He holds the sky so as it cannot fall on the earth

(page 182) Question 111: What is the meaning of the Al-mighty’s saying: {.. And He holds the sky so as it cannot fall on the earth except with His permission. ..}[1] ?

Answer: Meaning that He withholds the sky from falling on the earth by a pillar that He has raised the sky with, {Allah it is who hath raised the heavens/skies with pillars other (than the ones) that ye can see, ..}[2].

So the pillar that holds the sky and raises it, it is the pillar of light that descends from the sky to the Earth, and it is Allah within the creation and it is the Face of Allah, and he is Muhammad (pbuhap). And likewise, in every era, it is the Hujja (proof) of Allah upon the people of the Earth, and if it were not (this way) then the Earth would be corrupted by its people and return to not-existing, thus it is the pillar of light descending from the sky to the Earth, and it holds the Earth (from corruption) and holds the sky by His permission the Glorified the Al-mighty (who is far above) what they associate (with Him).
