Al Jabbar The compeller or the reformer or the restorer or the One who fixes. To compel is to make something happen. Interestingly enough, when the root of this word is used for mankind in Quran it’s used with negative context referring to tyrannical behavior. But when it’s used for Allah it is positive which makes me ponder on mankinds incessant need to ram their systems down people’s throat and how it breaks people, cultures, self esteem etc. Yet Allah relates his compelling or making things happen with fixing the situation. Maybe we should seek to compel less and leave more to “the compeller” And Allah knows best.
