Did the Rasul say at anytime during his life that he saw Allah? Did Musa see Allah on the mountain?

there is hujub(veils) hiding us from seeing Allah.. and if these veils became uncovered we will be burn from the light of His face of jalal and Ikram, we are not ready/prepared yet to (not have the ability yet to stand His light).

and Allah if He will He will give the ability to whoever He wills. as in the night journey of israa and mi3rage sayidna Gibreel who was leading/guiding sayidna Muhammad in the trip came to a location at sedrat al montaha and said to sayidna Muhammad that until this point he cannot pass/advance and if he did he will be burned from the veils of light. but for sayidna Muhammad if he pass/advance he will penetrate/cross it.

these veils are veils of light while for most of us we still in the veils of darkness which are before the veils of light which are hiding Allah from us.. and these veils are from the mercy of Allah to us other wise we will be burned.

as it happened with sayidna Moussa when he wanted to see Allah so Allah told him that he will not see him but He will appear to the mountain and if it remained still then Moussa can see Allah.. and when Allah appeared to the mountain(or remove the veils between Him and the mountain) the mountain fall destructed and Moussa fall unconscious (in Quran 7:143)

but for sayidna Muhammad he went to His lord and learned salah in a place/station where nobody could cross it even Gabriel. and Allah described this moment in Quran;

"While he was in the higher [part of the] horizon. Then he approached and descended And was at a distance of two bow lengths or nearer. And he revealed to His Servant what he revealed. The heart did not lie [about] what it saw. So will you dispute with him over what he saw?" (53:9)

Allah knows better Al salaamou alaikum.

Hadeeth of Ibn Abbas and others in Tirmidi and other book with authentic chains establish that Prophet (Peace be upon him) saw his Lord The Almighty..... And Allah Knows best

Asalaam o alaikum, this view of seeing Allah has been discussed by most of the Sahabahs, and the concensors in general is that Muhammad, saw, saw with his heart, not his eyes.

surah 81 v 23 And without doubt he saw him in the clear horizon.

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 6 Surah Anaam verses 102-103: 102 That is Allah your Lord! There is no god but He, the Creator of all things: then worship ye Him: and He hath power to dispose of all affairs. 103 No vision can grasp Him, but His grasp is over all vision! He is above all comprehension, yet is acquainted with all things.

Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 6.378 Narrated by Masruq I said to Aisha, "O Mother of the Believers! Did Prophet Muhammad (saws) see his Lord (on the Night of Mairaaj)?" Aisha said, "What you have said makes my hair stand on end! Know that if somebody tells you one of the following three things, he is a liar: Whoever tells you that Muhammad (saws) saw his Lord, is a liar; and whoever tells you that the Prophet (saws) knows what is going to happen tomorrow, is a liar; and whoever tells you that Muhammad (saws) concealed (some of Allah's orders), is a liar."

It was narrated that Abu Dharr said: “I asked the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him), ‘Did you see your Lord?’ He said, ‘ He is veiled by Light, how could I see Him.’” (Narrated by Muslim, al-Eeman, 261).

It was narrated that Ibn ‘Abbaas said: “ ‘The (Prophet’s) heart belied not what he saw, and indeed he saw Him at a second descent.’ [al-Najm 53:11-12] (This means that) he saw Him twice with his heart.” (Narrated by Muslim, al-Eemaan, 258).

@abdyagirl .Diff. of opinion exist among 2 groups of Sahabas that whether Prophet Peace be upon him Saw Allah or not ? As far as hadeeth of Aisha is concerned then it is rejecting complete comprehension of Allah i.e. Idrak [Refer to Sharh of Muslim by Imam Nawawi and Fath ul Bari by Ibn Hajar).... As far as hadeeth of Abu dhar is concern , then it is a tahreef [i.e. mistranslation in text] by Muhsin Khan because if you go to next hadeeth it says : He said: I wanted to ask him whether he had seen his Lord. Abu Dharr said: I, in fact, inquired of him, and he replied: I saw Light.[Muslim-1:342]

If Allah is Light[See previous hadeeth]and if Prophet[Peace be upon him]Saw light,then it means he indeed saw Allah but previous translation of hadeeth says How can I saw light[i.e.Allah] and next says I saw Light.This is contradiction and a gross error by Muhsin Khan to mislead the world. Infact if you read the text regarding this issue,you"ll find that some sahabas agree whereas some disagree on this and Abu Dhar is amongst those who agree that Prophet[Peace be upon him]Saw Allah,then how can he contradict his belief? Hence,it means it is mistranslated by Muhsin Khan. Salaam Allah knows best

The Although Hadrat Musa (AS) and Holy Prophet (PBUH) had seen Almighty Allah (SWT) and He (SWT) are veiled in light. It also proves that Allah (SWT) is the true Lord of Universe because He (SWT) is free from normal Human like appearance i.e. arms, legs, face etc.

Nobody can see or has seen Allah in this world. Musa (as) only heard the words of Allah in this world. When he asked to see Allah, he passed out unconcious, as it was too powerful for him.

The Prophet (saw), in this world, did not see Allah. However, the Prophet (saw) was taken up to the heavens, and entered the other world, during the Miraj. It was here that He then saw Allah.
