Allah the Most High is the Lord and owner of the universe. He is one and without any rival. He does not have any partner. He is unique and incomparable. His incomparable feature is explicit in His very name Allah. The word Allah (الله) is Arabic. No language of the world contains its exact synonyms. It has got no plural form, no male-female form. This word is both unique and incomparable. So Allah is the Most High. He is one and only in his essence and attributes. There is nothing as His rival or equivalent. Allah the Most High declares -

 قُلْ هُوَ اللَّهُ أَحَدٌ ﴿١﴾ اللَّهُ الصَّمَدُ ﴿٢﴾ لَمْ يَلِدْ وَلَمْ يُولَدْ ﴿٣﴾ وَلَمْ يَكُن لَّهُ كُفُوًا أَحَدٌ ﴿٤

Meaning: "Speak, (O Prophet) He is Allah, one and only. He is not dependent on anyone, all are dependent on Him. He begets none, nor is He begotten. And there is none like unto Him." (Sura: Al-Ikhlas, Ayat: 1-4)

Allah is a self-sufficient entity. He is without a beginning and without an end. He is everlasting and omnipresent. He is absolutely free from such needs as food, drink, sleep, drowsiness, fatigue, etc. Allah the Most High says:

هُوَ ٱلْأَوَّلُ وَٱلْـَٔاخِرُ وَٱلظَّـٰهِرُ وَٱلْبَاطِنُ ۖ وَهُوَ بِكُلِّ شَىْءٍ عَلِيمٌ

Meaning: "He is the first. He is the last. He is Manifest. He is concealed and He is well-conversant in all matters." (Sura: Al-Hadid, Ayat: 3)

In another place Allah the Most High declares -

ٱللَّهُ لَآ إِلَـٰهَ إِلَّا هُوَ ٱلْحَىُّ ٱلْقَيُّومُ ۚ لَا تَأْخُذُهُۥ سِنَةٌۭ وَلَا نَوْمٌۭ ۚ لَّهُۥ مَا فِى ٱلسَّمَـٰوَٰتِ وَمَا فِى ٱلْأَرْضِ 
Meaning: "He is Allah, there in none except Him worthy of worship. He is ever living and sustains all other things. Sleep or drowsiness can never touch him. Everything in heaven and on earth is subservient to Him." (Sura: Al-Baqara, Ayat: 255)

Allah the Most High is the repository of all virtues. All dwell in Him in the fullest measure. He is the Creator. The universe with all its properties is His creation. He is the sustainer. All creatures are dependent on him for sustenance. He is omnipotent and all-pervasive. All things are nicely and orderly operating under His direction. In a word, He is the one possessing all attributes. His attributes are boundless. All the beautiful and sacred names are reserved for Him. Some such attribute names of His are-Rahim, (the Most Merciful), Jabbar (the Compeller), Ghaffar (the extreme Forgiver), Basir (the All-seeing), Samiu (the All-hearing), Aliyu (the Most High/great), Hafeez (the best Preserver/Protector).

In fact, Allah the Most High is one and unique in His essence and attributes. He has got no partners, All praises are due to Him. The only entity worthy of worship is He.
