Arm, leg, leg, arm, head – this is God body
The first initials in “Arm Leg Leg Arm Head” spell out “Allah.” This represents the 360 degrees of man and man’s knowledge. (Full Circle) According to the belief of 5 Percenters, Allah is the proper name of God. The Qur’an declares “the reality of Allah, His inaccessible mystery, His various names, and His actions on behalf of his creatures.”

When Hov states, this is “God Body” the body of the work is of the presence of Allah and is probably even in architecture of allah— all knowing and fully encompassing (360 degrees of man- arm leg leg arm head) . The “body”, physically or metaphorically, is godly.
Jay Z may be referencing the common yogic belief that God is within all creation meaning that not only is Jay Z God, but that you and I are as well. Kanye dealt with a similar concept on “I Am A God,” where the punchline is that, yeah, so are you, according to Psalm 82:6. John 10:34 also has a reference to men being gods.
