THE TRINITY IN ISLAM
Muhammad's followers believe:
1. in Muhammad's "Allah"
2. that Muhammad's Allah has a spirit
3. that Muhammad was "given the right of intercession on the Day of Resurrection":
Bukhari B7, #331 Narrated Jabir bin 'Abdullah: the Prophet said, "I have been given five things which were not given to any one else before me...... 4. I have been given the right of intercession (on the Day of Resurrection).
Even Muhammad's followers that vainly argue against the hadith, by claiming that rather than a "right" Muhammad is their intercessor only at "Allah's" pleasure, are still admitting to Muhammad being a "helper" for "Allah" which would constitute Islam's unforgivable sin of "shirk". Actually it is even more polytheistic than they accuse of Christians, who recognize the Father, Son and Spirit as one essence - as one being. Muhammad's follower's always burdened with squirming before the truth rather than surrendering to Jesus, in continuing efforts to reject the prophets and witnesses of the one true God of love as revealed in His 1600 year record of Scripture, to follow the opposite through Muhammad alone as revealed in his 23-year 7th-century record of imperialistic conquest, slaughter and genocide.
While the term "trinity" does not exist in the Bible - any more than the word "Bible" does - it is a convenient way to refer to the many hundreds of verses in scripture that proclaim the Father manifest as His Son and the Holy Spirit, which happen to occur together in the following verse:
Matthew 28:18 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. 19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
Thus the Father, His Son and the Holy Spirit are what are referred to as the "trinity" or "triunity". Three parts of the ONE Godhead.
Mark 12:29 ... The Lord our God is one Lord: ... 32 ... for there is one God; and there is none other but he:
Both Jews and Christians believe that God has a Spirit, and some faithful Jews still await their promised Son. Even though Muhammad and his followers vehemently reject the "trinity", Muhammad indicated that even his own "Allah" has a spirit.
"Allah's" spirit (URL)
Surah 32.9: But He fashioned him in due proportion, and breathed into him something of His spirit. And He gave you (the faculties of) hearing and sight and feeling (and understanding): little thanks do ye give!
As Muhammad pirated from: Exodus 31:3 And I have filled him with the spirit of God, in wisdom, and in understanding, and in knowledge, and in all manner of workmanship,
Surah 15.29: "When I have fashioned him (in due proportion) and breathed into him of My spirit, fall ye down in obeisance unto him."
Thus Muhammad's followers already believe in two parts of the "trinity" - God and His Spirit - which, by the same measure they apply to Christians, would make Muhammad's followers polytheistic hypocrites! Let alone that Muhammad doesn't seem to have understood what the trinity is, since he apparently thought it included "Mary" as a "god" (though it doesn't include Mary at all):
Surah 5:116 And behold! Allah will say: "O Jesus the son of mary! Didst thou say unto men, worship me and my mother as gods in derogation of Allah'?"
Muhammad claimed to be an intercessor on the day of the resurrection, as confirmed in what is considered to be Islam's most divinely inspired hadith collection, second only to the Quran itself in importance (even though it wasn't penned until over 200 years after Muhammad lived):
Bukhari B7, #331 Narrated Jabir bin 'Abdullah: the Prophet said, "I have been given five things which were not given to any one else before me. 1. Allah made me victorious by awe, (by His frightening my enemies) for a distance of one month's journey. 2. The earth has been made for me (and for my followers) a place for praying and a thing to perform Tayammum, therefore anyone of my followers can pray wherever the time of a prayer is due. 3. the booty has been made Halal (lawful) for me yet it was not lawful for anyone else before me. 4. I have been given the right of intercession (on the Day of Resurrection). 5. Every Prophet used to be sent to his nation only but I have been sent to all mankind.
Yet the Bible informs us that Jesus is the one mediator between God and men:
1Timothy 2:5 For [there is] one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;
John 5:22 For the Father judgeth no man, but hath committed all judgment unto the Son:
That Jesus is the intercessor for all mankind, just as was prophesied in the Old Testament:
Isaiah 53:12 .....because he hath poured out his soul unto death: and he was numbered with the transgressors; and he bare the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.
As confirmed in the New Testament:
Hebrews 7:24 But this [man], because he continueth ever, hath an unchangeable priesthood. 25 Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them.
Yet Muhammad claimed that he was "given the right of intercession" - right after excusing away his theft of the property of others and sexually enslaving women as "lawful" "booty", and typically, with his Muhammad-serving god giving Muhammad license to do so:
Bukhari B7, #331 ..... 3. the booty has been made Halal (lawful) for me yet it was not lawful for anyone else before me. 4. I have been given the right of intercession (on the Day of Resurrection).
Confirmed again in what is considered by Muslims to be the second most inspired hadith collection:
Sahih Muslim B30, #5655: Abu Huraira reported Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: I shall be pre-eminent amongst the descendants of Adam on the Day of Resurrection and I will be the first intercessor and the first whose intercession will be accepted (by Allah).
Thus Muhammad completing a description of his parallel but blasphemous trinity, consisting of Muhammad's "Allah", and Muhammad's "Allah's" spirit - which is the spirit of antichrist - and Muhammad's "Allah's" self-proclaimed intercessor, Muhammad.
This while Muhammad's followers must reject the blood of the sacrifice of the sinless Messiah - the one mediator, the spotless Passover Lamb of God, the intercessor for all who have faith in His shed blood - even while they are taught that the first drop of blood shed by the average-Joe sinful Muslim "martyr"/murderer, qualifies him to make intercession for seventy of his family members:
From many Islamic sites, including Islam Today: "In the hadîth, the Prophet (peace be upon him) says: “The martyr can intercede for seventy members of his family.”
So Muhammad's followers believe in the concept of intercession, and atonement for sin through shed blood, even as they are compelled to reject the shed blood of the sacrifice of the Lamb of God on the cross - the whole subject of the Gospel.
Which intercessor does your eternity depend on, the loving and sinless Messiah, the intercessor for all mankind that was prophesied in the old covenant and fulfilled in the new covenant? The intercessor of the "people of the book" who Muhammad ordered up his Allah's curse on. Or is your intercessor Muhammad alone, whose sinful nature is revealed through Islam's own books? Do you also believe an intercessor can be some maniacal suicidal murderer who blew himself up among innocent people? Or perhaps someone like those so-called "martyrs" of Muhammad's day, who were inadvertently killed, while engaged in the act of murdering peaceful innocents through imperialistic conquest?
To deny that Christians are on the right path is even to reject the Quran, that is of course until one throws out the early Mecca suras, that eventually became a testament against Muhammad like:
Sura 5:47 Let the people of the Gospel judge by what Allah hath revealed therein.
Sura 5:68 Say: "O People of the Book! ye have no ground to stand upon unless ye stand fast by the Law, the Gospel, and all the revelation that has come to you from your Lord."
Which Trinity For Eternity? (URL)
God gave us all the free will to choose between right and wrong, good and evil, and reality and fantasy, so how we spend our eternal life depends on the choices we make in this life. Those choices in turn, are arrived at through a love of truth, or the absence thereof. Which "trinity" does your eternal life depend on? That of the one true God of love of the Jews and Christians as He revealed Himself manifest in person and/or through His Spirit, to all of His prophets and witnesses of His 1600 year record of revelation to mankind, that His people have followed through two covenants for 3500 years. With our sinless Messiah as intercessor as revealed through a record that is well supported by history, archaeology and fulfilled prophecy, that is consistent with matter of fact physical geography, and can even be confirmed mathematically.
John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
Matthew 26:28 For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.
Or does your eternal life depend on an imitation trinity with Muhammad's alter-ego "Allah" as a terrorist, that inspired a cruel, violent, imperialistic, mass-murdering, child violating, counter-"messenger" of an anti-religion, in Muhammad's "Allah's" spirit of antichrist, with Muhammad as the self-proclaimed intercessor? A scripture-contrary, counter-religion with a pre-Muhammad history-devoid, archaeology-absent, reality-rejecting, geographically-impossible so-called "tradition", that masquerades as thousands of years of pre-Muhammad history, yet was all created and put to the pen in the 7th to 10th centuries AD without reference to any actual historical record that preceded the 5th century AD. A counter-YHWH anti-religion with a carnal tradition of prostrating toward the Quraish pagan's black stone idol and Kaaba in Mecca five times a day - located 1200 kilometers away from the Holy Land of the prophets and patriarchs - while praying in the "vain repetitions as the heathen do", in the names of the Arabian pagan deity "Allah" and his "messenger" Muhammad. Even compelled to perform adopted, adapted and thinly veneered pagan Arabian moon, sun, star and jinn-devil worship rituals.
More simply put, one must choose between the trinity as revealed through the scriptures of the one true God of Jews and Christians who is:
Or the counterfeit trinity of the enemy of the one true God of the scriptures, described by Muhammad alone as the:
