Bismillah irrahman irrahim

 

Assalamu alaikum

 

Sorry for late reply, had few other things to do so it took me time to find these ayaat.

 

“And when My servants ask you concerning Me, then, I am indeed near. I answer the prayer of the supplicant when he calls on Me. So let them obey Me and believe in Me, so that they may be led aright” {2:186}

 

“And indeed We have created man and We know what his own-self whispers to him. And We are nearer to him then his jugular vein.” {50:16}

“Should not He Who has created know? And he is the Most Kind and courteous (to His slaves), All-Aware (of everything). {67:14}

[2:115] And Allah's is the East and the West, therefore, whither you turn, thither is Allah's purpose; surely Allah is Amplegiving, Knowing.

 

[57:4] He it is who created the heavens and the earth in six periods, and He is firm in power; He knows that which goes deep down into the earth and that which comes forth out of it, and that which comes down from the heaven and that which goes up into it, and He is with you wherever you are; and Allah sees what you do.

 

Obviously one can easily understand these verses to mean, that Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala is near to you and to everyone equally since he is not in any location in particular. Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala is "everywhere" in the sense that there is no place that is without his presence. Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala is close to us through His complete knowledge. What about the throne?

 

[32:5] He regulates the affair from the heaven to the earth; then shall it ascend to Him in a day the measure of which is a thousand years of what you count.

 

[70:4] To Him ascend the angels and the Spirit in a day the measure of which is fifty thousand years.

 

[67:16] Do ye feel secure that He Who is Fi-sama (above the heaven) will not cause you to be swallowed up by the earth when it shakes (as in an earthquake)?

 

Muawiyah bin Al-Hakam As-Salmi said:

"I had a slave-girl who used to herd sheep for me. One day I discovered that a wolf had killed one of her sheep, and I'm a man from the children of Adam, I get upset like they get upset, and I slapped her in the face. Then I went to the Prophet who impressed upon me the seriousness of my act. I said, 'O Messenger of Allah, should I not set her free?' He said, 'Bring her to me.' He asked her, 'Where is Allah', She said, 'He is above the heavens.' He said, 'Who am I?' She said, 'You are the Messenger of Allah.' He said, 'Free her, for she is a believer.' (Muslim and Abu Dawud)

Now I am sure you are aware that our creator can not be bound in time and space so His presence is above every thing and We can not give a physical decription of His throne. As you said earlier that creation is been given a limited mind so all I know is through Holy Quran that Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala is above His throne which is above heavens.

 

Wassalam
