Dhut Tawl, Dhul Fadl

DHUT TAWL (ذو الطول) Owner of Bounty
DHUL FADL (ذوالفضل) Owner of Bounty
DHUL FADLIL ‘ADHIM (ذوالفضل العظيم) Owner of Great Bounty

Linguistically, DHU means “with, in, on,or of” but DHU in the holy Quran is translated as Lord of, Owner of, or Possessor of. DHUT TAWL is the One who gives His creation favors and there’s no way you can pay that no matter what you do. DHUL FADLIL (ADHIM) is the One who gives more than what is asked for, more than what He needs to give.
