Where Does Supreme God Live in Hinduism?
Holy Atharvaveda Kand 4 Anuvaak 1.1 – says that the Supreme God created three eternal/divine realms – like Satlok(Satyaloka) in the topmost part of His creation. Then in the lower parts, the Almighty established 21 universes of Brahm(Brahmaloka) and 700 quadrillion universes of Parbrahm which are destructible. Read the complete story of the creation of nature.
Among all these universes, Satlok(Satyaloka) is the topmost divine place where God lives. It is self-illuminated, boundless, and indestructible. There is no death, no old age, or sorrow in Satlok. This is the supreme peaceful place where Supreme God and all the immortal souls live since eternity.
Where does Supreme God live in Satlok/Satyaloka: Satlok is the kingdom of Supreme God Kabir Sahib, from which he controls all the universes. In the center of the Satlok, Supreme God Kabir Sahib is seated, in a very large dome, as a king. Here the light of one hair follicle of the almighty is more than the light of crore suns and crore moons together.
Supreme God Living Place in Rigveda
Rigveda Mandal 9 Sukt 96 Mantra 18: The narrator of Vedas, Kaal Brahm / Brahman says that the Supreme God attains the form of a miraculous child and descends on earth. Attaining the title of a famous poet, He plays the role of a saint and imparts true spiritual knowledge in simple poetic verses which are the source of heavenly happiness to His devotees. That Supreme God Kavir Dev Himself created the third Mukti Dham Satyaloka/Satlok. It is the indestructible divine realm where Supreme God lives. In the center of Satlok, the Supreme God, in a very radiant human-like form, is seated on his throne in a dome.
Rigveda Mandal 9 Sukt 94 Mantra 2: Supreme God, who is the giver of all pleasures, lives both in Satlok / Satyaloka and on earth. The divine heavenly place, where Supreme God lives, is Satyaloka (Satlok) which is full of peace and Happiness, while He is present in the lower and upper regions too. He keeps appearing in the lower regions (universes) as a saint and tells the true way of worship to the world.
Rigveda Mandal 10 Sukt 90 Mantra 16: Those devotees who accept the way of worship given by Him, and leave all the evils, get liberated from the trap of Kaal/Satan and are taken back to Satlok/Satyalok, where Supreme God and other immortal souls already live. The same message is given by Bhagavad Gita:
See the Proof According to the Bhagavad Gita Ji
Bhagavad Gita Chapter 18 Verse 62: Oh Bharat! Go in the refuge of that Supreme God. By the grace of that Supreme God only, you will attain the supreme peace and the everlasting divine place (Dhaam/Lok) i.e. Satlok.

Where Does Supreme God Live in Sikhism?
It is a well-known fact that when Guru Nanak Ji disappeared in the river Bein for three days, he was taken to that divine place where God lives. After meeting the Supreme God he described the abode of Supreme God in many verses. One of them is:
See the Proof in Guru Granth Sahib
Sachkhand vase Nirankar, Kar kar vekhe nadir nihaal॥ Tithe khand mandal varbhand, Je koi kathe ta ant na ant॥ (Sri Guru Granth Sahib, Page08)
- Meaning: Sachkhand i.e Satlok/Satyalok is the eternal realm of truth where Nirankar i.e. the egoless God lives. Having created the whole nature He watches over it with benign attention. There is no end to the universes and heavenly places created by the Supreme God. They are limitless and indescribable and exist as per His command. The description of Shri Nanak Ji’s travel to the divine place where Supreme God lives is also mentioned in Bhai Bale wali Janam Sakhi:
Proof in Sakhi Sachkhand di - Bhai Bale Wali Janam Sakhi
“Sakhi Sachkhand Di” - So Guru Nanak Dev Ji reached Sachkhand/Satlok/Satyaloka which is self-illuminated and full of light. Sat Nirankar i.e. the eternal and egoless Supreme God is seated there in a very radiant form. All the devotees and deities are standing there folding their hands. Guru Nanak Ji entered that light and praised the great Supreme God in Sikhism.
Where Does Supreme God Live in Islam Religion?
In Islam religion, there is a concept of Seven Heavens and all Muslims believe that it’s the seventh heaven where Allah/God lives, although they consider Him to be formless. There is evidence in the Holy Quran Sharif that the Supreme God i.e. Allah is in form and He is sitting on His throne in Satlok/Satyalok.

Holy Quran Sharif (Surat Furqani 25, Aayat 59) - He is the same God, Allahu Akbar Kabir who created the entire nature, whatever is between the Earth and Sky in six days, and on the seventh day sat on His throne in Stalok/Satyaloka, above, where Allah/God lives. Ask about His information from a Bakhabar Saint.
That Allahu Akbar said in ‘Suksham Ved’-
“Hum Mohammad ko vahan le geyo, Icchaa Roopi Wahan Nahee raho,
Ult Mohammad mahal pathaya, Guj Biraj Ek kalma le aaya”, ||
