The Shaikh of Islaam, Ibn Taymiyyah, may Allaah have mercy on him, said, “The greatest pleasure in the Hereafter is seeing Allaah, سبحانه, as occurs in the authentic hadith, ‘And so He will have not given them anything more beloved to them than looking at Him,’ and it [i.e., seeing Him] is the fruit of knowing Him and worshipping Him in this world.

So the best thing in the worldly life is knowing Him and the best thing in the Hereafter is seeing Him.”

Majmoo al-Fataawaa, vol. 14, p. 163.

Shaikh ’Uthaimeen, may Allaah have mercy on him, was asked, “‘We hear on the radio where they say that it will rain in a certain area tomorrow, does this contradict the fact that knowledge of when rain will fall is specific to Allaah [Alone]?’

He replied, ‘Many people find this problematic thinking that weather forecasts go against Allaah’s Statement, ‘And with Him are the keys of the Unseen,’ but the reality is that they do not, because their knowledge of such matters is knowledge which draws on something palpable. Things are linked to their causes.’”

Sharh Hadith Jibreel ’alaihis-salaam, p. 110.

Shaikh Uthaimeen, may Allaah have mercy on him, said, “The statement made about a dead person that, ‘He has been buried in his final resting place,’ is haram and not permissible, since when you say, ‘… in his final resting place,’ then according to that the grave is the last thing for him, and that implies a denial of the Resurrection.”

Fataawa Arkaan al-Islaam p. 243.
