The Plurality of Allah as We, Our and Us
The Qur’an reveals why Allah is referred to in plural terms in several suras (chapters). In Sura 3:105, the Qur’an explicitly identifies a party of men sanctioned to invite goodness, enjoin equity, and forbid evil. This party of men surfaces throughout the Qur’an not as Allah, the all forgiving and merciful God, but as militant aggressors who are responsible for the destruction of many towns and killing of innocent people in the name of Allah. One such sura below demonstrates the planned strategy of militants killing people while they are asleep at night or in the afternoon while at play.
….Qur’an Sura 7:97-100. We afflicted them suddenly with chastisement, while they perceived not the cause thereof. If the people of those towns had believed and been righteous, We would surely have bestowed blessings upon them from heaven and earth, but they rejected the Prophets, so We seized them because of that which they did. Do the people of these towns now feel secure against the coming of Our punishment upon them by night while they are asleep? Or, do they feel secure against the coming of Our punishment upon them in the forenoon while they are at play? Do they feel secure against the design of Allah? None feels secure against the design of Allah, except those that are losers….
The above sura violates God’s commandment, “Thou shalt not kill (Exodus 20:13).” This sura indicates that it is the design of Allah to kill people and children for not being righteous and rejecting the prophets. It is one of many suras provided in The Qur’an that identifies a party of men as We, Our and Us. Allah cannot be represented by such plural terms because it is a party of men sanctioned in Sura 3:105 that kill people while they are asleep or in the forenoon while they are at play. This sura cannot be Allah because it is inconsistent with God’s command. If God is inconsistent He cannot be a God of truth that guides the morality of mankind.
Allah is Not We, Our and Us
Allah is referred to throughout the Qur’an as We, Our and Us. The enigma of why Allah is referred to in plural terms has been debated, misconstrued, and obfuscated by Islamic scholars, imams, caliphs, and mullahs. Actual suras in the Qur’an provides conclusive evidence that Allah is represented by a party of men identified as We, Our and Us.
To answer why Allah cannot possibly be We, Our and Us, it was prudent to obtain a translation that has not been altered due to political correctness. The source therefore used is one of the earliest translations titled, The Qur’an, written in 1893 by Muhammad Zafrulla Khan.
- We, Our and Us Identifies a Party of Men.
Not obvious to the average reader or devout follower of Islam is that it was about two decades after Muhammad’s death that a religious party assembled and added to his revelations many suras to form the Qur’an. More importantly, they also incorporated into the Qur’an the authority to invite goodness, enjoin equity, and forbid evil. This party is uniquely sanctioned in the Qur’an by the sura verse below.
Sura 3:105. Let there be from among you a party whose business it should be to invite goodness, to enjoin equity and to forbid evil. It is they who shall prosper.
This sura provides a clear statement that a party of religious leaders is authorized to enforce their judgment and any necessary actions to act in the name of Allah.
Many suras reveal that a party of organized religious leaders implements the many admonitions, warnings, and punishments in the Qur’an. We, Our and Us surfaces throughout the Qur’an not as Allah, the all forgiving and merciful God, but as fanatical aggressors who are responsible for the destruction of many towns and killing of innocent people using the authority of Allah. For brevity, they will be referred to as the “We Party.”
- The We Party Abrogates God’s Commands.
The following sura goes as far as to abrogate or cause to be forgotten the previous commandments of God by the We Party.
Sura 2:106-108. Whatever previous commandment We abrogate or cause to be forgotten, We reveal in this Qur’an one better or the like thereof: Knowest thou not that Allah has full power to do all that He wills?
The sura belittles God’s all-knowing capability by challenging His previous commandments as being candidates to be abrogated, forgotten, or substituted for something better. Only the We Party arrogantly believes that they have the authority to alter the commandments of Allah.
Further analysis of the suras below may surface an underlying and insidious reason for the use of We, Our and Us. By using these plural pronouns, initiates of Islam can easily associate themselves with Allah and carry out the warnings, punishments, chastisements, and the killing of nonbelieving infidels. Just a few of many suras are provided below to verify the underlying reason and ultimate objective of the We Party.
The following sura reveals the We Party is responsible for the destruction of many towns in the name of Allah. Such action contradicts Allah as being Most Gracious and Ever Merciful.
Sura 7:5-7. Little is it that you heed. How many a town have We destroyed! Our punishment came upon their dwellers by night or while they slept at noon. When Our punishment came upon them all they could utter was: We are indeed wrongdoers.
The above sura emphasizes the killing of innocent people while they are asleep at night or in the forenoon while at play. The next sura attributes this atrocity to the “design of Allah.”
Sura 7:97-100. We afflicted them suddenly with chastisement, while they perceived not the cause thereof. If the people of those towns had believed and been righteous, We would surely have bestowed blessings upon them from heaven and earth, but they rejected the Prophets, so We seized them because of that which they did. Do the people of these towns now feel secure against the coming of Our punishment upon them by night while they are asleep? Or, do they feel secure against the coming of Our punishment upon them in the forenoon while they are at play? Do they feel secure against the design of Allah? None feels secure against the design of Allah, except those that are losers.
The above suras violate the commandment, “Thou shalt not kill.” The excuses given in the above sura to rationalize such killing presents a ruthlessness and disregard for God’s creations. This is an example of the We Party speaking for Allah. But this cannot be God since He would disobey His command, which means He no longer is a God of truth that guides the morality of mankind.
- The We Party is Led by a Religious Leader or Commander.
The ruthlessness of fanatical Islamic terrorists continues in many countries today. It is the Qur’an itself that is used as a medium of indoctrination to motivate Muslims to kill in the name of Allah. Below, this conclusion is clearly found to be true as the Qur’an reveals it is a religious leader of high rank that tells his army of men to draw on the wrath of Allah to kill disbelievers or hell shall be their abode.
Sura 8:16-19. O ye who believe, when you encounter an hostile force of the disbelievers, turn not your backs on them. Whoso turns his back on them on such an occasion, unless maneuvering for battle or turning to join another company, shall draw upon himself the wrath of Allah and hell shall be his abode. An evil resort it is. Thus on the day of Badr it was not you who slew them, but it was Allah who killed them; and it was not thou who didst throw gravel at their faces, but it was Allah Who threw it, that He might confer a great favour upon the believers. Surely, Allah is All-Hearing, All-Knowing. That is so; and Allah will surely undermine the design of the disbelievers.
The above sura was written by a commander as one reads of the strategy not to turn and run when encountering a hostile force unless it is necessary to maneuver for battle by turning and joining another company. But notice in the second paragraph that the commander uses his leadership to strengthen the resolve of his troops by stating “it was not you who slew them, but it was Allah who killed them.” Clearly, these are not the words of Allah but a commander or a powerful religious leader.
The commander’s technique of using Allah as sanctioning atrocities has been a successful form of brainwashing or leadership to convince his fighters that the killings were not through their own volition but by Allah who supports and directs their cause. This mind trick is another way of convincing people that they are not responsible for their misdeeds but some outside force, which they attribute to Allah. But this thinking reminds us of the infantile answer made popular by one of our greatest comedians, Flip Wilson, with, “The devil made me do that.”
To rationalize the killing of innocent people, the religious leader of the We Party tells his fighters that “it was not thou who didst throw gravel at their faces, but it was Allah Who threw it,” and, “that He might confer a great favor on the believers.” This mind trick by religious leaders allows them to make their followers obey their will by placing the act of murder on Allah. But think about it, would God kill His own creations for not worshipping Him? Is the all-forgiving and merciful God unpredictable by rescinding His command “Thou shalt not kill (Exodus 20:13)?”
Are imams, caliphs and mullahs around the world actively raising their voices to prohibit fanatic parties of men from shedding the blood of disbelievers? Or, are they mesmerized and entrenched in the dogma of the Qur’an whereby they are incapable of love, compassion, and forgiveness of those who follow another faith?
We must all pause and acknowledge that God has introduced Himself to people of many cultures and nations. His only desire is that human beings love one another—this was His last command to mankind, which in all its simplicity is the Word of God.
This answer resolves the conundrum why We, Our and Us is believed by Islamic religious leaders to represent Allah. Islamic scholars, imams, caliphs, and mullahs are welcomed to challenge the conclusion that We, Our and Us is a party of men and not Allah. It is this party of men that are resistant to all criticism against the Qur’an by shutting down debate and resort to killing their opponents because they lack the credibility and truth to defend the Qur’an. Any person with just a high school diploma can easily agree with the conclusive evidence provided above that Allah is represented by a party of fanatical men identified as We, Our and Us.
The above evidence surfaces an underlying objective why We, Our and Us, a party of men, is mentioned throughout the Qur’an. They have from the inception of Islam forced the belief in Allah for the unification of all Muslims and create a Theocratic Islamic Empire.
To obtain more evidence of the validity of this conclusion, you may place an Internet search on Nicholas Ginex to access the website titled, Future of God Amen. This website presents five novels which includes an overview and book reviews of Allah, We, Our and Us.
