Affirming the Trandencensy of Allaah

Posted on February 7, 2015


‘Alee Ibn al-Hasan Ibn ash-Shaqeeq said, “I said to ‘Abdullaah Ibn al-Mubaarak – may Allah have mercy upon him – , 

‘How are we to know our Lord?‘ 

He (‘Abdullaah Ibn al-Mubaarak) replied:

“He is above the seventh Heaven, above His Throne,
and we do not say as the Jahmiyyah say, ‘He is here upon the earth’.” 

[Ar-Radd ‘Alal Mareesee, of ad-Daarimee, p. 24. And Ar-Radd ‘Alal Jahmiyyah, p. 50]
