"Verily this Qur'an narrates (yaqussu) unto the Children of Israel most of the matters which they dispute." (an-Naml 27/76)

And He has said:

"This is a Blessed Book (kitabun mubarakun) which We have sent down." (al-An'am 6/92)

And He has said:

"Had We send down this Qur'an on to a mountain, verily you would have seen it humbled and rent asunder for fear of Allah." (al-Hashr 59/21)

And He has said:

"When We substitute one Verse (Ayah) for another and Allah knows best what He reveals-they say: You are but a fabricator; But most of them know not. Say: The Trustworthy Spirit (i.e., Gabriel) has brought it (The Qur'an) from your Lord in Truth, in order to strengthen those who believe, and as Guidance and Good Tidings for Muslims. We know well that they say: It is a man who teaches him; The language of him they falsely point to is notably foreign, while this is Arabic, pure and clear." (an-Nahl 16/101-103)

Looking at Allah:
He has said:

"Some faces, That Day, will beam (in brightness and beauty), looking toward their Lord." (al-Qiyamah 75/22-23)

And He has said:

"(Relaxing) on couches looking (at their Lord)." (al-Mutaffifin 83/35)

See Tafsir Ibn Kathir, for support of my translation of this verse. (The Translator)

And He has said:

"For those who do good, is the best (reward given) and more* (thereto). (Yunus 10/26)

And He has said:

"There they have all they desire; And there is still more with Us." (Qaf 50/35)

And the Qur'an is full of Verses which deal with this topic; Whoever studies the Qur'an carefully searching for guidance from it, the truthful path will be clear to him.

*According to some interpretations: "They See Allah's face."

Allah's Names and Attributes in the Sunnah

The Sunnah16 of the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) interprets the Qur'an and clarifies it, and leads to it, and expresses its meaning. We must accept and believe in the sound Ahadith in which the Messenger (peace be upon him) described his Lord, The Almighty, The Exalted,17 such as the hadith:

"Our Lord descends during the last third of each night to the lower heaven, and says: 'Is there anyone who calls on Me that I may respond to him? Is there anyone who asks Me that I may give unto him? Is there anyone who requests My Forgiveness that I may forgive him?"' (Agreed upon it by al-Bukhari and Muslim)

And the hadith:

"Indeed, Allah is happier with the repentance of his 'abd (worshipper) than any one of you is with finding his lost riding camel." (Agreed upon it by al-Bukhari and Muslim)

And the hadith:

"Allah laughs about two men who kill each other but both enter paradise18." (Agreed upon it by al-Bukhari and Muslim)

And the hadith:

"Allah marvels about the despair of His creatures ('ibad), while the changing of their situation from bad to good is very near, He looks at you, and you are very desperate, so He keeps laughing, because He knows that your relief is very close." (Its isnad is good; reported by AhmadIbn Hanbal and others)

And the hadith:

"(On the Day of Judgment) when a group of unbelievers is thrown into Hell, Hell asks for more until the Lord Almighty places His Foot (over it); then it folds up saying: Enough, enough'." (Agreed upon it by al-Bukhari and Muslim)

And the hadith:

"Allah The Exalted, says: 'Adam!' And Adam answers: 'Here I am, at Your service!' Then a voice calls: 'Verily! Allah orders you to send a delegate from your offspring to Hell'." (Agreed upon it by al-Bukhari and Muslim)

And the hadith:

"Allah will talk to each person directly without a mediator between them." (Agreed upon it by al-Bukhari and Muslim)

And the saying of the Prophet (peace be upon him) on curing the ill:

"Our Lord Allah Who is in heaven, may Your name be sanctified, Your law is in heaven and on earth; As Your Mercy is in heaven so make Your Mercy on earth. Forgive our faults and our sins. You are the Lord of the good people, bestow some of Your Mercy, and some of Your Cure on this pain that the sick may be cured." (This hadith has good isnad, reported by Abu Dawud and others)

And the hadith:

"Do you not trust me, while I have the trust of Him Who is in Heaven?" (Sound hadith; reported by al-Bukhari and Muslim)

And the hadith:

"The Throne is above the water, and Allah is on the Throne; He knows what you are up to." (Good hadith, reported by Abu Dawud and others.)

And the saying of the Prophet (peace be upon him) to the maid:

"Where is Allah?" And she answering: "In the heaven." And he saying: "Who am I?" And she saying: "You are the Messenger of Allah." And he saying "Free her; She is a believer." (Muslim)

And the hadith:
