This thread presents me with an opportunity to put forth a question I have had for a long time, and SunnyWinters gets at the point when he clarifies that the "We" is ALLAH.
If this is the case that Allah is manifest in beings, characters in the Koran, on earth, than who are the prophits reletive to these said, "one of Our slaves, unto whom We had given mercy from Us". And why are the prophets given such importance in the Koran, when in numerous instances, such as the incedent with Lot's daughter, they are confronted with beings of a higher rank then prophethood. If the "We" is Allah, than why is he descrubed earlyer as only "one who has been given mercy" by the plurailty of persons who are imparting the naration of the chapter.
I am curious how one can explain this without defining the Slave of Allah as an Elojim. Calling him simply a wise man is to overlook the hirarchy that is established in the Koran.
And further do you think that these are the Saints/ gods (words interchanged in varous translations) talked about in the bible, also known as suns of God in the Dead Sea Scrolls? Who do these represent in today's world? Where/ who are they?
