Im a Christian, but I gain interest in the Quran thanks to God, for me it's the Last Testament and Most Holy Book that I have the opportunity to read.

God does not dialogue with humans. (You answer, He replies) Is this assumption correct according to the Quran?

I think that I've heard something about that assumption, I want to know if is correct preferably in an Arabic Quranic intrepretation.

I am not exactly sure what you are asking, God does communicate with His Messengers through various means, He spoke with some of them:

وكلم الله موسى تكليما

And Allah spoke to Moses with [direct] speech.

Quran 4:164

منهم من كلم الله

Among them were those to whom Allah spoke

Quran 2:253

Some of the means by which Allah communicates are listed in this verse:

وما كان لبشر أن يكلمه الله إلا وحيا أو من وراء حجاب أو يرسل رسولا فيوحي بإذنه ما يشاء إنه علي حكيم

And it is not for any human being that Allah should speak to him except by revelation or from behind a partition or that He sends a messenger to reveal, by His permission, what He wills. Indeed, He is Most High and Wise.

Quran 42:51


And Allah spoke even with persons, not mentioned as a prophet or a messenger:

Or like him who passed by a town collapsed on its foundations.

He said “How can God revive this after its demise?”

Thereupon God caused him to die for a hundred years, and then resurrected him.

He said “For how long have you tarried?”

He said “I have tarried for a day, or part of a day.”

He said “No. You have tarried for a hundred years. Now look at your food and your drink—it has not spoiled—and look at your donkey. We will make you a wonder for mankind. And look at the bones, how We arrange them, and then clothe them with flesh.”

So when it became clear to him, he said “I know that God has power over all things.”

Chapter 2, ayah 259
