He says from Omar a woman came to the Prophet (PBUH) and she said: “Pray to Allah for me to enter heaven”
So then he (Prophet) began to exalt the Lord and said: “His throne is above the skies and earth and HE SITS ON IT (the chair) [the word “alayhi” is used] on the throne. And then 4 fingers away from him, then he (Allah) said while raising his four fingers altogether while his throne had a seat similar to the of a seat for a new camel to ride on.
This hadith is SAHIH, on condition of Bukhari and Muslim.

A woman came and asked the Prophet PBUH: “Pray to Allah for me to enter heaven” So then he (Prophet) began to exalt the Lord and said: “His throne is above the skies and earth and HE SITS ON IT (the chair) [the word “alayhi” is used] and only four fingers from him is seen.”
Ref: The book of “Arsh” from “al-Thahabi” studied and investigated by:
Mohammad ibn Khaleefa al-Tameemi, the teacher in association from the
Islamic University in Medina. In volume 2, under section “Athwa’ al-Salaf”, page
The Prophet (PBUH) said: “Praises to Allah, praises to Allah, praises to Allah” and so he praised Allah until it was shown about it in the faces of the companions. And then he said: “Woe unto you do you know who Allah is. He is more greater than what it is. Because I don’t intercede without Allah. He (Allah) is above the skies and on top of his kingdom and he Allah (SWT) is on it in this way (demonstrating with hands as a picture). And Wahab indicated to us with his fist like a dome and the kingdom which is like a dome is on top of the skies and Allah sitting on top of the kingdom. And Abu Azhar describes: He goes ontop of it the same way how a rider embarks on his ride.
Ref: The book “Ithbaat hadd Lillah”, ("Proving the limitation of God”), and that he sits on his kingdom, page 138, by al-Dashti.
He says: “The entire earth will be on his GRIP in the Day of Judgment FOLDED ON HIS HAND, and THROWS it like how a young MAN THROWS A BALL.”
And in another say, the Most Powerful (Allah) will take the skies, and the earth with his hand and places it on his palm, then says it in a way similar to how young men say: ”It is me I am the One Allah.” Ibn Abbas says: “He will hold it in a way that not even the sides (of the skies) will show from his hands.”
He also says: “The 7 skies and the 7 earths and what is in them and between them on the hand of the Most merciful, is like a mustard seed on one of your hands (referring to human beings).
