The Messenger of Allah taught the people that God exists without a place, he does not reside in the heavens nor does He sits on the Throne, God is the one who created the place so He existed before the place without a place and after creating the place He still exists without a place like He was. The Messenger of Allah peace be upon him, said: O Allah, You are adh-Dhahir (adh-Dhahir is a name of Allah which means that His Existence is definite and further confirmed by proofs and logic)and there is nothi ng above You, and You are al-Batin (al-Batin is a name of Allah which means that the reality of Allah is not conceivable in the mind) and there is nothing beneath You. The Imam and Hafidh, Ahmad Ibn al-Husayn al-Bayhaqiyy (died 458 AH) said in his book 'Al-Asma' was-Sifat' (The Names and Attributes of Allah):Some of our companions used the saying of the Prophet: You are adh-Dhahir and there is nothing above You, and You are al-Batin and there is nothing beneath You, as evidence to refute the allocation of the concept of place to Allah, they concluded that since there is nothing above Him and nothing beneath Him, therefore, He exists without a place.
