Is the pure Islamic concept of Monotheism (Tawhid) really so pure? Part III

About the Qur'an and Allah having a mother

God doth blot out or confirm what He pleaseth: with Him is the Mother of the Book (ommu alkitabi)”. Q 13:39 (Y. Ali); or

“…verily, we have made it an Arabic Qur'an; haply ye will have some sense. And it is in the Mother of the Book (ommi alkitabi) with Us,- high and wise”. Q 43:3-4 (Palmer).

Now, if the Qur’an is eternal, its mother must be eternal as well. But how can a child be just as old as his/her parent?

In the Qur’an we find that God has no consorts (Q 6:100-101). But here it seems that we have a contradiction: the Qur’an actually has a mother. Muslims want to believe that “mother of” is not to be intended physically but metaphorically. And that there is no need to have sexual intercourse to have a "child". You note the irony behind? It’s the same opposition they have against Jesus being the Son of God! If it is to be meant spiritually…well.. this is the same way, Christians mean it. If Allah is the source of the Qur’an, he is as well husband of the Mother of the Qur’an. But if the Qur’an is uncreated, and the Mother of the Qur’an as well, Allah has always been married...
