عَالِمِ ٱلْغَيْبِ وَٱلشَّهَادَةِ فَتَعَالَىٰ عَمَّا يُشْرِكُونَ
-Al-Mu’minûn ( المؤمنون )

Tafsir al-Jalalayn

Knower of the Unseen and the visible, what is hidden and what is observed ([if] read in the genitive [‘ālimi’l-ghaybi, ‘Knower of the Unseen’], this is an adjectival qualification; [if] in the nominative [‘ālimu’l-ghaybi, ‘the Knower of the Unseen], this would be the predicate of an implied [preceding] huwa, ‘He is’) and exalted, magnified, be He above what they associate!, with Him [of partners].
