A Summary of Hamawiyyah
  Creed of Hamawiyyah - Chapter 15 : Concerning Affirmation of Two Hands (Yadaan) for Allaah
Author: Shaikh ul-Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah
Source: Aqidat ul-Hamawiyyah
Article ID : AQD070015  [11397]  


15.1 ALLAAH HAS TWO HANDS THAT BEFIT HIM.

- Both being from His Attributes that pertains to His Self being in a manner that befits Him.

15.1.1 QUR'AAN: (38):75

15.1.2 HADEETH:

al- Bukhaaree, (Eng.) Vol.9, H515; Muslim (Eng.) Vol. 2., H2179, "The Hand of Allaah is full and gives continuously."

15.2 IT DOES NOT MEAN "POWER" [AL- QOOWAH] OR "BLESSING" [AN- NI'MAH]

15.2.1 IT DIFFERS FROM WHAT IS APPARENT FROM THE TEXTS.

- And there's no proof for these figurative meanings.

15.2.2 THESE MEANINGS ARE IMPOSSIBLE IN THE LANGUAGE.

- As in Arabic, it's impossible to say that "Two Hands" means "Two Powers" or "Two Blessings".

15.2.3 POWER OR BLESSING IS NEVER FOUND IN THE DUAL FORM.

- While Hand is found as dual - i.e. the Two Hands of Allaah.
- So how can the former be meanings for the latter?

15.2.4 IF WE ASSUMED IT DID MEAN "POWER"

- Then referring to (38):75, it could then be correct to say that Iblees was also made by Allaah's Hands [i.e. Power, according to this false belief]. This is absurd!
- And Iblees would have argued against Allaah via this, as he would claim to be the same as Aadam - both being created by His "Power" - according to this false interpretation.

15.2.5 THE HANDS ARE DESCRIBED SUCH THAT THEY CAN ONLY BE HANDS.

- The texts have described a Palm for Allaah [al Kaff] and has affirmed Fingers [al- Asaabi'] and that His Hand Grasps [al Qabd] and Shakes [al Hazz]

- Hadeeth: al-Bukhaaree (Eng.) Vol. 9, H604; Muslim (Eng.) Vol. 4, H6699: "Allaah will grasp the heavens with His Hand and the earth with the other, then He will shake them ..."
