عنوان مقاله [English]
One of the questions that is emphasized by Muslim philosophers is the infinity of essence and attribute’s God. This writing concerns with the etymology of infinity by considering various usages in the expressions of philosophers and theologians and mentioning some of its divisions. The result of this usages is that describing God to infinity is different in its essence and attributes. Our understanding of essence’s infinity is synoptic and negative. Nothing of the act’s attributes is infinite and however the infinity of essence’s attributes, such as living could be understand positively, is comprehensible positively, but essence knowledge is not actually infinite and just continually described to infinity.
