Allah's main Attributes

Q 1: Is it permissible for people to say there are 20 Attributes of Allah that must be confirmed to Him and they include the Existence, Eternity, Everlastingness, Non-resemblance to creatures, Oneness and others?

A: It is necessary to confirm all the Attributes Allah has attributed to Himself in the Qur'an and which are confirmed to Him by the Messenger (peace be upon him) in the Sunnah (whatever is reported from the Prophet). However, the Attributes of Allah must not be limited to seven, fourteen or twenty, as this is the claim of followers of Al-Asha`irah sect. This claim is baseless and it is not permissible to believe in or follow it.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
