Allah created everything; and nothing that is created is like Him.
llah created everything. The things He created are not like Him at all. And He is not like any of the things He created. Anything that is created cannot be like its Creator. Allah said in the Qur’an, “There is nothing like Him.” (Surah al-Shura, Aya 11) That means He is not similar to anyone in His creation. It also means that Allah is not in a place, because only created things are in places. Allah exists without a place. That is hard for people to imagine, but we have to remember, we cannot imagine Allah because He is not like anything else. You must never imagine what Allah is like because it is not possible. We only know Allah through His beautiful attributes that we study.
