Martyr sees face of God?

Question:

One of the innovators made the claim that the martyrs would see the face of God according to the Imam (a.) Is this true?

Answer:

The friend of Umar lied!

Ali Ibn Abi Talib (a.) reported that the Prophet Muhammad (s.) said: “The martyr is entitled to seven honors from God: The first is that he is forgiven every sin by a drop of his blood, the second is that his head rests in the bosom of two of his wives of the paradisiacal women, both wipe the dust from his face and say: ” You are welcome!” Then he says similar things to both of them, the third consists of being clothed with garments of paradise, the fourth consists of the Paradise camp administration offering him any fragrant scent he can take with him, the fifth consists of being shown his dwelling place, and the sixth consists of speaking to his spirit: “Stay in paradise wherever you wish. The seventh is for him to look at the face of God and it is a comfort to every prophet and martyr.” [Tahdhib-ul-Ahkam of At-Tusi, Volume 6 Page 121 – 122 Hadith 208]

Abu As-Salt Al-Harawi reported that he said to Imam Ali Ar-Rida (a.):ย โ€œO son of the Messenger of God, what is meant by the transmitted report that the reward of the testimony: โ€œNo one is worthy of worship except God.โ€ Is to look upon the face of God?โ€ He said: โ€œO Abu As-Salt! whoever describes God with a face like the faces, he is disbelieving, for theย faceย of God are His prophets, His messengers, and His proofs (a.) It is through them that one turns to God, His religion, and His knowledge. The Exalted One says: โ€œEveryone who is on it is perishable, but the face of your Lord remains.โ€ (55:26-27) And the Exalted One says: โ€œEverything is transitory except His face. (28:88) Therefore, on the Day of Resurrection, it is a mighty reward for the believers to look to the prophets of God, His messenger and His proofs (a.) in their stages. The Prophet Muhammad (s.) said: โ€œHe who is angry with the people of my house and my family will not see me or see him on the last day. And the Messenger said: โ€œAmong you is he who will not see me after he leaves me. O Abu As-Salt, God is neither described by a place, nor do the looks (6:103) and imaginations reach Him.โ€ย [At-Tawhid of As-Saduq, pp. 117 โ€“ 118 Hadith 21]
