Is Allah everywhere or in the heaven?

No this is wrong I am afraid and now it became wajib for me to speak.

Allah is the creator of time and space therefore he does not need for him to be. Something needs time and space to somewhere; someone like myself because I am created.

So how can creator need time and space before he actually created them. Answer is he cannot because is has never been in a state of need and will never be in a state of need. To be in need is a sign of a created thing. So creator is never in need and creation is always in need. This includes any false belief that Allah is "in" something like heaven. That would mean that Allah could be encompassed by something which is again impossible. Logically a created being and encompass a created item but nothing can encompass something that is uncreated. This is the belief of the majority.

It is permissible to say Allah's knowledge is everywhere. For a person who doesn't understand this.

Allah mentions certian parts in the Quran which itself warns against likening Allah to man. Sura Ahl imran verse seven
It is He who sent down upon thee the Book, wherein are verses clear that are the Essence of the Book, and others ambiguous. As for those in whose hearts is swerving, they follow the ambiguous part, desiring dissension, and desiring its interpretation; and none knows its interpretation, save only God. And those firmly rooted in knowledge say, ’We believe in it; all is from our Lord’; yet none remembers, but men possessed of minds."

Some verses are clear and others are ambiguous, so steer clear to the ambiguous verses and you'll be safe. Many people read too much into these verses and do not truly understand them and this leads to tributlation.

If we consider that man made the television, does that mean that the television can understand man? Never, because its not got the capacity to do so. We can never understand Allah, so could we liken him to have human parts? This is misguidance and I beg brothers and sisters to stay from this because its a dangerous road.

Allah is where there is no time or space because they are his servants not the other way around.

Please email me if you do not understand because this is really important that you understand this fact.
