    as-salamu 'alaikum,

    could someone put up the commentary of mulla ali al-qari or any other major scholar on the following line from al-fiqh al-akbar - scans, etc - anything will do! (jazakallahu khairan):

    وآل شيء ذآره العلماء بالفارسية من صفات الله تعالى عَزَّ اسمه فجائز القول به سوى اليد بالفارسية, ويجوز أن
    يقال:بروى خداي عز وجل بلا تشبيه وآيفية.

    88. Everything about the attributes of Allah Ta’ala, which the scholars quoted in the Persian language may be mentioned [as such], with exception of Yad (which literally may mean hand). It may be said "bro khodai” [which literally may mean the face of God,"] He is exalted and glorified above the attributes of the creation, without likening Him to the creation nor a “how” [modality].
