Creator of everything

[6:102] Such is God your Lord, there is no God except He, the Creator of all things. You shall worship Him alone. He is in control of all things.
[35:3] O people, remember God's blessings upon you.  Is there any creator other than God who provides for you from the heaven and the earth? There is no other God beside Him. How could you deviate?
[39:62 ] God is the Creator of all things,  and He is in full control of all things.
[55:3]  Creator of the human beings.
[59:24] He is the One God; the Creator, the Initiator, the Designer. To Him belong the most beautiful names. Glorifying Him is everything in the heavens and the earth. He is the Almighty, Most Wise.

Controls everything

[3:109] To God belongs everything in the heavens and everything on earth, and all matters are controlled by God.
[4:85] Whoever mediates a good deed receives a share of the credit thereof, and whoever mediates an evil work, incurs a share thereof. God controls all things.
[6:102] Such is God your Lord, there is no God except He, the Creator of all things. You shall worship Him alone. He is in control of all things.
[7:54] Your Lord is the one God, who created the heavens and the earth in six days, then assumed all authority. The night overtakes the day, as it pursues it persistently, and the
sun, the moon, and the stars are committed to serve by His command. Absolutely, He controls all creation and all commands. Most Exalted is God, Lord of the universe

Omniscient, Omnipotent, Omnipresent

[2:186] When My servants ask you about Me, I am always near. I answer their prayers when they pray to Me. The people shall respond to Me and believe in Me, in order to be guided
[2:115]  To GOD belongs the east and the west; wherever you go there will be the presence of GOD. GOD is Omnipresent, Omniscient.
[2:256]  There shall be no compulsion in religion: the right way is now distinct from the wrong way. Anyone who denounces the devil and believes in GOD has grasped the strongest bond; one that never breaks. GOD is Hearer, Omniscient.

Sustainer

[2:22]  The One who made the earth habitable for you, and the sky a structure. He sends down from the sky water, to produce all kinds of fruits for your sustenance. You shall not set up idols to rival GOD, now that you know.
 [91:6] The earth and Him who sustains it.

Most Gracious, Most Merciful

[1:1-4] In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful. Praise be to God, Lord of the universe.
Most Gracious, Most Merciful. Master of the Day of Judgment.
[2:163]  Your god is one god; there is no god but He, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.

No intercession

[2:48] Beware of the day when no soul can avail another soul, no intercession will be accepted, no ransom can be paid, nor can anyone be helped.
[2:123] Beware of the day when no soul will help another soul, no ransom will be accepted, no intercession will be useful, and no one will be helped.
[34:23] Intercession with Him will be in vain, unless it  coincides with His will. When their minds are finally settled down, and they ask, "What did your Lord say," they will say, "The truth." He is the Most High, the Most Great.

Knower our thoughts

[2:284] To God belongs everything in the heavens and the earth. Whether you declare your innermost thoughts, or keep them hidden, God holds you responsible for them. He forgives
whomever He wills, and punishes whomever He wills. God is Omnipotent.
[4:63] God is fully aware of their innermost intentions. You shall ignore them, enlighten them, and give them good advice that may save their souls.
[13:9]  The Knower of all secrets and declarations; the Supreme, the Most High.
[13:10]  It is the same whether you conceal your thoughts, or declare them, or hide in the darkness of the night, or act in the daylight.

Protector

[4:132] To GOD belongs everything in the heavens and the earth, and GOD is the only Protector.
