The following are chapters from Shaikhul-Islām Abu Isma’īl Al-Harawī’s: “The Book Of Forty Narrations In The Evidences Of Tawhīd” (Born 396H and died 481H -rahimahullāh)

This compilation is an amazing series of narrations in the establishment of the Tawhīd of Allāh, the Mighty and Majestic, especially in the arena of the Names and Attributes that has left the Jahmiyyah and their offspring such as the Ashā`irah and Māturīdīs dumbstruck just as Allāh has said:

وَقُلْ جَاءَ الْحَقُّ وَزَهَقَ الْبَاطِلُ ۚ إِنَّ الْبَاطِلَ كَانَ زَهُوقًا

“And say: ‘The Truth has come and falsehood has been vanquished. Surely! Falsehood is ever bound to be wiped out.’” (Al-Israa 17:81)

Chapter 13: Narration concerning the Veil (Hijāb) of Allāh 

Abu Ismā`īl Al-Harawī (481H) with his chain of narration to Abu Mūsā (رضي الله عنه) that Allāh’s Messenger (صلى الله عليه وسلم) said: His veil is fire, and if He were to remove it, the glorious splendour of His Face would burn everything that His gaze reaches.”
