Abû Ibrâhîm Al-Muzanî, the companion of Imâm Al-Shâfi’î reports:
I heard Al-Shâfi’î comment on the statement of Allah:
Nay, they (the unbelievers) will be on that day veiled from their Lord. [Al-Mutaffifîn: 15]
He said, “In this verse there is evidence that the awliyâ` of Allah (His beloved righteous worshippers) will see their Lord on the Day of Resurrection.”
