Allah can't be referred to as a touchable figure, neither his existence can be explained in rational terms that is simple for the human mind to realize or visualize . As for the "crescent" shape it's merely an islamic symbol refers to the month of quranic revelation (as the moon obtains the shape of a crescent at this month ) that month is "Ramadan"a holy month for muslims.I've never heard any one referring to that symbol as "God" !
