Al-Quddoos

Al-Quddoos — The Absolutely Pure, The All-Perfect. He is the One who is the absolutely pure in essence and attributes. Al-Quddoos is free from and far above any imperfection, error, facult and shortcoming. He is High Above what does not befit Him.

Al-Quddus

يُسَبِّحُ لِلَّهِ مَا فِي السَّمَاوَاتِ وَمَا فِي الْأَرْضِ الْمَلِكِ الْقُدُّوسِ الْعَزِيزِ الْحَكِيمِ – 62:1
Whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth is exalting Allah, the Sovereign, the Pure (Al-Quddus), the Exalted in Might, the Wise.

“Al-Quddus is the One who is free from every attribute which a sense might perceive, or imagination may conceive, or to which imagination may instinctively turn or by which the conscience may be moved, or which thinking demands. I do not say: free from defects and imperfections, for the mere mention of that borders on insult… I will rather say, the Holy (al-Quddus) is the one who transcends every one of the attributes of perfection which the majority of creatures think of as perfection.”
(Imam al-Ghazali)
