al-Muta'āli audio caligraphy

The Supremely Exalted,  The Most High

The One who is exalted above all of creation.

The One who is beyond the highest.... beyond the beyond.

The One who far beyond any imagination, thought, limitation or ideal of mankind.

From the root 'a-l-w which has the following classical Arabic connotations:

to be high, elevated, lofty
to be exalted, to rise up, to ascend
to be higher to exceed, surpass
to overcome, overwhelm
to advance, promote, rise above
to mount, be overtop, eminent

This name is used in the Qur'ān. For example, see 13:9

The term al-Muta'āli is an intensified form of al-'Alī (the Exalted) which further exalts the exalted One.

(Also written as al-muta ali, al-muta aali , al muta al, the most high: ya muta ali, ya muta aali)
