Is Allah “in” us?

Answered by Shaykh Faraz Rabbani

My question is regarding Allah, who is Omnipotent. If Allah (SWT) is everywhere is he also in us? Because if he is not in us than there are places that he does not exist. Please inform me of my obvious flaw in logic.

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Walaikum assalam wa rahmatullah,

We don’t believe that Allah is “everywhere,” because Allah is the Creator of time and space and is exalted beyond all limits, including the limits of time and space.

At the same time, Allah tells us that He is with us wherever we may be, and that He is closer to us than our very jugular vein. This “withness” and “closeness” is through the reality that Allah is the one who creates all things, and He sustains all things (including heedless humans) at every moment. It is not a “withness” or “closeness” of space, but of creating and sustaining.
