Can anyone see Anwaar-e-Ilaahi?

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: Maulana Shah Abdur Rahim Sahib had a servant who for many many days did not go to pass urine because he could see Anwar e Ilahi everywhere. So he did not want to urinate on it (taken from fazail e zirk). Can anyone see Anwar e Ilahi?


A: Don’t delve into these things, as they are not requirements of the shari`ah. It is not fardh or wajib for you to understand this or believe in this.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
