Hadith: 21 Jan 2014 (19 Rabi’ul Awwal 1435)

English Translation of Hadith

Hazrat Jarir bin `Abdullah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: We were sitting with the Messenger of Allah [SAWW](PBUH) when he looked at the full moon and observed, "You shall see your Rubb in the Hereafter as you are seeing this moon; and you will not feel the slightest inconvenience in seeing Him.”

[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].

Lesson : as mentioned above in Surah Al-Naml Ayat 89 “Whoever brings a good deed (i.e. Belief in the Oneness of Allah along with every deed of righteousness), will have better than it’s worth” Just as when we witness the moon there is no problem, no rush or troublesome gathering of people and no pushing of one another, the pious will see Allah without any trouble or difficulty. How shall we see Him, we cannot describe this even by any instance or parable. In Surat Ash-Shura, Verse 11, it is said that there is nothing like Him. However, we cannot see Him in this world with these worldly eyes. The reason is that, as Imam Malik says, these eyes are just temporary and they cannot bear the Sight of Allah. This is why the research scholars claim that the Prophet [SAWW](PBUH) did not actually see Allah during his journey to the heavens; he only talked to Allah by way of Revelation. The saying by Hazrat Aishah (May Allah be pleased with her) also proves this contention. However, it would be possible to see Allah in Jannah as everything there will be eternal and indestructible. Similar will be the case with the sight and eyes which will be provided to us there. Such eyes would have the power to see Allah.
