A very strange but amazing question!!! As we often wonder where Allah swt is?
Answer is very unique! Allah swt is more Closer to us than Our Jugular Vein!, SubhanaLlah.
Allah swt is Almighty, He is incomparable. He is the God and the One Who Creates, Protects and Cherishes all and everything. Allah swt has no beginning and no ending, He is Everliving and Self Subsisting.
Allah swt created all and everything, He is Omnipresent and Omnipotent, nothing is comparable to Allah swt that is why He has No Form or Shape or Exists on a particular physical place which is comparable.
Only Allah swt is is Perfect and all of us are Created with weakness, we are not perfect,we are helpless and dependent.
Certainly our eyes are not qualified to see the almighty Allah swt as He Exists on His unique Power. To see or imagine such a God is beyond our given power of brain, and yet we often wonder where Allah swt is?
Unfortunately at some time some of us feel as though Allah swt is very far from us….. ……….NaoozubilLah min zalika.
At sometimes some of us can feel His presence especially when we are prosterating in total khushu’ before Him…. Alhamdulillah.
Let us try to find the answer for the question of where is Allah swt? or where Allah swt Exists?
SubhanalLah ! ! ! what a wonderful ! Allah swt Himself gives us the unique answer. Very convincing answer! A very practical and satisfying answer for a man who is trying to find the almighty God and His Power.
Allah swt says :
وَلَقَدْ خَلَقْنَا ٱلْإِنسَـٰنَ وَنَعْلَمُ مَا تُوَسْوِسُ بِهِۦ نَفْسُهُۥ ۖ وَنَحْنُ أَقْرَبُ إِلَيْهِ مِنْ حَبْلِ ٱلْوَرِيدِ
And We have already created man and know what his soul whispers to him, and We are closer to him than [his] jugular vein. (al-Quran 50:16)
So clear is the answer! Allah swt is even closer than our Jugular vein…. this shows us how close Allah swt is to us….
Allah swt knows everything, He hears, sees, listens and records everything and nothing happens without His knowledge.
Whatever we whisper, do, talk, even our every thoughts we have planned secretly or publicly are recorded by Allah swt.
It shows that no one can hide anything from Allah swt because Allah swt is not situated in a particular place or His power is limited to one area or time.
Man, especially during his death, recognizes his weakness and consciously aware of his destiny. Every man would be able to realize at the time of his death that there is a True God who Created him.
At the time of death every soul will be aware that Allah swt knows about their life style, fears, worries, happiness, deeds, they are clearly made aware of their rewards or punishments based on their life style in this world, SubhanaAllah.
At the time of death every soul realizes that Allah swt is closer to him than anyone else because death brings a conscience of God (Creator).
Ya Allah, we beg You to grant us our death (return to You) with Iman, obedience, ease and let our tongues be wet with Your name with Zikrullah and remembrance always, especially at our final breath when You are calling us back to You…. Ameen ameen ameen Ya Allah
