Subhan'Allah

Subhan'All h (Arabic ) is an Arabic phrase often translated as "Glorious is God."

Mohammed bin AbeeBakr Abdulqader al-Razee said in his book Mukhtar al-Sihah (one of the classic Arabic-wordbooks):

The meaning of subhanallah is making God pure, and it is bound to its original word (sabh, meaning void) as if he said, I verily absolve God from all evil.

The origin for the word is sabh - voidness - or tasbeeh - making something void - so the literal meaning of the phrase is God is devoid. There is a part of the word that is unpronounced, which is the way that it is used in the Quran, which translates to "void of all evil". For example it says; "SubhanAllahi ammaa yasifoon - Void/Free is Allah from that (evil) which they ascribe (to Him)" and "SubhanAllah ammaa yushrikoon" - Free is God from what they associate with him."

It is also often cited during the Islamic prayer (salat), or during the sermon (khutba) in the mosques.

The statement of "Subhan'allah" testifies one's removing any anthropomorphic elements or associations with God, as al-Razi says in his Mukhtar al-Sihah, ( tanziyh). "SubhanAllah meaning is Glory be to Allah"

It seems that the Christian counterpart is "Hallowed be your name".

Reference:

Qul hathihi sabeelee adAAoo ila Allahi AAala baseeratin ana wamani ittabaAAanee wasubhana Allahi wama ana mina almushrikeena

12:108 Say, "This is my way; I invite to Allah with insight, I and those who follow me. And exalted is Allah ; and I am not of those who associate others with Him."

The meaning of SubhanAllah is "Glory be to Allah".

Say, "This is my way; I invite to Allah with insight, I and those who follow me. And exalted is Allah ; and I am not of those who associate others with Him." Al-Quran 12:108

But when he came to the (fire), a voice was heard: "Blessed are those in the fire and those around: and glory to Allah, the Lord of the worlds. Al-Quran 27:8

Subhan'Allah is also part of the tasbeeh which is read 33times. It is said as a way to gain rewards and become closer to Alah.
