Hadith regarding allahs descend
« on: June 21, 2017, 06:36:38 PM »
In sahih bukhari 1145 and also reported in sahih muslim:

Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) (p.b.u.h) said, "Our Lord, the Blessed, the Superior, comes every night down on the nearest Heaven to us when the last third of the night remains, saying: "Is there anyone to invoke Me, so that I may respond to invocation? Is there anyone to ask Me, so that I may grant him his request? Is there anyone seeking My forgiveness, so that I may forgive him?"

So in the last part of the night allah descends but how does this work for all countries around the world? When its morning in america its night in australia. It is always night on some olace on earth correct? Someone posted this to me to show muhammad had a faulty understanding of the world and that he thought the whole world had one time, how do i respond to this claim?

As'salamu Alaikum,

Allah Almighty is always near and is everywhere:

[050:016]  It was We Who created man, and We know what dark suggestions his soul makes to him: for We are nearer to him than (his) jugular vein.

The Hadith is using earthly terms that do not describe Allah Almighty, for nothing can describe Allah Almighty:

[112:004]  And there is none like unto Him.

The Holy Month of Ramadan is a sacred month, and is special to Allah Almighty because He sent the Glorious Quran down in this holy month:

[002:185] The month of Ramadan in which was revealed the Qur'an, a guidance for mankind, and clear proofs of the guidance, and the Criterion (of right and wrong). And whosoever of you is present, let him fast the month, and whosoever of you is sick or on a journey, (let him fast the same) number of other days. Allah desireth for you ease; He desireth not hardship for you; and (He desireth) that ye should complete the period, and that ye should magnify Allah for having guided you, and that peradventure ye may be thankful.

So Allah Almighty is extra Merciful in this Holy Month.  Not that He is not closer any other time.

I hope this helps, insha'Allah.

Take care,
Osama Abdallah

this is easy to explain

Did you ever worked in google Earth program???

we as humans can simulate descending and acscending on the Earth while we sit in our chair, to scrolls down to Earth you simulate desecnding to Earth.

So if we as humans can simulate desecnding to Earth, what about Allah who can also descend as he wish and how he wish.

this can be explained like this

Allah brings the Earth closer to himself, or in Another Words he accept more Dua in the late night on the Earth where it is night (not whole Earth) but only part where there is night last 3rd of the night.

Why ?

beacuse people leave sleep for God to do prayer and make dua to him, that is why he accept dua more during that part of the Earth when there is last 3rd of the night.

no angels in layers of Heaven have ever witness the Creator
 the Heavens could not contain Creator.
, so when  verses describes Allah ascending to His throne, or descending to lower heavens in hadith.
Its describing the Creator being a Ruler
its describing the Creator having an attribute as Listener.
