Chapter 4. The Believers Will See Their Lord On The Day Of Judgement

The believers will see their Lord in the Hereafter with their own eyes and they will visit Him. He will speak to them and they will speak to Him.  Allah says:

"(Some) Faces on that Day will be shiny and radiant. Looking at their Lord (Allah)." [Surah Al-Qiyaamah (75): 22-23]

And He says:

"Nay!  Surely, they (evildoers) will be veiled from seeing their Lord that Day." [Surah Al-Mutaffifeen (83): 15]

If Allah is screened from these people (disbelievers) during a state in which they are in discontentment this indicates that the believers will see Him while being in (the opposite) a state of pleasure. If this were not so, there would be no distinction between the two.

The Prophet (ra) said: "Indeed, you will see your Lord, just as you see this moon. There is no difficulty in your seeing it." This is an authentic hadith that has been agreed upon.

This statement is a comparison between one manner of seeing with another manner of seeing. It is not a comparison between what is being seen and something else that is being seen, for indeed, Allah has neither comparisons nor equals.
