Q 66: What is the textual proof from the Prophetic Sunnah that Allah is High in Place?

A ---The evidences are countless: Allah's Messenger (Peace be upon him) says: "And the Throne is above that, and Allah is Above the Throne, He rules the Dominion from above seven firmaments”. l (Abu Dawud and At-Tirmidhi)

Once, the Prophet (Peace be uP9n him) said to a slave girl: "Where is Allah?” She said: "At Heaven." He (Peace be upon him) said (to its master): "Set her free for she is a believer.”(Muslim and Ahmed)

The Hadiths of the Prophet's (Peace be upon him) Ascension to Heavens [Al-Mi `raj] prove Allah's Highness in Place.

He (Peace be upon him) says: "Angels come to you in succession by night and day and all of them get together at the time of the Fajr and' Asr prayers. Those who have passed the night with you (or stayed with you) ascend (to the Heaven) and Allah asks them, though He knows everything about you, well, "In what state did you leave my slaves?" The angels reply: "When we left them they were praying and when we reached them, they were praying."(Bukhari and Muslim)'A Weak Hadith.

   He (Peace be upon him) says: "If somebody gives in charity   something equal to a date from his honestly earned money -for nothing ascends to Allah except good -then Allah will take it in His Right (Hand) and bring it up for its owner as anyone of you brings up a baby horse, till it becomes like a mountain”. (Bukhari and Muslim)

He (Peace be upon him) says: "When Allah ordains something on the Heaven the angels beat with their wings in obedience to His Statement which sounds like that of a chain dragged over a rock. His Statement: “Until when the fear is banished from their hearts, the Angels say, “ What was it that your Lord said?” {They reply, '(He has said) the Truth. And He is the Most High, The Great}. (34:23)" (Sahih Bukhari)

All Muslims admitted these Attributes to Allah the Almighty but the Jahmyyiah (i.e. followers of Jahm Ibn Safwan).
