Abu Amr Abdur-Rahmaan bin Amr al-Awzaa'ee, The Scholar of ash-Shaam in his time (d. 157H)
Abu Abdullaah al-Haakim reported from al-Awzaa'ee:
We - whilst the Taabi'oon (Successors) were widespread - used to say, "Indeed, Allaah the Mighty and Majestic, is above His Throne, and we believe in whatever has been mentioned in the Sunnah of His Attributes.
Al-Bayhaqi related it in his book, "al-Asmaa was-Sifaat" (p. 408).
And Abu Ishaaq ath-Tha'labee, the Mufassir (Exegete) said:
Al-Awzaa'ee was asked regarding His, the Most High's saying: "Then He ascended over the Throne", so he said: "He is over His Throne, just as He described Himself."
And al-Waleed bin Muslim asked the Imaam, Abu Amr al-Awzaa'ee about the ahaadeeth of the Attributes and he said:
"Pass them on just as they have come".
And also from the speech of this Imaam [is]:
Upon you is [to follow] the tracks of those (Salaf) who have preceded, even if the people reject you, and beware of the opinions of men even if they beautify it for you with speech.
