Philip McCormick Anonymous is arguably the most appropriate name, given that God is so anonymous that he/she/it doesn't exist at all.
Yahya Alshamy What difference does it make if someone calls the Author Anonymous or God? It really doesn't matter. We muslims are sure it's from God so it doesn't matter what others say. But to allow it to officially be written by God means the Bible, Torah, and many other books will claim the same. Then you would have to create a user for "God" and put every theistic religion in "God's" books. basically it's going to be a joke. Anonymous is way better in my opinion.
Zahra Louridi they also piut the bible written by anonymous to avoide the saying of this is from God (the bible), and no this is from God (quran).
☯ 愛 ঝামেলা جميلة 美 ☮ As a Muslim, I think anonymous is highly appropriate. What? Are we going to give Allah/ God a profile on Goodreads???! That would be highly disrespectful.
AAO It's author is stated in the book itself...Do they not consider the Qur'an (with care)? Had it been from [any] other Than Allah....

note: other book platforms have it correctly listed....جزاكم الله خيراً

also.....in truth one should at least read a book before trying to feign qualifications to answer a question related to it....the issue is of justice and decency.....it's right and fair to attribute work to its true author. Simple assertion of the author's moral authority...would it really not matter to say [enter your favorite author] didn't author their work?...the label as it currently is, suggests many things, some of which are: 1) we don't (good)read books 2) we don't care about authors, let alone books 3) we don't care about truth 4) we don't uphold moral standards as readers....it's so wrong...even for non-Muslims, on a human level, it's wrong....some may be aloof neighbors but at least some others said, No! Not in our name you don't....
Aqsa Anonymous seems fine here, although I was bothered by it.

God wouldn't have been enough and it would've been worse.

"Allah" would've been perfect but they won't do it!MAKE
