The Face of Allah


احمد بن محمد عن الحسين بن سعيد عن فضالة بن ايوب عن على بن ابى حمزة عن سيف بن عميرة عن ابى بصير عن الحرث بن المغيرة قال كنا عند ابى عبد الله عليه السلام فسأله رجل عن قول الله تعالى كل شئ هالك الا وجهه فقال ما يقولون قلت يقولون هلك كل شئ الا وجهه فقال سبحان الله لقد قالوا عظيما انما عنى كل شئ هالك الا وجهه الذى يؤتى منه ونحن وجهه الذى يؤتى منه.


1 - [Basa’ir ad-Darajat] Ahmad b. Muhammad from al-Husayn b. Sa`id from Fadala b. Ayyub from `Ali b. Abi Hamza from Sayf b. `Amira from Abu Basir from al-Harith b. al-Mughira.  He said: We were with Abu `Abdillah عليه السلام, and a man asked him about the saying of Allah تعالى “All things perish except His face” (28:88) So he said: What do they say? I said: They all things perish except His face.  So he said: Glorified be Allah, they have said something colossal.  He only meant all things perish except for His face from which He is come unto, and we are His face from which He is come unto.
