    It is a stylistic of the language called the “royal we” in which a person uses a plural pronoun to refer to self in order to communicate his highness and majesty. It is commonly used by kings, queens, and other people with high status.

      Well in human language there is only he, she or it. Allah describes himself as none of that, but if the language has no other words, then the use of he is the most appropriate considering that many cultures and customs consider She as a lesser.

    Yes. Whatever pronoun is best suited within sentence structure and in the context is used. There’s nothing polytechnic about this. Monotheism is the core message of the Quran – it is stated and described so clearly throughout the book that there cannot be any doubt about it.
