I have heard a hadtih mentioned several times but not sure about its authenticity and meaning. The hadith mentions that Allah (swt) created Man in his image (or in the image of his face). Can you please explain this?

Answer:

Ref. No. 41/1000

In the name of Allah the most gracious the most merciful

The answer to your question is as follows:

Yes, this Hadith ‘Allah created Adam in His image’ is recorded in Bukhari and other Hadith books. The pronoun ‘ہ’ in the hadith refers to Allah as it is stated in another hadith ‘in the image of Rahman’. In the hadith the word “image” refers to “attributes”, Thus, Adam was created possessing attributes of Allah while the attributes of Allah are eternal and absolute. (Faizul Bari 6/187)
