by Seeker

Sayyidunā Imām ‘Abdur Razzāq [teacher of Imām Bukhârī] in his Musannaf narrates a Hadīth from Sayyidunā Jābir bin ‘Abdullah radiyAllāhu ‘anh in which Sayyidunā Rasūlullah sall Allāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam stated,

[Yā Jābir] O Jābir! Most certainly Allāh Almighty created the nūr [light] of your Nabī before anything else. Then, when He decided to create the world, He divided the nūr of your Nabī into four portions. From the first portion, He created the Qalam of destiny, from the second, the Lawh Mahfūz, from the third, the Divine portions. From the first portion, He created those Angels who are the bearers of the ‘Arsh, from the second, the Divine Chair and from the third, the rest of the Angels.
