"Whoever treads on a path in search of Islamic knowledge, Allah will ease the way to Paradise for him. The angels will lower their wings, pleased with this seeker of knowledge, and everyone in the heavens and on earth will ask forgiveness for the knowledgeable person, even the fish in the deepest of waters will ask for his forgiveness”
[Abu Dawud, Ibn Majah, Tirmidhi # 2835-sahih hadith]
"What is being referred to by shade here is: It is a shade that He Allah will create on the Day of Judgementand He will shade with it who ever He wills from his slaves. And it (the shade) is not referring to Himself jal'a wa a'la, because Allah is the Light of the Heavens and the Earth. And it is not possible that Allah be the shade from the Sun. That would insinuate that the sun is above him and that he is between it and between the creation.And whoever has this understanding then he is stupid, stupider than a donkey. Because it is not possible that Allah aza wa'jal would be under anything from his creations. Allah is al'Alee (The High) and al-A'laa (The Most High), and He is the Light of the heavens and earth"
