  • Do The Attributes Of God Have An Additional Existence?

    Posted by Aayan Zubairi on August 24, 2022 at 8:05 am

    Salam,

    God has said in The Quran, “He is One and Alone.” (112:1), so when we say that God has a being and attributes, aren’t we splitting His existence into 2? Similar to the trinity?

    Being is with its attributes. you are your attributes are not two things though we may count them two but in fact they are one. A being is recognised with its attributes.

      Precisely. So the question arises, when Ghamidi sahab writes in Mizan (eng) that everything that exists is a manifestation of God’s attribute of mercy, isn’t Ghamid sahab saying that God manifested His being?

    He did manifest Himself through the signs of His creation. These are only the attributes which can introduce Him to us.
