The one who claims to see Almighty God with his own eyes, in this life here below (earthly life), does not belong to our community.
وَمَا كَانَ لِبَشَرٍ أَن يُكَلِّمَهُ اللَّهُ إِلَّا وَحْيًا أَوْ مِن وَرَاءِ حِجَابٍ أَوْ يُرْسِلَ رَسُولًا فَيُوحِيَ بِإِذْنِهِ مَا يَشَاءُ ۚ إِنَّهُ عَلِيٌّ حَكِيمٌ
It has not been given to a mortal that God speaks to him other than by revelation or through intermediary, or that He sends [Him] a messenger (Angel) who reveals, by His permission, what He [God] wants. Soura Ash-shoura 51
Our belief in God is based on the authentic testimonies of the prophets (Adam Noah… Ibrahim… Moses… David… Jesus and Mohammad, salvation and blessings be upon them all) and irrefutable facts.
And as a result, Belief in God is based on knowing the Attributes that suit Him and not ascribing imperfection to Him.
.And faith is believing in Almighty God and His Attributes such as:
– EXISTANCE: There is no doubt in the Existence of Allah.
– ONENESS: Allah has no equal.
– ETERNITY: In the sense that His Existence has no beginning and end.
– EXISTING BY ITSELF: Allah is the Master Who is resorted to in one’s needs.
– THE ALL MIGHTY: He Acts by himself. Do what He wants. And not accountable to anyone. Absolute power. God can do whatever He wanted to do.
– WILL: Nothing exists (good or bad) that is not willed by God. What God wants is. And what God doesn’t want isn’t.
– OMNISCIENCE: God knows everything from all eternity. He knows what was, what will be and what will never happen.
– THE CLAIRE-AUDIENCE: Allah hears everything, without organ.
– THE CLAIRE-VOYANCE: God sees everything, without organ. The looks do not apprehend him however that He catches all the glances. (Soura Al-An’am 103)
– SPEECH: God speaks and His Speech have no resemblance with the speech of creatures.
– THE LIVING: God has as an attribute life which is from all eternity, without beginning and end.
– NON-RESEMBLANCE TO THE CREATION: Nothing is like Him.
This is summed up by the saying of Imam Malik, who said: Whatever you can imagine God is different.
