Islamic View Of The Trinity
Within Christianity, the doctrine of the Trinity states that God is a single being who exists, simultaneously and eternally, as a communion of three distinct persons, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Within Islam however, such a concept of plurality within God is a denial of monotheism, and foreign to the revelation found in Muslim scripture. The act of ascribing partners to God, whether they be sons, daughters, or other partners, is considered to be blasphemous in Islam. The Qur'an repeatedly and firmly asserts God's absolute oneness, thus ruling out the possibility of another being sharing his sovereignty or nature. However, this has not prevented later Christian scholars from questioning whether the Qur'an does reject the concept of the Trinity. Yet, there has been very little doubt of this rejection by Muslims from a very early date.
Three Qur'anic verses may directly refer to this doctrine.
