Quora Answer: Can We Say Allah (s.w.t.) is Not Limited to Only 99 Attributes?

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ 

The following is my answer to a Quora question: “Can we say that Allah (s.w.t.) is not limited to just 99 Attributes? 

An Unlimited God does not have a limited number of Attributes.  The 99 Attributes Mentioned in the Qur’an are for us to relate to the Divine Nature according to our capacity.  All Creation is a reflection of the Attributes, since it is impossible for us to have an attribute that Allah (s.w.t.) does not Possess.  As such, we are kind because Allah (s.w.t.) is Absolutely Kind, and we are just because Allah (s.w.t.) is Absolutely Just.
