    Anyway, you agreed with a comment that referred to Allah's hands. What do you mean by Allah's hands?

    The best way to explain what I mean is with the word of Imam Shafi.

    Imām Abu ‘Abdillāh Muhammad Bin Idrīs ash-Shāfi’ī said: ‘I believe in Allāh and in what has been reported concerning Allāh, upon what was intended by Allāh. And I believe in the Messenger of Allāh, and in what has been reported concerning the Messenger of Allāh, upon what was intended by the Messenger Of Allāh.’ (Luma' tul Itiqa'd - Ibn Qudamah)

          The post mentioned "Allah's hands."

          What does that mean?

              I didn't say there was anything wrong with it, I'm asking you what it means.

              Basic English.

                If you know basic English you should know what that means.

                  Allah isn't an English word so "Allah's hands" doesn't come under basic English. Why are you struggling to explain it?

                    Well, there is a difference of opinion on how one should translate Yadullah (Allah's Hand) into a foreign language. Allah's knows best whose opinion is the strongest. To me it doesn't matter, as long as the translator intends to transmit what Allah and His Messenger intended. You can only intend, because Arabic is not English, nothing is 100% accurate. For example, "Taqwa" there isn't really a single word in English that captures the full meaning of the word "Tawqa". So what do you do? What is your view?

                      You can't explain what that term means? You just translated it so must have an idea.

                        I used someone else’s translation.

                          Regardless, you presented it as a translation and agreed with another post that mentioned it.

                          Not sure why you're dancing around something that should be easy for you to explain .

                            I’m hanging out with some Sufis who follow Imam Suyuti’s Position on dancing, maybe that explains why I’m dancing. Haha

                              Your pride has got in the way of owning up to your faux pas.

                                Are you trying to catch us out?
                                I don't claim to "know" Arabic or the meaning of everything in the Qur'an,
                                but I DO know that there is more than one opinion on many things.

                                ..including what is meant by "Allah's hands" [as in the literal translation into English of an ayat]
