if all the oceans where turned into ink, and all the trees into paper, you would not come remotely close to name all of Gods names and attributes.
exalted, infinitely exalted he is above any name or attribute associated with him.

I fully agree.

But as far as all the names and attributes of God that the human being have, are they're any list in baha'i scriptures of all of those names and attributes of God?

Just a quick question. Does anyone know where it is listed all the names and attributes of God?

Thank you.
I do not think there is an official list, many have worked on his over the years.

Names of God
The Greatest Name and the 99 Names of God

Be generous in prosperity, and thankful in adversity. Be worthy of the trust of thy neighbor, and look upon him with a bright and friendly face. Be a treasure to the poor, an admonisher to the rich, an answerer of the cry of the needy, a preserver of the sanctity of thy pledge. Be fair in thy judgment, and guarded in thy speech. Be unjust to no man, and show all meekness to all men. Be as a lamp unto them that walk in darkness, a joy to the sorrowful, a sea for the thirsty, a haven for the distressed, an upholder and defender of the victim of oppression. Let integrity and uprightness distinguish all thine acts. Be a home for the stranger, a balm to the suffering, a tower of strength for the fugitive. Be eyes to the blind, and a guiding light unto the feet of the erring. Be an ornament to the countenance of truth, a crown to the brow of fidelity, a pillar of the temple of righteousness, a breath of life to the body of mankind, an ensign of the hosts of justice, a luminary above the horizon of virtue, a dew to the soil of the human heart, an ark on the ocean of knowledge, a sun in the heaven of bounty, a gem on the diadem of wisdom, a shining light in the firmament of thy generation, a fruit upon the tree of humility.

Regards Tony

No.

You would not need just Baha'i Scriptures, if you want to find all the names and all the attributes, I think you need to look through every Scripture of each time and nation available.
