Does Allah possess the attribute of Silence? Shaikh Muqbil ibn Hadi al-Waad’iee

QuestionDo you believe that Allah has the attribute of silence (السكوت) and some of the Salaf have affirmed it and used as evidence many Ahaadith from them: 
وما سكت عنه فهو عفو 
“What ever he (Allah) is silent about is pardoned”  [Hadith -sunan abi dawood]
Answer: Yes, that which is apparent is that Allah subhaanahu is described with silence, a silence befitting his majesty, subhanahu wa ta’ala because the Ahaadith collectively are upright for using as evidence. 
and with Allah aid is sought.
Translated by Faisal ibn Abdul Qaadir ibn Hasan Abu Sulaymaan
