; when combined with good deeds, a person's own prestige will be enhanced, so he will be called glorious. It also conveys the meanings of manliness, generosity, openhandedness, and gracious conduct.

Al-Majid connotes general honor or abundance of wealth. A man who is majeed is extremely generous. Al-Majid is glorified to the utmost extent of Glorification due to His own merits, qualities, and actions. He is also great in His attributes, beautiful in His power and authority. Al-Majid has the utmost limit of glory; His benevolence is great.

"They said, "Are you amazed at the decree of Allah? May the mercy of Allah and His blessings be upon you, people of the house. Indeed, He is Praiseworthy and Honorable." (Quran, 11:73)
