Allaah Is Above The Throne, By Ibn Al-Qayyim

Ibn Al-Qayyim said in his Nooniyyah:

“…The Ash’aree says the explanation of istiwaa, is in reality istawlaa (conquering) all existence.

As for Allaah’s being above the creation, above the seventh heaven, separate from the creation, then this is a matter about which there is no dispute or doubt between the Scholars of the Salaf, since that is established by the clear texts of the Book, the Sunnah, the sayings of the Companions, the Taabi’een, and the Scholars of Ahlu Sunnah, both past and present.

They are also agreed that whoever denies that Allaah is above the creation, being separate and distinct from it, then he is a Kaafir (disbeliever).”
