Why can't we see Allah (swt)?

Reader comment on item: Resisting Islamic Law
in response to reader comment: Mansoor: Allah swearing by his own creation. LOL

regarding Allah's not revealing himself before us I would like to know if you can imagine the size of this entire cosmos? If yes, then can you just imagine the enormity of the master of this cosmos, the one who created it? Can you make an ant or a germ see a mountain infront of it? Can an ant's eyes be that powerful? So how can a mere tiny winy human being have the power in his eyes to see Allah (swt), my dear?

Allah (swt) has never appeared before any Prophet so far. He communicates telepathically with those whom he loves. He has just shown a glimpse of his Noor (light) to Moses (as)

It is beyond the purview of any of us to SEE the Almighty Creator of this universe.
