Answer:
Attributes of Allah are divided into attributes of the Essence and attributes of the Acts. Attributes of the Essence are those describing the Essence of Allah. For example it is said that Allah is the Knower and Mighty. Attributes of the Acts are those relating to the acts done by the essence of Allah like creating and providing the daily bread. He is the creator because He has created the entire universe and He is the provider of the daily bread because He has provided the daily bread of people. (1)
