Where Allah is

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Askmufti.co.za
Q: Am I correct to believe that Allah is above the heavens over His arsh (throne)?
A: It is correct to believe that Allah is above the heavens and over His Arsh, but at the same time one must believe that being above and over His Arsh is in a manner that befits his Dignity, Majesty, and Honour, not in a way that our limited understanding comprehends. It is Haraam and a Bid’ah to believe that Allah is literally and physically sitting on the Arsh, or that He The Almighty is in a specific direction. Nowhere in Qur’aan and Hadeeth is this mentioned.
