The eminent Muslim scholar and renowned Da`iyah, Sheikh `Abdel Khaliq Hasan Ash-Shareef, states: It should be stressed that no man, jinn, or even prophet has witnessed the creation of the earth. Almighty Allah says, “I made them not to witness the creation of the heavens and the earth, nor their own creation; nor choose I misleaders for (My) helpers.” (Al-Kahf 18: 51)

So, thinking about what it was like before the earth was created bears no beneficial action. May Allah guide us all to the right path!”
