A rule with accepting reports on al-ghayb

Shaikh ‘Ubaid al-Jābirī حفظه الله said in one of his shuruh of Usool al-Sunnah by imām Ahmad bin Hanbal that you should surrender to and believe in what has been authenticated from your Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم . And that you leave off the howness of it to Allah عز وجل — because this is a principle that is general in the topics of al-Qadr (pre decree) and in the Sifāt of Allah (His Attributes) and in al-Barzakh (the unseen – after death – of the grave).
