Evidence: Allah is high above his creation – part 2

Date:

While some people say Allah is high above his creation, above the 7 heavens according to the verse of the Quran, some say that Allah exists without a place, because He is not similar to His creation who has the characteristics of needing a place.

Read the evidence that proof Allah is high above from the Quran

Evidence: Allah is high above His creation – part 1

Evidence: Allah is high above his creation – part 3

(2) The Sunnah: Many reports were narrated “mutawatir” (i.e. with a large number of narrators at every stage of the isnad/chain, such that it is impossible for them all to have agreed on a lie) from the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him), describing his words and deeds and things of which he approved.

For instance, he used to say “Subhana Rabbi al-A’la (Glory be to my Lord Most High)” in sujood (prostration), and in some hadeeth (reports) he is reported to have said, “By Allah Who is above the Throne.”

Among his deeds is the gesture of pointing up with his finger, when addressing the people in the greatest gathering, on the Day of ‘Arafah during his Farewell Pilgrimage.

He asked the people, “Have I not conveyed the message?” and they said, “Yes!” He asked again, “Have I not conveyed the message?” and they said, “Yes!” He asked a third time, “Have I not conveyed the message?” and they said “Yes!”

Each time, he said: “O Allah, bear witness!” – pointing up to the sky and then at the people. He also used to raise his hands towards heaven when he made dua (supplication), as reported in many hadeeth.

This is proof via his actions that Allah is exalted and high.

An example of approval of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) which indicates that Allah is exalted and high is the hadeeth (report) concerning the young slave girl, to whom the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: “Where is Allah?” She said: “In heaven.” He asked, “Who am I?” She said, “The Messenger of Allah.” So he said to her master: “Set her free, for she is a believer.”

This young girl was uneducated, as many are, and she was a slave, but she knew that her Lord is above heaven.

Some misguided people deny that Allah is above heaven, and say, “He is neither above nor below; neither to the right nor to the left. He is everywhere!”

And the pieces of evidence you have seen so far should point you to make the right decision.

Read the third and the last series to see some other proof.

Evidence: Allah is high above His creation – part 1

Evidence: Allah is high above his creation – part 3

We ask Allah to guide us towards the truth.

And Allah knows best.
