Why Does Allah (SWT) Refer To Himself As 'He'?
Ammar Alshukry

Allah SWT as we know is neither male or female. However, why does Allah SWT refer to himself in the Qur’an as ‘He’. What is the reason behind this?

Every language has its own logic. In Arabic, we don't have anything that denotes 'it.' Every object that is beyond biological female or male will still be defined as 'masculine' or 'feminine.' The default is that anything is 'masculine' unless it is proven to be 'feminine.' Allah SWT is above all of this, and is neither male or female. But he is called the default which is 'masculine' in grammar.
