Ibn ul-Qayyim says: "So al-Ash'aree and others do not understand from the plural: a'yun (eyes) many eyes, nor from the plural 'aidee' (hands) many hands..."[17]

Ibn Hajr also mentions[18] that al-Bayhaqee mentions a witness to the hadeeth of Abu Hurairah - [i.e. the hadeeth reported by Aboo Daawood that the Prophet (sallallaahu alaihi wasallam) recited Soorah an-Nisaa, aayah 58 and read up to: 'Sameean Baseeraa', and placed his thumb on his ear and the one next to it upon his eye][19] - from the hadeeth of Uqbah bin Aamir: I heard Allaah's Messenger (sallallaahu alaihi wasallam) say upon the minbar: "Our Lord certainly hears and sees" and he pointed to his two eyes" Ibn Hajr says: Its isnaad is hasan. [20]

That Allaah the Most High has Two Eyes - in the manner that befits Him and without any resemblance to the creation - is also stated by ad-Daarimee in his reply upon Bishr al-Maarisee and by Ibn Khuzaimah in his Kitaabut-Tawheed and by al-Laalikaa'ee in Sharh Usool il-I'tiqaad.

So the Salafees follow and accept the aqeedah of the Salaf and there is no contradiction or ta'weel here.

Thirdly, concerning the Jahmee's lie against Allaah - the Most High - and His saying:

And we constructed the Heaven with power (bi aidin)... [Dhaariyaat 51:47]

The tafseer of Tabaree and the reports that the Jahmee quotes from the Salaf explain 'aidin' to mean 'power' which is what it indeed does mean and it can be found in any dictionary under alif yaa daa. Nor is there any contradiction between it and between aayaat affirming Allaahs Hands (aidee and yadaan)

Do they not see that We have created for them of what Our Hands (aideena) have created... [Soorah Yaa Seen 36:71]

Nay, both His Hands (yadaahu) are outstretched [Soorah Maa'idah 5:64]

So from the foolishness of the Ash'ariyyah - to which this Jahmee ascribes himself - is that they also declare that Allaah's Hand (yad) has to be explained to mean his Power!! So then what about His Two Hands?! Two powers?![21]

Furthermore, this is rebutted by the aayah where it is mentioned that Allaah created Adam with His Two Hands. Abu Hasan al-Ash'aree stated in his Maqaalaat: "...And that He has Two Hands without asking how, just as He has said:

(Allaah said): O Iblees! What prevents you from prostrating yourself to one whom I have created with My Two Hands?" [Soorah Sa'd 38:75]

And also, the hadeeth of intercession where Aadam is being addressed as the one whom Allaah created with His Hand[22]. And likewise the hadeeth wherein it is mentioned that: "On the Day of Resurrection, Allaah will grasp the (whole planet of) Earth by His Hand all the heavens in His Right, and then He will say: I am the King".[23]

But from the deception and corruption of this vile and lowly Jahmee is that in his lecture, he translated the aayah in question as: "And the sky, We have built with Hands, verily We outspread it."

Translating 'aidin' as 'Hands' instead of 'power' (which is what it actually means in this verse) enabling himself thereby, to justify his falsehood that the Salaf have done ta'weel of this aayah because they explain it to mean 'with power' and by claiming that at-Tabaree has ascribed this figurative explanation (ta'weel) to Ibn Abbaas, Qataadah, Mansoor ibn Zadaana and Sufyaan ath-Thawree - free and innocent are they from the Jahmee's filth and the Jahmee and his filth from them, as Yoosuf (alaihi-salaam) was from the wife of al-Azeez. The Jahmee is obviously ignorant or feigning ignorance of the fact that 'aidin' in the language has the meaning of 'power'[24] and that this is the natural explanation given, which is devoid of any ta'weel, and which at-Tabaree has quoted from the Salaf.[25]

Fourthly, with regard to the Jahmee's claim about the tafseer of the aayah :

The Day that the shin shall be laid bare and they shall be summoned to bow in adoration but they shall not be able [Soorah Qalam 68:42]

Then the aayah mentions the saaq (shin) which is one of the Attributes of Allaah - the Most High - This is clearly seen from the hadeeth of Abu Sa'eed al-Khudree[26] in which there occurs: "...Then the Almighty will come to them in a form other than that which they saw the first time, and He will say "I am your Lord" and they will say:"You are not our Lord". And none will speak to Him but the Prophets, and it will be said to them: "Do you know of any sign by which you can recognise Him?" They will say: "The shin (saaq)", so then Allaah will uncover His shin and every believer will prostrate to Him..."
