Islam: " In Islamic theology and metaphysics a distinction is made between God in Himself, or the divine Essence (dhat), and God as He describes Himself in revelation. Thus in the Koran God calls Himself by many Names, such as the "Merciful," the "All-Knowing," the "Living," the "All-Powerful."From those Names (asma') we understand that He possesses the Attributes (sifat) of Mercy, Knowledge, Life, and Power.
