الجواب حامداومصليا

Allah (سبحانه وتعالى) is all pure and Glorified. Worthy of all praises and free from all faults and flaws.

Allah (سبحانه وتعالى) can not be described because there is nothing like Him in this entire universe. We can only describe those things the like of which exists in the universe but Allah is all unique. There is nothing like Him.

He is above us and His knowledge encompasses everything. There is nothing that is impossible for Allah سبحانه وتعالى

All the believers must believe that the dwellers of Paradise will be given a chance to see Almighty Allah سبحانه وتعالى and it will be the greatest of all pleasures for all the dwellers of Paradise. All other pleasures will seem as nothing compare to the seeing of Allah سبحانه وتعالى after the Day of Judgment.

It is not possible for a human being to see Allah in this world in while awake.

And Allah knows best.

ولا شئ مثله. الشرح: أى لا فى ذاته ولا فى صفاته ولا فى أفعاله ولا فى أسمائه ولا فى أحكامه

وقوله تعالى: ليس كمثله شئ وهو السميع البصير

والرؤية حق لأهل الجنة بغير احاطة ولا كيفية كما نطق به كتاب ربنا: وجوه يومئذ ناظرة الى ربها ناظرة. وتفسيره على ما أراد الله تعالى وعلمه
