Is God He or She or It?
Do you have a problem if I say God is neither He nor She nor It?
Remember only created things have to fit into these scales not its CREATOR.
My God created the masculinity and femininity. My God created the man and the woman and He is not a man or a woman.
Both man and woman have their own disadvantages..and my God has no such minus points. HE IS PERFECT!
You may ask now, then why do you call Allah as ‘He’?
This is an excellent question actually 🙂
You may think, “Aaah! This is very familier to me, Muslims quote it everywhere”
It may be familier, but most mankind dont practice it, THAT’S THE PROBLEM.
Ok let’s get back to our topic,
The word ‘He’ in arabic is ‘huwa’, as you can see in the box ‘هو’
You should know, every word in arabic is either masculine or faminine!
Everything including this laptop, which is masculine in arabic.
There is no ‘it’ in arabic.
‘هو رجل’ ‘huwa rajul’ means ‘He is a man’.
‘هو قلم’ ‘huwa qalam’ means ‘It is a pen’.
God chose Arabic and He uses the words which we have in Arabic. He chose ‘هو’ for Himself. So we say ‘هو’.
God didnt say He is a man or with some actual gender. So we refrain from imagining Him as a ‘MAN’ or ‘WOMAN’, got it?
And it is very logical if you sit back and think!
I just dont want a Man God or a Woman God. I just want a God who created the man and woman.
And the reality is I have Him.
And at last, we write ‘He’ while using God but we dont make Him a man in His physic.
So is God He or She or It? No GOD IS GOD. *smile* *stop* *think*

Wowww.. I am sooooooooo happy.
Lately, I was so much impressed about Umar bin AlKhattaab (radhi allaahu anhu) after reading just one or two hadith about his rulership and his death.
To my great surprise I got a mail in my inbox saying ‘Course about Umar bin AlKhattaab”!!!!
Hey is this why they say, “You take one step to learn Islam, Allaah opens many doors for you?!”
Will I miss it? NEVER
Will YOU miss it? I don’t think so! 😀

Is Ka’ba an idol?
When I say Idol worshipping is wrong, people tend to defend themselves saying, “Oh yeah! Even you people worship an idol?”
“Whaat? What are you talking about? We are the ones who say NO IDOL WORSHIPPING!”
“Hmm..then what’s that black big idol you prostate to?”
“Why do you want to pray in a fixed direction?”
“Wow! what a legitimate question :)”
“You have the right to ask such questions and I appreciate them too!”
“Ask more questions so that you get more clarifications!”
This is the most common, popular, famous, blah blah blah whatever u say, question they ask.
Yusha Evens (ex-Christian) once said that when he realized the faults in Christianity, he started reading about other religions. He went to a library, and got a book named ‘All about Islaam’ (Pretty much attractive isn’t it?). He started reading n reading. You know what he read there? “Muslims are one who worship a black cubid in the middle of a desert!! (loooooooool :D:D:D:D). They kill the non-muslims wherever they find (erm..handsup i’m gonna shoot you hehe :D)”
He got scared and said “O my God! Thanks I didn’t see a Muslim yet” (Oh! poor boy :D)
This went along few days. And one fine day, he started chatting with his friend (I don’t know whether he was a close friend or a newbee). While chatting, that ‘friend’ asked him, “Do you know anything about Islaam?”.
He said, “Oh Yeah! I KNOW EVERYTHING!!”. (??!!)
“Okey! What do you think about it?”
“They worship a black cube. They kill whomever they see.”
I guess that friend should have laughed till his heart because I did it when I heard this.
He asked, “What do you think about me?”
“Well, you are a nice person”.
“I am a Muslim.”
“I am a Muslim!”
He should have immediately realized that what he read in the book must be a manifest error, because he see his friend would never kill him. He started learning about Islam, from a ‘practicing’ Muslim and guess what HE IS A MUSLIM NOW! WORKING SERIOUSLY TO SPREAD THE MESSAGE TO OTHERS!
I know this is a bit off topic, but for those who wish to see his conversion story listen to this ‘How Bible brought me to Islam’:
I said all these things because, don’t judge Islam through some idiotic ill mannered books which try to cover the burning sun. Ask a Muslim directly or go to a masjid near your place to learn about it!
Okey lets get back to the actual question.
a) Is Ka’ba an idol??
Lemme give you the difference between the ka’ba and an idol.
Ka’ba is a building. It stands upon a 25 cm (10 in) base, which projects outwards about 35 cm (14 in). It is approximately 13.1 m (43 ft) high, with sides measuring 11.03 m (36.2 ft) by 12.86 m (42.2 ft).
Ka’ba is the first masjid build on the face of earth, to worship God.
“Indeed, the first House [of worship] established for mankind was that at (Becca) Makkah – blessed and a guidance for the worlds.” [AlQur’aan Chapter ‘The family of Imran’ 3:96]
People prayed inside the ka’ba. Are you ready to pray inside your idol? That’s impossible isn’t it?
Bilal (radhi allahu anhu) the mu’adhin (caller for prayer) of the Prophet’s time used to STAND ON THE TOP OF THE KA’BA, to call people for prayer.
I BET ANYONE CAN DO THE SAME TO YOUR IDOL???
YOU STAND ON IT’S TOP? YOU DARE PUT YOUR LEG ON IT?
We did, BECAUSE IT’S NOT OUR GOD!!!
b) What about the black stone, you kiss it?
Okey, you say it’s an idol, just because we kiss it? Then I will quote the statement of Caliph Umar bin AlKhattaab (radhi allahu anhu), the one to whom Shaitaan feared.
Sahih Bukhari Volume 2, Book 26, Number 675:
Narrated Zaid bin Aslam from his father who said:
“Umar bin Al-Khattab addressed the Corner (black stone) saying, ‘By Allah! I know that you are a stone and can neither benefit nor harm. Had I not seen the Prophet touching (and kissing) you, I would never have touched (and kissed) you.’ Then he kissed it and said, ‘There is no reason for us to do Ramal (in Tawaf) except that we wanted to show off before the pagans, and now Allah has destroyed them.‘ ‘Umar added, ‘(Nevertheless), the Prophet did that and we do not want to leave it (i.e. Ramal).’
You can get 3 solutions from this narration:
1) The Black Stone in itself doesn’t possess any power. It can’t benefit it can’t harm.
(I don’t think you believe your idol does not possess any power?)
2) They did that during the pagans time, to show-off that they too are powerful now. (You should read the entire history to know the atrocities of the pagans and how much they belittled their own people just because they said MY GOD IS ONE!)
3) We would never touch the stone except that Prophet (Peace be upon him) had done it.
Personally I am saying, when I go to Makkah I don’t touch the stone. It’s so crowd there. AND IT’S NOTHING WRONG IF YOU DONT TOUCH IT AND KISS IT! YOU KISS IT, YOU DON’T KISS IT..IT’S ALL THE SAME!!
BECAUSE THE BLACK STONE IS NOT OUR GOD!!!
c) Why do you pray in a fixed direction?
Since all your claims went futile, you are picking up on directions now?!
I don’t see how praying towards ka’ba becomes an idol for you?
NOTE: We pray TOWARDS Ka’ba and not TO ka’ba.
(I guess you will not say the same to your idol, because you clearly know YOU ARE PRAYING TO THAT IDOL).
Praying towards a fixed direction, in rows and rows is an excellent way of organizing us. Lots of people converted to Islaam, just after they saw the prayer of Muslims in person. DO YOU KNOW THAT?
They wonder what an excellent system of prayer is this!!! You all are equal in front of your Lord, no matter white or black, rich or poor!
(Remember: What you see here is the top of the 3rd floor. The 1st and 2nd floors inside the masjid have been already filled!! And you will see people praying in the road if you are blessed being there. I wish you will get to go there one day, as a believer submitted to Him alone)
Actually, first God ordered us to pray towards Masjidul Aqsa in Jerusalem, and then the direction order came to Ka’ba.
If we worshiped direction as a God, we wouldn’t be changing directions here n there. But we simply do it BECAUSE IT’S THE ORDER OF GOD!
Hey, even if there is no ka’ba WE WOULD STILL BE PRAYING TO OUR LORD in an uniform way.
ARE YOU READY TO WORSHIP Y(OUR) GOD, WITHOUT AN IDOL???
Hahahahaha.. this is one of the most funniest thing I had ever came around. 😀 😀 😀 😀
Its not shiva lingam or any other idol, it’s called ‘Makaam AlIbraahim’ meaning the place of Prophet Abraham (Peace be upon him).
Look at the close picture of that.
I think I don’t need to explain anymore, this picture speaks for itself!
Just because you see something ovel shaped, THAT BECOMES YOUR GOD?
What can I say about your foolishness? Its a gold coated glass my dear.
I know you are biting your tongue!
ISLAAM IS THE RELIGION WHICH SAYS, STOP IDOLATRY AND COME TO WORSHIP OF ONE TRUE GOD!
Actually there were 360 idols inside ka’ba, BEFORE THE PRE-ISLAMIC PERIOD. Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) destroyed all the idols and said, “WORSHIP BELONGS TO THE ONLY ONE GOD!!”
Till date, there is not even a single idol inside the entire city of Makkah and Madinah. BETTER LUCK NEXT TIME!
Next thinking –> Is God He or She or It?
