The Throne


Holy Qur’an:

“God is He Who raised the Heavens without any pillars that yea can see; is firmly established on the throne of Authority.”

Rad verse 2
Holy Qur’an:

“And is firmly established on the throne of authority, regulating and governing all things.”

Yunus, Verse 3
Holy Qur’an:

But if they turn away, Say: “God suffices me; there is not god but He; On Him is my trust, He is the Lord of the Throne of Glory!”

Tawba, verse 129
Holy Qur’an:

“God!  There is no god but He, the Living, the Self Subsistent, Eternal.  No slumber can seize Him nor sleep.  His are all things in the heavens and on earth.  Who is there can intercede in His presence except as He Permits?  He knows what appears to His creatures as before or after or behind them.  Nor shall they ought His knowledge except as He wills.  His throne does extend over the heavens and the earth, and He feels fatigue in guarding and preserving them.  For He is the most high and the supreme in glory.”

God’s Throne is mentioned many times in the Holy Qur’an.  His Throne does not signify any place but is used as a symbol to describe His Definite control over everything.  God’s Throne is one of the many things that people don’t know in reality but only by name.  The Throne is also used to describe might, power and authority, and dominion.  Many people think that God sits on His Throne and controls everything.  Nowhere in the Qur’an does it say the God sits on the Throne.

The same misunderstanding exists with regard to kursi (chair, seat, or throne), which also supposed by material thing.  The Throne of Allah, therefore, stands only for His Supreme Power and Authority and not as a Throne that is in the Heavens that the Creator sits on.
