I was just explaining aqeedah to someone about how Allah (SWT) exists without a location and how he created time and space and therefore is not bound to them, when the thought hit me.
All of the events in the so called "creation history" are tied to time. Like we say, before Allah (SWT) created time and space it was just Allah (SWT). Does that not have time in it, because there is a before?
And like the chronological argument of the guiding helper says basically that before everything there was just Allah (SWT). Allah (SWT) is the First and the Last. Well, this is also bound to time isn't it?
"Before Allah (SWT) created time" appears to be a logical contradiction.
I have no doubt that this can be explained by the beliefs of Ahlul Sunnah wa Jama'ah i'm just confused.
