Properly Understanding Metaphor and Ascription


Logical Metaphor and Its Use

There is no doubt that figurative speech is used in the Book and the Sunnah. From that, are the words of the Exalted:

"And when our verses are recited to them, they increase them in faith.'' (al-Anfāl; 2)

Linking the increase to the verses here is figurative because (in reality), they are a cause for the increase. It is Allah alone that actually increases it (the faith).

Also, the statement of the Exalted:

"A day that shall make the young grey haired." (al-Muzammil; 17)
