Allah is beyond human beings' comprehension and understanding. A few references.

Surah Al-Anaam, Verse 103:
لَّا تُدْرِكُهُ الْأَبْصَارُ وَهُوَ يُدْرِكُ الْأَبْصَارَ وَهُوَ اللَّطِيفُ الْخَبِيرُ

No vision can grasp Him (Allah) but His (Allah) grasp is over all vision: He (Allah) is above all comprehension, yet is acquainted with all things.
(English - Yusuf Ali)

Allah further elaborated on the above-mentioned verse by bringing Himself into this discussion with the following verses.

Surah Al-Anaam, Verse 101:
بَدِيعُ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ أَنَّىٰ يَكُونُ لَهُ وَلَدٌ وَلَمْ تَكُن لَّهُ صَاحِبَةٌ وَخَلَقَ كُلَّ شَيْءٍ وَهُوَ بِكُلِّ شَيْءٍ عَلِيمٌ

To Him (Allah) is due the primal origin of the heavens and the earth: How can He (Allah) have a son when He (Allah) hath no consort? He (Allah,) created all things, and He (Allah) hath full knowledge of all things.
(English - Yusuf Ali)

Furthermore, Allah informed us that He created everything from ONE UNIT of creation and this clearly tells us Allah is OUTSIDE OF HIS CREATION.
Refer to.
21-30.
And then when Allah will bring about the destruction of this universe He will roll it up and again we understand that surely Allah is outside of His creation because He will bring about a new creation.
21-104. Destruction
14-48. New earth etc
50-15. Never tired
39-69. New earth and creation.

So putting the few verses above we can never be able to see Allah.

Allah's knowledge is beyond human beings to truly understand Him.
Refer to the following verses. These are just a few.
21-4. Every word spoken anywhere in the universe.
6-59. Everything in the land, under the sea and in the sky.
34-3. Every atom and sub atom throughout the universe
10-61. Also knowledge of every atom and sub atom.
2-284. Whatever in the minds of every person.

Allah's knowledge is beyond us.
