I have heard a hadees in majlis where Rasulallah (a.s) says he can smell the smell of Allah coming from Yemen where a follower of his resides. The follower came from Yemen to see the Prophet , but was unable to meet him as he was not in Madina at the time. The visitor's mother had made him promise that he would come back quickly under all circumstances, and since the Prophet was not in Madina he had to return. When Rasulallah came back he said he could smell the scent of Allah coming from Yemen, because this follower so closely obeyed the commands of his mother. My question is regarding the perception of Allah by the senses. I thought that it was impossible to perceive Allah by the senses.
Additionally, since Allah is not like his creation in any way, should not it be impossible to say that he has a quality present in the creation (such as a scent)?
Could you please clarify this matter for me?
