God is Not Immanent

God is not immanent in the material universe.

For example,

Surah Az-Zumar Chapter 39 Verse 67

They made not a just estimate of Allah such as is due to Him. And on the Day of Resurrection the whole of the earth will be grasped by His Hand and the heavens will be rolled up in His Right Hand. Glorified is He and High is He above all that they associate as partners with Him![1]

Surah Al-Anbiya Chapter 21 Verse 104

And [remember] the Day when We shall roll up the heaven like a scroll rolled up for books. As We began the first creation, We shall repeat it. [It is] a promise binding upon Us. Truly We shall do it.[2]

On the Day of Resurrection, God will grasp the earth and roll up the heavens. Therefore, the universe cannot contain God Who must transcend the universe.

Therefore, God is not immanent.

God cannot be Immanent

God cannot be immanent, because He is screened from the material universe by a veil.

Surah Ash-Shura Chapter 42 Verse 51

It is not given to any human being that Allah should speak to him unless by Revelation or from behind a veil or He sends a Messenger to reveal what He wills by His Leave. Verily He is Most High, Most Wise.[3]
