Muhammad salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam his Rabb as if his legs were on a meadow

 

عن ابن عباس أنه سئل هل رأى محمد ربه قال نعم رآه كأن قدميه على خضرة دونه ستر من لؤلؤ فقلت يا ابن عباس أليس يقول الله لَّا تُدْرِكُهُ الْأَبْصَارُ قال لا أم لك ذلك نوره الذي هو نوره إذا تجلى بنوره لا يدركه شيء

It is reported that Ibn ‘Abbas was asked, “Did Muhammad see his Rabb?”

“Yes,” he replied, “as if His legs were on a meadow, and before Him was a veil of pearls.”

I said, “O father of ‘Abbas, has Allah not declared: ‘Vision perceives Him not?’”

He retorted, “May you be bereaved of your mother. That is His brilliance which is His brilliance. When He manifest with His brilliance, then nothing can perceive him.”[1]

 

My comments: This rafidi sufficed by mentioning the reference and concealed that al Suyuti indicated to al Bayhaqi classifying it da’if. He pointed out Mustadrak al Hakim[2] but concealed al Dhahabi’s review of al Hakim commenting that Ibrahim who is matruk (suspected of forgey) is in the isnad.
