al-Mutakabbir audio caligraphy

The Supremely Great,  The Possessor of all Rights,  The Perfection of Greatness

The One who is supremely great. The One who is greater than all of creation.

The One who manifests greatness in all things and in all ways.

The One who has rights, privileges and attributes which others have not.
 

From the root k-b-r which has the following classical Arabic connotations:

to be great in size, rank or dignity
to be great in size, to be vast, formidable
to be great in age, oldest
to be great in dignity, noble, majestic
to be great in learning, most knowing
to have rights above all others

This name is used in the Qur'ân. For example, see 59:23

Mutakabbir is an empathic form of the root k-b-r which denotes actively using rights, privileges and attributes that are above and beyond the rights of everyone else. In mankind, this would be called pride or arrogance, but for the One this is simply the truth.

Al-Qurtubi reported that this name was understood to mean Grand, Great One.
