Hi

Can I use Whom in this sentence?

"Monotheist means a person who believes that there is only one God whom nothing is like him."

    No. In the relative clause, both 'whom' and 'him' would refer to the same thing. We can't do this in English (as you can in Arabic, I believe). Leave off 'him', and then you can use 'whom' or 'that'.

    So is this right:
    "Monotheist means a person who believes that there is only one God whom nothing is like."
