Seeing Allaah

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.

Al-Haafidh Ibn Rajab al-Hanbali said about Shaikhul-Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah’s death, “And the funeral prayer in absentia was performed over him in most of the Muslim lands, both near and far, even up to Yemen and China. And travellers related that the call for his funeral prayer was hailed in the remotest corners of China on the day of Jumu’ah [proclaiming]: ‘The funeral prayer for the Interpreter of the Quraan!’”

Dhail Tabaqaat al-Hanaabilah, vol. 2, p. 407.
