Al-'Ama- The Great Mist.

Abu Hafsat

Recommended Posts

As-Salaam alaikum,

  In Sunan Tirmidhi is the Noble Hadith where the Messenger of Allah, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, is asked: 'Where was Allah, Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala, before the creation of the Universe?'   He replied:- 'He was in the 'Ama.'   It goes on to say that it had no aboveness or belowness... is incomprehensible. In other words, it was a premordial non-spatiality in non-time.

Sayyadina Ali Ibn Abi Talib, may Allah be pleased with him and ennoble his face, was asked the same question and after a long silence he said:- 

                  'To ask where was Allah is to ask of a place. Now Allah was- but there was no space.

                         Then He created time/space and He is now as He was before time/space.'
