Why Allah cant be seen
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 6 Surah Anaam verses 102-103:
102 That is Allah your Lord! There is no god but He, the Creator of all things: then worship ye Him: and He has Power to dispose of all affairs.
103 No vision can grasp Him but His grasp is over all vision! He is above all comprehension, yet is acquainted with all things.
Respected brother, it is just not possible for any vision in creation to grasp the Majesty of Allah Subhanah, the Lord of the Worlds! There is none in creation, and we reiterate, none who has seen Allah Subhanah….not even the mightiest Angels or the noblest of Prophets have been granted a vision of the Lord Most Majestic Most Supreme!
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 7 Surah Aaraaf verse 143:
143 When Moses came to the place appointed by Us and his Lord addressed him, he (Moses) said: "O my Lord! Show (Thyself) to me that I may look upon Thee." Allah said: "By no means canst thou see Me! But look upon the mount; if it abides in its place then shalt thou see Me." When his Lord manifested His Glory on the mount. He made it as dust. and Moses fell down in a swoon. When he recovered his senses he said: "Glory be to Thee! To Thee I turn in repentance and I am the first to believe."
Only on the Day of Judgment the Lord Most Supreme will grant the honor of His vision to the believers.
Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 1.770 (part) Narrated by Abu Huraira
The people said, "O Allah's Messenger (saws)! Shall we see our Lord on the Day of Resurrection?" He (saws) replied, "Do you have any doubt in seeing the full moon on a clear night?" They replied, "No, O Allah's Messenger (saws)!" He (saws) said, "Do you have any doubt in seeing the sun when there are no clouds?" They replied in the negative. He (saws) said, "You will see Allah (your Lord) in the same way!”
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah’s Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
