Trinity or Tawhid? (Part One)

The Quran commands Muslims to say to Christians: “Our God and your God is One, and unto Him we surrender” (29:46). But this is an odd statement, because the God of Christianity is a Trinity. Islam denies the Trinity and proclaims a doctrine called “tawhid.” In this video, Dr. Tony Costa introduces some of the issues in Christian-Muslim dialogue concerning the Trinity and tawhid.

Check out my recording where I unpack the notion of the Trinity and explain why we as Muslims hold Tawhid to rank superior. /watch?v=ZS7BuyAT7wI

This is a really helpful video :slight_smile:

Does Quranic Arabic use more than one expression for “have a son” ? I read this somewhere, but have no Arabic.

The answer is neither is true. “thy will be done” implies two separate beings, NOT one. So both Islam and trinity Christianity is wrong.

God is “One” is both in the Bible and in the Quran.
God is “Three or Trinity” is not in any. Tawheed is an arabic word that means complete monotheism.
Just like most Christian apologies Tony should stop playing with words.

Jesus taught blasphemy against the Holy Spirit is the unforgivable sin, not shirk.

Mark 3:28-29 “Most certainly I tell you, all sins of the descendants of man will be forgiven, including their blasphemies with which they may blaspheme; 29 but whoever may blaspheme against the Holy Spirit never has forgiveness, but is subject to eternal condemnation.”

Muhammad is a false prophet. He taught something entirely different from what Jesus taught. Muslims may claim they honor Jesus all they want, yet they reject his teachings.

The title makes me laugh

There is no such thing as a trinity in the Bible. God is One, His name is Jesus. Jesus is not in the Godhead - the Godhead is in Him according to Colossians 2:9. God is One and indivisibly One. Trinitarianism is polytheism and paganism. Islam is not from God at all.

the word Mecca does not appear in the Quran also. Baqa is not Mecca.

Islam is false because Jews don’t worship Ezra as the son of God.

It is NOT TRUE that Muhammad did not understand the doctrine of the Trinity. Muhammad consciously and deliberately inverted every Christian doctrine and practice (e.g. iconography, keeping dogs etc.) in order to create enmity and excuses to rob Christian caravans and to make Muslims as different as possible in every detail that spies could not hide among them.

Thank you Dr Tony Costa.

TRINITY IS NOT CORRECT because God is a Spirit not a Person, the Holy Spirit is a Spirit not a person so how is God three persons in one The TRINITY is not Accurate at all.
PERSON is defined as CREATED BEING / Human Being
God is neither…

Jesus is ward of GOD, He sent His Holy spirit to say the ward at Marry to became the ward as person live with us, God sent part of Him to us to save and to teach us, GOD The mercy, Amen

What are you guilty of if you feel God can throw Allah into a shark aquarium built by Caucasians? You are guilty of committing great white shirk.

Nolan, what is blasphemy against the Holy Spirit in practice? It is not clear to me.

@Marco Arecibo when muslims say that their false profit is the HOLY SPIRIT, that’s blasphemy against the HOLY SPIRIT

You’re wrong. Read the Bible and you will find the Father, the Son (Jesus Christ) and the Holy Spirit.

Yes, but it’s not three persons. It’s one God.

Hypostates does not mean persons.
