"Allah is but one God. To Him belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth. And sufficient is Allah as Disposer of affairs." [4:171]

Christian, this is the established belief of all Muslims.

Allah has two hands.

Allah has a throne.

All muslims agree on this because It is revealed in the Quran. All muslims agree it is not like a throne for a man or a hand of a man. This is because pic related. The difference is some muslim scholars philosophize and speculate whereas other muslim scholars refrain from doing so and are content with the apparent meaning.

No not all take it literally.

Taking something metaphorically is not the same as taking it literally.

There is nothing like God so he can't have literal hands and sit on a throne literally otherwise he is comparable to persons. Whether they are human hands or non-human hands doesn't make a difference hands make him comparable, like a created thing.

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.

We know he has hands but we don't know how are these hands. we know he sits on a throne but we don't know how does he sit on a throne or how is this throne. We just say he does and nothing more.

What I find so funny is when a salafi Sheikh says Allah has a hand, laymen go nuts. But when a sufi Sheikh says the same exact thing - laymen are quiet. There is consensus on this issue among all Sunni shuyukh, although the average Muslims may not understand there is no blame on them. But there is blame on those who speak brazenly with no understanding.

the hand analogy is interesting because two hands would have to be distinct yet part of God somehow.

Can't remember where I read it but some Christian saints described "the Son" and the "holy spirit" as God's hands, the mediums he uses to work with the world and interact with it. They are distinct from him yet still him. Makes you think.


because sufis are known for their generous and symbolic interpretations.

Allah's hands can enter creation but Allah can't. Makes confusing sense.

Are you philosophers both done speaking about your Creator without knowledge? Are you both done trying to use the Quran to support Christian shirk?

yes, yes you are

There is only One Allah and he transcends the world, and then there are his two eternal Hands which enter Creation and manipulate it, and these three are One.

That poster was trying to use a kalam argument for the trinity which is itself a kalam (platonic) argument. They were suggesting the hands of Allah form the two parts of trinity audhobillah.

Denying Allah's self-described attributes is blatant kufr. You have no argument to make or scholars to cite. Why are you pretending to have knowledge?

fd4854 No.22080

The Quran is divided into two parts, the Muhkam (plain and clear) verses and Mutassyabih (allegorical) verses. The Muhkam part is always about the Sharia (solah, sawm, hajj, etc), while the Mutassyabih is always about divine wisdom (yusuf's biography, two gardens, khidr, etc).

If we do not and cannot know something which Allah had described (such as Allah's exalted Self), then we say Allah knows best.

In the end, Allah created everything in existence; including time and space. That means Allah is beyond the constraints of both time and space. We can't even imagine ourselves existing outside the space-time continuum, let alone Allah. And Allah is above all limits and constraints.

This is why Allah says that nothing can be compared to him in any way.

The problem is when we either confirm or deny the sifat of Allah, in my opinion anyone who denies them is denying Allah and is a deviant or kaffir who is doing bida'ah.

What are your thoughts on it.
