The attributes of Allah Ta'ala

Q: I read this somewhere:

Also, As-Suddi said, "When a man would come to the two angels they would advise him, `Do not fall into disbelief. We are a test.' When the man would ignore their advice, they would say, `Go to that pile of ashes and urinate on it.' When he would urinate on the ashes, a light, meaning the light of faith, would depart from him and would shine until it entered heaven. Then something black that appeared to be smoke would descend and enter his ears and the rest of his body, and this is Allah's anger. Isn’t Allah’s Anger His Attribute alone so how would it enter a human being?

A: Everything that you have is from Allah Ta`ala. What you have is the creation of Allah. Like you have existence, then it is not its own, Allah created your existence and Allah's existence is eternal. Hence your existence is not coming from Allah's existence but He created your existence.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
