NPR: If Allah Has No Gender, Why Not Refer To God As ‘She?’

Is NPR trying to start a global holy war over pronouns?

The publicly-funded radio station aired a “Consider This” segment titled, “If Allah Has No Gender, Why Not Refer to God As ‘She?'”:

When people speak about God in various religions, the deity is typically referred to using the masculine pronoun “He.”

In Islam, Allah is not depicted as male or female — Allah has no gender. Yet Allah has traditionally been referred to, and imagined by many, as a man.

Some Muslim women have begun to refer to Allah with feminine or gender neutral pronouns.

NPR’s Ari Shapiro spoke to Muslim journalist Hafsa Lodi, who covered the feminist movement in “The Revealer,” a religious magazine published by NYU’s Center for Religion and Media.

Lodi told NPR she corrected her four-year-old daughter when she referred to Allah as a woman, and admitted she’s contributed to the “patriarchy.”

National radio host and “Culture Jihad: How to Stop the Left from Killing a Nation” author Todd Starnes questions who let NPR air that story.

“No doubt NPR’s allegations will be explosive,” Starnes said. “I’d be curious to know who signed off on that story. No doubt heads will roll.”

In some Islamic countries, blasphemy is punishable by fines, imprisonment, flogging, hanging, or beheading.

One user on Twitter, where NPR has not been active since April after Elon Musk labeled them government propaganda, said, “Someon’s head comes off in public in 3…2…1…CHOP!”

Would you tell a Muslim to call "Allah" a "She"?
