Abu Hafsat Posted August 16, 2022 Report Share Posted August 16, 2022 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.' Culled from:- 'The Hundred Steps', by Sheikh Abd al-Qadir As-Sufi.
