[Collected by ad Daylami, It was also collected by ad Darqutni in ‘As Sifaat’ P. 26 #28 and Abu Ash Shaikh in ‘Al ‘Udhmah’: 5/1555]
In another Hadeeth narrated by ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Amr:
“Indeed Allah - the Mighty and Majestic - created three things with His Hand; He created Adam with His Hand, He wrote the Torah with His Hand and He planted Firdaws with His Hand.”
[Collected by ad Darqutni in ‘As Sifaat’ P.45 and al Bayhaqi in ‘Al Asma was Sifat’: P. 403 on the authority of al Harith ibn Nawfal.]
It was authentically reported that ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Umar said:
“Allaah created four things with His Hand;
The paradise of ‘Adn.
He then said to the rest of the creation ‘Kun’ [Be] and it was.”
Adh Dhahabi stated in ‘Al ‘Uluw’: ‘It’s chain is good.’
Al Albaani stated in ‘Mukhtasar al ‘Uluw’ P.105: ‘The chain is authentic according to the conditions of Muslim.’
On the authority of ‘Abdullaah ibn al Haarith who said; the Messenger of Allaah - صلى الله عليه و سلم - said:
“Allah created three things with His Hand; He created Adam with His Hand, He wrote the Torah with His Hand and He planted Firdaws with His Hand. He then said; “By my Glory, neither a drunkard nor a ‘Dayyooth’ will live in it”
The companions asked: ‘O Messenger of Allah, we know the drunkard, but who is the Dayyooth?’
He responded: “One who consents to evil in his family.”
[Collected by al Khira-ity in Masaawi al Akhlaaq: P.62, #426]
On the authority of ibn ‘Umar – may Allah be pleased with him:
“Allah created four things with his hands: The throne, the paradise of ‘Adn, Adam and the Pen
He veiled the creation from Himself with four:
Fire, then darkness, then light, then darkness.”
Al Haakim stated: ‘The chain is authentic according to the conditions of both Bukhari and Muslim but they did not collect them [in their Saheehs].’
It has been authentically reported by both al Bukhari and Muslim in their Saheehs, that the Prophet - صلى الله عليه و سلم - said in the Hadeeth of the intercession: it will be said to Musa: ‘…You are Musa that Allah has specified with His [direct] Speech [to you] and wrote the Tablets for you with His Hand…’
The people of knowledge stated that Allah did not create anything with His Hand except Adam, the Paradise of ‘Adn – for indeed he created it with His Hand, and He wrote the Torah with His Hand. These are three things that were by the Hand of Allaah – the Mighty and Majestic, as for [those of mankind] other than Adam , they were created by the word ‘Kun’ (be).
[Tafseer Surat al Kahf: P.89]
There are Ahadeeth collected by Bukhari and Muslim that affirm that Allah created Adam with His Hand, He wrote the Torah with His Hand and that He planted 'Adn with His Hand in separate narrations, they can be translated if needed but the authentic narrations in this article should be sufficient.
 It also means one who does not have any jealousy for his family and therefore allows evil to take place.
