Quran: Criticism against the Notion of Trinity

from Surat An-Nisā' (via quran.com):

  • 4:170

    O Mankind, the Messenger has come to you with the truth from your Lord, so believe; it is better for you. But if you disbelieve - then indeed, to Allah belongs whatever is in the heavens and earth. And ever is Allah Knowing and Wise.


  • 4:171

    O People of the Scripture, do not commit excess in your religion or say about Allah except the truth. The Messiah, Jesus, the son of Mary, was but a messenger of Allah and His word which He directed to Mary and a soul [created at a command] from Him. So believe in Allah and His messengers. And do not say, "Three"; desist - it is better for you. Indeed, Allah is but one God. Exalted is He above having a son. To Him belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth. And sufficient is Allah as Disposer of affairs.


  • 4:172

    Never would the Messiah disdain to be a servant of Allah, nor would the angels near [to Him]. And whoever disdains His worship and is arrogant - He will gather them to Himself all together.

Surat An-Nisa' 4:34 (captured from quran.com)

“if Islam is doing such a good job of promoting women’s rights, how come all the Muslim countries are rated the lowest internationally on their treatment of women? Where as Western countries (places where Christianity is the chief religion) have the best ratings?”conservativerevolution

October 11 2012

The Taliban claimed responsibility for the attack, saying the youngster was ‘pro-West,’ had been promoting Western culture and had been speaking out against them. It justified shooting her by citing instances from the Koran in which a child or woman was killed, according to the media reports, which quoted a Taliban spokesman as saying: ‘We are dead against co-education and a secular education system.’

高橋五郎,有賀阿馬土訳『聖香蘭經』(1938年刊)の「第九十七宣言 イムランの家族」より:

  • 若し汝等大神の途道 [みち] に於て殺され,或は死するならば,然 [さ] らば大神よりの赦免と慈悲は汝等が一切 [すべて] の蓄積よりも優つてゐる。何となれば,若し汝等死し又は殺されるならば,寔 [まこと] に大神に汝等は聚 [あつ] められるであらう。

  • 大神の道に於て殺された徒を死してあると評する莫れ。否とよ,彼らは豐かに扶持されて,大神と與 [とも] に活きてゐると。

  • 彼等其の國を逃れ,其の家を去つて吾が爲に苦み,戰つて斃 [たふ] れた徒 [やから] は,我彼等より其罪を塗抹し,彼等を極樂園にて其下に河川 [かはがは] が流れる處へ携へるであらう。

高橋五郎,有賀阿馬土訳『聖香蘭經』(1938年刊)の「第84宣言 ヨナ平安」より:

  • [さ]れども復活の日に於てや,大神の分として虛僞[いつはり]を唱へた輩[ともがら]の思想[かんがへ]は如何[いかゞ]で有つたであらう,寔[げ]に大神は人間に向ひて慈恩が充ち滿て居給ふ,然るに最も多くの徒輩[ともがら]は感謝を奉らぬのである。

  • 大凡[おほよそ]天に在り地に在る物は皆大神に從屬し奉るでは無いか。然れば大神の傍[かたはら]にて彼等は何ぞ其の大神と併せ祭つた神々に從ふや,彼等は唯妄想に從ふ而己[のみ],彼等は只虛妄者であるかな!

  • 彼等は言ふ,『大神は子等[こども]を生み給ふた』と。否な! 大神の光榮を指して! 大神は自滿自足で坐[まし]ます! 凡て天に在る物及び凡て地に在る物は大神の有である! 汝等は該[か]の斷言の爲に果して應許を有つや? 何とな! 汝等は自ら知らぬ事を大神について語る耶[や]

  • 請ふ言へ,寔に彼等此の虛僞を大神に關して案出[かんがへだ]した輩は,必ず善くは參らぬであらう。一の部分を彼等は此の世に於て有[もつ]てをる! 然れば彼等は我等に歸るのである! 其時には我等彼等をして嚴刑酷罰を嘗味[あぢは]はしめるであらう,彼等は不信者だつたからである。

  • 信仰に堅固なる眞實[まこと]の宗敎へ汝の顏を向けよ,而して大神と他神[あだしがみ]を併せ祭る徒輩の徒と成る莫れ。又汝を幇けも害しも得せぬ者を大神と併せ呼ぶ莫れ。何となれば,汝若し然かするならば,汝は必ず不正不義を行ふ徒輩の一人と成るであらう。

  • 大神若し困難の手を汝に着け給はゞ,大神を外にして誰も汝を救ひ得る者は有らぬ。大神若し何等かの善益を汝に與へ給はゞ,誰も其の賜物を押へ得る者はあらぬ。大神は其の選む僕に之を施し給はん。大神は仁慈にして,恩惠に富み給ふ。
