To See Allahu Ta'âlâ In Paradise

Hadrat Imâm-i Rabbânî says in the 17th letter of the third volume of his Maktûbât:

Believers will see Allâhu ta'âlâ in Paradise. But they will see Him with a seeing which is not known. Seeing something which is not known or comprehended, will be seeing which is not comprehended. Maybe the one who sees will go into a state that cannot be understood, and then will see. This is a mystery, a puzzle, which has been communicated to the distinguished ones of the Awliyâ in this world. This profound, difficult matter, which is hidden to everybody, has been revealed to them. It has not been understood, with the exception of the Ahl-i sunnat, neither by groups of Believers nor by any individual from the disbelievers.

All but those great people said that Allâhu ta'âlâ could not be seen. Others went wrong because they likened the things which they did not know to those which they saw. It is obvious that such comparisons and measurements will give wrong results. [And today, many people are dragged towards eternal disaster by losing their îmân because of this wrong measurement and comparison.] To be blessed with the honour of îmân in profound matters such as these falls to one's lot only in the light of obeying the sunnat (that is, the Sharî'at) of Muhammad (alaihissalâm). How can they be honoured with attaining this blessing, those who are deprived of the honour of believing in seeing Allâhu ta'âlâ in Paradise in light of the famous saying, "He who refuses will be deprived"?
