Shia Scholars' Understanding of Tawheed

Post by Mustafa on Tue Mar 28, 2017 5:22 pm

Those who call themselves "Sunni" Muslims are known for taking the words of the Holy Quran in a much more literal sense than the Shia, and thus reach the conclusion that Allah (Glorious and Exalted is He) has a "face", "hand", etc.

But how do the scholars of Shia Islam interpret these Quranic verses, which one may superficially think allude to Allah having a body? And how does this compare to the literal understanding of those who call themselves "Ahlus-Sunnah"?

Taking these verses literally would undoubtedly lead to the "Sunni" belief of Tajseem (anthropomorphism). Even if they claim that they believe Allah's supposed "face", "shin", "feet", etc. are nothing like our human bodies, they cannot deny the fact that they are still attributing limitations to Allah.
