Abu Ayyub Al-Khazzaz reported that Muhammad Ibn Muslim said: “I asked Muhammad Al-Baqir (a.) about the verse “What prevented you from prostrating yourself before what I created with My two hands?” (38:75) He said: “With the hand it is meant power and grace in the idiom of the Arabs. God said: “Remember Our servant David, the owner of the hands.” (38:17) He also said: “We built the heavens with hands.” (51:47) By which power is meant, and He says: “He has strengthened them with a Spirit of Himself.” (58:22) By which is meant that He gave them strength. You say to someone: “I have many hands.” By which you mean virtues and goodness, and you say: “He has a white hand.” By which you mean mercy.” [At-Tawhid of As-Saduq, page 154 Hadith 1]

Ja’far As-Sadiq (a.) reported that the Prophet Muhammad (s.) said: “Those who loved for the sake of God will stand on a ground of green emeralds in the shadow of His throne at His right hand on the Day of Resurrection and His two hands are right. Their faces are extremely bright and shine more than the rising sun and every angel close to God and a sent prophet envies their rank.” They say: “Who are they?” One will answer: “They are the ones who loved for the sake of God.” [Al-Kafi of Al-Kulaini, Volume 2 Page 126 Hadith 7]

Muhammad Baqir Al-Majlisi writes: “With His two hands, blessed and exalted be He, is meant the attribute of perfection. One hand is not inferior to the other of them, for the left hand is inferior to the right. Everything that is mentioned in the Qur’an and in the traditions about the hand, the hands, the right hand and other things besides that concerning God is metaphorical and not to be understood literally, because God, exalted be He, is free from comparison with creatures and embodiment.” [Mir’at-ul-Uqul Fi Sharh Akhbar Al Ar-Rasul, Volume 8 page 262]
