As salamo alaikum wa rahmatullah wa barakatuh.A khateeb gave a bayan that the  the SOIL OF THE RAUZA-E-RASOOL IS MORE VALUABLE THAN ALLA'S ARSH. A ghair muqallid asked him about dalils. He told that the most precious and valuable was the Prophet Mohammad S.A.W.S, so the soil which is in touch with the most noble Prophet is valuable too.If anyone tells that the arsh is in ALLAH's touch which means with ALLAH's body(nauzbillah), he would be a kafir. So he tells that as the soil is in Prophet's touch so its even valuable than ALLAH's Arsh. Is the Khateeb correct in this?

In the name of Allah the most Gracious the most merciful

The answer to your question is as follows:

The speaker's words are correct. It does not affect the glory of Allah at all. Allah, the Owner of the Great Throne, has Himself given this position and rank to the Prophet Mohammad (saws). We believe that the Throne is a creation and we believe in the relationship of Allah Almighty with it in the way whatsoever. Arsh and Kursi are great physical entities that are bigger than all the heavens and the earth. And the glory of Prophet Mohammad (saws) is the greatest among all creatures.

ومکة أفضل منہا علی الراجح إلا ما ضم أعضائہ علیہ الصلاة والسلام فإنہ أفضل مطلقًا حتی من الکعبة والعرش والکرسي، وفي الشامي: وقد نقل القاضي عیاض وغیرہ الإجماع علی تفضیلہ حتی علی الکعبة وأن الخلاف فیما عداہ، ونقل عن ابن عقیل الحنبلي أن تلک البقعة أفضل من العرش (شامي زکریا: ۴/۵۳(
