As-Salaam alaikum,
 Let us take a moment to consider the following verses or ayats of the Holy Qur'an:--

  "Say: All bounties are in the hands of Allah, He grants
   them to whom He pleases." (3:73)

  "Verily those who plight their fealty to you do no less
    than plight their fealty to Allah:
    The Hand of Allah is over their hands." (48:10)
 
   "(Allah) Most Gracious is firmly established
    on the Throne (of authority)" (20:5)

These are among the ayats/verses in the Qur'an attributing a face to Allah, as well as hands and/or eyes. He is also described as talking and sitting on a throne, as in 20:5 above.

The notion of Allah having a human form can only be seen as a metaphor, not literal description, as the Wahabbiyya understood it. For example, ayat 10 in Surat Fathi: "Allah's Hand is over their hands" is commonly understood to mean that Allah Ta'ala keeps His promises to those who have given allegiance to the Prophet, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, not that He literally has celestial hands... human hands of flesh and blood.

 And ayat 73 in Surat Ali-Imran: "All bounties are in the Hand of Allah"... is a metaphorical description of Allah's Might (quwwa) and predetermination.
Note this well accordingly...

I am studying the core beliefs (Aqeedah) of various Muslim groups at the moment.

Could you please show me an example where any one of these people (that you call 'Wahabbiyya') has associated Allah's attributes to human attributes? (a weblink or page from a book...etc).

This is very important, because this assertion/accusation pertains to hundreds of millions of people (especially in the middle of Ramadhan).

Awaiting your reply/clarification/help...
