Q: I have read somewhere: According to the lengthy hadeeth about intercession, it says ‘…then the Compeller (Al-Jabbar) will come to them in an image different than the image in which they saw Him the first time…’ (Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 7440; Muslim, 183).
Does this hadeeth mean that Allah Taala is capable of changing his image?
A: This is a manifestation of His glory.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
