    No Allah is undefinable. He does not have a conceivable form, nor do our perceptions like gender, shape, etc., apply to Him.

      No, the Divine is not a male figure
      Neither is our creator female.
      Allah does resemble any of the creation in the world(s)/universe.

      Which brings up an interesting question to mind:

      Is STN a male figure or female?

          Gender is only in species that have to procreate. It is absent in malaika and jinnat.

            This is the way He has been addressed in all scriptures.

            It is only now that the confused west is coming up with a 'politically correct' Bible.

              and as per my knowledge, satan (iblees) was one of the angles too...rather a very reputable one and of high cadre....so did he/she loose this characteristic of gendre with is "malookiyat"???

                  The Angels do not have a gender.

                  On the other hand according to the Quran, Satan is not an Angel. He is a Jinn.

                  Jinn are a species and to my knowledge have genders. Male and female. Which enables them to procreate.

                  Now I'd respect that FactFinder please provide some backup to your statement that Jinns do not have genders because I am pretty sure that they do.

                    Oh and Angels, Humans, Jinns, Animals are under the species list.
                    The word species simply means genus or kind.

                      The reason we say Him go Allah is purely due to grammatical reasons. In french for instance, every thing is either of male or female gender, il or elle. Therefore the Him attribution.

                      Allah has no gender. He doesnt resemble his creations in any way. In urdu we would attribute him as WOH, a genderless attribution.

                        but we would always say "Woh karta hai...etc.."" why dont we ever say "woh karti hai.."....
                        the reasons lie somewhere deeper than grammer..!!!!!

                            Really?

                            Did'nt Allah create Adam in His own Image?

                            Allah created Adam in His Image;

                            therefore Alah is MALE,
                            therefore Allah has a FACE,
                            and a form.

                            Allah can be whatever He wants. But these followers of Mulla-ism put limits on Allah and tell Him(Allah)what He can be or not be.(naujabillah)

                            Just like they tell a woman what she can be or not be!
