I'm going to assume you're a Christian since you won't be able to find or formulate an Islamic argument on this topic against the ijma of Ahlus Sunnah - unless you are prepared to translate some texts from the 8th century.
>No not all take it literally.
So far the only people tossing around the word "literal" are you and a wiki article. Ahlus Sunnah is not literalist, we are realist. We believe in Allah swt and His self-described attributes.
This is the definition of literalism: "taking words in their usual or most basic sense without metaphor or allegory."
This is exactly what Christians do when they use God's attributes in the Old Testament in a banal, literal sense to support their preconceived notion that Jesus is Allah. That is literalism. Ahlus Sunnah does not engage in literalism nor dismissal of Allah's attributes.
While Allah attributes hands for Himself it must be emphasized that it is literally impossible for humans to conceive of them. So they are real hands that we can't conceive of. They are definitely not like anything human or any other form of creation. Allah holds our souls in His hand. Allah sees all with his eyes. Allah is all powerful, Allah is all hearing. Allah speaks. Allah created us with very limited faculties - in his image - so that we can better understand the power and majesty of Allah.
>Taking something metaphorically is not the same as taking it literally.
When I say Allah has a throne and two hands I am simply saying what Allah attributes to himself. The sahaba (ra) and their predecessors left the attributes of Allah alone as they had been reported. If we stick to the way that Allah describes himself without explanation/speculation we will always be safe from tajsim (anthropomorphism).
In the Quran Allah says He has a throne. Allah also says that throne encompasses the heavens and the earth. So how is that comparable to a throne for a human? It obviously isn't. But at the same time it is not only a metaphor.
We dare not liken Allah to His creation but neither do we dare deny His specific attributes - although they are unfathomable to us.
