Answer

Praise be to Allaah.  Allaah is the Owner of Power, the Most Strong, i.e., He has immense Power.  He is All-Strong and All-Powerful; His Power never fails, and whatever He does, it never results in difficulty, discomfort or tiredness for Him. His Power is perfect and complete, it never wanes or decreases – exalted be Allaah far above such a thing.
