The Ever-Dominating,  The Conqueror,  The Prevailer

The One who prevails over all of creation. The One who overcomes all obstacles.

The One who is victorious over any opposition. The One whose will is irresistible.

The One who is dominant. The Ever-Dominating One.

The One who is master of all. The One to whom all submit.

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

to overcome, conquer
to overpower, master
to dominate over, prevail
to subdue, subjugate,
to compel against one's wishes

This name is used in the Qur'ān. For example, see 39:4

The names Qahhār (ever-dominating, overpowering) and Latīf (subtle, refined) are sometimes used together to honor and appreciate the opposing, yet complementary, ways of the One.
