Allah Subhan O Talah praise and His presence is beyond beyond our imagination. He is articulating his presence in 04 dimensional context just to make us comfortable to encompass his mighty glory. Allah Subhan O Talah is so meticulous in the placement of the words that He used same verses to define East and west (Verse No. 115 Surah No. 02 & Verse No. 09 Surah No. 73) and same for His glory (Verse No. 01 Surah No. 01 & Verse No. 01 Surah No. 114) so there is no god [worthy of worship] except Him.
