Hadith: Someone asked the Prophet where God was before He created the heavens and the earth, and he said: “He was wrapped in a cloud and above and below was air.”
Hadith: God is time.
Why are such absurd descriptions not contained in the Quran, but in hadiths solely? One of the founders of the four sects of Islam is Hanbal and the said hadith, the first one above, is quoted from his book. The author of the second hadith is Malik and he is the author of Muvatta and he is one of the founders of the four sects. The level of knowledge of those who says that God is time and that He was wrapped in clouds is an indication of the fact that they have not understood the Quran and they are unaware of the nature of air and time and God.
