The issue regarding the highness of Allah has been argued by many people even though it is one of the most clearest and important matters of belief. However, this brief explanation will clarify how a person’s Islam cannot be complete unless he believes in this matter.
The evidence for the Highness of Allah has reached the level of absolute acceptance in number of narrations. Imam Ibn Qayyim al-Jawziyyah said that the evidences for affirming the highness of Allah have over 2000 proofs. He mentioned in his work al-Nuniyyah.
Oh People! We swear by Allah the majestic that our statement has not 1000 proofs to affirm it rather 2000!
In addition some contemporary scholars mentioned that the evidences reach well over 3000 proofs, all of them explicitly proving that Allah is above the heavens, above his throne, that He rose over His throne and that He is separate and distinct from His creation.
