| The Best of Deeds is to Believe correctly In God (Allah) and His Messengers
God (Allah) is the creator of everything. He existed before time and place. He does not resemble the creations in anyway. The saying that Allah, almighty, exists without a place is the belief and the creed of the Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, the Companions and the True Salaf and Khalaf scholars, those who graciously followed them, and it shall be until the Day of Judgment. The proof of this precious statement is what Allah said in the Qur'an, in Surat ash-Shura, ayah 11 (ليس كمثله شىء وهو السميع البصير) which means: "There is nothing like Allah, and He has the attribute of Hearing and Seeing." This ayah absolutely and totally clears Allah of resembling the creation. It comprises that Allah, ta^ala, is different from the creations in the Self, Attributes, and Doings. Hence, it shows that Allah, ta^ala, exists without a place, because the one who exists in a place would, by nature, be composed of atoms, i.e., he would be a body, occupying a space, and Allah, ta^ala, is clear of occupying spaces.
