The Name of Allah- العزيز has been mentioned in the Qur’an over 90 times. It means that all strength, might, glory, honour, belongs to Allah. He’s dominant over His creation. Nothing can happen without His permission and will. He is perfect in all aspects. Nothing can touch Him with harm. No one can prevent Him from fulfilling His promises. He is unique in His attributes.
When we internalize these facts about Allah, we’d seek honour, glory, support from the One who owns it. He is العزيز, the One who grants the glory, power, victory, and no one else.
Allah defamed the hypocrites in سورة النساء and سورة المائدة for seeking عزة from the disbelievers instead of Allah, and warns us against being like them. If you truly want Allah to honour you, ally with the believers.
