What The Scholars Have Said Regarding Seeing Allaah In The Hereafter


Shaykhul-Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah (d. 728) said, “And this matter is from the fundamental principles and the disgust of the Salaf towards the one who opposed this was strong and intense. And they authored many well-known books in this regard.

[Majmoo’ Al-Fataawaa 2/469]

Imaam Al-Aajurree (d. 360) said, “And the apparent meaning of the Qur’aan makes it clear that the believers will see Allaah, The Mighty and Majestic. So having faith in it is obligatory and whoever believes in that which we have mentioned then he has acquired his share of goodness in this life and in the hereafter. And whoever denies all of what we have mentioned, and claims that Allaah, The Mighty and Majestic, will not be seen in the hereafter then he has disbelieved, and whoever disbelieves in this then he has disbelieved in many matters, having faith in which is obligatory.

[Ash-Sharee’ah p. 275]

Imaam Ahmad said, “Whoever says that Allaah, The Mighty and Majestic, will not be seen in the hereafter then he has disbelieved. Upon him is the curse of Allaah and His anger – whomever he may be from among the people.

[Quoted in Ash-Sharee’ah p. 254]

Aboo Dawood As-Sijistaanee said, “I heard Ahmad Ibn Hanbal say, when something regarding the seeing of Allaah (in the hereafter) was mentioned to him, he became angry and said, ‘(Whoever says) Allaah, The Mighty and Majestic, will not be seen is a disbeliever.’

[Quoted in Ash-Sharee’ah p. 255]

[All the above was taken from “Foundations of The Sunnah” p. 20]
