First Vs. Third Person Point Of View

Recommended Posts

Asaalamu alaikum -


I was reading the Quran earlier when something stuck out to me that I am now curious about -


The Quran is the direct word of Allah (swt) to Mohammad, correct? Why is it that Allah does not refer to Himself as 'I', rather He uses the third person, but frequently says 'You' when speaking specifically to Mohammad (pbuh)?


I have no idea what the Arabic actually says, or how respected the translation I use is...I'm sorry if the answer is very obvious, I was just wondering if anyone else had thought about this :sl:
