The attributes are distinct from the Real Being in thought, but are identical with Him in fact and reality. For instance, the Real Being is omniscient in respect of His quality of knowledge; omnipotent in respect of His power; absolute in respect of His will. Doubtless, just as these attributes are distinct from each other in idea, according to their respective meanings, so they are distinct from the Real Being; but in fact and reality they are identical with Him. In other words, there are not in Him many existences, but only one sole existence, and his various names and attributes are merely His modes and aspects.

Pure is Thy essence from deficiency,
Expressed its “how” and “where” can never be;
Thy attributes appear distinct, but are
One with Thy essence in reality.
