Salaah behind a person who believes that “Allaah is everywhere”

Question 513: There is a person who leads the people in Jumu`ah (Friday) Prayer, and he believes that Allaah (Glorified and Exalted be He)exists everywhere. We showed him clear pieces of evidence in the Qur’aan and the Sunnah that Allaah exists everywhere with His knowledge, but His Entity is above everything. He totally refused this belief. Is our Salaah (Prayer) behind him valid or not?

Answer: The belief of Ahl al-Sunnah wa al-Jamaa`ah (adherents to the Sunnah and the Muslim mainstream) is that Allaah (Glorified be He) is high above His Creatures, rising over His Throne and separated from His Creation. Allaah (Exalted be He) says, Do you feel secure that He, Who is over the heaven (Allaah), will not cause the earth to sink with you, and then it should quake?He (Exalted be He) also more here.
