Islamic views

Islam considers Jesus to be a prophet, but not divine,[149] and Allah to be absolutely indivisible (a concept known as tawhid).[150] Several verses of the Quran state that the doctrine of the Trinity is blasphemous.[151][152]

"Say: He is God, the One and Only; God, the Eternal, Absolute; He begetteth not, nor is He begotten; And there is none like unto Him.

— Qur'an, sura 112 (Al-Ikhlas), ayat 1–4[153]

Certainly they disbelieve who say: Surely Allah is the third (person) of the three; and there is no god but the one Allah, and if they desist not from what they say, a painful chastisement shall befall those among them who disbelieve.

— Quran, sura 5 (Al-Ma'ida), ayat 73[154]

And when Allah will say: O Isa son of Marium! did you say to men, Take me and my mother for two gods besides Allah he will say: Glory be to Thee, it did not befit me that I should say what I had no right to (say); if I had said it, Thou wouldst indeed have known it; Thou knowest what is in my mind, and I do not know what is in Thy mind, surely Thou art the great Knower of the unseen things.

— Quran, sura 5 (Al-Ma'ida), ayat 116[155]

Interpretation of these verses by modern scholars has been varied.[156][157] Verse 5:73 has been interpreted as a potential criticism of Syriac literature that references Jesus as "the third of three" and thus an attack on the view that Christ was divine.[158]

Edward Hulmes writes:

"The Qur'anic interpretation of trinitarian orthodoxy as belief in the Father, the Son, and the Virgin Mary, may owe less to a misunderstanding of the New Testament itself than to a recognition of the role accorded by local Christians (see Choloridians) to Mary as mother in a special sense."[159]

There is also debate about whether this verse should be taken literally.[160] For example, Thomas states that verse 5:116 need not be seen as describing actually professed beliefs, but rather, giving examples of shirk (claiming divinity for beings other than God) and a "warning against excessive devotion to Jesus and extravagant veneration of Mary, a reminder linked to the central theme of the Quran that there is only one God and He alone is to be worshipped."[156] When read in this light, it can be understood as an admonition, "Against the divinization of Jesus that is given elsewhere in the Quran and a warning against the virtual divinization of Mary in the declaration of the fifth-century church councils that she is 'God-bearer'."[156]
