“The Qur’an continually states that Allah is able to do all things (omnipotent). 22:6, 46:33, 57:1-5, 64:1-4 …”

Just to explain the verses quoted by you.

I have checked all the above verses using the same attribute of God ”qadīr” with the word “shayʾin”.

I take the first please mentioned by you “22:6”; and that will explain all the verses quoted by you.

dhālika bi-ʾanna llāha huwa l-ḥaqqu wa-ʾannahū yuḥyi l-mawtā wa-ʾannahū ʿalā kulli *shayʾin qadīrun

[22:7] That is because Allah is the Truth, and that it is He Who brings the dead to life, and that He has power over all *things;

*The Arabic word “shayʾin” is from the root word sh-y-e, means doing things which is unblemished to do and not doing a thing which is blemished to do.

Since God’s attributes are holy, unblemished and perfect; He is above all such unwise questions.

Thanks and regards

P.S. Sorry John some words did not appear in the previous comments; so I have to post it again. Please delete the previous comments just posted by me some minutes ago.
