What the Quran and the Bible teach about the Unity of God

God
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9s6MumUXUc4 Muslim: May I ask you something? Christian: Yes Muslim: Do you believe that there are three gods in Christianity namely the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit? Christian: No! Christians believe that there is only one God, like the Jews and the Muslims. However, the concept of God or Allah in Judaism, Islam and also in Christianity is that of a Unity, not a Unit. Muslim: What do you mean by that? Christian: In Islam, Allah is a Tawhid [or Unity] and not a Unit [or Wahid]. Surah 112:1: Say, “He is Allah, (who is) One.”. Even though the Arabic text is “ahadun”, it is recited as “Ahad” and translated into English as “one”. This is despite the fact that the same word “ahadun” is recited as “ahadun”…

Are Allah and the God of Christianity the Same? Nabeel Qureshi Answers

God
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m0jDTFyHluw&ab_channel=zondervan Hey guys, it's Nabeel Qureshi. I get a lot of questions about Islam and Christianity and I'm hoping to answer a few of the most common ones today. One of the most common questions I get is whether Allah and the God of Christianity are the same. It's an interesting question because we believe as monotheists that there is only one God and so the one God who exists, who created all people is listening to all people when they pray. He knows who they are by name, he designed them. And so when people pray, no matter to whom they're praying, there is one God who is listening. But is that one God the Islamic conception or the Christian conception? Here's the point that I want to make.…

Is the Spirit of Allah also God?

God
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AuEKi1Z0lmw The spirit mentioned in the Quran proves to be a distinct person from  Allah himself yet has divine  prerogatives that belong to Allah alone. At the same time, we showed that the  spirit appeared as a person indeed in  the case of Mary, for instance, in chapter  19. Our  Muslim friends believe in a doctrine known  as the doctrine of tawheed. In their mind, tawheed means Allah is an absolute  one, meaning one in essence and one in  person. So far it doesn't appear so. We're going to establish that the Quran  does not teach tawheed. In fact, the Quran presents a Trinity of sorts. Let's continue discussing what the  Quran says about the spirit being  co-creator and life giver with the  Muslim deity. Because we established the  spirit…

Quran has a wrong understanding of the doctrine of trinity

Muslims reject trinity
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uu7TPxOkj3U Surah 5:72-73 Some  people may think I'm splitting hairs. However, I've actually documented this in  some of my articles and I have another  article under way,  Lord willing, where I'm going to actually  provide more quotations from Christians  before, during and after the time of  Muhammad who are going to say the  following: that it is improper to say  that God is Jesus because it's more  proper to say that Jesus is God. Someone say I just said a mouthful  and it seems like I'm splitting hairs. Actually I'm not. Because when Christians say Jesus is God,  they mean that he's fully God in essence. But he's not the only person of the  Godhead nor does he exhaust the Godhead. However, to say that God is Jesus would  imply…

Quran teaches that Allah is the best of deceivers

God
https://youtu.be/h_EMG-t-D2s According to Ibn Kaffir, a tradition that goes back to Ibn Abbas concerning the meaning of surah 4:157 is the following. On the night of the Lord Jesus’ betrayal he was with his disciples. Now the traditions vary, some say they're 13 disciples, some say 17, some say 19, they vary. Jesus on the night of his betrayal told the disciples and asked the disciples which one of them would volunteer to look like him. Which one of them would volunteer to take his appearance, Jesus' appearance on himself, die in the place of Christ. Whoever is willing to accept this proposal to die in Jesus's place, Jesus supposedly said he would be given paradise. In other words the disciples were asked to look like Jesus, die in his…

Holy Spirit is not God

God
Muslims believe that the Holy Spirit in the Bible is the angel Gabriel.  Why Muslims believe the Holy Spirit is the angel Gabriel. The Holy Spirit described in the Bible is not God but the angel Gabriel. In the Quran, the angel Gabriel is referred to as the Holy Spirit. When Allah says : O Jesus, son of Mary! Remember My favor to you and to your mother; how I strengthened you with the Holy Spirit..(Surah 5:110) Why Christians believe the Holy Spirit cannot refer to the angel Gabriel. The Bible describes the Holy Spirit and the angel Gabriel as two distinct persons (Luke 1:13-19 NIV)  But the angel said to him: “Do not be afraid, Zechariah; your prayer has been heard. Your wife Elizabeth will bear you a son,…

Muslims say the doctrine of trinity is a post-Jesus invention

Muslims reject trinity
https://youtu.be/BNt5NKSse0Y Transcript of the video The word “trinity” is not found in the Bible. 1. What Muslims say The term “trinity” was not used in the Bible even once. It was Tertullian (AD 160 – 220) who coined this term. 2. What Christians say We don’t reject a doctrine just because the modern term for that doctrine is not found in the Bible. We need to consider whether the doctrine, whatever its name is, is taught by Jesus. The word “quran” not in the quran. In Islam there is a term called “Tauhid” (or “Tawhid”) that is fundamental to their concept of God. The dictionary of Islam defines this word as “a term used to express the unity of the Godhead, which is the great fundamental basis of the religion…

Muslims say the doctrine of trinity is against logic

Muslims reject trinity
https://youtu.be/rC7UEQ1laRs A. What Muslims say Muslims say that the doctrine of trinity is against the logical laws of mathematics. There are three persons, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. How can Christians still say that there is only one God? They point out that 1 + 1 + 1 = 3 and therefore the doctrine of trinity is mathematical nonsense. B. What Christians say The mathematical equation is wrong. 1 + 1 + 1 equals 3. But it equals three persons, not three gods. Muslims often point out that 3 cannot be 1. They are right. Three gods cannot be one god. Yet we are not talking about three gods; we are talking about three persons. “3 not equal to one” logic applies only when we are referring…

Quran teaches that there is only one God

Muslims reject trinity
The Quran teaches that there is only one God. Say : He is God, the One and Only; God, the Eternal, Absolute; He beget not, nor is He begotten and there is none like unto Him. (Surah 112:1-4) The Quran warns against associating others with God But the Christian doctrine of trinity is not about associating others with God. It is about who this God is. Christians believe that God is in three Persons – Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Even the Bible teaches that there is only one God. 1. What Muslims say (Deu 6:4) Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one. Besides me there is no other God; there never was and never will be. (Isaiah 43:10) According to Muslims, how can Jesus and…
