The lesson inherent in the words, Master of The Day of Judgment (1:3), is that the slave must acquire humility, and he must be just towards all, and always uphold justice, and always restrain himself from oppression and disobedience. He should reflect upon his preparations for the Last Day, and how sovereignty and power on that day will belong solely to Allah; this will be a Day when He will requite creation for their good and evil deeds, and this invokes praise for Allah.
The Quran says, It will be decided between them with justice and it will be said ‘All praise is for Allah, Lord of the worlds (39:75)
It is narrated that all of creation will praise Him that Day, the people of Paradise and the people of Hell for His justice and bounty. Hence, the words, All praise is for Allah, Lord of the worlds (1:1), describe the slave’s praise for Allah, whereupon He responds, ‘My salve has praised Me.’
So when the slave describes his Lord’s unique Kingship on that Day, for He is the Lord of the world and the Hereafter, the term is expressive of the Divine manifestation of Justice, Might, Majesty which will be apparent on that Day, as well as the truth of His Prophets. This praise is called Tamjeed (extolling).
Allah has said,
“My slave has extolled Me”
The meaning of the word Tamjeed conveys a meaning of praise evoked by contemplation of the Divine Majesty, Justice and Benevolence.
