Anthropomorphism

Anthropomorphism is the attribution of human traits, emotions, or intentions to non-human entities. It is considered to be an innate tendency of human psychology. Personification is the related attribution of human form and characteristics to abstract concepts such as nations, emotions, and natural forces, such as seasons and weather.

1. To believe in God means to believe in His reality, not in allegations fabricated by some people against God.

2. Anthropomorphic ideas are false allegations on God. Those who claim such ideas mix between God and His creatures and think wrongly that God is like His creatures.

Ameerul Mo’mineen Ali (AS) said :O Allah, Who is much higher than being like His creatures. وتنزه عن مجانسة مخلوقاته.

 He also said:  Tawheed is to avoid wrong imaginations about Him ( Allah, The Glorious). التوحيد أن لا تتوهمه.

3. It is not enough to believe in God along with false allegations against Him. Mushriks believe in God but claim that He has partners or assistants or son etc. This is not a real belief in God.

Allah The Glorious is above the limits of body and space. He says in Quran : There is Nothing like Him. (Sura 42, Verse 11), so no question of Allah (SWT) having body because body is like other bodies.

Quran is in Arabic language and Arabic language has the maximum flexibility among all languages, where one word can give many meanings depending on the sentence and situation. No one can claim that he understands Quran or any book in Arabic through literal meaning of translations. 

Quranic meanings can only be explained by the Prophet Muhammad (SAWA) and his Holy Progeny Ahlul Bayt (AS) and never by linguistics. Any meaning which was not mentioned by the Prophet (SAWA) or his Ahlul Bayt (AS) can never be accepted.

Allah says in Quran that He Has sent on the Prophet the Knowledge of Al-Thikr, so that he should explain to the people what was been revealed. 16:44.

Wassalam.
