Al-Muzani’s Sharhus-Sunnah: Seeing Allaah in the Hereafter (Ru’yah)

Imaam al-Muzani mentioned the following in his treatise called Sharhus-Sunnah:

So at that point, they will look upon their Lord. They will not be glancing here and there whilst looking at Him and they will not be in doubt. So their faces will be shining by His Generosity and their eyes will be gazing upon Him by His excellence. They will reside in a state of perpetual happiness and,

“No fatigue will touch them therein, nor from it will they ever be removed.” [Suratul-Hijr 15:48]

“Its fruit is lasting, and its shade. That is the consequence for the righteous, and the consequence for the disbelievers is the Fire.” [Suratul-Ra’d 13:35]

And the people of juhd (obstinate rejection) will be veiled from their Lord on that Day1 and they will be burned in the Fire,

“How wretched is that which they have put forth for themselves in that Allah has become angry with them, and in the punishment they will abide eternally.” [Suratul-Ma’idah 5:80]


“And for those who disbelieve will be the fire of Hell. Death is not decreed for them so they may die, nor will its torment be lightened for them. Thus do we recompense every ungrateful one.” [Surah Fatir 35:36]

And Allah will take out from it whosoever He wills from the people of Tawhid.

1 From al-Muzani: I heard Ibrahim Ibn Haram al-Qurashi who said: I heard ash-Shafi’i (d.204H) speaking about the statement of Allah (tabaraka wa ta’ala),

“No! Indeed, from their Lord, that Day, they will be partitioned.” [Suratul-Mutaffifin 83:15]
