Where is the idea of the Trinity being God, Mary and Jesus come from. (This is in contradition to teachings on the Trinity.

25thJuly 2020

Actually, in the above video we find at least 6 different versions.   This should not be a problem for the Ulema, but they have to be honest about looking at the Koran and to stop the use of propaganda.  

The Trinity and Tawhid from the point of View of Kosmades.

Kosmades gives a Quranic verse;

Surah 5: 116

“Sahih International

And [beware the Day] when Allah will say, “O Jesus, Son of Mary, did you say to the people, ‘Take me and my mother as deities besides Allah?'” He will say, “Exalted are You! It was not for me to say that to which I have no right. If I had said it, You would have known it. You know what is within myself, and I do not know what is within Yourself. Indeed, it is You who is Knower of the unseen.”

From; https://quran.com/5/116-120?translations=20

Here God is questioning Jesus and Mary about the claim that they are divinities. Therefore, Muslims claim that Christians believe in God, Jesus and Mary and that this makes the Trinity.  Why could this idea come up in the Koran and could this be interpreted in another way? This is another question but it is very interesting that Kosmades says the following;


 The doctrine of Tathlis (=Turkish word for Trinity) has to do with the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.  How could it be that Mary finds her way into the three-in-one one-in-three godhead?  At no period in history has it ever been heard that the Christian faith espoused such an earthly and ridiculous belief.  Deviation to such a disparaging assumption has been rebuffed more profoundly by Trinitarian Christians than by the Islamic rejection of it.  People who have believed in the triune godhead never allowed such a preposterous invasion of the truth of the Trinity.  It is self-evident that in the Quran a viewpoint is proposed which runs contrary to the historical-theological course.  At this juncture we are reminded of the obligation to be conscientious in the objective search for truth.  Truth does not allow anyone an escape route.  From where could the prophet of Islam have gathered this information which is without concrete confirmation?  The person who takes up an objective historic study will encounter no difficulty in obtaining the right answer to the belief of Islam.    (From Cosmades)
