Hadith regarding the manifestation of Allah Ta’ala’s glory

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

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.
