"How can you believe in God, when you can't see, hear, touch, smell, taste or even imagine what He is?"





We know from the teachings of Muhammad, peace be upon him, that no one has ever actually seen God  


- at least not in this lifetime. 


Nor are we able to use our senses to make some kind of contact with Him.


  


However, we are encouraged in Islam to use our senses and our common sense to recognize that all of this universe could not possibly come into  


existence on its own. 


Something had to design it all  


and then put it into motion. 


That is beyond our ability to do, yet it is something that we can understand.


 


We don't have to see an artist to recognize a painting, correct?





 So, if we see paintings without  


seeing artists painting them, in the same way, we can believe that Almighty God created everything without having to see Him (or touch, or hear, etc.)





Almighty God says in Quran: 


▫️Vision perceives Him not, but He perceives [all] vision; and He is the Subtle, the Acquainted. Quran{6:103}








The reason for this prohibition is the weakness of the human powers in this world beyond their endurance,the inability of our eyes,


 just as Moses,  peace be upon him, could not bear them in this world and fell unconscious. 





▫️"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." [ Allah ] 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." 


Qur’an {7:143}
