In Quranic terminology, word ‘al-haque’ is used for Allah’s Person or Allah’s deeds; whereas, as compared to 'al-haque', word ‘haque’ is used (in addition to other connotations) with reference to human deeds . To know about ‘al-haque’/ Allah’s Person/ Allah’s deeds is called knowledge; whereas to know about ‘haque’/ creation’s/ human deeds is called information/ ‘khabr’/ ‘naba’. Word ‘naba’ is used to inform before time or inform about past news; whereas ‘khabr’ is used to inform about future news.
In Quran, word ‘al-haque’ is always used to describe Allah’s Person or Allah’s deeds.
Quran says: “ This is so, because Allah is the Reality/ ‘al-haque’: it is He Who gives life to the dead, and it is He Who has power over all things” (al-hajj-6).
In this above verse, word ‘al-haque’ has been used to describe Allah’s Person. Similarly Quran states: “
“And from whatsoever place you come forth, turn your face towards the Sacred Mosque; and surely it is the very truth/ ‘al-haque’ from your Lord, and Allah is not at all heedless of what you do” (al-baqra-149).
In the above verse, word ‘al-haque’ has been used to describe Allah’s deed. There are dozens of verses in Quran where this word ‘al-haque’ has been used to describe Allah’s deeds; for instance al-baqra-147 states: “The truth/ ‘al-haque’ is from your Lord, so never be among the doubters”.
Similarly, as compared to 'al-haque' , word ‘haque’ is used with reference to man’s/ creature’s deeds.
“Those who have been driven from their homes unjustly (beghair haque) only because they said:….”.(al-hajj-40).
In this verse, word ‘haque’ has been used to describe human deeds.
From the above discussion it is clear that word ‘ al-haque’ in Quran is used to describe Allah’s Person or Allah’s deeds. Mansoor Hallaj’s statement ‘ana-l-haque’ may be better appreciated keeping in mind that all creatures have been created by Allah and as such are deeds of Allah; ‘ana-l-haque’ may mean I am Allah’s creation/Allah’s deed’.
