Ruling on anyone who claims that “Allaah exists everywhere”?

Question 515: What is the ruling on those who claim that Allaah exists everywhere?

Answer: Allaah (Glorified be He) is high above His Creatures, above His Heavens and is settled on His Throne. This is clearly supported by the Qur’aan and Sunnah texts as well as the consensus of all Muslims. Thus, whoever believes that Allaah indwells everywhere is a Kaafir (disbeliever) for belying Allaah, His Messenger and the consensus of all more here.

Saying: “Allaah is in the hearts of believers”?

Question 514: The saying: “Allaah is in the hearts of believers.” Does it indicate that the one who says it is a believer in Hulool (a Sufi term meaning indwelling)? What is the deviating sect that believes in such a saying?

Answer: It is more proper not to say “Allaah is in the hearts of believers” as it may allude to a belief in Hulool. Alternatively, one can say, “Believers love Allaah.” Allah (Exalted be He) says: But those who believe, love Allaah more (than anything else). He (Glorified be He) also says: Allaah will bring a people whom He will love and they will love Him However, if, by saying such a statement, one means that Allaah’s love is dominating the hearts of believers and that they fear Him, it will be alright as it is a sound more here.
