It is Kufr to say Allah is everywhere

It is Kufr to say Allah is everywhere

Saying Allah is everywhere is major Kufr:

🌎Al Albani (Rahimullah) said: “Saying that Allah is everywhere is a major shirk which negates the Oneness/Uniqueness (Tauhid) of Allah in His names and Attributes.” (Silsilat Al-Huda Wan-Nur, Page 741 and 742)

 


🌎Also as Shaykh Al Fawzaan (Rahimullah) said: “The one who says that Allah is in every place is a disbeliever, that is because he does not exalt Allah above being in places of filth, places where ones relieves oneself, bathrooms, etc.” (Salafi Methodology Page 60).

🌎Imam Abu Hanifa (Rahimullah) also said: “Whoever says: ‘I do not know whether my Lord is ABOVE the sky or In the Earth’, than he has Indeed Disbelieved.” (Al Fiqh Al Akbar page 40)


🌎Imam Malik Ibn Anas (Rahimullah)
Abdullah ibn Nafi’ reported: Malik Ibn Anas (Rahimullah) said: “Allah is above the heavens, but His knowledge encompasses everything. Nothing escapes His knowledge.” [Abdullah Ibn Ahmad, As-Sunnah, and others]

🌎Imam Maalik (Rahimullah) said: “Allah is above the Heavens and👉🏼 His Knowledge is In every place;

There is no place that is excluded from his knowledge.” (At-Ta’liqaat Al-Baaziyah ‘alaa ar-rasaa’il Al-Aqeeda li’Shaykh Al Islam Ibn Taymiyyah Volume 1, Page 128)


🌎Also, Abu Umar Al Talamanki (Rahimullah) (d.429/1038) of the famous Malikis who affirm the Aqeeda of the Salaf, states in his book Al-Usul: “The Muslims from Ahl Al Sunnah have Consensus that Allah is established over His throne with His Essence. (Bi-Dhatithi)

🌎Imam Ash-Shafi’i (Rahimullah)
Imam Ash-Shafi’i (Rahimullah) said:”The creed which I hold is that Allah is above His ‘Arsh, above the heavens. He descends to the lowest heaven whenever He wishes.” [Al-Juyush al-Islamiyyah, Ibn Al-Qayyim, p. 93]

 


🌎Abu Muti Al-Balkhi (Rahimullah) reported:

“I asked Imam Abu Hanifa (Rahimullah) about a person who says, ‘I do not know whether by Rabb is, above the Heavens or on Earth?’ Abu Hanifa (Rahimullah) replied: “A person who makes such as statement, BECOMES AN  👉🏻APOSTATE, because Allah, The Exalted, says: ‘The Merciful has ascended above the Arsh (Throne), and the Arsh of Allah is above the Heavens.’” I further asked Imaa Abu Hanifa (Rahimullah), ‘What if such a person admits, Allah is above His Arsh, but exclaims, I do not know whether His Arsh is above the heavens or on earth’. Imam Abu Hanifah (Rahimullah) responded: ‘If he denies that the Arsh is above the heavens, 👉🏻he is an apostate.” (Sharhut-Tahawiyyah, p.288).


🌎Also, Abu Umar Al Talamanki (Rahimullah) (d.429/1038) of the famous Malikis who affirm the Aqeeda of the Salaf, states in his book Al-Usul: “The Muslims from Ahl Al Sunnah have Consensus that Allah is established over His throne with His Essence. (Bi-Dhatithi)

🌎Imam Ash-Shafi’i (Rahimullah) said:”The creed which I hold is the same creed the Muslims before me were holding, namely, the Testimony of Faith: “There is no god worthy of being worshipped except Allah, that Muhammed is the Messenger of Allah, and that Allah is above His ‘Arsh, above the heavens. He descends to the lowest heaven whenever He wishes.” [Al-Juyush al-Islamiyyah, Ibn Al-Qayyim, p. 93]Abu Bakr Muhammad at-Tamimi, a Shafi’i Imam of Naisabur, said: “I do not pray behind a person who denies the attributes of Allah and does not recognize that Allah is above His ‘Arsh.” [Ibid]

🌎Imam Ahmad Ibn Hanbal (Rahimullah)
He was asked: “Is Allah above His Arsh, above the seventh heaven, separate from His creatures, and is His knowledge and power encompassing everything everywhere?” He replied: “Certainly, He is above His ‘Arsh and nothing escapes His knowledge.” [Al-Juyush al-Islamiyyah, Ibn Al-Qayyim, p. 123]

🌎Imam Ahmad Ibn Hanbal (Rahimullah) also said: “We believe that Allah is above His Throne however He wishes and in whatever way He wishes, without any specific way or a description that a person can understand or describe. Knowledge of the Attributes of Allah has come from Him, and they are established for Him (as His true Attributes). He is as He described Himself: “No vision can grasp Him.” [6:103]” [Dar’ut Ta’aarudul ‘Aql Wan Naql, by Ibn Taymiyyah, 2/30]
