The Throne of God is the reigning centre of the chief deity of the Abrahamic faiths, Judaism, Christianity and Islam. It is believed to reside in the Seventh Heaven, named Araboth in Judaism and Firdaus in Islam.
Micah (1 Kings 22. 19), Isaiah (Isaiah 6), Ezekiel (Ezekiel 1) and Daniel (Daniel 7. 9) all speak of God's throne, although some philosophers such as Saʿadiah Gaon and Maimonides, interpreted such mention of a "throne" as allegory.
The book of Revelation describes the Seven Spirits of God which surround the throne, and John wishes his readers in the seven Asian churches to be blessed with grace from God, from the seven who are before God's throne, and from Jesus Christ in Heaven.
John states that in front of the throne there appears to be "a sea of glass, clear as crystal", and that the throne is surrounded by a lion, an ox, a man, and a flying eagle; each with six wings and covered with eyes, who constantly repeat "Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty, who was, and is, and is to come". It is also said that "out of the throne proceeded lightnings and thunderings and voices".
The Quran refers to the throne 22 times, almost entirely in the Surahs written in the late Meccan and Medinian periods, when the book began to make increased reference to traditional Jewish sources.
The Quran states that the throne "doth extend over the heavens and the earth" The throne-verse is considered one of the portions of the Quran, and is frequently engraved on signet rings in the Eastern world.
