A new section will be added to the site. This section will be concerned with spreading the right teachings of Islam as well as responding to false allegations about Islam.

The following is one of the articles:

Allegation: The Quran has classified Mary as a person in the Trinity. According to the Quran (Surah 5:116, 5:73-75) the Christians believe in "three Gods" - Father, Mother, and Son. In contrast, Christianity has always distinctly stated that the Trinity is the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Nowhere in the Bible is the Trinity mentioned as Father, Son and Mother!!

Reply:

First of all let us read the Quranic text. Allah the Almighty says:
{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.}[al-Maidah 5:116]


Christians themselves have committed the mistake, not the Quran, since if anyone reads Surah al-Maidah 5:116 (the above quoted verse) they will see that the verse says NOTHING about a Trinity. So we need to ask our Christian friends from where do they imply that this verse is mentioning the Trinity? It is no-where here in this verse, neither does it discuss a triune God. In fact, what the same chapter says in the following, mentions the trinity:
{They have certainly disbelieved who say, "Allah is the third of three." And there is no god except one God. And if they donot desist from what they are saying, there will surely afflict the disbelievers among them a painful punishment.}[al-Madiah 5:73: (http://www.islamawakened.com/Quran/5/73/default.htm)]



Also, let us read:
{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.} [al-Nisa' 4: 171]


Here, there is nothing about Mary in a trinity. So already we can see a problem with the Christian argument, the Quran when it criticizes the Trinity it mentions the Trinity quite clearly, and when it does so it says nothing about Mary being involved within the Trinity. So the Quran attacks both the Trinity as blasphemy, as well as Christians who have wrongly increased the status of Mary to such a high level that she has become like a god
.

A simple glance at the present day Christians, especially the Catholics and Orthodox, is sufficient to show that they indeed worship Virgin Mary and address their prayers to her. This is no different if you look at the history of Christian nations. The recent proclamation of the Pope relating to the bodily assumption of Mary supports this conclusion



Every Christian can search the internet to see where "Mary Worship" came from?
