The grave of Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) being greater than the Arsh of Allah Ta’ala

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: Can you please clarify this view mentioned in (Manasik of Mulla Ali al-Qari, p. 531-532)

“The Messenger of Allah (Allah bless him and give him peace) is the best and most beloved of all creation, thus even the place where his body rests was given this status that it became the most virtuous of places, even greater than the Arsh.”

Is this the view of the Deobandi Ulama and those of the Ahlus Sunnah wal Jamaah? I am very confused. How can the grave of Nabi (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) be greater than the Arsh of Allah ?


A: Yes. It is their view.

We do not understand what is the reason for your confusion.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
