Flying through the breeze, along the stretch of South California coast, with the blue crystal waves lining the road, suddenly, I arrived at Getty Villa, a 1st Century Roman villa that traveled through time and landed in 21st Century. I forgot about my modern clothes, my camera, and my phone, for I felt like an ancient Greek or Roman god, just like the numerous statues of Zeus, Venus, Muses, Dionysius, exhibited in the Villa in model temples and exhibition halls. I knew that I was not a god, nor are those sculptures. But what I saw and felt was a faulty understanding about God. In this article, I’m discussing what God is not according to the Quran.
