The meaning and purport of the Hadith of Hadhrat Aisha Siddiqua (May Allah be well pleased with her)
There is a Hadith in Sahih Bukhari:
Translation of Hadith: Masrooq says: Hadhrat Aisha (May Allah be well pleased with her) says: Whoever tells you that Hadhrat Muhammad (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) saw His Lord, as He is, lies. Allah Ta’ala says: No sight can grasp His vision but He has encompassed all vision and eyesight. He is the All-Penetrating Viewer, All-Aware. Surah An’aam (6:103) (Sahih Bukhari, Kitab Ut Tauheed, Hadith No. 7380)
This Hadith does not negate “seeing” Allah Ta’ala, but negates seeing Allah Ta’ala, as He is, as Allah Ta’ala and His attributes (qualities) are beyond all measure and boundless. Seeing Allah Ta’ala, as the Lord is, is impossible.
If the negation in this Hadith is taken to be the negation of comprehending Allah Ta’ala, then there is no problem at all. However, if it is insisted that this Hadith negates vision of Allah Ta’ala per se, then this Hadith is not acceptable when other Marfu’ Hadith, which establish the vision of Allah Ta’ala are present
