How is it that we describe Allah as having certain “emotions” like pleasure, displeasure, anger, happiness, and love? I find it strange because we say Allah can have no hands because he is the creator of hands for example but we don’t seem to stick to this logic as far as emotions.

Allah in the application of these traits is no way like us because He does not require such means to implement or express His will. The use of terms like His pleasure or anger is so we can understand and relate our actions with respect to Him. Otherwise how will we know or understand that He has accepted our acts or not. Moreover, it is how we understand the degree to which our acts can get better. As such, belief is good, but He loves the pious. Doing good is something He tells us to do, but He loves those who do it with sincerity.
