    Asalamalykum,

    I have read a few places where you have mentioned scholars shouldn't raise their finger to point towards the sky when referencing Allah Subhan Wat'ala. While I understand the reason why (Allah does not have locality), I was wondering if anyone can explain a couple of Hadith Shariffs where Rasul Sallahu Alayhe Wasalam used to point towards the sky.

    For example:
    The Prophet [​IMG] said in the farewell message:

    "And you would be asked about me (on the Day of Resurrection); (now tell me) what would you say?' They (the audience) said: 'We will bear witness that you have conveyed (the message), discharged (the ministry of Prophethood) and given wise (sincere) counsel.' He (the narrator) said: 'He (the Prophet) then raised his forefinger towards the sky and pointed it at the people (saying): 'O Allah, bear witness, o Allah, bear witness,' saying it thrice.'" [Muslim]

    There are others, too but I cannot find a reference.

    Also, I have attached something I found on Twitter, and it caused me further confusion whether can say that Allah Allah Subhan Wat'ala is above the sky.

    JazakAllah
