The Bible does have some passages that make it sound like people are able to see God and interact with him or at least see some physical manifestation that is being caused by God.
So does anyone believe that they've seen God and if they do could you describe that experience? I don't recall ever hearing what God would look like if he revealed himself to a human being in a physical form.
Such people (who claim hearing or seeing God Almighty) are either liars or impostors; because God spoke to Moses His servant
only, and to no other prophet or apostle, as I think.
But God revealed to a large number of prophets and apostles.
This is in the Quran 42: 51
وَمَا كَانَ لِبَشَرٍ أَن يُكَلِّمَهُ اللَّهُ إِلَّا وَحْيًا أَوْ مِن وَرَاء حِجَابٍ أَوْ يُرْسِلَ رَسُولًا فَيُوحِيَ بِإِذْنِهِ مَا يَشَاء إِنَّهُ عَلِيٌّ حَكِيمٌ
(It is not [vouchsafed] to any mortal that God should [directly] speak to him
>> unless [He might speak to him] by inspiration,
>> or from behind a veil,
>> or He might send a messenger [: an angel] who would reveal by His leave what [revelation] He please;
He is All-Exalted [over His throne], Most Wise.)
On the other hand, God cannot be seen by the eyesight.
This is in the Quran 6: 103
لاَّ تُدْرِكُهُ الأَبْصَارُ وَهُوَ يُدْرِكُ الأَبْصَارَ وَهُوَ اللَّطِيفُ الْخَبِيرُ
(Sights perceive Him not
, but He does perceive sights,
and He is the Compassionate, the Well-Aware.)
