Ta’leemul Haq (Saeed international)

As secularism debates whether God is dead, the issue of anthropomorphism has become of immense importance. Shah addresses the Judeo-Christian worldview and how each has chosen to framework its encounter with God, to what extent this has been the result of actual scripture, the product of theological debate, church decrees of later centuries and absorption of Greek philosophy. He also examines tawhid and Islam’s strictly anti-anthropomorphic stance. To Shah, anthropo morphic concepts and corporeal depictions of the Divine are perhaps among the leading factors of modern atheism. As such he ultimately draws the conclusion that the postmodern longing for God will not be quenched by pre-modern anthropomorphic concepts of the Divine which have simply brought God down to this cosmos, with a precise historical function and a specified location.
