The Truth,  The Reality,  The Just and Correct, The Truly Existing

The One who is the truth, the real, and the truly-existing. The One whose essence is the only substance and the only reality.

The One whose essence is wisdom, justice, right, rightness. The One who is just, right, proper, correct. The One whose essence is unavoidable.

The One who acts in accord with the needs of every situation. The One through whom all righteousness, justice, and truth are revealed.

From the root h-q-q which has the following classical Arabic connotations:

to be suitable to the requirements of wisdom, justice, truth or fact

to be true, right, correct, just, proper
to be genuine, authentic, real, sound, substantial
to be established, confirmed as fact
to be necessary, requisite, justified
to be unavoidable, inevitable, due
to be binding, obligatory, incumbent upon
to happen without doubt or uncertainty

This name is used in the Qur'ān. For example, see 22:62
