Allah the Exalted is Free of needing the creation, meaning Eternally and Everlastingly He does not need anything other than Him. He does not need a place in which He would be contained, or something in which He would dwell, or a direction, because He is not like any of the different types of things. He is not a tangible body or an intangible body. The tangible body and intangible body are contained in direction and place.
Allah the Exalted Said:
﴿وَهُوَ الَّذِي خَلَقَ اللَّيْلَ وَالنَّهَارَ وَالشَّمْسَ وَالْقَمَرَ
كُلٌّ فِي فَلَكٍ يَسْبَحُونَ﴾
[which means] “He is the One who created the night, the day, the sun, and the moon; and each of them is in an orbit, moving.” Allah has Confirmed for each one of those four containment in its space, which is its pathway.
The Saying of Allah,
﴿لَيسَ كَمِثلِهِ شَىءٌ﴾
[which means] “Nothing is like Him in any way,” is enough to clear Allah from place, containment, and direction, because had He had a place then He would have similarities and dimensions; length, width, and depth, and whoever is like that is an event in need of the one who specified Him with this length, width, and depth. This is the evidence from the Qur’an.
