Report Essence Of Allah in Christianity/Judaism Dialogue Posted June 20, 2007 [Day] Hello Yonus. Yes, the purpose of my question should be clear. I cannot understand why Allah is deemed unknowable and can't be explained on some material, physical, soulish or spiritual level. Doesn't the Quran say anything about it? PeaceWell the answer is simple,Every physical thing is limited and dependent by definition since evrything we know is like that. If literally say god has a body it is like putting limit on God, which Muslims believe to be unlimited (Some sunnis and their hadith point out that god has a body though, but the large majority of ulema refuse this). So Muslims relate to God through his attributes. These attributes include his 99 name which you can find online.
