The Messenger of Allah, peace be upon him, said: <>. In his book „al-Asma’ was-Sifat’ (The Names and Attributes of Allah) the Imam and Hafidh, Ahmad Ibn al-Husayn al-Bayhaqiyy (died 458 AH) said:

“Some of our companions used the saying of the Prophet: <> 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”.

The Messenger of Allah, peace be upon him, also said:

<>. In his book “al-I^tiqad” (The Creed) Imam al-Bayhaqiyy said when elucidating the meaning of this Hadith: “This indicates that eternally nothing existed other than Allah; no water, no ^Arsh (The Throne) and no other creation, they are all classified as other than Allah”.
