assalamu ‘alaikum wa rahmatullah Sheikh,
Hope all is well. Is there a relied upon or jumhoor opinion regarding the meaning of mutashaabihaat as it applies to the verses and hadiths relating to Allah’s attributes?
Alaykumassalam warahmatullah wabarakatuh,
“Mutashabihat: of supposable but unclear meaning—either due to their vagueness or because they contradict a manifest locution—unless they are probed and investigated” (Baydawi, Anwar al-Tanzil).
