The Attributes of Allah

The scholars said that it is obligatory upon every mukallaf to know thirteen Attributes of Allah. They are: Existence, Oneness, Eternity, Everlastingness, Non-neediness of others, Power, Will, Knowledge, Hearing, Sight, Life, Speech, and Non-resemblance to the creation.

The explanation of these attributes is as follows:

1. Existence:
It is obligatory to believe that Allah exists and that there is no doubt in His Existence. He exists without a place. Time does not lapse on Allah.

2. Oneness:
Allah is One without any partners. He is One in His Self, His Attributes, and His Actions.

3. Eternity:
Allah is Eternal; there is no beginning to His Existence. He has existed since before the creation.

4. Everlastingness:
Allah is Everlasting; His existence does not come to an end. He does not perish.

5. Non-neediness of others:
Allah does not need any of His creations and they are all in need of Him.

6. Power:
Allah has Power over everything.

7. Will:
Everything that occurs in this world is by the Will of Allah.

8. Knowledge:
Allah knows about all things before they occur. Allah knows what happened, what is currently happening and what is going to happen in the future.

9. Hearing:
Allah hears all what is hearable, without an ear or any other organ.

10. Sight:
Allah sees all what is seeable, without a pupil or any other organ.

11. Life:
Allah is alive without a soul, skin, or heart. His Life is not similar to ours. He is alive and does not die.

12. Speech:
Allah's Speech is without a tongue or lip. His Speech is not in a language, Arabic or anything else. His Speech does not resemble the speech of the humans.

13. Non-resemblance to the creations:
Allah does not resemble the creations
