Assalamu Alaykum! I`m sorry but can i ask the same question once more. What answer should we give to he who asks “Where is Allah”?

In the name of Allah the most Beneficent and Merciful

If someone asks where is Allah? The answer should be he is beyond any created beings` understanding as he is free from space and time. The Quran says “There is nothing whatsoever like unto Him” (42:11)

However, he reaches to all His creation through His Unique attributes e.g He hears everything as he is the Al Sami (the all hearing) He sees everything as he is Al Basir, He knows everything as He is Al Aleem etc.

He is free from any fixed place nor is He present in something.

This topic as mentioned by Imam Nawawi should not be further discussed by normal people and even ordinary scholars.

To say in a literal sense that Allah is everywhere (i.e. in body) is incorrect also to say in a literal sense that He is physically sat on His throne is also incorrect.

For an in-depth discourse please read the answer provided by Sheikh Nuh.

Of Course Allah knows best
