إنّ في الجنة مائةَ درجةٍ أعدّها الله للمجاهدين في سبيله كلَّ درجتَين ما بين السماء والأرض فإنْ سألتُمُ الله فسئلوْه الفردوسَ فإنه أوسطُ الجنةِ وأعلى الجنّةِ وفوقه عرشُ الرحمن ومنه تفجّر أنهار الجنّة"In heaven there is actually 100 degrees (levels) prepared by Allah for the mujahideen fi sabilillah. The distance between the two degrees is like (distance) between the heavens and the earth. So if you ask Allah, ask His to firdaus heaven because heaven that most middle and high, whereas above it Throne rahman (seat of the Allah), and from it flowing the rivers of Paradise. "(Narrated by Bukhari)
Ibn Khuzaymah said in his commentary on this hadeeth: "This news explain that 'His Arsy our Lord is above His heaven and He has tell us that He is seated on his Arsy . So, our creator is above 'His Arsy is upon His heaven. "enough a lot of hadith that has this sense. (see the book at-tawhid Ibn khuzaimahv (I / 231-289), al-Islamiyya Ijma'ul Juyusy (48-61), and Mukhtasharul 'adh-Dhahabi Uluw work (81), and others.) manhaj Aqeedah imam ash-Syafii

referral imams, namely Ibn Khuzaymah rahimahullah, explain: "We believe in Allah news jalla wa 'ala that our creator seated on His Arsy. We do not change the kalam Allah and do not say other than what is said to us, unlike the Mu'athtilah Jahmiyyah which said: 'verily He has power over' His Arsy, not be on the Arsy. '
So, they replace other words beyond what is said to them like what was done by the Jews when they were commanded to say hiththa, but they say hinthah so violated the command of Allah Ta'ala, so it is with a group Jahmiyyah. "(At- monotheism of Ibn Khuzaimah [I / 231]) manhaj aqeedah imam ash-Syafii about the attribute of al-istiwa (reside) above the arsy
Among the Salaf have agreed that Allah ta'ala seated on His Arsy and nothing whatever of His hiding among their deeds. While atsar which contains information about it, either from among the Sahaba, Tabi'in, or imams forerunner, a lot of amount.
Among them is what is narrated from Ibn Mas'ud radhiallah anhu, he said: "Arsy upon the water, whereas Allah above the Arsy , for his there is no hidden on all deeds." (Adh-Dhahabi said in al-'uluw : "narrated by Abdullah ibn imam Ahmad in al-sunnah and Abu Bakr ibn al-Mundhir, Abu Ahmad al-'asal and al-Lalika-i, al-Bayhaqi and Ibn Abd al-Barr in their books with sanad authentic )
Also narrated by al-Bayhaqi with isnaad from al-Auza'i he said, "is us, a lot of the tabi'een, saying that Allah is above His Arsy and our faith in the information submitted by the Sunnah which contains about His attributes. "(Al-Asma 'wash shifaat . classed as saheeh by Shaykh al-Islam in al-Fataawa (V / 39) manhaj Aqeedah imam ash-Syafii about the attribute of al-istiwa (reside) above the arsy
Among the most popular stories about this problem is what is narrated from the imam malik. One time he asked about the word of Allah: "the merciful Lord seated on Arsy." How does he sit? Imam Malik said: "His dwelling can be understood, but it is unknown how he reside. As for your question about this question is bid'ah, and I seem to see you as someone who is not good. "(Sharh usul Ahlus Sunnah I'tiqad [III / 398], 'Aqidatu as-Salaf al-Shabuni work , Ibn servant al-Barr in Tamhid [VII / 138], Ibn Abi Zayd al-qirwani in his treatise adh-dzhahabi in al-Uluw , and Ijma'ul Juyusy al-Islamiyya . narrations have been collected by Dr. Abdu Ar-Razzaq bin Abd al-Muhsin al-Badr.)
Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyyah rahimahullah said: "The idea that Allah is above the Arsy is the opinion agreed upon by the Prophet entirely, and it is mentioned in every book that was sent to every prophet who was sent as an apostle. Problem was also agreed by the predecessor generation of this community as well as by the imam among them of all classes. "(Naqhdu at-Ta'sis [II / 9)
In interpreting the word istiwa, the Salaf has 4 expression:1. Al-'Uluw (height)2. Al-Irtifa (rising)3. As-Su'ud (ascending)4. Al-Istiqrar (settled)

They have four expressions of it has been owned by horsemen that many stab.that, istiqra, 'style and likewise her irtifa'a that no rejection/ abasement.such also sha'ida into the fourth. While Abu Ubaidah friends ash-Syaibani, choose this opinion in his commentary that is more aware than al-Jahmi about quran. (An-Nuniyyah with Sharh al-Harras [I / 215]) manhaj Aqeedah imam ash-Syafii about the attribute of al-istiwa (reside) above the arsy

It's all explained the position of the Salaf about faith schools attributes of Allah Ta'ala. They believe that these properties have a decent sense of Allah Ta'ala, not just words dry, stiff, and there is no knowledge on him about school Salaf, while they suspect that that school of the Salaf.
The conclusion that the nature of the Salaf believed in Allah altitude above His creatures and His funeral above 'His Arsy as worthy of His majesty.
Among the information that is transmitted from the imam ash-Syafii about this is what is mentioned by adh-Dzhahabi in the book of al-'Uluw, he said: "narrated by Shaykh al-Islam Abu al-Hasan al-Hakari and al-Hafidzh Abu Muhammad al-Maqdisi through their sanad up to Thawr and Abu Shoaib, both of Muhammad ibn Idris ash-Syafii, a defender of the hadith, he said: I think about the Sunnah is I hold him, hold him, and also the -people who I see, for example Sufyan, Malik etc.
Namely the recognition of the testimony that there is no god who has the right prayer except Allah and that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah, and Allah is above 'His Arsy in this heavens. proposition shows that manhaj Aqeedah imam ash-Syafii about the attribute of al-istiwa (reside) above the arsy of Allah

Mentioned by Ibn Qoyyim of Abdurrahman ibn Abi Hatim history of Thawr and Abu Shoaib in Ijma'ul Juyusy al-Islamiyya . See also: Majmu Fataawa [IV / 181] and' aunul Ma'bud [XIII / 41 and 47])
