Verse 103, Surat An'am and Ahadiyyah.

Abu Hafsat

Recommended Posts

As-Salaam alaikum,

 Verse/ayat 103 of chapter six of the Holy Qur'an reads:--

       "No vision [eyes] can grasp Him,

         But He sees [grasps] all eyes: He is above all comprehension."   (6:103)

In other words, no sight can reach Allah Ta'ala, while He is in all that sees. In this regards, Sheikh Ibn Arabi, may Allah be Merciful to him observes that "No eyes can see Him, so no one can perceive Him.  He is the only existence, and if no one can see Him,then there is no one besides Him. If there were other existences besides Allah, they should have been able to see Him. So the meaning of  ''the eyes cannot see Him.."  is that there is no existence other than His. The eyes cannot see Him because the eyes are created..."
