  • Azz, Izzah, Uzza, Azeez - In the Qur'aan we find that there are many terms that are derived from the term 'azz'. In this PDF we find out azz means power, honour aswell as to disempower; we find that Izzah means self-honor aswell as ignomity - depending on the context. You will learn why the Quraysh referred to one of their idols as 'Uzza' [which also contains the same root letters], why the king at the time of Yusuf was referred to as 'azeez' and most importantly why one of the characterisitics and names of ALlah is 'Al Azeez'.
