Deedar-e-Khuda (Vision of Allah)  
 
Dar ad-Dunya

* The Prophet said, "You will definitely see your Lord with your own eyes."
(Narrated Jarir bin 'Abdullah, Sahih Bukhari)

* 'Umar b. al-Khattab reported: ...'The stranger said: 'You speak the truth.' Then, he said: 'What is Ihsan?'
Rasulallah replied, saying: 'Ihsan is to worship Allah as though you see Him, but if you see Him not, then worship Him knowing He sees you.'.....

....Rasulallah (s) said: 'This is Jibril. He came to teach you your religion.'"

(This hadith, or versions similar to it, is transmitted in several of the famous collections of hadith, including Bukhari, Muslim and Tirmidhi) {only part of the Hadith quoted for relevancy}

* The Prophet is narrated to have said, "Made beloved to me from your world are women and perfume, and the coolness of my eyes is in prayer."
(Ahmad and An-Nasa'i)

* It is narrated on the authority of Ibn 'Abbas that he (the Holy Prophet) saw (Allah) with his heart.
* It is narrated on the authority of Ibn Abbas that the words: " The heart belied not what he saw" (al-Qur'an, Iiii. 11) and" Certainly he saw Him in another descent" (al-Qur'an, Iiii. 13) imply that he saw him twice with his heart.
(Chapter 77: The Meaning of the Saying of Allah, The Mighty and Sublime: And indeed he saw him at a second descent (another time)"; And did the prophet (saws) see his lord on the night of the Isra? Above two Ahadith from Sahih Muslim )

* The Prophet said, "As-Salaatu Me'raj-ul-Mu'mineen"

*In Tirmidhi (hasan sahih) and Baghawi in Sharh al-Sunna on the authority of Mu`adh ibn Jabal:

* 'Urwah ibn az-Zubayr asked Ibn 'Umar for his daughter's hand while the two of them were doing tawaf and he didn't answer him. Later he met him and apologised saying, "We were in tawaf visualising Allah before our eyes."
(Abu Nu'aym and others narrated it.)

The Prophet said: "My Lord came to me in the best image and asked me over what did the angels of the higher heaven vie, and I said I did not know, so He put His hand between my shoulders, and I felt its coolness in my innermost, and the knowledge of all things between the East and the West came to me."

* Allah Most High says: "....My slave approaches Me with nothing more beloved to Me than what I have made obligatory upon him, and My slave keeps drawing nearer to Me with voluntary works until I love him. And when I love him, I am his hearing with which he hears, his sight with which he sees, his hand with which he seizes, and his foot with which he walks. If he asks me, I will surely give to him, and if he seeks refuge in Me, I will surely protect him (Bukhari)

* The Prophet said, "Whoever loves the meeting with Allah, Allah too, loves the meeting with him; and whoever hates the meeting with Allah, Allah too, hates the meeting with him."
(Narrated Abu Musa, Sahih Bukhari)

* ... Allah will come to them in a shape other than they know and will say, 'I am your Lord.' They will say, 'We seek refuge with Allah from you. This is our place; (we will not follow you) till our Lord comes to us, and when our Lord comes to us, we will recognize Him.

Then Allah will come to them in a shape they know and will say, "I am your Lord.' They will say, '(No doubt) You are our Lord,' and they will follow Him...

[Narrated Abu Huraira, Bukhari] {only part of the Hadith quoted for relevancy}

* Jarir said, "We were with the Prophet and he looked at the moon (full-moon) and said, 'Certainly you will see your Lord as you see this moon and you will have no trouble in seeing Him. So if you can avoid missing (through sleep or business, etc.) a prayer before the sun-rise (Fajr) and a prayer before sunset ('Asr), you must do so.'

He then recited Allah's Statement: And celebrate the praises Of your Lord before The rising of the sun And before (its) setting." (50.39) Isma'il said, "Offer those prayers and do not miss them."

(Narrated Qais, Sahih Bukhari)

(Narrated Jarir, Sahih Bukhari)
