    Arabic word which refers to the body and parts of it of different being and organisms is indecisive, inconclusive, and incomparable.
    In Qur’an Q.35, v.1, Arabic word for angels’ wings is “Janah”, exactly the same with the birds’ wings at Q.6, v.38, but the same word refers to a child’s humility toward the parents at Q.17, v.24 and Moses’ arms at Q.20, v.22, so it’s different in reality and appearance.

    In Qur’an Q.38, v.33, Arabic word for four horse’s legs is “Suwq” (or Saq), exactly the same word for two human’s legs “Saq” at Q.27, v.44, but different in reality and appearance, whereas at Q.18, v.18 Arabic word for four dog’s legs is dhira’ay.

    A word can have many definitions. For example, the word “over” in English has multiple meanings such as beyond, upon something, finishing, above, on top of, higher (up) than, atop, covering. An author or a speaker is free to choose whatever words he uses. One may decide to use his wording with “abstraction” or “figuration” or “allegory” or “personification”.

    It is a central tenet of Islam that the descriptions about Allah (swt) in the Quran are true and that Muslims must believe them. However, we also believe that these descriptions are not anything like in humans because Allah is unlike His creation. But you won’t hear that from Christian princess, the pseudoscholar and liar!

    Madman, when will you get it through your head that you are being lied to? Repent before it is too late.

    The irony of ironies is that christian princessant doesn’t seem to realize that his god has legs and is an old man with white hair. See Exodus and Daniel.

    The description in Daniel was most probably borrowed from pagan mythology! Ouch!

    Here is the description of madman’s god in Exodus:

    “And they saw the God of Israel: and there was under his feet as it were a paved work of a sapphire stone, and as it were the body of heaven in his clearness” (Exodus 24:10).

    Here the description in Daniel:

    “I beheld till the thrones were cast down, and the Ancient of days did sit, whose garment was white as snow, and the hair of his head like the pure wool: his throne was like the fiery flame, and his wheels as burning fire” (Daniel 7:9).

    As I wrote in my article on the book of Daniel:

    “In his “vision”, Daniel saw the “Ancient of Days” and provided a vivid description of this being (who was obviously “God”), including clothing that “was white as snow”, and hair that “was white as wool”. But as historians have recognized, this description of a white-haired God seems to be influenced by pagan mythology. According to Hammer:

    “[t]he imagery probably comes from Canaanite mythology, in which El was regarded as an aged deity with grey hair.”[168]

    Moreover, the imagery of a “son of man” approaching the “Ancient of Days” shares similarities with Canaanite myth. According to Hammer:

    “[i]n Ugaritic texts Baal, the younger god, is described as the one who slew the dragon Itu and so gained victory over the sea, thus establishing his kingship. (In verses 13-14 the second figure is seen as the recipient of authority at the hand of the ‘ancient in years’ and this may reflect the ancient mythology preserved in the enthronement festival of New Year rites.”[169]”

    So we may ask to christian princess and madman: what is Yahweh?

  4. θ says:

    Now, about the semantic question where God is.
    The answer for that depends on its question.
    (i) Where’s Allah indwelling? He is in the heart, that Allah stays between a man and his heart (Q.8, v.24).
    (ii) Where’s Allah mounting? He is beyond the 7th Heaven and beyond the Throne above (Q.13, v.2).
    (iii) Where’s Allah according to the nearness? He is everywhere more nearer than one’s own jugular vein (Q.50, v.16, Q.57, v.4).

  5. θ says:

    At the absolute sense, actually we can’t use the word “Where” (as it’s the creation’s attribute) for questioning aspect of God. Allah’s nature is different from the creation’s nature (Jawhar). There will be never to happen such a unification between two different natures – Wahdat al Wujud – so in the absolutism the word “Where” is misplaced.
