(From the Al Quran)

He is of pure essence, free from all impurities, free from all defects, self-sufficient, self-subsiding, self-effulgent, light of all lights, possessing splendour and glory, self-dependent and ever-existing, an ever-living God, Omniscient, Omnipresent, imperishable even when all comes to naught. He is the beginning and the end, the manifest and the hidden, the Absolute and One indivisible, the minute of the minutest, the greatest of the great, the most intelligent, the most patient, the most magnificent, the most exalted, the high of the highest. He is beyond all attributive description, He who pervades the universe and whose knowledge extends over all; He who breathes life into the body and He who takes it away, He who created at the beginning and He who begins again with subsequent creation; He who watches everything and keeps everything within His knowledge.
