It is strongly beliveved by Muslims that the attributes of God were always the same in all the heavenly religions but owing to the human interpolations, borrowings from other ancient pagan religions, the successive translations of the holy Books, many human attributes were giving to God in the Holy Book, this distorted the image of God and in the same time fostered the seeds of atheism.
Traces of the uniqueness of God in the Holy Book
however there are many ureasonable verses that depict God unable like humans and in some cases inferior to them. in the following lines we will shed some light on these verses and in the same time we will compare between what the Holy Quran and the Holy Book say in this regard.
In the Holy Book God forgets
Why do you forget us forever, why do you so long forsake us? [Lam. 5:20How]
The same concept is repeated here:
long O Lord ? will you forget meforever. [Psalm 13:1]
Is it any logical that God forgets?
How can he that controls the universe be forgetful?
How can that under Whose hands lie the smallest paricles to the largest galaxies be forgetful?
Islam not only corrects this interpolated concept but also stresses thae fact that God can’t be forgetfull under any conditions.
The Holy Quran says:
In Islam nothing can distract God from caring of something to caring about something else.
The Holy Book says that God sleeps.
Awake, why do you sleep, O Lord?(Psalm. 4:23)
In another place the Holy Book says:
What is that languge that the Holy Book teaches us while we address God?
How can God sleep? If He sleeps, then Who controls the universe while he is asleep , don’t tell me that the universe is controlled by laws simply the word” law” is no more than an expression to describe what is going on but it doesn’t tell us how that happens.
Sleeping is a biological process that mortals resort to refresh the exhausted organs especially the nervous system.
Please note that God is not like us, sleeping is equal to death, it is a temporary death.
In The Holy Quran God never sleeps
The Holy Quran tells us that:
The Holy Book tells us that God needs to rest
In the Holy Quran, God never needs to be refreshed.
The Holy Quran says:
In the Holy Book God can be seen face to face
In the Holy Book, God can ( Sometimes ) be seen face to face, Jacob wrestled God who said to him, "Let me go;for the day is breaking" But Jacob said, "I will notlet you go unless you bless me. And he said tohim,” What is your name? And he said "Jacob"Then the Lord said,
So the Holy Book teaches us that:
In the Holy Quran , God can’t be seen face to face
The Holy Quran says:
But those who disbelieve say, "The Hour will not come to us." Say, "Yes, by my Lord, it will surely come to you. [Allah is] the Knower of the unseen." Not absent from Him is an atom's weight within the heavens or within the earth or [what is] smaller than that or greater, except that it is in a clear register - (34:3)
In the Holy Book God is sometimes not All-Knowing
And they heard the voice of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from thepresence of the LORD God amongst the trees ofthe garden. And the LORD God called unto Adam,and said unto him, Where are thou? [Gen. 3:8,9]
So like human beings God walk, can be subdued to place, he is in one place in a certain time while absent in another place.
In the Holy Quran God is always All-Knowing
With Him are the keys of the unseen, the treasures that none knoweth but He. He knoweth whatever there is on the earth and in the sea. Not a leaf doth fall but with His knowledge: there is not a grain in the darkness (or depths) of the earth, nor anything fresh or dry (green or withered), but is (inscribed) in a record clear (to those who can read). [Al_Quraan 006:059
In the Holy Book, God (Sometimes) regrets
And the Lord was sorry that he made man onthe earth, and it grieved him to his heart. [he said]:
Whenever you regret doing something this means that:
In the Holy Book, God ( Sometimes ) orders sins tobe committed
GO TAKE TO YOURSELF A WIFE OF HARLOTRYand have children of harlotry, for the land has committed great harlotry by forsaking the.
Also see ( Exo. 3:22) Lord." [Hos.]
1:2 In The Holy Quran, God bans indecent acts Say: "Nay, Allah never commands what is indecent: Do you say of Allah what you ) know not? " [Al_Quraan 7:28]
