    Combining between the reports that mention Left and Right Hand for Allaah


    Question:

    How can we make a combination between the report "with His left Hand", mentioned in the hadeeth of Ibn 'Umar, radyAllaahu 'anhumaa, in Saheeh Muslim and his, sallAllaahu 'alayhi wa sallam, saying: "And both His hands are right-handed?"

    Answer:

    There is no contradiction between the two hadeeths that is apparent on the outset. Thus his, sallAllaahu 'alayhi wa sallam, saying: "And both His hands are right-handed" is an affirmation of Allaah's statement: "There is nothing whatsoever like Him (in comparison). And He is the All-Hearer, the All-Seer." [Surah Ash-Shooraa: 11] So this description, which the Messenger of Allaah, sallAllaahu 'alayhi wa sallam, has informed us of is an affirmation of Allaah's removal from any anthropomorphic qualities. Thus, the hand of Allaah is not like the hand of a human being – left-handed and righthanded. On the contrary, both His hands are right-handed, may He be far removed from any defects. As for the other point, then it is that the report: "with His left hand" is shaadh, as I have clarified in the checking of "Al-Mustalahaat-ul-Arba'ah Al-Waaridah feel-Qur'aan" of Al-Mawdoodee. What further supports this is that Abu Dawood also reported this hadeeth and (in it, he, sallAllaahu 'alayhi wa sallam) said, "with His other hand" in the place of "with His left hand." This report is in conformity with his, sallAllaahu 'alayhi wa sallam, other saying: "And both His hands are right-handed." And Allaah knows best.

    [QUOTE=Iqram;858229]
    It doesn't literally mean a hand with 5 fingers. Allah is totally unique and is in a completely different dimension to us. We will not understand the aspects regarding his attriubutes, therefore they've been put into terms like 'hand' in order for us to understand.


    ok i see your point, i can understand that allah has placed limitations on our understanding and therefore uses common terms for us to comprehend what is being said.

    jazakallah
