The attribute of “the Self” of Allah – Fatwas of Ibn Baz

Q: Is the attribute of (the Self) of Allah an attribute of Divine Essence?

A: This is true, Allah (Glorified be He) says about `Isa (Jesus) (peace be upon him) that he said: “You know what is in my inner-self though I do not know what is in Yours”[1]  i.e. the “Self of Allah”.

[1] Surah Al-Ma’idah, 5: 116
