The moment you say "Allah & His attributes" or "Allah's attributes", you start creating a duality

I know Allah’s Essence and Attributes are one but we are not a manifestation of Allah because some of his nature that He attributed to us is limited but with Allah its unlimited. Rather we manifest a part of His nature not His full nature.

I again go back to the analogy of light. And now its time to understand the nature of reflection and the object reflecting the light. 

The more polished/clear/purer would be the object, the more perfectly it reflects light. To the extent that it reflects all of that which he is receiving. 
And as the object becomes dusty and rough, its reflection ability would be reduced. To the extent that at one point it stops reflecting the light. 

Another important point is that if an object does not emit its own light (which accounts for most objects in the world), it must reflect light in order to be seen. There are things which do not reflect light and hence cannot be seen e.g., air.

I don’t know, all we know is His 99 names which helps us understand Him and know His existence and obviously the Qur'an aswell, we only know a part of Him not Him fully we cannot fully comprehend Him.

All we know is that He is One & Only (Wahid o Ahad o Samad).  There is a duality between us & our attributes, but Allah's person and attributes are but One. 

 

Quote

The foremost in religion is the knowledge of Him, the perfection of knowing Him is to testify Him, the perfection of testifying Him is to believe in His Oneness, the perfection of believing in His Oneness is to adhere to Him purely, and the perfection of adhering to Him purely is to deny Him attributes.

So we are a reflection of Allah but we reflect a part of Him but we are not Him but we are slight dusty we don’t reflect that part of Him fully ,He has it unlimited we have it like limited. 

 

Here’s an analogy He gave us sight which He has but we have limbs to see He doesn’t our sight is limited His sight is not limited. 

Can it be said we are simlair to Him in a way?? or are we different.

مَثَلُ نُورِهِ كَمِشْكَاةٍ فِيهَا مِصْبَاحٌ
 a likeness of His light is as a niche in which is a lamp

What is the lamp?

Are there among His creations things which emits their own light? Granted to them by Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) as He alone is the source of all light. وَمَنْ لَمْ يَجْعَلِ اللَّهُ لَهُ نُورًا فَمَا لَهُ مِنْ نُورٍ

A lamb is used at night to give a bit of light that lights the whole room but not too bright.

the sun emits it’s own light which Allah has granted it, the moon emits it’s own light which Allah’s has granted it, some fish in the sea emit their own light which also Allah has granted it, the fire emits it’s own light which Allah has granted it. 

 

Allah has sight and we humans have sight but His sight is greater then ours, can it be said we are simlair to Him because we have sight and He has sight?

Are there anythings among His creation for whom He has used the phrase "Noor Allah" (Light of Allah)?

The Prophet (saws) and his progeny, and also Isa(jesus) (عليه السلام) he is the lamb of God in the gospel. Is that what your referring to?

Identity wise we are Human and worth wise we are dear to Allah since we are the best creation. Is that what your referring to, am I correct ?
