Is it permissible for a person to call themselves or their child Al-Azeez (the mighty)? – Shaykh Saalih Muhammad al-Luhaydaan
Is it permissible for a person to call themselves or their child al-azeez (the mighty)?
Shaykh Saalih Muhammad al-Luhaydaan (May Allaah preserve him)
Q.The individual is asking is it permissible for a person to call themselves or their child al-azeez (the mighty)?
A.The shaykh said this is that which a person should abstain from. It is that which a person should abstain from, as it is from the names of Allaah (azza wa ja’aal). However, if an individual is given the title of the azeez of Riyaadh or the azeez of Egypt, meaning the leader/king of Riyaadh or the leader/king of Egypt. This is a title so this is not a problem but this is not the name of the individual.

Student Abul-'Abbaas Moosa Richardson (hafidhahullaah Ta'aala) relayed that Shaikh Muhammad Ibn Saalih al-'Uthaimeen (rahimahullaah Ta'aala), in his work Ash-SharH al-Mumti' (3rd Volume, pg. 22), said:
"Let's return back to the meaning of this word 'Allaahu akbar.' What is the meaning of it, and what is the significance of beginning our salat with this phrase?
Was ‘Eesaa ‘alaihissalaam Allaah’s Word?
Shaykh Muhammad ibn Saalih al ‘Uthaymeen
Allaah applied the (term) “Word” to him because he ‘alaihissalaam was created by means of a word. So the hadeeth is not taken upon its apparent (literal) meaning, since ‘Eesaa ‘alaihissalaam was not a word because he used to eat and drink and pass urine and open his bowels. And all the (usual) human situations would occur to him.
Allaah, the Most High, states:
Indeed the example of ‘Eesaa with Allaah is just as the example of Aadam. He (Allaah) created him from dust then He said to him, “Be!” and he was. [Soorah aale ‘Imraan (3) aayah 59]
And ‘Eesaa ‘alaihissalaam was not the Word of Allaah because the Speech of Allaah is an Attribute existing with Him and not separate and distinct from Him.
As for ‘Eesaa, then he was a being separate and distinct from Allaah subhaanahu ; he would come and go and eat food and drink.

From Salam al-Khawaass who said:
قال مالك بن دينار خرج أهل الدنيا من الدنيا ولم يذوقوا أطيب شيء فيها قيل وما هو قال معرفة الله تعالى
Malik bin Dinar said:
“The people of the world depart from the world without them having tasted the most beautiful thing from it.” It was said, “And what is it?” He replied, “The ma’rifah of Allaah [knowledge of His names, attributes, actions and their interplay and connection to the creation].”

My Young Daughter Constantly asks me,
‘Why can’t we see Allah in this life?’
An Exclusive Translation for Sisters Upon Al-Istiqaamah
Shaykh Al-Fawzan was asked on behalf of a young girl the following question: 
My young daughter constantly asks me, ‘Why can’t we see Allah in this life?’ What is the best answer to give her as she is young?
The Shaykh (May Allah preserve him) said,
Say to her, ‘This is because you are not able to see him [in this life]. You would burn to pieces.’ It is not possible for a created being to see Allah in this life. Whereas in the Hereafter Allah gives the believer the strength and ability so he is able to see Allah. Yes.
In another place Shaykh Al-Fawzan mentions: 
“The Jahmiyyah and the Mu’tazilah, all of them, reject Ar-Ru’yah (the seeing of Allah) in the Hereafter. Another group exists who say, ‘Verily Allah is seen in this life and in the Hereafter.’ This is a position that is held by some of the Sufis.
The third position, and this is the true and correct stance, is that Allah, the Mighty and Majestic will be seen in the Hereafter by the people of paradise as is found in the ahadeeth that have been narrated upon the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) and which have reached the level of Mutawaatir (such a great number of ahadeeth it is not possible that they have all been invented). However, in this life, then verily Allah cannot be seen because the people cannot endure and survive seeing Him, the Exalted in this life. When Moosa (peace and blessings be upon him) asked to see Allah, the Exalted, in this life, Allaah said:
“And when Moses arrived at Our appointed time and his Lord spoke to him, he said, “My Lord, show me [Yourself] that I may look at You.” [Allāh] said, “You will not see Me, but look at the mountain; if it should remain in place, then you will see Me.” But when his Lord appeared to the mountain, He rendered it level, and Moses fell unconscious. And when he awoke, he said, “Exalted are You! I have repented to You, and I am the first of the believers.” [Al-A’raaf: 143]The solid mountain became dust due to the Greatness of Allah, the Mighty and Majestic. So how can a human being withstand seeing Allah [in this life]?”
