god according to most belifes wouldnt have a sex. Since it would be uniqe and alone giving it a sex would be odd. But most refers to god as he probably because a male usualt have higher authority then a female(not bashing females but a example. Who gives the mest visual and imidiet respect. A male or female cop?).

yea, god has no sex. but to refer to God as "it" seems a little impersonal to me. and also, another reason God is referred to male is because of Jesus, taking on the form of male.

That is the biggest problem with us humans, we love to give human attributes to GOD, because we cant imagine it otherwise, that is a very wrong thing to do.

And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness; and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the heavens, and over the cattle, and over the whole earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth on the earth.
And God created Man in his image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.

i think by calling God he/she/it is just a matter of referencing. and it mainly is a 'he' used because of Jesus.

For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse, because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened. Professing to be wise, they became fools, and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man--and birds and four-footed animals and creeping things. Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves, who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen. Emphasis added. I would say this pretty much says it's not a good idea

And Jacob remained alone; and a man wrestled with him until the rising of the dawn. 25 And when he saw that he did not prevail against him, he touched the joint of his thigh; and the joint of Jacob's thigh was dislocated as he wrestled with him. 26 And he said, Let me go, for the dawn ariseth. And he said, I will not let thee go except thou bless me. 27 And he said to him, What is thy name? And he said, Jacob. 28 And he said, Thy name shall not henceforth be called Jacob, but Israel; for thou hast wrestled with God, and with men, and hast prevailed. 29 And Jacob asked and said, Tell [me], I pray thee, thy name. And he said, How is it that thou askest after my name? And he blessed him there. 30 And Jacob called the name of the place Peniel -- For I have seen God face to face, and my life has been preserved.

in your original post i replied to, you were talking about his likeness..his image...being human like, at least thats how i read your post. thats what the verse is talking about that you quoted. perhaps you quoted something you didnt mean and i misunderstood what you were meaning..heh.
but you are correct. god has appeared time(s) as a man.

Islam rejects characterizing God in any human form or depicting Him as favoring certain individuals or nations on the basis of wealth, power or race. He created the human-beings as equals. They may distinguish themselves and get His favor through virtue and piety only.
The concept that God rested in the seventh day of creation, that God wrestled with one of His soldiers, that God is an envious plotter against mankind, or that God is incarnate in any human being are considered blasphemy from the Islamic point of view.

doesn't the Koran say God is the only one with sin?

Jesus is not God incarnate, he brought the message from God, so we entitled him as god because he was god's words.
Same as saying the archangels gabriel is God
